Head now completely refreshed with new valves, gaskets etc – zero use since. Additionally, a new engine mount was fitted as was new plugs and oil. Gearbox was rebuilt in 2005, with ½ day testing since – same for clutch, drive shafts and CV joints. One race, ½ day testing and 2 track days since engine build. Subsequently it has had a full nut and bolt check and is ready to race – needs nothing. Eligible for a number of series and championships to incl. British GT (Cup Class), AMOC Mid Engined Sportscar Series (Motorsport Class), 750MC, Britcar etc. An exceptionally competitive car in the right hands and a joy to drive. A very, very reluctant sale due to change of series, and a new business opportunity. Can arrange international shipment for overseas customers.
