The Super Silhouette Championship was born on an initiative to bring together a large number of tubular steel space framed chassis vehicles clothed in a GRP body in one single Championship.
For many years this type of vehicle has been running in various race series within the UK and Europe mainly in local restricted championships. What the new management has achieved is to widen the possibilities and offer the drivers and teams a new home to join a Championship which will allow them to be shown nationally. By encouraging the drivers and teams to be more flamboyant, more colourful and to become performers and entertainers these are now cars the drivers just love to drive and love to put on a show with.
The concept is easy to understand, front engine, mid mounted gearbox, live rear axle built with cost effective components. 10 x 13 wheels and Avon controlled tyres adding the spoiler splitter to the big arched body you then have a Super Silhouette.
SHP Promotions working with the BARC have implemented a set of Sporting and Technical Regulations with a three-year plan. This is the creation of one of the most exciting Race Car Championships to be seen in the last ten years.
As race fans all we can ask from you is to get off the sofa, get in your car and come and visit the events within the Super Silhouette UK Tour calendar. With the Super Silhouettes will be the gladitorial Pickup Truck Racing Championship and by mid-season the awesome Wildcat Sprint Cars, three completely different vehicles.
The management team for all three products has a wealth of experience, understanding all three products, the drivers and their requirement from the sport. What the management offers to the competitors and yourselves is a high octane, adrenalin fuelled travelling motorsport circus full of entertainment.
