  • Mental Motorsports, Marbella appointed as Radical Motorsport’s new official dealer in Spain
  • Exclusive events coming for Mental Motorsports Car Club members, as well as current and prospective Radical owners in Spain

Peterborough (UK), Tuesday 17th January 2022; Radical Motorsport – the UK’s largest race car manufacturer – is pleased to announce the appointment of Mental Motorsports as its new official dealer in Marbella, Spain.

Mental Motorsports first opened in 2020 to offer motorsport enthusiasts across southern Spain and Portugal a chance to join likeminded people on road trips, trackdays and race weekends. Almost three years on, their Andalucian-based clubhouse has become the ultimate meeting place for petrolheads, and their exclusive car club has grown to over 200 members. The appointment of Mental Motorsports as Radical Spain builds on their last two years of success and is a well-deserved addition to the southern Europe Radical market.

Radical Spain will be based out of Mental Motorsports’ garage-turned-clubhouse in Marbella – a comprehensive motorsports garage complete with year-round maintenance, racing and storage services. Their facility also includes a professional race car workshop, showroom, racing sim room and bar area. Led by dedicated automotive enthusiasts Elger Bouwman and Saud El-Azem, and their experienced commercial and engineering teams, Radical Spain is now available for prospective and current Radical owners for spare parts, transport, maintenance, and sales enquiries.

Mental Motorsports owner Elger Bouwman said: “Radical Motorsport is an established manufacturer in Europe, and we’re pleased to now serve the many loyal Radical owners in Spain. With our support, we anticipate the track days and racing opportunities will draw more drivers to the established Radical community and we’re extremely motivated to make a big impact on the Spanish motorsport industry, as well as joining the wider Radical family.”

With the launch of the latest update to their most popular model, the SR3 XXR, and the introduction of the turbo-charged SR10 in 2020, Radical has quickly become the race car of choice for motorsport and car club members wanting faster, more competitive cars. Since it’s inception, Radical Motorsport has sold close to 3,000 cars since inception and established 12 single-make race series around the world.

The appointment of Radical Spain complements the existing Radical dealer network and is their tenth dealer in Europe. The global Radical dealer network includes over 30 other dealers serving 21 countries – all the way from Canada and the US to the Philippines, Australia and New Zealand.

Radical Motorsport Group Sales and Marketing Director Dan Redpath commented on the appointment, “We are delighted to welcome Mental Motorsports to our dealer network. We were impressed by their current facility and business ethos, that perfectly aligns with our plans following recent updates to the SR3. We are looking forward to our Spanish customers enjoying the latest model, and we look forward to working with Elger and Saud to support this market in selling, servicing, and racing Radicals in the years to come.”

Radical Spain is the latest in a series of new Radical dealer appointments across the globe, with other recent appointments including Miami, Florida.

NOTES TO EDITORS

Radical Motorsport enjoyed unprecedented growth in its 25th year, building and selling more cars in 2022 than at any other time in its history. A 33-strong global dealer network spanning 21 countries underpins this growth, and there are now 12 single-make Radical Cup championships across four different continents, including the factory-supported Hagerty Radical Cup UK and the Blue Marble Radical Cup North America.

Radical Motorsport is one of the world’s most prolific sports car manufacturers, with over 2,800 cars produced in the past 25 years. From its 1997 inception, Radical set out to create a customer-lead niche in the world of motorsport, a race-bred thrill-a-minute driving experience on the racetrack and road.

A combination of lightweight construction, superbike-derived technology and aerodynamic downforce delivers models faster than a supercar, totally driver-focused and rewarding to drive. Entering its third decade, the Radical stable includes the entry-level SR1, the best-selling SR3, turbo charged SR10, and iconic RXC available in GT3 and Spyder variants. The turbocharged SR10 was launched in early 2021 and headlines Radical’s SR product range with over 425bhp and 380lb-ft of torque for blistering performance. All models from the renowned racing car manufacturer are solely designed, engineered, and built at Radical’s Cambridgeshire headquarters, by 70 of the company’s 130-strong staff.

Radical was the first manufacturer to bring long-format, double-header endurance racing to competitive motorsport while providing comprehensive spares and technical support. The marque’s official single-make championships offer the ultimate driving experience and progressive racing ladder for prototype-style sports car racing for drivers of all abilities, while Radical’s ‘Race the World’ mission offers an end-to-end racing, training, and support network across the globe.
