Sports Sedans are a category unique to Australia in which vehicles are based on a production sedan.
While the cars look similar to road sedans, that is where the similarities end. The front-running cars can only be described as BIG. Big engines, big wings, big tyres and big performance. The rules allow great freedom in this category and as a result Sports Sedans are the most awesome forms of racing cars going.
When walking through the race paddock, do a quick comparison between a Sports Sedan and your own road car. They have wide, low profile tyres and huge front air dams which provide down-force to the front of the car and at the rear, huge rear wings that keep the rear tyres glued to the track.
In Sports Sedan racing, power-to-weight is everything. To promote that power, body panels are often made of lightweight materials such as carbon fibre or fiberglass, the wheels made from magnesium alloy and even the side windows are made from Perspex and windscreens made from Lexan plastics. Underneath their smooth skins, they are pure race car, designed and built in many cases from the ground up to be fast, light, agile and stunningly effective racers.
