The New Radical SR8 has arrived, our customer has swapped his SR3 SL for the V8 powered SR8. We were at Snetterton Circuit with DFR and with Radical sports cars to Shakedown and swap the cars. We worked with a Radical Technician who was to shake the car down with Ian Flux before are customer got to drive. The SR8 is in another league compared to the SR3 SL, Set-up is critical with the car and we can’t wait to get going with it. We have a Test in October then the first race with the car at the Walter Hayes Trophy at Silverstone. Keep checking back for more news on us running the SR8.
