Radical Sportscars are a British motorsport design and engineering success story that we should all be proud of.
The UK has long been a hotbed of motorsport cottage industry with many Formula One teams based in good ol’ Blighty, and many other specialist automotive and motorsport manufacturers also. And makers of one of the very fastest, best-value and easily best-looking track day and competition cars is Radical Sportscars, based in Peterborough.
In this behind the scenes video from Performance Direct, we meet the man behind the radical Radicals, Phil Abbott, and take a good look around his impressive factory set-up where up to five of the lightweight rippers are built every week.
With plenty of lap records under their belts – most recently this incredible record-breaking run around the so-tight Cholmondley Pageant of Power sprint track – it’s no wonder that these track and road weapons are making their way to racetracks all over the world, as quickly as the Radical team can build them. Impressive aero, a stunning power-to-weight ratio and high-G cornering and braking prowess are seriously attractive attributes to the clubman and pro racer alike.
Our Performance Direct video has everything you need to know about Radical Sportscars, including how they sound at full chat on the dyno. And that’s downright awesome, by the way!
