Some of you may have noticed that I wasn't in the R53 becausereasons but I did get the keys to the GP2 instead. We had a great night by the lake.

A couple of the classics View attachment 101117
Both of these are modded btw, the orange one a bit more obviously with the turbo hanging through the grill, feeding a Suzuki 1.3 twin cam... The van has a Mini 1000 engine put together with "leftover parts" from a historic rally car project, according to the owner. Nothing crazy, just halving the 0 to 100km/h time from the original 24.9 seconds 馃槃

JKo, I think Purtsi told us he was rocking 170hp ... that must be like driving a can of wasps.

The van is definitely a sleeper, as the owner is historic rally champion for I don't know how many years in a row.

It was a good time on the track. Maybe not so many laps done before it started raining but still had fun. AD08's were challenging with loads of understeer.
Here's a pic of tcbw checking the progress on the repairs of JKo's Mini. Good that after some team effort it was back from the dead.
