Radicals

I was considering 1 of the Radical Championships for next year, but would obviously like to know a bit first!!

1)Whats the difference lap times wise between the Introsport/Clubsport and the Prosport/SR3

2)How much does it cost to run for a year, either by running the car myself (if its still possible to be competitive while doing this), or professionally?

3)I also heard at the end of last year! that Radical were planning to do a series of 1000km races. Are these going to happen?

I would like to know also. These radicals look awesome - nothing like them that I know of racing in Oz more the pity.

Radicals are insane - especially in the wet (Sunday at Lydden there were some very sideways cars!). No idea on costs but they all seem to carry spare bodywork about with them.....

Radicals belong in room 101.

They are covered wheelers, so the powers that be on test days put them out with saloons.

Without fail they will spend the day strutting around with their steering wheel in one hand, and crash helmet in the other, like fairy versions of ****ing F1 drivers, then plant the lot in the gravel within 5 mins of the start of the session. The rest of the session is spent watching them being extracted, thus ensuring you don't get enough track time for a setup.

After the test day they then crash into eachother with monotonous regularity until the one intact car crosses the line.

Poxy bloody things.

p.s Fantastic business though, I wish I'd thought of it!

May be opinionated but may be bloody right too! 'Many' radical drivers can't drive remotely fast and are purely there to pose (and be parted from their cash)

Yeah, you cheeky get!

FF1600, FF Zetec, FRenault, F3, URS FF2000, FVee, F4, MonoPosto, EuroBOSS, SCV8 - you may be detecting a strong single-seater bias here of course.

I love the Radical cars actually - it's just the drivers I don't like! Take over half the ****ing paddock with BMWs, 40 foot trucks and massive motorhomes, always off in the gravel in testing and like watching paint dry racing...

I hate to say it as I love the SR3, but it does seem to be a case of throw as much cash at your car as possible and sod the driving tuition. Radical are onto a right winner, and they know it.

I'm sure Radicals are fun to drive, but I'd rather gnaw my own leg off than watch them "race"!

Not just test days - they race in a mixed bag of cars at the SEMSEC meetings 'sports and saloons' or something similar. It's a pretty varied grid - radicals, Jades, Westfields, Caterhams, Cosworths, Minis, silhouettes of various things (metro, mini and imp), I think there was a BMW out there as well.

The rain on Sunday certainly made it interesting - the Jades and Radicals normally run off and hide but the wet weather meant that the saloons etc could play with them as they struggled for grip (it started raining on the green flag lap - everyone was on slicks).

Generally the radicals at SEMSEC meets don't get bashed up too much but I guess that's because they'd have to be stupid to argue with a cosworth.
