Avatar ready for race distribution
British sportscar firm Avatar took the covers off its Roadster at the Autosport Show and the car will be suitable for road use and track competition.
The Roadster is marketed as a track day car but will come with the option to add race-specific parts.
As part of its development, the car was tested at Castle Combe and has competed at the Wiltshire circuit in the hands of designer Dylan Popovic, where it claimed class wins in the Castle Combe Sports and GT Championship.
“I’ve personally raced the first one we were developing last year in the Castle Combe Sports and GTS, so it’s had a fair deal of track use during its development phase,” said Popovic. “It’s probably done a thousand laps around Castle Combe in terms of getting it established so it’s a capable car.
“We can offer a track option which will basically upgrade the brakes, suspension and shocks, that sort of thing and supply a full rollcage, and the race option will delete the windscreen and come with more aero so it would be basically a bigger splitter and a big wing, slightly more aggressive diffuser, that sort of thing. We have all the bits on the shelf, it’s pretty much as people order it, it’s available.”
