2010 Chevron GR8
The Chevron GR8 has been designed to be a as a modern interpretation of the classic Chevron B8 competition GT. There are no creature comforts, just pure adrenalin fueled racing.
he GR8 Challenge was established to give drivers the GT experience without the huge expense of Ferraris and Porsches. We have found over the 14 rounds in 2010 the drivers have spent an unbelievably low amount on running costs. With Cosworth supplying a 12 month warranty (or 30 hours running time) on the engines; plus being the only manufacturer to supply a crack test certificate along with the most recognised names in motorsport suppling components we have built a car to take on the intense demands of motorsport.
We have designed the car to be capable of being used in many GT series without much modification such as British GT, GT Cup, Britcar, Belcar plus local and european sports car series.
