Introduced in 2009 the R300 provides a unique blend of performance and affordability with some of the most competitive racing in UK motorsport. For 2014 the package has been upgraded by the option to use a SADEV sequential gearbox and mandatory Avon ZZR dry & wet tyres further enhancing an already exciting race experience.
