Schumacher Press Release – New Schumacher Eclipse 3 Launched

0

With its radical new look, full length carbon fibre top deck and chassis, tweak free battery mounting system and awesome centre pivot design, the Schumacher ECLIPSE 3 is as good looking as it is fast. Building on the international success of the Eclipse 2 platform, with its European Stock Championship and Modified Vice Championship, the ECLIPSE 3 takes LMP12 racing another huge leap forward. The quality, ease of assembly and build process have also been improved, to offer excellent durability and rapid lap times.
The Schumacher ECLIPSE 3, leading the pack.

In the hands of Olly Jefferies the prototype Eclipse 3 has won 3 of the 4 BRCA Nationals it has competed in this season!
