Firstly I thought it was an interesting side note to this release that the alternate version is the D (Dirt) rather than the namesake, the reverse of the B5 series where the B5 was a dirt car, and the B5M the mid mounted alternate if you like.

That said, the car certainly looks like a big step forward from the B5 which seemed more of an evolution of the B5 design. Either way, it’s always exciting to see new designs hitting the market, and it will be interesting to see them hit the tracks soon.
