The Little Automobile Business has proclaimed the inauguration of the United Kingdom Bugatti Infant II Tournament, providing squads with a chance to contend for grandeur in a one off competition specifically planned for the entertaining Bugatti Baby II reduced sized electrical machine.

On April 23, participants will congregate at the Bicester Scramble while the second contest will commence on May 28 at Silverstone. The series’ final event will transpire at the Radnor situated in Wales on July 2.
The last event will occur at the Prescott Hill Climb, that is also the place of residence for the Bugatti Owners Club.

Back in the year 1926, Ettore Bugatti crafted a miniature model of the Bugatti Type 35 that was destined for his son, Roland. It had a size halved from the original.
This most up-to-date model of the Baby Bugatti, which was designed in cooperation with Bugatti, paints a 3/4 scale picture of the Type 35 – much bigger than its ancestor. This newest version has been built for electricity and contains different driving modes fitting all various types of drivers and driving styles.
This newly-established championship strives to attract everyone who possesses the zeal for autos. As a team competition, parents and their children can discover a novel shared activity that will pave the way for memorable moments and help hone fledgling drivers. Though these Baby Bugattis are less expensive than a Chiron, at $62,500 they do not come in cheap.
Gratefully, purchasing a Baby Bugatti isn’t a necessity for joining the championship. During each competition, the cars will be given to contestants and they’ll gain valuable instruction from Andy Wallace–Bugatti’s test driver who has emerged triumphant in the difficult 24 Hours of Le Mans race.
At a cost of £4,950 (approximately $6,130), teams can participate in the various races and events, with catering included. Drivers should bring along their own helmet, gloves, suitable clothing and shoes. Those who are over 6 foot 2 may want to visit The Little Car Company headquarters first, as the company notes that adults “will need to be 6 foot 2 or under to fit comfortably.” As for the kids, they must be between the ages of 10-14 to be eligible to compete.
“We are offering a remarkable experience to 20 teams – the chance to drive our Bugatti Baby II in a competitive environment. It’s a dream come true for the kids who have looked up to Lewis Hamilton or Max Verstappen, and for their parents who idolize Ayrton Senna or Nigel Mansell – our event will let them follow in the footsteps of their racing heroes over the course of three days,” said Ben Hedley, CEO of the company.
