Radical Sportscars Introduces SR1 Club Racer


The British car manufacturer has just announced their entry-level racecar.

Track days have always been popular, but something that has grown in popularity in recent times is track-day-only cars. Slotting in between road cars and racecars are street-legal track day machines such as the Caterham Seven or Ariel Atom, which are ideal for lapping one's local track but not so clever when it comes to daily driving. Then there's the track-only Caterham SP/300.R, which was built in partnership with Lola.

This offers enthusiasts the opportunity to own a bona fide racecar; however, these things don't come cheap. Thankfully those on a relatively conservative budget can now join the racecar owners club with Radical Sportscars new SR1 club racer and track-day car. For a more than reasonable £29,850, you get a motorcycle-based Suzuki 1.3-liter unit rated at 210hp mated to a sequential gearbox. There's also an aero package for improved downforce and Radical-specific Dunlop tires with optional wet weather slicks for mentalists that enjoy racing in the rain.
