February 25, 2006 Building a kitcar can be one of the most rewarding experiences possible and has the added value of making truly exotic performance available and affordable. The UK remains the centre of the motor racing universe, with most Formula One race teams headquartered there, an entire support industry centred there and the largest kitcar industry of any country. The Uk kitcar industry generates UKP50 million annually, with 220 manufacturers selling around 4,500 cars a year. Last year a new type of event emerged when TotalKitCar magazine and motorsportvision staged the inaugural totalkitcar LIVE! event in September at the famous Brands Hatch racing circuit. The unique advantage of holding a kitcar show at a race circuit means manufacturers can exhibit their cars in the circuit’s race garages and the cars can be demonstrated on the racetrack for serious punters. So successful was the event that two such events will now be held annually. The Brands Hatch event will be held again this year on October 14 and there will be a second event at Oulton Park race circuit in Cheshire next month (March 25).
