Hillclimbing Imp at Race Retro

Post by SuperSport » Wed Apr 24, 2013 11:44 am

Has anyone out there got any up-close & personal photos of the exhaust box arrangement on the hillclimbing imp please ?

I found it an interesting take on the issue of protecting the exhaust, but I got sidetracked and didnt get to take any photos.

Can anyone help ?

Thanks

Ian

Ian

Was this Imp on our stand or another. We had 2 race cars, 2 rally cars and a PCT car so I'm slightly confused?

Cheers - Simon
