About CR01

CR01 was the first car to be made by the Cardiff Racing team. Without prior knowledge of past competitions, successes and failures to build upon a decent finish was not expected by the team, however the car still managed to post a decent result at the UK event, giving a great morale boost to the team.

CR01 was designed to be as simple as possible so that there would be no reliability issues come the event. A steel spaceframe was used for its simple construction and ease of design. This was coupled with aluminium panels for a simple but effective chassis. Sadly the car did not manage to complete the endurance event due to the lack of testing taking its toll but overall CR01 was a great start to Cardiff Racing and it has helped make the team what it is today.
