U.S. Legend Cars, Bandoleros Lower Minimum Age Requirements

U.S. Legend Car International and INEX executives announced that minimum age requirements for Bandoleros will move from 8 to 7 and for Legend Cars from 12 to 10, effective immediately.

The entry level Bandolero Bandit division will now include drivers ages 7 to 12, and the entry level Legend Car Young Lions division will include drivers ages 10-15, INEX, the sanctioning body for Legend Car and Bandolero events, said. National events with larger car counts may include select groupings for less experienced drivers in order for them to compete against their peers. U.S. Legend Cars International and INEX will continue to work with drivers to develop their progression at their own pace, promoting elevations to more competitive classes as their skills and performance improves, the organization said.

“Bandolero and Legend Car racing is the premier developmental platform for aspiring race car drivers, and it’s time to introduce our product to a younger demographic,” said Graham Smith, managing director of U.S. Legend Cars International. “We’re proud of the safety and affordability of our cars and look forward to working with talented, young drivers as they join our field of competitors around the world.”
