Great news…Radical Sportscars have upgraded us from an SR3 to an SR8 rolling chassis and bodywork! And if you hadn’t heard already, the SR8 is the fastest track car in the world! (see http://www.radicalsportscars.com/news/international-news/2009/09/03/the-n-rburgring-story-part-one).
This is quite amazing for us as it is a stronger chassis with more space in the rear for our batteries and motors, and the bodywork is more suited to our needs. As such, this upgrade is music to our engineers’ ears!
Considering that a brand new SR8 costs up to £120,000, and adding to this the huge amount of time and effort that Radical employees are putting into making RGE a success, this takes our entire project-wide sponsorship tally to over £200,000 of in-kind support. As always, our continued thanks go out to all our sponsors.
