Aussie Race Cars

Aussie Racing Cars (ARC) are pure-bred race cars designed and custom-built in in a dedicated assembly facility at Game Over. The cars are about 1/3 the size of a regular V8 Supercar with their small size enabling thrilling four-wide braking, overtaking and quick acceleration to a speed in excess of 240kph. The cars are powered by a 1.2 litre, 125bph, twin-cam, 16 valve engine that revs to 11500rpm. Despite their size they are the most exhilarating race cars to drive and the most exciting racing to watch.

Game Over is also the headquarters for ARC Category Management. The ARC Category & Event Management Company is the largest national racing championship in Australia in terms of consistent competitor numbers. Over 50 cars often line up on the grid to contest the events which are held in tandem with the V8 Supercars.
