The Sausage-shaped cars are generally Group 4 "Formula Vee" cars, with a Volkswagen engine and driveline, but with a purpose-built tube frame chassis and fiberglass body. The really oldey-timey ones with tall wire wheels are Goup 1 - pre-war. The dedicated race cars are probably Group 3 - Sports Racing Cars. My favorite.
By and large, these cars are not crazy powerhouses. They tend to hover around the 80 hp mark. However, they are crazy lightweight, which means you don't need a lot of power to get around the circuit in a hurry.
As usual, click each picture for a big version. There's lots of them. More to come.
I'll try to identify the cars in the pictures but as I'm not an expert, feel free to correct me in the comments. Share and enjoy.

"Titan"? Not sure if that's just the body.
|This is an Austin-Healey Frogeye Sprite to my eye,|
but the badge says "Cobra". I'm confused.
|Formula Vee "Caldwell?".|
|A Lotus 7.|
|A PROPER Mini!|
