This is my entry into the up and coming track racer concept competition. It's name is the Sutokashi Track Sport. Sutokashi is a new brand Japanese track car manufacture, and this is their first attempt. The car is light, really light (790kg, that is how light). I have explained about the car in great detail further down the page, so get on it. So, enjoy...
About this creation
If there is one thing you need in a track day racing car, it's 'NO COMPROMISE;
EXAMPLE 1: Exhaust pipes, who needs them? just have a tube leading straight from the engine to the outside world (Polar Bears BEWARE!)
EXAMPLE 2: Weight saving is key, if you need to leave a gap to save 15kg, go ahead
EXAMPLE 3: Carbon Fibre was God's gift to cars, so why not use it? (The black areas you see on the car are pieces of unpainted carbon fibre. They were not painted to save weight)
Plastic works on Corvettes and Lego, so it should work with a bonnet
The engine is the same compact 2.4L engine from a Radical track car
Passenger area is a little cramped, but who cares?
If you do care about your passenger area, and wanting to go a lot faster, you can have this option. the guys at Sutokashi will fit your car with the aero pack
Enlarged splitter with canards
New wider mouth
Jet fighter canopy
New widened skirt
Carbon Fibre spoiler
That concludes the aero kit
And this concludes the post. Thanks for looking, please rate and/or comment...THANKS
if it would have been possible to see a pic of the real car as comparative, it would have been nice, it s so new and exotic, I have no reference as how close you achieved, but, it looks awesome, such great lines!
man, that looks a hoot to drive!! i love this, the general shaping reminds me of a BAC mono (one of our countries best productions), very cool!! i love the 'exhaust', and the rear. i prefer the normal, as appose to the aero pack, a lot simpler and i'm not a fan of the jet-cockpit-style-windscreen. but i seriously love this, and wish i had one!! could you give me a link to the contest? awesome!
