Heated driving, tail-gating and all the other descriptions that go hand in hand with these guys. It cannot be denied that they don`t give it their all. From the pace car things look peaceful but don`t let that deceive you. When the flag drops it is race time. They are all friends at the end of the day, but all are obstacles on the track during the race. Its like all motorsport, the winner prevails, but fun and safety are always relavent in these races. Each car is similar in its setup, V6 engine and wide tyres but each driver is unique. Some are true to their racing line others draft, but the majority race their hardest. To be honest that’s all that the formula needs and is.
If anyone wants to see these guys in action get to the Swaffham Raceway on the below dates and check it out for yourself, you won`t be disappointed.
