would be intresting to get a grid of imps , minis , nsu fiat abarth type cars together !


that way most people would be in with a reasonable chance of a win ?

with the way it is with the big block v8's in the HSCC we will only ever see class wins.

Ron "Impspeed" may have the car down at this years national but if it dose get that far it prob will be engine-less!!

it is in the final stages and when ron is done with it she has to go to transimp for the engine fit and fettle!!

will have to see how it goes. :?
