A racing car is a car equipped for the practice of motorsport. These cars are usually very expensive due to the advanced and high technological materials that the car can contain. Aerodynamics play a major role in a race car. Formula 1 cars, for example, are very aerodynamically built to have as little air resistance as possible at maximum speeds.
The big difference compared to the passenger car is that the engine of a racing car is many times more powerful. This power is increased with the help of technology, up to ten times that of a normal car. However, some cars are less sophisticated. These are often used in competitions where all participants drive the same type of car. The winner of these types of races can only distinguish himself in these types of races by the driving style and not by the car itself. The races were initially mainly held on the street, but over the years special race circuits were built, such as the well-known Nürburgring in Germany.
Speed competitions were held almost immediately after the invention of the car in 1985. Initially it was the newspapers that organized them, not much different from the cycling races organized by them. There are now many big and well-known competitions such as the 24H Daytona and the 24H Le Mans. View in the description of our scale models in which competition the cars participated.
