The car has been very competitive in modified specialist production and has even qualified for a midland top 12 runoff. The car could also run in roadgoing specialist production with a few alterations.

I may consider selling the engine, ancillaries & paddleshift seperately.

I also have a Brian James minno max that has a GT cover which would be available to a potential buyer.
