Spark Racing Serial in Mexico

43 posts in this topic

A new very good news for us in Mexico, Pepe Montaño (NASCAR Corona Series Mexico pilot for Toyota) is organizing a new serial just for SPARKS, the only mods permitted and made by his crew in a Chevrolet Dealer are:

1. Safety cage same as used in WTC

2. OMP seat

3. OMP 5 point seat belt

4. Bilstein shocks absorbers

5. Cutout for the escape (this increased 9hp)

6. Master power switch for emergency

The serial is intended for those who want to initiate in racing no matter the age, all cars will be the same, you can buy the car ready for racing or they prepare your own, the car will remain functional for every day driving (the cutout in the escape is sealed after the race and the escape gases rerouted thru original piping of car), the price for all this is about 3,250USD and each race will cost about 200USD + gas. Maximum cars allowed per race 40. They already sold 11 in less than 2 month .

Even it's in Spanish I'll leave you the official brochure here: http://sparkclub.mx/docs/sol_vd_cup.pdf

The roll bar in that thing looks mean! Hopefully it never has to be put to use.

did you know, there was this lady who drove in to a vally and fal 70 meters down and was able to step out of the wrack?

ofcourse she had luck, but with al the airbacks the Spark is very safe :)

sorry, but it is in dutch:

Vrouw ongedeerd na 70 meter diepe crash met wagen

Een vrouw heeft onwaarschijnlijk veel geluk gehad in Zuid-Afrika toen ze met haar wagen van de baan sukkelde en zeventing meter diep in een ravijn stortte. Ze hield nauwelijks een paar schrammetjes en blauwe plekken over aan de crash en klauterde via de rotsen helemaal op eigen kracht terug naar boven.

De 28-jarige Zuid-Afrikaanse verloor de controle over het stuur in Llandudno. De neus van haar wagen raakte geklemd tussen twee grote rotsblokken. Volgens politiewoordvoerder Ricardo Davids was ze onderweg van Hout Bay naar Camps Bay. Een collega zag hoe de dappere chauffeur uit haar verhakkelde Chevrolet Spark kroop en langs de rotsen uit het ravijn klom. Ze werd met een paar schrammen en blauwe plekken naar een ziekenhuis gebracht in Cape Town waarna een gespecialiseerde firma het wrak uit het diepe haalde. (vsv)
