Avatar ready for race dis­tri­bu­tion

Motor Sport News - - Racing News -

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.”

Avatar is race-ready
