If you have paid for oulton and can transfer it I may take it off you if you want .
Your also more than welcome to have some passenger rides as well.😁
I'm sure it will be possible. I'll PM you in a bit with my payment details (once I've got two coughing children to bed....)

Ah. 6'4". Is it mounted lower than a stock seat? As long as i can get the head room, i can probably be more flexible with the leg position. On stock seats i normally have to recline a fair bit with a helmet, but then bring the chair forward compared to my road position just so i'm not too far away from the steering wheel.

I have only shared a car with someone once previously. It was at the Nurburgring in 2014 and i shared a LHD track prepped Suzuki Swift with a friend. Nice damp day. He put it in the barrier on his third lap, in what he described as the longest slowest understeering event. Not that that sets any precedent of course... :lol:
