So after being on a number of track days, I have made the executive decision to get me a track car. Here he is!!
We got invited to Lydden, Le Mans and Spa in 2017 and for 2018 we will be having our own motor to throw about these iconic tracks.
These little beasts are at a great price at the moment and will only go up in value over the next few years. The 2.0 16 valve engine will take you from 0-60mph in just 7 seconds, which is awesome for such cheap car. When we went to Le Mans and Spa we noticed a fair few Renault Sports like the 172, 182, 197 and some special Megane’s. These cars were keeping up with the likes of BMW, Porsche and others, probably coz they are so small and amazing handling going into corners. In the wet in Spa these things were unstoppable.
So with all that in mind it was easy to choose a Clio for the MA project. It’s been de fluffed from when we bought it with the 17” wheels that were on it, also the black rear lights have been removed aswell. This car also got picked up with some real bright blue interior lights in boot, footwells and underneath the car, which got pulled out very, very quick.
So the plan is to get track ready with some bucket seats & roll cage with some massive brakes thrown in for good measure. I’m sure there will be a lot more done on the way aswell.
So keep your eyes peeled for the ongoing work that will be done and we will see you soon at the tracks!!
