Picture from Snetterton in October


The car is still in Essex. It is being used as a template for the next chassis at the moment, they are measuring up and making spare wishbones etc etc. The engine/box is having a new plate made for the new car which will drop the engine package by 18mm in the chassis.

Mine is chassis No3 and the other one (chassis No2 as it goes) will be out in the OSS Endurance series next year with the lowered engine. Any developments will be feed back either way and I'll get to drive the other car.

In the near future I'll be having a seat fitting session and will be getting the car and trailer wrapped. I should have the car in Kent over the Xmas period. I have a test day in early March at Blyton and then the British Sprint Series starts in late March. I'm hoping to do a few track days Jan/Feb just to get some seat time as much as anything.

These are some ideas for the wrap. The Blue will be a mid metallic blue and the white is a pearl vinyl.

Looks great Jeff,

Personally I prefer the bottom graphics but that's just my preference. Would love to watch the car in action, hope the development goes well.

What engine is this running?

Good luck.

All the best - that looks a superb car, you must be really looking forward to getting it all finalised - I also prefer the bottom one with more white.

Oh okay, still the car looks great. Is the day at Blyton a private track day?

The 3rd March date at Blyton is private in the sense it is only a limited number of car running/testing but I don't think there would be an issue if you wanted to come and watch.

Bugger, typical as I'm on shift that day. I would like to have seen that run, guess I will have to try and make it to one of the sprint events.

Thanks anyway.

Iíve been and watched my old car at Blyton.

Just park out of the way and walk twenty yards to prety much the only viewing area.
