Backdraft Racing: Vintage Roadsters With Modern Speed

Sure, you could go out and buy a classic Shelby Cobra, but that’s not a car you’ll want to track or use as a daily driver. For everyday use on the road or at the track are the  custom Cobra kit cars. These roadsters combine 21st century technology with classic styling in a harmonious way.

The company was founded by two world champion auto racers, Tony Martin and Reg Dodd. Over the years Backdraft Racing has grown to offer four different versions of their Cobra kit cars, the RT3, RT3B, RTX and the extreme TD, for “Track Day.” Each features a high-quality, one-piece glass -reinforced plastic (GRP) molding with extra reinforcement for the wheel arches. Underneath these bodies is a sturdy ladder-type chassis crafted from SAE 1008 2- x 4-inch rectangular steel tubing.
