First launched in 1997, the Pickup series is for purpose built 230bhp racing specials. A tubular spaceframe chassis follows well-proven SHP Motorsport principles and the racers are pushed along by a 2 litre multi-valve twin-cam engine. Weighing in at just 900kg, these dramatic machines place the emphasis firmly on driver ability.
Racing Pickups have won the hearts of race fans and drivers alike. They are a joy to drive, and simply beg the driver to give the throttle a further prod to kick the back end out of line. Progressive power, over steer and beautifully balanced handling makes the Pickup a racer to be enjoyed, whether you are at the front or the back of the field.
