Originally imported from the USA in the 1990s, these pocket rockets are one of the leading non-contact formulas around the UK, and once you see them in action you will know why!
Based on vintage American hot rod body shapes, but powered by 1200/1250cc Superbike engines, these little cars are extremely quick in a straight line and demand plenty of driving skill from some of Britain's top oval racing drivers.
The howl of their high-revving engines is a glorious sound never to be forgotten once you hear it, and the racing is always ultra-close whatever the venue, with races often undecided until the final drag to the finish line.
Legends are most popular in the USA but championships for these cars exist across the world, and UK racers regularly feature prominently in the world rankings, and some drivers have even crossed over from the UK's circuit series for these little machines.
The biggest event for the class at Spedeworth/Incarace is the annual National Championship at Hednesford, while Northampton International Raceway stages the Golden Helmet Championship, but for many the place to see these cars is under the floodlights of Birmingham amid a wonderful atmosphere or watching the drivers tackle the tight turns of Aldershot and the fast straights of Foxhall Heath Stadium, Ipswich.
