    Yes please for the Team Dynamics one!!!! Would love to hear it!!

    Only thing, and it's a really minor personal thing, but it needs smaller spacers on the rear. Can't stand it when it looks like wheels sit slightly proud of the bodywork. Not saying the standard car doesn't need a little push out but this is too much for me.

    in that TD version, is it a trick of the light or is the roof black in the front/side image but then white in the rear shot? also LHD on a UK plate - hmmm, wonders if this is the white Ring Car? doing some of the rumoured lightweight edition testing?

    Trick of the light in the rear shot i think. Good call on it being the ring car, however.

    oh my that's Nice. Are we sure these were commissioned? Surely it's going to encourage people to modding and warranty rejections? I know people do but for Honda to be involved...hmmm

    I am not sure what exhaust that one is, their own I guess - lovely looking though

    "Most notably, it has modified the ECU (Superchips), the induction system (ITG), intercooler (PWR, sports cat (Dream) and exhaust (Scorpion), yielding a claimed 25 per cent improvement in performance. That puts peak power at 400hp (or possibly 405hp if its reporting bhp) and 369lb ft of torque - 74lb ft more than standard."

    Hmm..the scorpion is pretty cheap...

    It was both. I used to go over with a classic mini club and they allowed new minis as well. The club hired the ring for an hour from 8 to 9 am. My fastest lap was during one of these sessions but I started on the main straight level with normal entrance as we had lined up for photos. I was on the front row, but had no cone chicane to negotiate as I was already on the circuit. I think that helped. The car had the 1.6 Peugeot turbo engine and was up from factory 211bhp to 267bhp. I couldn’t get anywhere near that time once the track was open to the public.

    Iirc the excess on the GT3RS I hired was 35,000€, focused my mind for sure, Exige was 15,000€. I had a love affair over that circuit and my dream was to race the 24 hour how ever I couldn't spend the time or have enough cash in the end In my hay days I was going monthly, must have driven over 500 laps over the years, but haven't been back for years.

    TF is simply not worth the risk in my opinion, the lack of insurance and ambiguity over lack of third party cover, cost of barrier and track closure costs means a simple mistake could bankrupt you, perhaps I'm a bit wiser now.
