GMS / MiniCup Racecars
MiniCup racecars are a nationally recognized class, that offer a fully caged, fully suspended NASCAR style chassis, powered by an affordable Honda 400cc engine. GMS chose this entry level racer as our driver development platform, because of it’s safety, adjustability and simplicity. A great entry level class, and often an appropriate step up from Karts, because of the adjustable chassis. As basic as these cars are, a driver that fully understands how to properly tune a MiniCup, will have the ability to communicate effectively with professional crew chiefs anywhere.
If you ready to purchase a MiniCup, GMS has new cars available for immediate delivery. Easy to maintain, economical and Eco friendly as they use less than a quart of oil, and can practice, qualify and race on about a gallon of regular pump gasoline.Small enough to fit in a back of a pickup truck…no trailer needed!
