What ages can race Legend Cars?
Answer: Anyone over the age of 16 can drive a Legend Car. We have introduced the Development Series at most tracks so new drivers have the opportunity to learn Legend Car handling and hone their skills, with the input from the more seasoned drivers, without the pressure of full on, super competitive racing. This also allows the better half or the kids to have a run in your car at the same meetings, making it a true family day out at the track.

Answer: Depending on the track, Legend Cars average about 95 kph on dirt track and up to 240 kph on asphalt tracks. They are capable of greater speeds but you have to drive to the conditions.
Are they safe?
Answer: Legend Cars are very safe but they are still racing cars. You have a low centre of gravity, so roll over is rare unless you ride up on another cars wheels. If this happens, you have an extremely strong roll cage around you, safety seats, harnesses and of course, all the appropriate clothing, gloves and helmets. However, accidents can ALWAYS happen. We do everything in our power to ensure the safety of the driver at all times.
