At the race track is where we long to be. The problem is that it’s an expensive proposition. Parts, time, fuel, maintenance, and every other tiny thing you need to go racing is an exercise in emptying your bank account. Exotics Racing may have found a way to ease the pain, relatively speaking.
The Exotics Racing Series aims to offer serious wheel-to-wheel action for a fraction of what it would normally cost. A sprint race starts at just $4,990 and a multi-driver endurance race costs around $10,000. Compare those prices to seat time in a race with nearly any other race car outside of LeMons, ChumpCar, and AER, and you’re looking at a truly tremendous deal.
The spec series here uses a MitJet-sourced ride called the LV02. It’s a tube-chassis race car packing a fiberglass body and a 230-horsepower Renault four-cylinder engine. Controlling the action is a 6-speed SADEV sequential gearbox. The entire affair weighs just 1,600 pounds, which means you’re in for a thrilling ride filled with all the true race car sensations.
This is real racing, and it’s within reach of more than just the wealthy elite. It’s not cheap, but compared to the other options in the motorsports world, it might be the best bargain out there.
