This is the car that put the Red Victor Racing team on the "map"!


From the humble beginnings of RV1, this took the team from just a small UK racing team to a world recognised one. This car was mostly built in a small lock up garage from scratch. Frosty is proud of the fact that this car was a home built effort!

Well we're one week away from the start of another new season.Big news for us is the signing up of a couple of new sponsors.Mickey Thompson tyres are a world renowned company and the team are honoured to have an association with this great company.We're looking forward to working closely with them to develop the best street tyre on the worlds quickest street legal car....
We also welcome Activ8.We have been using their universal friction reducer for some time in not only RV2 but in all our normal cars.We're pleased to say that results are very positive.Again we're looking forward to working with them to bring their product name to the masses and also to develop their product in ultra high HP applications.
The other main news is that the car is ready to roll for the first time ever!! Usually we're working flat out right up to the night before Easter.Unfortunately the race truck isn't ready.We will need to be working on that up to Wednesday night instead......
See you all at the track
