ERA HSS - Single Seater - Historic single seat
Historically the original ERA marque was very important. It was formed by Raymond Mays a leading driver of the 1930’s and the first ERA made a public demonstration at the Brooklands circuit in May 1934. The ERA racing cars went on to represent Britain in international events and bring regular success. After World War Two, Raymond Mays set about forming BRM (British Racing Motors) this mark eventually going on to be World champions in 1962 with Graham Hill driving. Raymond Mays was deservedly made a Commander of the British Empire in 1978. The magic of the name ERA and others like Lotus and BRM will always have a firm place in the hearts of real motorsport enthusiasts.
The ERA Models
Tiger now manufacture the new English Racing Automobiles. The current models are the ERA Single Seater and the ERA 30.
These are now in full production after a massive development programme spanning over two years with extensive testing on both road and track. This has now culminated in increased production with the availability of a broad range of high quality products for motorsport and general use. These incorporate road going sportscar models, racing cars, as well as individual bespoke components.
All development, design, moulding and construction is accomplished in-house to guarantee our standard of quality. Benefiting from the many years of experience gained by Tiger racing, both the ERA Single Seater and the ERA 30 are making their mark on the race track as depicted in the Racing Section later in this brochure covering all Tiger models on the track.car.
