After a few teasers over the last few weeks, touring car newcomers Iris has unveiled the ONE competition car kit fully developed and designed by RUDDOG. Project lead designer Andreas Myrberg implemented countless novel and revolutionary features into the all-new Iris ONE. Featuring a unique pushrod design with torsion springs and a single-lever rotational shocks, the centre-of-gravity is super low, thus improving overall performance. Combined with sturdy double wishbones, the high-performance suspension package ensures fast and consistent lap times run after run. Moreover, the newly developed pitch and heave shock improves handling under braking and high speed cornering. Together with an ultra-narrow bulkhead design, the efficient three-belt drive train results in perfect weight balance. With three identical belts, less belt tension is required than with a conventional two-belt set-up. Many unique details, such as an optional direct-mount aluminium fan, have been integrated into the design of Iris ONE to give you an edge over the competition.
Ruddog have announced that they are entering the touring car market with a new brand called Iris. ‘A completely new and innovative touring car’, it has been designed by Andreas Myrberg and will be released in autumn of 2022. No information has been made available as of yet but you can follow along with their progress on the dedicated Iris Facebook page.
