Silverstone Classic 2018 had the biggest and wildest line-up of vehicles ever seen at the event taking part in the Streetcar Shootout! The demo recreation of a drag strip race has become a firm favourite at the Classic and it runs twice a day on the old section of the circuit from Abbey to Bridge corner in Yellow Zone 14.
In 2018, the ever popular Taz Racing returned with a full line-up of amazing vehicles, including multi Shootout winner “Boss Taz” (Chris Skinner) back out with a full rebuild following some damage to the big V8 at the very last meeting of 2017. Also out was “Scoff Taz” (Adam Skinner), one of the youngest members from Taz Racing who suffered a broken rear linkage whilst at full tilt last year. Thankfully all the safety equipment did its job and after long winter nights in the garage, the Fiat now sports a new body, repaired rear end and a fully rebuilt Toyota 2-litre turbo engine producing an amazing 420 HP. It had already run a 10.8 second quarter mile with a terminal speed of 127mph this season!!
