Charles Armitage and his Ex GW Sabre could well be up for sale, if the right price was agreed, but sadly more than i've got or want to spend, and to be honest too close in essence to the car I'm building, no point having two I guess. Good news is Charles said the cars on the button and ready to compete with, so hopefully we may see him out in it again this season :D

I have agreed a purchase of a car, which should be available in a couple of months time, which gives me more time to sort more of my toys out and rationalise the fleet, clear the decks etc.

Really aiming for Loton in July :-) if not before :D

Nice one !

Was it built in Tamworth ?

Why do you say that Bob?? :wink: :lol:

I thought Raz never put the car back together?? I can think of a seriously quick blue car which has big brakes and a cage already??
