Fusion Chassis

C and D Sports Racer


September 01, 2006

"The Fusion FRC-06 is a two seat, mid-engine sports racer with chromoly space frame, non-stressed engine and full bodywork. Driver protection, structural strength and construction technology comply with SCCA regulations. Low weight, stock motorcycle drive train and off-theshelf parts yield a unique combination of high performance with economy, making the car affordable to purchase and operate.

'When we first set out to design the FRC there were a few primary objectives we focused on. I think it goes without saying in this age that our first priority was safety. So we made the concept decision that the new car would have an enclosed cockpit in addition to well design crush zones. One only has to look as far as the Rolex series to validate the increased safety of the enclosed chassis.'
