New Praga R1 racing car presentedNovember 30, 2020
Praga is preparing to launch a 2021 racing model.
Praga has released teasers for its 2021 R1 car. Along with the photos, the Czech manufacturer has revealed some key details of its new racing car.
According to the new information, the successor to this year’s Britcar champion will cost 195,000 euros, and buyers will receive a decent amount of updates for their money. Overall performance is expected to be improved with new aerodynamic parts to improve traction and additional safety features.
Most of the changes seem to be aimed at making the next R1 better for endurance racing. The larger fuel cell should increase the runtime of the new R1, and tweaking the pedal position in the car means it will be better suited to drivers of different heights.
Like the Radical, Revolution or Ginetta, Praga strives to produce a high-performance, low-cost vehicle that can be driven with a minimum of maintenance personnel. The 2019 R1 scored 30 victories and climbed podiums in Europe and the US, while the 2020 car won the Britcar Championship. This success has certainly made the R1 more popular. The Britcar grid could line up to 13 Praga vehicles next year.
