Agreed that doesn't look like Thruxton, but that is certainly the colour scheme of the fleet that ran experiences at Thruxton. A group of RX8OC members, me included,  had a great day out down there on circuit driving the fleet a few years back.

Just to revisit, I didn't actually say it was at Thruxton  :P, just that it was one of the cars of that colour scheme we drove there. ;)

Finance dictated it had to go 13 months ago,  after 14 years in an RX8 regretted ever since.
