Cars

Chevrolet Camaro

BMW 2002

Abarth 1000 TC Berlina

Before they were sold to Fiat Abarth was a successful racing team. And among other things they purpose built the 1000 TC for touring car racing. The result was that it was a success in the small classes of the ETCC. The fact that it’s small will also help through the corners.

Ford Escort

Alfa Romo Guilia Super 1600

NSU 1200 TT

Holden Torana LJ

Ford Anglia

Ford Mustang

One of the classic muscle cars of all time. Rear wheel drive and a lot of power was the recipe for this iconic car. The speed it could produce made it a worthy adversary to the smaller cars. However it had so much power it was slow through the corners.

Alfa Romeo GT Junior

Austin Mini Cooper S

Datsun 120Y

Nissan’s today are all labelled with the joke that they are “Datsuns” but but in the day the Datsun was a reliable machine. Could this be a factor in the championship outcome? The fact that it’s small will also help through the corners

Fiat 128 Coupé

Ford Galaxie

Hillman Imp

Jaguar MK2

Lotus Cortina

Mercedes 300 SEL

Sunbeam Tiger

Toyota Celica GT

Triumph Dolomite Sprint

Volkswagen Beetle

Famously linked to “Herbie” this car is known throughout the world. This small car is low on power. But it’s size means it’ll be light. And that means speed through the corners.

Renault R8 Gordini
