2021 Praga R1 racecar teased

 Praga 2021 teased
 2020 car was Britcar champion
 Expect improved aero, and focus on endurance racing

Praga has released teaser images of its 2021 R1 car. Alongside new, shadowy pictures, the Czech manufacturer has revealed some key details of its all new race car. 

According to new information, the successor to this year’s Britcar champion will cost €195,000, and customers will get a decent raft of updates for their money.

Most of the changes appear to be geared towards making the next R1 a better car for endurance races; a larger fuel cell should be able to increase the stint length of the new R1, and in-car pedal adjustment means it’ll be more adaptable for drivers of different sizes.

Overall performance is expected to be improved, too: new aerodynamic parts should pile on the grip, while added safety features are a welcome addition. 

Where does it race?

Like Radical, Revolution or Ginetta, Praga aims to produce a high performance, low cost car that can be run with a minimal operational crew. The 2019 R1 bagged 30 wins and podiums across Europe and the US, and the 2020 car won the Britcar championship. That success has certainly made the R1 more popular; up to 13 Praga cars could line up on the Britcar grid next year.
