I was watching George clarkes amazing spaces on tv and a small part of the show was about a chap turning a reliant robin in to a camping type trailer and for the price was a quirky way of getting out and about and getting your head down....if you were on the small stature lol but my post is about a clip shown the c4 show of a reliant robin going around a track poss reliant test track when an aggressive and smart looking GTC possibly? Came flying around the outside of it and gone in seconds :D wondered if anyone else saw and could confirm my sighting. Sorry no link to it but will be on catch up tv for anyone interested.

All the best

I reckon that’s the MIRA banked circuit? Definitely a GTC - with the roof down :D

More room in a GTC :lol: If Mr Wells is watching he knows :lol:
Done it lots of times, slept in the car I mean :roll: just take out the boot dividing board and put it across the gap with the seats fully forward and folded.
