Think of all that weight saving  :great:.

Allegedly Pre-War Silver Arrows Mercs and Auto Unions were never painted just to save weight.

Bare metal and just lacquer then?   :D

Its slower round Combe by about 4 secs...1.19ish...but its far more forgiving and  driving a car as opposed to a go kart....
Its still on twin turbos running 320 bhp.
I prefer to drive this the Westy is full assault of senses and body.

Lol..its fun, no doubt about that...its awesome to drive, you just gotta be alert 100%..pretty much all the vids are in afternoon and i build up speed..but the FD you can just jump in and be consistent with a lap or 2..plus its got turbo BOOST, always fun
After a trackday in the Westy i usually fall asleep at 8pm and the next day i ache all over, like you been karting....if you dont downshift rev match in the Westy you will lock the rear up, thats scary when you gotta turn in at speed...i spent a whole day at an airfield circuit spinning out lol.
