Some of you old timers may remember the video series that I posted covering my 2014 European Road Trip while owning my previous RX-8. In 2016 we did a follow up trip. I took the FD. After finally collating everyone’s footage, I set about creating something more ambitious. This project got a little out of hand but it's finally done.

Here’s a bunch of short videos of 7 blokes driving sports cars across stunning European landscapes. Enjoy. :D

Bit of on board rallycross action. I'm 2 seconds a lap off the leaders, but have not yet installed the 1.5 way KAAZ diff, removed the fuel tank and installed a small one, and I'm still running completely standard RX8 suspension I bought from a scrapyard. I also plan on getting the full Bridgeport, lightened & balanced engine magic from Rotary Revs over the winter.

All this added up, I'm pretty confident I can mix it with the big boys when shes done :D

You made it into the A Final and it's great to see someone doing something different with an 8.

Looks like you need your own Project thread viewforum.php?f=104
