What is a Radical Driving Experience?
TrackDays is proud to offer a variety of exhilarating high-speed passenger rides in its portfolio, but few are as exciting as one in a Radical SR3.
Unsurprisingly, this is one of the fastest track cars in our fleet, and indeed the only dual seater racing car, and everything about it has been built for speed.
Fewer cars are quicker out of the starting block, and you would be hard pressed to match the Radical’s 0 - 60 mph performance of just 3.1 seconds being propelled by the immensely powerful Suzuki Hayabusa motorbike engine.
While its jaw-dropping acceleration is one thing, the Radical also makes the impossible possible when it comes to corner speed and braking. In fact, forget what you thought you knew as the Radical defies all motoring norms! But as much as we’d love to give you the keys, this time it’s the professional who has the skills and expertise to push the Radical to its limit.
However, the good thing about being a dual seater is that you can still enjoy the ride of your life while sitting just inches from the ground as the Radical conquers all before it. Feel G-forces like never before, as straights whizz by in the blink of an eye and high-speed corners pass like a blur.
Radical SR3 and SR5 Experiences
Have you ever thought how a motorbike engine would perform in the body of a race car? Well, you needn't wonder because it's already been done!
In 2001, British manufacturer and constructor of racing cars, Radical, completed an incredible feat of engineering excellence by doing just that – fitting a motorbike engine in the usual super lightweight frame expected of a race car.
With over 600 sold, the SR3 is one of the most popular Radical models.
And little wonder, the SR3 boasts a 1350cc motorcycle engine, 225 bhp and 0 - 60 mph in just 3.1 seconds, guaranteeing the thrill of speed on your TrackDays.co.uk radical driving experience.
Of course, as is the case with any racing car, the SR3's primary focus is one of delivering rapid track times.
But with its aerodynamic design, the SR3 also holds a slick and stylish appearance. So, as you zip around a race circuit with TrackDays.co.uk, not only will you feel the unrivalled exhilaration of speed, but also cross the chequered flag in style!
Adrenaline junkies can also buckle up in the SR5. With its ultra lightweight, ultra low profile, this model, just like its brother the SR3, is built for one thing and one thing only – speed.
Hitting maximum speeds of 155 mph, reaching 0 - 60mph in just 3.5 seconds and delivering a whopping 287 bhp, blink and you'll miss the SR5!
But the SR5 is no flash in the pan! Indeed, this race car was actually built for uphill and endurance events. In fact, from 2005 - 2008, a variation of the SR5 raced in the world famous endurance race, Le Mans.
Radical Passenger Ride Experiences
Sometimes, it's best to leave it to the professionals. After all, they know how to get the most speed out of these blisteringly fast vehicles.
That's why with TrackDays.co.uk, thrill seekers are also offered the chance to get behind the wheel of these enthralling passenger rides. You can hop in the passenger seat just inches from the ground as you experience the G Force of the Radical's unbelievable cornering, braking and acceleration as your instructor drives to his limits around the track.
Where Can I Book to Drive the Radical SR3 in the UK?
So that everyone has the chance to experience this unforgettable lightweight race car, TrackDays.co.uk has six circuits where it is available for a high-speed passenger ride.
For those in the North, Elvington Circuit in North Yorkshire and Three Sisters Circuit in Wigan both play host to the SR3 whilst those in the East Midlands can book to enjoy the ride of their life at Blyton Park in Lincolnshire.
Petrolheads in the South East needn’t miss out on the fun either as Dunsfold Park in Surrey - the home of Top Gear’s test track, no less - is where you’ll find the Radical, and in the South West, it’s the beautiful coastal circuit of Perranporth in Cornwall that the SR3 is ready to jump into the passenger seat of.
Fancy something even more turbo charged? Exclusive to our Bovingdon Airfield venue in Hertfordshire are our Blast and Thrill packages riding the SR3’s even further finessed older brother, the Radical SR5, where you can enjoy 4 or 8 miles with expert one-to-one tuition from a qualified instructor.
