" its not what you got its how you use it "
this car was built on our very first rollover jig, and was fitted with our first power steering system, since then the car has undergone another full mechanical rebuild, but it still has the original p.a.s system which has been faultless for years, the car doesnt get used much, but has been built " for use and abuse". it mainly does track days but is road legal, it is also msa log booked as we hope to do local tarmac events in it
