After seeing "DeathRace" Im planning an auto-duel type game for our club. Ive decided on a set of rules and have begun modifying some Matchbox 1:64 models. Im looking for some figures to represent the drivers and side-kicks when they leave the vehicle, not to mention some security types. 20mm I think should work fine… but 25mm might be a close fit.

Which do you guys think would work best and do you have any links for near future or even modern figs that would fit the genre?

I think Stan Johansen has a line of products for autodueling.

Here is a link to the figures and the add on parts to convert the cars
And here is a look at some conversions I have done.
And yes while the 1/64th cars are a little larger than 20mm I think the drivers fit better in them.

if you check out your friendly local model railway store, you'll find modern car models that will glue onto a set of carwars counters.
they overhang the borders of the rectangles on the board just a bit but are quite serviceable.

here's mine using Matchbox/Howheels and 1/72 scale stuff.
