The UKV8’S cars for sale.

The cars are based on a Holden Commodore VE chassis, as you may know there are many variants of this same chassis in different countries for example here in the UK they are Vauxhall VXR8’s. The cars were originally built for a single make championship in Bahrain, they ran for a few seasons then put into storage. We plan on bringing these fire-breathing beasts from the middle east back to life here in the UK for all to see. The season is planned to consist of 7 race meetings with two or three races over a weekend. The final format is yet to be decided still, but an idea of what we are planning is here. The championship will focus on having identical cars and will be strictly scrutineered to ensure fairness for all and to allow for driver talent to prevail, the way that we believe racing should be. I hope you have a bit more of an insight to what we are trying to achieve, if you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact us. ENGINE
