The newest Speedbowl division, the Bandoleros began racing at the Waterford Speedbowl in June of 2009. The division has experienced steady growth and a success rate of developing future racing stars who have moved up into other race divisions.
Using the same magic formula that made the Legends Cars the most mass-produced competition car in history, officials of 600 Racing, Inc. have introduced the Bandolero Car. The Bandolero Car is a turnkey, spec-series racer designed for drivers as young as eight years old and the young-at-heart at any age.
“We wanted something to go between a kart and a car and wanted to make it relatively simple for everybody to use,” said H.A. “Humpy” Wheeler. “For example, like a kart, the Bandolero Car has left-foot braking and a centrifugal clutch so there’s no shifting of gears for a new driver to worry about. Simplicity and economy of design are evident everywhere, with 150 parts making up the entire package–just half of what goes into making a Legends Car.”
The Bandolero Car’s motivation is provided by a thumping Briggs & Stratton 570cc Vanguard engine mounted behind the driver. Small modifications have been made to the engine to bring the once 20HP stock engine to nearly 30HP.
