Speedhunters have done a couple of reviews. There's a slightly mental all carbon Audi powered one in there somewhere.

Hey Simon, yes my car, it was a fun day out, but it's a dire article real dross, nice to see it in print though and I'm promised the photographs which allowing for the gazillion taken will be cool. I preferred your feature, it was Colin Goodwin wasn't it, he comes across as a proper car guy!

Sorry Steve Sutcliffe, I remembered it being one of the really good uk motor journo's it was a good piece. I'm still waiting for the photos to arrive but having some professionally taken was what made it for me. Thanks for comments ref the car, I did go as far as polishing it for the day! :D
