Cool Saw one of these at Oulton Park....

Rare as rockin horse **** I think uh? (Still he had the ***** to take the car out on track too!)











How big are these brakes!




Personally,I think it made the car below look a little 'ordinary'!!

Nice, looks better in black than silver like the one at Goodwood FoS this year.

Those seats, hmmm, wonder if they'd fit a classic?

Yeah exactly!!
The guy had "Oliver Morley" on his 'lid' and a quick google pointed towards Ferrari 360 racing so I wonder if he races one of those too?
Lucky lucky man (And I'd say he was mid 30's too so obviously doing ok for himself! [email protected]!! lol )

Nick/Jonty

I must have been in the other white RA cos I don't recall having a nephew!

Mine was the rally car towards the back of the car park, will teach me not to get lost on the way!!

Saw your uncle dicing with the white Evo towards the end of the day, what kind of power is his RA putting out?

There was a 360 Challenge racer there for most of the day, the guy turned up in a rather large coach.

There were some nice cars knocking around that day;

Running 300 brake. Did a 1 min 58 sec lap at best. It's the white Ra with the gold blob eye alloys, and "Fletcher" in the side window.

Spoke to him Monday night, and he mentioned the tussle with the Evo. Keep meaning to get out with him, but think he'd scare the **** of me!! He indicated to let the Evo past, so he could catch it on film, and the Evo guy thought he was taking the pi55!!

He's always been into fast motors, ever since I was little he's had loads of quick stuff:

Mk1 Lotus Cortina
Mk2 RS2000
Xr 4x4
RS Turbo
Mk5 RS2000
Cossies,
Terzo
Evo 4 RS
Evo 5
Evo 6

That is stunning. Hasn't Raikkonen got one of those as his 'company car'?

nice motor, but not as a track car... Getting to and from the track yeah.

I think you would have more fun in a cheaper car knowing that when it gets stuffed, tomorrow, we can go out and buy another.

cant see many MB dealers stocking those beasts

I don't get what you are saying....it's a track car plain and simple.....it even has a roll cage.

Whilst you and I may not be able to afford it - he sure can, and you never know, he might be able to buy another if he stacks it.

Just stumbled on this thread, and by coincidence was looking for a new car earlier (NOT)
Anyhow, in case anyone wants one......

A snip I think I'll have a silver one for in the week and a black one for weekends when the Zonda is being serviced....

i mean that they are heavy for a start, its an auto, i could go on.

That car aint a true track car is it really, an arial atom is a track car, its faster, more invloving, again, i could go on.

Sure its a really nice car, its fast, i would love one. a very impressive machine.

i could stick a roll cage in a 70ft limo, put in some buckets, that doesnt make it a track car.
