Hmm! Dirt track racing that turns in more than one direction. I'm not sure it will catch on in the US.

Interesting note on the bonnet.

Michael,this guy is so fast no one has seen him in their mirrors.Not much for advertising though! Maybe those Lucas mirrors are so much more advanced than ours they don't read backwards?

It's certainly an awesome car. I have also been using a classic car and never faced a problem while driving it. I came to know about the history of my car by going through this post http://www.performanceautocarrier.com/Articles/jaguar.aspx . My car comes in a retro collection of cars. Do you agree with me?

I ventured into the rally scene many years back. I just dug this old rally car out of my barn and listed it on Ebay. This car was campaigned early thru mid 1980's across America and one event in Canada. I am a newby here, but not out there.

I remember driver meetings where they discussed things like off camber approaches to bridges and the sort... some of the best questions ever asked were at driver meetings, like: "Mike Halley " How much does the bridge cost? Now THAT is a real rally driver there!

Rally people are fun people (crazy fun). I got excited seeing a rally forum and had to jump in. Some here may recognize the car. Might even still recognize me??? Either way, I shared the photo out of excitement about SCCA Pro Rally.

It seemed to be a dying sport with only one major event last year and I would like to see it survive. I am glad there are others who have "rally" in mind. There is no better way to blow a lot of your hard earned money!

And have the time of your life doing it. Rallycross is certainly the way to go today! Thank you for allowing my intrusion.

Just for kicks and grins... this is the direction I am going today. I wonder if I am onto something, or lost it all?

I am just starting 2 of these projects on early model FJ40 chassis with V8 chevy engines. I have rounded up everything to complete these projects except the ability to get out of this chair.

I was hesitant to post what I am doing with the Spitfire today. Please don't find offense. I love both of my Spitfires!
