Vehicle spotlight – Skip Barber

Haven’t spent much time with the Skippy lately but was testing some combos today and was thinking about the many great things about this vehicle and wanted to record them.

To begin with, this car is incredibly versatile.  No other car has more great combos than the Skippy.  One of the reasons for this is that the car is great at both short and medium tracks.  It is plenty nimble for Mores or Euroring but can also demand constant attention at longer tracks due to the high degree of balance and throttle control it demands.  The availability of both slick and street tires just adds to the flexibility.

Another way this car shines is that it embodies the magic combination of being both fun and challenging at the same time which, again, is further supported by the tire options.

And if that’s not enough, the car is also the vehicle used by the Skip Barber training school, is the main character in ‘Going Faster’ an excellent training video freely available on You Tube (thanks, Skip!), and is even accompanied in rF2 by Lime Rock Park, a real-life location of the Skip Barber racing school.

There are undoubtedly many more but combos certified by Irreverent Racers include Euroring, Mores, Toban, Motorsports Ranch, Putnam Park and Phillip Island.
