Damn, Im so jealous to Jon at the moment... :( Seems like he is getting a really awesome car. Cant believe, that spec and that fast car is only 3500£... I´m speechless...  If Bobfish doesent change his mind :D

But most important is that car is going to good home and Jon will take care of it. (if he doesent crash it! ;) )

Ive got people queuing up to buy it mate! :)  I priced it as it is, maybe a bit low but wanted it to sell.  To be fair it does need loads of little bits doing to it (Which I've explained to Jon) so i'd feel bad selling it at "full working car" price.  He's got a fair bit to sort out on it but hopefully he has the time and the space to do what I didn't, and she will soon live on and continue to embarass lots of expensive machinery!

I'll bring my GT86 down to a track day with Jon at some point when he's got her going again.  Maybe he'd be kind enough to let me have a go ;)

Power is nothing without control. Weight is enemy of performance, handling and braking.

Talking about crashes, this is friend of mine, in our home racetrack Ahvenisto. He is fighting with his Imp against stupid Fords and Opels. This is seasons 4th race and same dude with Ford has hitted him 3 times in this season allready. So, reaction at end is justified... ;)

yeah, not sure what mr escort thought he was doing there.  Left him nowhere to go even though he was on the outside! Hopefully he got disciplined.
