On the road I don't drive fast, but I don't slow down for corners
In competition I drive very fast, but not always on the track ...

Excellent! :D

I'm sorry he's still unwell but I'm sure we all wish him a very quick recovery. Many of us feed on his skill and enthusiasm to help with our rebuilds.

I`m sure Victor will not mind me passing on his message to me, he reports he has been in Hospital`s for Four months now and is currently in a rehab centre for the next few weeks.
He has not told me what the problem is, but he does say he is having a drastic life change to work around the health conditions.
We ALL wish him well.

Last message I got I posted on here, 13th October last year.
Not had any replies to my further emails.
I think someone one here in Aus contacted him and had a chat??.
I remember passing on his home address and email, I posted/sold him a few bits for the coupe. :lol:
