now as you may have gathered by now i have not yet had my first attemptat actually driving on track - not through want of trying ;-) and exercising my powers of persuasion.

so the lovely and slightly daft alex has now planted the thought in my head of me getting my own track toy Very Happy
anything would be considered and you are all welcome to air your views- bear in mind folks 1000 limit and must be auto or semi auto....

like this maybe;

Seriously think about the mini Razz

Cooper engines fit directly onto the box, run some webber carbs and a cage you'll soon be outdriving most bigger stuff!

Do it Razz

that yellow 7 at Combe last year had flappy paddles on it, but to be blunt the chance of you getting something like that before I do are so vanishingly small as to be invisble to the naked eye

The 7 was bike engined, so sequential not semi sadly.

You could easily mate a sierra or granada auto box would easily mate to a mondeo zetec Wink
