The Ralt has 18 years of ownership and development by a Volkswagen factory-sponsored, championship winning, race car driver and engineer.

We have raced against this car for several years in Historic Formula Atlantic, and can attest to its speed, reliability, and results. Most Formula Atlantics have been humbled by this RT5, which is available to win at about half the cost of getting, and racing, a current flat-bottom Formula Atlantic car.

We think the Super Vees will not stay at these prices for long with new series, like Masters, opening up new premier events for Super Vees.
