What is actually the difference between sports cars and race cars?
As Sports car is the term used to describe production cars that are also registered on the road. In order to comply with the road traffic regulations, certain conditions must be met with regard to minimum ground clearance, lighting, license plates, etc. be fulfilled. Well-known sports cars come, for example, from Porsche or Audi. A Race car on the other hand does not have to follow these regulations, because these cars were designed especially for the race track. They often have more than 500 hp. Well-known racing car brands are for example McLaren or Mosler.
A brief digression into the history of racing
Automotive sports can now look back on a remarkable history – because it has been around since over 125 years. In 1894, the first car race took place: 102 vehicles registered for the 126-kilometer route from Paris to Rouen, 15 reached the finish line. In 1906, the first Grand Prix of France took place and with it the first circuit race. The first reliability race was held in Germany in 1905, and the first race in the new Formula 1 World Championship was held in England in 1950. With this historical knowledge, your experience on the race track will feel even better, right??
