The racing cars competed in the Sodor Road Race. Two cars were seen there, a red one and a yellow one. Also two other cars arrived from the Mainland by boat to participate in a road race across the Island. Two cars were seen: a blue car (number fifteen) and a red car (number twenty-six).
The blue car is based on a Subaru Impreza rally car and the orange car's front is loosely based on a Dodge/Chrysler/Plymouth Neon and the rest on a Peugeot 206 WRC.

Another yellow race car is based on the Mclaren M1B. The rest of the other race cars are based on the Austin Healey 100, and the Cunningham C6-R.
