Lovely!!!! What engine does this car have? 3.2? Is that Kev's old GTV6 at the back?

BTW, I just came back from a track day and I broke a rear wheel stud Thank God, I didn't drive it to the track as I put it on my race car trailer. So at least I wasn't going to be stranded.

I think it's not a bad idea if you can, to press in new ARP studs. 30 year old studs, and all the berms I've gone over, airborne the car on some of those over-the-hill sections...

Very nice . Good to see your pace through the table top next to Adrian's lightweight supefast alfetta gt (2.0) . You must be pretty happy with overall performance on the car considering its the only car in the field that gets driven home and still has most of its interior in amongst all those purpose built race cars . Buts its sure fun starting at the back of the field watching you cut through .
Question now is will you enter the 4C in Trofeo when it arrives :D

Hi All

Qualifying today for our race.... I managed to fit an external Mic next to exhaust and I think it sounds awesome...Unfortunately I will NOT be posting race video, as I spun on a fast corner on Oil or water ...

Giuseppe you can feel better when you see what Formato did . Well this was pretty embarrassing and sad day for Gary in front of everyone on cold tyres . I would love to know where he could have saved this or where did he go so wrong .
Hope this link goes to Formato crashes GTC .
