Great post Neil. :good:

I am ashamed to admit that the thought of taking something like that to the limit now scares the pants off me.  :swoon:

I guess I am just getting old, twenty years ago I would have wanted to try it out.  :(

How soon will you be converting yours, Neil? ;)

I imagine that upgrade would be outside my budget cos :( . I think there's going to be some footage of my car going round Brands Hatch online soon. I'll put a link up when it comes online.

That is going to be a seriously quick car.  I hope they let the Stig loose in it.

It was to do with a magazine test Cos, they was testing my 7 up against the brand new Duratec 7. Was a really good day. They've already done the front cover, it's on the bottom left here http://www.trcmagazine.com/home.html

That's great Neil.  It looks like there are three of them in the picture.  What was the other one?  How did yours do against the new 7?

Thanks Scotty, The other car is a R500. My car and the brand new one are both R300's with different engines.
The two R300's did feel quite different. My one has got a full screen and leather seats, which I spec'd when I bought it. The new car has got an aeroscreen, tillet seats and a lowered floor so it felt like a bit more of a racer than mine.

The two engines are similar in performance. The Ford engine's pretty strong with loads of torque. The K-Series engine's a bit more of a screamer and likes to be revved.

I did write a little piece to put in the magazine, I'll put it up once they've edited it etc :D

Here's a picture of me on the right, with Mark the R500 owner :D
