Britcar Class 1 winner VR Motorsport has completed a first full test session for its new three-car line-up at Donington Park ahead of the now-postponed first race of the season. The team will run two turbo Praga R1T Evos and one naturally aspirated R1S.

Vincent Randall, VR Motorsport’s team principal, said, “We are aiming to line up on pole at the first Britcar race, as and when it is safe for all to get racing again. Obviously, our focus now is with friends, family and the UK’s motor racing community. Despite this, we remain focused and confident, and continue to plan for a successful 2020 Britcar challenge.”

Praga is entering its fourth season with Manchester’s VR Motorsport, with three cars taking to the track for the first time, in the team’s second season in Britcar. For the majority VR’s drivers, this season will be their first in an aero car that delivers more than 600hp/ton in turbo setup.

The Praga cars have proven successful in recent UK, US, Dubai and Dutch challenge race series. Built in a bespoke factory and shaken down at the challenging Slovakia Ring, just a few kilometers from the factory, the Pragas offer low weight and high levels of safety – thanks to a carbon chassis and monocoque – as well as strong aero performance and reliability.
