    i love those uk hand made cars... i saw year ago a tv show top gear where they were racing one similar and it was pure joy!! :D:D:D what kind of engine you used? how much $$$ you spended?

    is it a caterham?

    - when i was 5 year old my dad build a "formula bee" (an small car in a formula style made with only mexican parts, the motor was the motor of a vw beattle... i can still say that for that single thing my dad still is my hero... :D (if you have kids... take them to the race track! :D)

    best regards from mexico

    Looks good:thumbs we have quite a few of those in Australia. Use to love my track days, just did not fit my budget when I retired. Still have my car, which is only used now and again on the road. Likely telling you what you already know, but Don't forget to change the oil and add/bleed some high temp brake fluid before hitting the track.

    Thanks all,

    the car is called a Sylva Striker and is basically a copy of a Caterham 7, although a bit smaller and probably the most different looking 7....

    It’s got a Ford 2.0 blacktop zetec engine, fairly standard so probably around 140hp but only weighs 500kg!!

    going on another track day next month with a few friends, I love racing sims but not as much as I love actually driving!!!
