Had a great run on this event at the weekend.. Won my class by almost 6 minutes and finished 23rd overall (Modifieds) beating all the 16v cars in the same engine bracket... :proud:

Enjoy the ride

Well done, some nice in car footage. It's always a great weekend when you win and more importantly, bring it home in one piece. :proud:

Very well driven - well done, a fine result.

 

That takes me back to the old Circuit of Ireland Rally which I did several times, once in a Porsche 911 and the other times in an Escort. The key is smooth driving and that is what was shown on this video.

 

Can we have an external photo of the car and details of the specification please?

I'm sure the OP won't mind me posting this video. Same driver really committed with plenty of flat in top and so smooth with it. https://youtu.be/ifns9rGoTfY

i would have expected on the flat stuff near the finish before the 3 bail, i thought the car would be moving about loads more than that! Is it on rubbers or springs?
