Very good pics of all the racers. Particularly like the Corvette....wonder what it would look like with more of the background cropped out.

Thanks for sharing these! The combination of the modern Ducati with the vintage racer is my favourite.

Thanks for sharing these. The Corvette is deep in understeer, as you'd expect, unlike the little specials (what were they, originally? The first looks like it might have been a little Ford Anglia or Prefect at one stage) that were tail out into the corner.

Severely back focused, but the understeer still shows.

"Legends Cars" are 5/8 scale fibreglass lookalikes mounted on a standardised chassis with a Yamaha bike engine; they have no authentic "origin". Apparently, they are meant to have atrocious handling - which makes for interesting races. John Nielsen, the grand old man of Danish motor racing, tried one, with the following exchange once he stepped back out: "Does it drive well?" "No!" "Would you like another go?" "Yes!"

They sound like fun. A correct use of the word "legend" - something that never was, but makes a good story.
