Good spotting Thomas. I hadn't noticed that the mirror control was not switchable. Does anyone know what UK S2 spec was regarding door mirrors?

Also, the presenter in the video states that the car is .... 'believed to be one of only two registered remaining'.... :roll: Say what???

Where do they get their information from?

And here it is again! I was at Brooklands when it won the little trophy. (back in 2013 IIRC).

The trophy winner that year was green. The guy had only recently purchased it and was talking about selling it already on the day!

This car was racing at Donington last weekend. I can't recall seeing it before? Anyone know anything about it?

This one is new to me. Prices are getting crazier by the day.

That's Tony Ellis' special saloons and modsports car. I really want to get to a meeting to see it in action! I believe the engine is by WGT.

Looks like the next round is Oulton Park 20th, I'd like to go and watch if I'm not busy.
