Well had a chat with Nigel and OMG, looks like after years of posts and will it, won't it. Its happening.

He has confided me in what he's ordered and sadly despite me finding him a blue Kia Stinger in the UK. (possibly a cancelled order), it's not going to be a Stinger. .

Having said that what he and his parents have decided on, will satisfy both their needs and the new car. Well it has potential. So whilst not the Stinger we were rooting for, at least it looks like a worthy choice and more than that, what car, what colour, what spec, prices etc etc talk will be a thing of the past. Though I'm sure he will end up telling us what mods are planned.

There are only a few track circuits that except EV's mixing with ICE vehicles Dave :thumleft:

Mallory Park,
Castle Combe
Thruxton
Knockhill
Anglesey

The only MSV track I can use is Donington Park :P , the other MSV tracks don't allow the mixture on the day due to not having the Fire Equipment onsite :!:
