When it comes to the ultimate trackday driving experience, for sheer thrills, purity of handling and outstanding performance, nothing comes close to a Radical sportscar. From the diminutive SR4 CS to the incredible SR8 RX, all offer the same blend of mind-bending aerodynamics, sure-footed handling, high revs and staggering braking ability.
The newest addition to the Radical stable, the SR3 SL, has already proven itself as the track and road car benchmark, voted 2011 'Trackday Car Of The Year' by respected motoring magazine EVO. As part of the testing, EVO recorded a lap time that put it top of the leaderboard on Bedford Autodrome's 'How Fast' timed trackdays; a 1:15.9 lap time also makes the SR3 SL one of the three fastest cars EVO has ever tested at Bedford.
And the fastest? The SR8 RX of course, with an incredible 1:13.6 lap time - on road tyres. Genuine LMP pace combined with surprisingly docile and responsive handling, makes the SR8 RX the car of choice for the trackday regular. Few cars come close to its performance on any given lap.
You only have to ask the following trackday experience providers, who use Radicals day-in, day-out to offer thrilling, safe, cost-effective laps to trackday rookies and experienced motoring enthusiasts alike. All offer passenger hotlaps and driving experiences at a number of circuits around the UK and Europe.

By specialising in producing cars that reward the driver in this way, Radical has contributed to the popularity of the trackday scene itself, and with intuitive, honed handling and grip, it is the perfect car for learning the skills of fast, consistent driving, without the need for a racing licence.
A Radical responds like a single-seater, having the same precise, apex-hitting handling characteristics, along with light controls and powerful brakes, wet or dry. But it has the added benefit of a passenger seat, so an instructor can be there with you to help perfect your lines and technique.
