Car/driver spec sheet

Post by CNHSS1 » Wed Oct 17, 2007 4:25 pm

this is the idea suggested by Neil Stevenson in another thread.

what about a standardised set of Qs about each driver/car pairing?
every competitor could then complete it along with say 2 or 3 pics of their car?
be good to get some of the 'famous' drivers of yesteryear to do them too (Bev Fawkes, Robin Rew, Paul Gill, Les Trafford etc etc) as some of us guys never competed against them and those that have taken temporary sabbaticals or compete in the rallying scene also.

please add your suggestions:-

Once all the info is available, it may be better to put it on the (very out of date) competition pages? It was kind of one of the things I thought about, but never have done...

My car photographs better than it drives, so I vote we have pics, too.
