Cars MVRC Sao Paulo 2018

The cars entered for the third race of the season, taking place in Sao Paulo have been released:

The cars mostly look like evolutions to the cars entered in the last race. JJR’s front fenders look very interesting though. After Variante’s victory last race, it will be interesting to see how far his car has improved. He claims nothing substantial was done. So maybe CAEdevice or JJR can once more get ahead of him.
