And Racing Edge’s alternative 2020 osCARS winner is… the 1994 Tyrrell F1 022-3! All race cars featured on the Paddock sound incredible. But this beautiful single-seater produces a glorious V10 roar. One that echoed across the world’s most famous racetracks during the notorious 90s era of F1. The Tyrrell name will be forever associated with F1 and the team won it all during its glory years. F1 cars are rare on the market – and this one was raced at Jerez, Suzuka and Adelaide in the 1994 FIA season. It is an exceptional track-ready machine.

Cup Cars are fantastic race cars with big power, sharp handling and good reliability. This Porsche is in excellent condition and has achieved many podiums in its racing history.

Best Supporting Race Car
We now move to the penultimate category in Racing Edge’s alternative 2020 osCARS – Best Supporting Race Car. We’ll be honest – all race cars featured on the Paddock could be nominated for this award. From hyper cars to super cars, Cup Cars to single seaters – whatever your preference, the Paddock caters for all.
Here are the nominations for Best Supporting Race Car:
- 2018 Aston Martin Vantage AMR Pro
- Mercedes AMG One
- Sauber-Mercedes C9

- 1980 Bob Leitzinger Datsun 280ZX
Racing Edge’s alternative 2020 osCARS award goes to… the Sauber-Mercedes C9! The incredible, astoundingly accurate rebuild of an all-time classic multiple race-winner. Over two years and 2,740 hours were put into the most authentic rebuild of a Sauber-Mercedes C9. The chassis was originally the spare from the 1989 C9, rescued from Donnigton Racetrack museum in the UK. The original car is a cult hero in Mercedes’ racing history – it was the first to run the famous ‘silver arrows’ livery. It dominated the 1989 season and ended Mercedes’ wait of over 30 years for a world championship title. Its 1989 Le Mans victory personified its supremacy. An exceptional race car, this is the ultimate throwback to one of motor racing’s finest machines. And you could own it today!

With a 700 bhp 3.8-liter 6-cylinder engine, 7-speed transmission and mostly carbon fiber composite body this Porsche is just rapid. It’s pretty exclusive too, with only 77 units produced by the German marque. And you can own this incredible racer today.
