Recognise your hard top? Bumped into (not literally) the guy I sold it to at Curborough yesterday.

His bog standard MX5 1.6 (suspension mods only) was lapping virtually as fast (3 secs) as a new S3.





And here's what happens to an M6 when you lose traction, gain traction then fire it through a hedgerow

Isn't it?!     Curborough sprint circuit is a little tight and small for the M6, I suspect.

Colin, wish I'd known you were going, I would have popped over.  I had some good days at Curborough with the MX5OC. I presume it was a fun day, once the ice had melted from the track?

I didn't get there until 11 to allow time for it to defrost but early arrivals said it was dry anyway.

I'll drop you a link to the curborough group on FB if I can.

Did you get the invite? I think it had to be approved by a mod first.[/b]
