Nah, they've got huge areas for seeing through to the left and right of your head.

Looks a tidy car - hadn't read this thread before but fair play to you.

Having a good mate to help with the shitty jobs does defy insanity. Have two or three good mates who will always muck in whatever that job, although one is a bit far away now in Oz!

Miss my Rallye. Sad

A few pics from the last 2 years..


Snetterton.


Anglesey.


Oulton.


Nurburgring GP circuit.


Die Nordschleife

We made way too little use of it this year but will definitely rectify that in 2012.

Smile


This statement made two years ago never came true.. In fact this awesome car hasn't been used in anger for a year and a half.

Due to rather large life changes for Dave's family and my own it is very likely that this car will be up for sale very soon.

A shame but we can't see when it will ever get used on track again.

I'll put up a thread soon if anybody on here is interested - value.. no idea yet but obviously no where near the £10,000 + that we've spent on it since 2009.

Depends what you mean by serious Jim.. Dave has just taken delivery of his second son! LOL

No nothing negative but rather a never ending path of zero spare time.

I don't want to remember the fun we had in this thing because I'd probably find some excuse to keep it sorn'd for another year.

Jeez, stop procrastinating and go use it for an evening trackday. Got to be three or four times a year you can take a day to yourself. I thought you might be ill or unable to drive the way you were talking. Get on it man! LOL

Stan's a 1950's gentleman who sits in his dining room with the door shut on a weekend listening to uplifting poetry on the radio with Saturday morning kitchen muted in the background sipping PG Tips from a large 6 cup Thermos while his wife is struggling to clean, cook pies and look after their crawling son all at the same time with nil support.

And she has to go out to the garage every 6 hours to roll the car either forward or back by 10". Day and night.
