I think that was Jon's driving as much as the car Made full use of the ABS when he took me out in it near his house, then it popped a coolant hose

jon did that to me too in his van, driving stupidly quick in the lanes round his house. you really need to know the roads to drive like he was!

Jon drives like that regardless of where he is, he just seems to have a sixth sense which saved us a fair few times!

Very good thanks Bonnie, I haven't been on much lately, but I've just dropped the 205 down to Sandy for the winter, should come back a whole lot faster! I've just bought Atters 106 GTi, so that's my daily driver, and the 205 is a weekend fun/track car now.

Hopefully I'll catch you sometime, I'm going to be heading to Cornwall quite regularly to check progress, so if there's a meet, count me in.

How are you? I hear your new black rallye is pretty mint!

I haven't taken any pics of it yet, but here's some neil took a while back:











I'm very happy with, not quite as much of a go kart at the 205, but much nicer to get into on a cold winter's morning, and I don't felt guilty about driving it on wet salty roads
