Thundercat Racing is the ultimate spectators sport, it's close to shore circuits ensures all the action can be seen from the comfort of your deck chair! The series is made up of two classes, with new comers encouraged to join the ‘standard’ out of the box class where zero modifications are permitted. Equally competitive is the ‘Blueprint’ class where competitors can increase engine capacity to push speeds in excess of 60mph! The 2011 season is fast approaching with the first RYA national event kicking off in the picturesque seaside town of Teignmouth on 28th - 29th May.
