Awesome!

Just dawned on me that the chassis would make a great all terrain fire fighting and rescue vehicle with water cannon and an armoured / insulated trailer and multiple redundant protective systems (i.e. sprinklers, CO2 dousing systems, AFFF, etc.)

I said this elsewhere but this thing is too darn cool! Not only a great looking race tank but it would be great "re-militarized" as a manned or autonomous recce scout or light infantry fire support vehicle.

There is cross country, race track (with or without obstacles), perhaps 300ft drag racing.

Tracked Land Speed Record:

As promised, the German (Team Warsteiner) counterpart to Team Claymore's cut down Challenger 1.  These high performance machines were to set the standard for all future Formula Tank Class 30 racers...
