Wasn't able to get mine on the track, but a great turnout, and looked like everyone on track had a ball!
Was loving Martins flamboyant style in the four door :D

Thanks for trusting me with a shot of your car Graham.

I am not a great fan of the Pinto engine but that engine of yours could change my thoughts. Low down the revs the engine purrs away without a fuss and feels very responsive, revs through the range without a fuss.

So different to drive from what i have been use to but shows how different these cars can be set up.
Having left my car in forest set up it spent most of the day with a front wheel in the air causing the car to understeer. Got a bit of a shock when i spun Grahams car on the drift track :shock: Think i went a whole competitive season last year in the woods with hardly a spin and two minutes in Grahams car and i was facing the wrong way.

Good to see the cars getting used and abused. :thanks:
