Re: New GTV owner questions

Long gone (sadly missed) built for Hill climbs & Sprints, did it all myself; engine, re-build gearbox, welded up from a seriously rusted wreck and painted in Ford colours (RS 200 yellow Ford Royal Blue)

Did a few events but discovered a few important things;

One - I’m not as fast a driver as I thought, two - no matter how much you spend someone (in your class) has spent 10 times more! Three - Entry fees are expensive without any sponsorship.

Ended up doing track days (quite successfully) in damp/wet or low grip could keep up with most things, dry on the straights the turbo boys just blew past.

Gave up….sold it (broke it for bits) and bought the Renault 5 much faster but would never out handle a well sorted Mini
