I thought the same thing - interesting.

Nearly there Lee! Will be amazing once she’s up and running. Which track are you testing on?


Probably take it to silverstone, so i can get some track time there before the Birkett 6 hr Endurance Relay in October :twisted:

Yes lee take it steady. I imagine it’s going to be quite a handful. Bit like jumping out of a sports car into an F1. Both quick but one significantly quicker! Plus a few shake down runs before you really open her up would probably be good for you and the car.

To be honest you might be better off taking it to a track to get used to it rather than driving it on the road. I can remember my first drive in a 125 gearbox outfit was terrifying but withing a couple of hours it felt normal

If you take a 125 shifter kart down the M3 Andy I'm not surprised it was terrifying!! ;) :D
