Driver’s View: 

Absolutely the fastest class at our club, with cars generally lapping in the low seven second bracket – that’s four seconds per lap faster than a really fast non-magnet car. Light weight and super magnets mean that no only can you get to the fastest speed quickly but also it can be sustained even in the corners. With a well set up car you only need to lift from full throttle twice per lap – an entirely different set of skills are needed to regular racing and the stakes are high because these are spindly, lightweight cars that brake easily.
