GT12 has become a popular class of racing in the UK. It was originally based on Mardave V12 cars and it was incredibly cheap to race. Schumacher was the first to offer an alternative to the V12 chassis cars with its original GT12. This started a a lot of rapid development in the class and now as you would expect there is always a push from each manufacturer to help stay on top.

There are two versions available (Released this week) a pro and std kit. It will be exciting to see how this car handles on the track.


The new ATOM includes a raft of improvements over the last version of the car, it also features an aluminium chassis, harking back to the original V12 (albeit more advanced). 
The SupaStox ATOM is the latest innovation in the exciting world of GT12 racing. It features an alloy chassis for ultra low centre of gravity, a new lightweight diff and wheels for low rotating weight, and a host of updates developed by Schumacher’s championship winning drivers and engineers.
