AH I see, like a horses for courses thing. So no more Werrington Hill Climb and the like, but more GP type tracks.

Werrington would be OK as it is smooth but NW or Debden would be more of a challenge.

Anyway it could all come to nought as the insurance assessor has been and he reminds me the car was a Cat C (kit car that was a cat c and rebuilt with a new chassis) and that Cat C are worth 20% less straight away. They may offer well less than what I was expecting.

Bugger, fingers crossed it works out.

As i notice that the Norma has 2 seats and one might just be big enough to fit a certain person in for a passenger lap or two. Hint hint ;)

Did I mention the K20 Honda engine can get to 500BHP/300 ft lb with a Rotrex strapped to it....which would be a beast.

hmm the power dosent really interest me that much.

What does interest me is the under belly and the aero as well as the ability to corner at silly G's.
how many g's will it pull cornering and under brakes ?

Have you had any news/progress from the insurance? I saw you mentioned a Ligier on LCB does that mean the Phoenix is officially gone?

No, I was teasing Pete. Car is still here...

Trailer has been taken away although we are still discussing the price. They are still looking for comparable pricing on the car and the Range Rover has been signed off to get a new tow kit and the rear bumper sprayed.

I bought this off Ebay, just need to get the money so I have something to put in it.
