Wicked little weapon. Love that you flew down and drove it back to Scotland. Get it on track!

I love your Marvel prints in the garage by the way. I have a few myself (as well as DC)

your caterham is lovely well done

i have a westfield which I chopped in my e46 m3 for. I bought a mondeo as the family grew to four.

Best thing I ever done. Currently at 535 kg 178bhp. running costs are so cheap
buttons to insure. I can buy 4 tyres for the cost of 2 on the m3 and its so light you punt round all day on track with hardly any wear.


if you have a space in the garage give it a go.

Those 620S on track redefine what is fast, if you arent used to driving around in an F1 car then the way they sail past others is on another level. Stupid quick.

Superb buy there.
Cheers!

Had to google MNR with Hayabusa engine

That looks LOL fast!

Thanks

It's funny, going from the Caterham to the M3 has the same initial 'like driving a bus' feeling as going from the M3 to our Discovery, if that makes any sense

Thanks - driving it back was a big part of the whole buying process to me - loved every second of it and amazingly the weather was perfect, even after I crossed the border!

I've been meaning to get those prints up on my son's bedroom wall for ages - must spend less time driving...

...would love to get it on track - running in service is booked for next week, so maybe after a little more familiarisation I'll head over to Knockhill. This video always makes me laugh: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RItI58PMgPk

Thanks - yes it sort of surprised me just how low the relative running costs are but as you say, they're just so damn light as to not eat consumables in the same way as say, an M3 would. Having diddy little 13" wheels/tyres also helps!

Cheers! Yes the whole mount / dismount thing takes a bit of practice and contortion! I took my 75 y/o dad out in it yesterday and getting in and out was probably the worst aspect for him, after my err, driving...

Definitely not as 'LOL' fast as yours mate I can assure you! They are fully nuts those 620S'. I was fully giggling like a schoolgirl on my passenger ride round Croft, a smile that is impossible to wipe off.
