  3. 1340cc Radical

Eric drives a Radical 1340 and his particular vehicle comes with a bit of racing lore.  Renowned Formula 1 driver, Sebastian Vettel, was the previous driver of this car.

As the story goes, Eastern was at a competition in Florida where the team car was totaled.  Coincidentally, two Radicals were available nearby in Miami as the Race of Champions had just concluded the week prior. Both were for sale, and both had just been driven at the ROC event. But only one of those Radicals was driven by Vettel who actually won the Nation’s Cup Title at the ROC event using that car.  It was an opportunity that couldn’t be passed up. Eric now drives Vettel’s car, hence the continued use of the ROC branding, along with the orange and black livery.
