The 20 pickups of the former BRL V6 Series are for sale – Barry Maessen, son of the owner of Raceway Venray Harry Maessen, announced this on Facebook

If you have always dreamed of owning your own racing series, you now have the opportunity to buy 20 pickups of the former BRL V6 Series. According to the Facebook page of Barry Maessen, son of Raceway Venray owner Harry Maessen, information about the details and prices can be obtained in a personal conversation.

In the past, the cars in the BRL V6 Series were equipped with Ford Mondeo silhouettes. These vehicles were driven on road courses like Spa-Francorchamps, Zolder, Zandvoort and Oschersleben. At Raceway Venray the cars were used from 2011 to 2013 in the BRL V6 Series on the half-mile oval. Afterwards they were equipped with the pickup silhouettes.

The series was set to be part of the Acceleration 14 event. However, the event was cancelled within the first year. Since then there have been several attempts to reactivate the pickups at Raceway Venray, but without success. Under a new owner the vehicles could be driven on road courses and ovals.

The cars consist of a tubular frame chassis, which is covered with a silhouette. The 4,0 liter Ford V6 engine produces around 325 horsepower. The cars have a sequential gearbox, weigh almost a ton and are equipped with Hoosier tyres, which are also part of the offer.
