I'm actually not a fan of the colour of my car if I'm honest, it just doesnt pop enough for me.

Some people could call it Champagne Gold instead of Diamond Grey :(

I assume there'll be drone footage again this year Dave? Really enjoyed it from last year although hopefully the footage ( and the video) might be a tad longer?

What would be really good would be if the guy doing the video got lots of interviews from the owners. It's really interesting to get owners opinions on everything from maintenance regimes and habits to views on the engine and any other views/opinions they may have on all things rotary.Maybe your good self might say a few words? ;)

Leaving them plain. I don't care what's on the outside of the housings when you know what's on the insides ;)

They're some awesome pics, mate!

Might half inch them for the 'gram if that's OK?

Lowering to that level is about style, while compromising performance.

Cars lowered that radially can really suffer on track, as they loose grip and can lift an inside wheel before trying to spear off into the boonies.
