What is BriSCA Formula One Stock Car Racing?
BriSCA Formula One Stock Cars are purpose built, open wheeled, unlimited engine capacity single seater racing cars. Designed and constructed to a strict specification, they have evolved over a period of fifty years from a pre 1954 standard road car to today's remarkable combination of sophistication and brute force.
Born out of a requirement to circulate a 400 metre oval in the fastest possible time in the company of up to thirty other cars with similar characteristics, these 1500 kilogram motorised leviathans have the mandate to forcibly remove slower cars from the racing line whilst engaging in a multiple lap challenge that goes beyond conventional motor sport.
It's not speed, aggression or strategy, but a combination of all three that determines the real winners and projects the top drivers towards superstar status.
Just to add to the challenge for man and machine, competitors are graded. The fastest drivers, based upon careful analysis of previous performance, start at the back of the grid with the slower cars at the front, a unique format that stimulates the competitive instinct in all drivers irrespective of their starting position.
With roof colours designating capability, grids are made up of representatives from each grade.
White, Yellow, Blue and Red roofs are the sequence from the front of the grid with the top five in the country, the superstars, starting at the back.
Slow-rolling laps signal the start of each race and when the white-roofed cars come out of turn four, the green flag drops and it's action all the way, as in excess of 12500 cubic inches of engine capacity converts the arena into a supercharged, no holds barred cauldron for oval supremacy over a minimum of sixteen laps.
