Nurbrgring Lap record 6:48- SR8LM chassis number SR800073

Radical SR8LM chassis number 73 is the car that broke the Nürburgring Nordschleife track record with a time of 6 minutes 48 seconds driven by Michael Vergers. Remarkably, the record lap was done on the same set of tires that were used to drive the car from factory in England to the track in Germany. After the record lap, Phil Abbott (co-funder of Radical) said “Hey Michael , we have only used one set of tyres total, for shake down, testing, driving over from England on the road, and then doing a 6:48 ? Lap – we have another fresh set – Michael grabbed my arm and looked straight in my eyes and said , Phil – this car is not going faster today! ”  The car is powered by a 460hp 2.8L V8 engine.

First Radical - Clubsport chassis number 0001

The first Radical built and sold to the public is a Clubsport and is identified as chassis number 0001.  According to Phil Abbott (Co-Founder of Radical) chassis number 1 has a unique construction compared to other Clubsports.  Chassis number 1 was built buy a Spyder Engineering, who had built many chassis for early Lotus cars.  The initial chassis design used 3″ deep by 1″ wide sections on the lower rails and “top hat” folded sections on the floor to attach the skins.  This design was, to use Phil’s words “an awful idea”, then after a mishap in the fabrication of Chassis number 2, all of the following Radical chassis have been built by Radical.  The Radical built chassis use an improved design that uses 1″ by 1″ sections.
