For the past three years the 7 Race Series has operated as a series of stand alone events at premier circuits across the UK and, through invitation, at events in Portugal. A combination of informal competitive racing has been very successful, however following requests from drivers the 2020 season saw the inaugural ‘Toyo Tires 7 Race Series Championship’.
Each year has seen growth in driver numbers and the Championship now have two classes;
420R - the 2.0ltr Ford Duractec engine, combined with a Sadev six-speed sequential gearbox and Titan limited slip differential. The car is fitted with Bilstein racing suspension and an upgraded braking system.
1600 - a class combining the former Caterham Supersport and 310R cars, both utilising the 1.6 Ford engine albeit the 310R taking a slight advantage with the variable cam timing version of the engine and a Mazda gearbox, compared to the Ford gearbox found on the older Supersport. Both cars have limited slip differentials and lightened flywheels and the vast majority remain road registered.
‘OF’ Championship (over fifties) - a welcome attraction to a number of drivers that enjoy racing, irrespective of age, offering them the opportunity to compete for their final positions
Both classes use the fantastic Toyo R888R GG compound tyres that offer excellent grip levels in both wet and dry conditions and have sealed engines, to ensure a level playing field for all drivers. Testing restrictions are in place to ensure that time and money do not always give an advantage and strict regulations governing will again reduce the opportunity for drivers to spend unnecessarily.
