This is the car that put the Red Victor Racing team on the "map"!

 

From the humble beginnings of RV1, this took the team from just a small UK racing team to a world recognised one. This car was mostly built in a small lock up garage from scratch. Frosty is proud of the fact that this car was a home built effort!
