Many production racing categories are based around particular makes of cars - for instance, there are many Porsche racing series around the world. These are alsohttp://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Production_car_racing&action=edit called "One Make Series". Some series use a handicapped start, where the smaller cars are released up to 45 seconds ahead of the larger cars, and are slowly caught, the idea being that all the cars are together at the finish of the race.
Major races include the 24 Hours Nürburgring, Bathurst 12 Hour, Bahrain 24 Hour, Dubai 24 Hour & Malaysian 12 hour and sanctioned by organisations such as the FIA and SSCA. Normally used an entry level formula, it has grown into a stand alone series, with National, State and Club events and Championships.
In British oval racing, the term Production car racing has been used as an alternative for hot rods and a Production car world championship race was held twice in the 1970s, won by Spence Morgan in 1974 and Ralph Sanders in 1975, both driving Ford Anglias.
