Introduction


The GT1 project was the result of demand for customers who want to race a modern specification car in GT challenge type races. The competition is stiff at this end of the market as there are plenty of famous Marques who build cars such as the Ferrari 430, lotus Exige and the Porsche GT3 cup. But the Bailey GT1 has many advantages of its rivals such as lower running costs, simple to maintain about 250kgs lighter!
