An. Competition of drivers' skills, rather than vehicle performance.
A one-make racing series is one where all competitors race in identical vehicles from the same manufacturer, using the same model.

The idea behind a one-make racing series is that success will be based more on driver skill and handling of the car instead of engineering skill and budget
