I'll try and convert it soon, but at the moment I'm having problems so I'll probably have to reload it from the original DVDr disc. So watch this space.

Awsome what a guy..........................

I love the fact he tryed to put up the fight against all those big manufactures

and also wouldent it have been geat if he got in a zcars mini ( but made for a rally) and thrashed that with the big boys bet it would have put up a big fight

Great stuff - the noise of that engine is lovely.

Top Gear's end credits tune was also much more tuneful too!

Such a shame they were out on a fan belt though.

Also I noticed that the track is the hill/alpine route at millbrook which I drive around quite a bit for work!! Ace!!
