    Johnnytempest's 850.

    Just in case anyone hasn't seen this car, have a look in the garage, its looking excellent and johnnytempest you should start a thread of what you are doing, its really looking good now and sounds like you'll be having some fun in it and maybe there are a few people unaware of what you are doing.

    Just been on the Brands site and only 13 for raceday. Might try and get to this as there looks to be some heavy weights racing.

    cheers guys
    I wasn't sure it would go down very well as its not a perfect btcc rep.
    I have to follow certain regs in the race series,so although from a distance its might look it,close up,quite different.
    I still have a long way to go to get anywhere near the sharp end, I'm down by about 120BHP for a start and with the cut out problem I have, lots to do.

    Be great to see some support at the races, I have ordered a couple of VPCUK for the car too, maybe get some new interest?? lol.

    I have loads of pictures of different stages of build, so if people want to see it, I'll see if I can upload them with some sort of descriptions.

    And thanks to this forum, a great place to talk anything Volvo.

    thanks to P Fandango and Al115 for their recent help too.

    You could get a fair few volunteers with knowledge for a crew from here
    By the way is it an open paddock at Brands for your race day as it is usually really good to see the cars close up, and there is a burger bar close by lol

    Doesn't have to be a perfect replica mate, your doing a good job with it, looks like its being done well.

    Will there be any races nearer the midlands, brands is is a long way from leicester. If a few of us went, it may be worth it.

    Yea i could have the best pit crew going!! shame there are no pitstops. lol
    I have been following this race series around for 2 years now and the only time I have needed to buy a pass was when they supported the DTM.
    So yes,open paddock
    and yes burger van!

    I'm not 100% in for the Brands race just yet, so please dont book anything, just incase. i'll keep you up to date.

    I would think Donnington would be closest to Leicester.
    The next meeting is there, but I unfortunatly,wont be racing.

    I'll definatly go to any in the midlands and don't mind going a bit further, just brands is on the wrong side of london, makes it so much longer to get there.
