These are a junior version of the adults specials classes, with a full spaceframed chassis. Some are made from 'used' adult specials.
All vehicles must use a Vauxhall Corsa 1200cc engine, plus specified Vauxhall gearboxes, original style struts and driveshafts. No engine or gearbox modifications are allowed, apart from some basic reconditioning.
With cheap donor cars plentiful and older chassis' easy and cheap to come by, this can be a very economic option for the children to enter the sport.
The engines and frames are often seen to last an entire five year career! Professionally constructed cars are also available ready built.
Drivers of these cars must be between the ages of 12 and 16 years old.
