I bought this car in January 2020 and spent nearly a year and a small fortune getting it ‘ready to race’. We made it to Great Tarmac Rally in December 2020 and what a relief to finish the event with no problems.
2021 a melted wire kept us from Mt Baw Baw.
Recently a best of 1:07.6 at Wakefield then a spark plug failure resulted in a engine rebuild.
Now financial reality has hit and I have to get some of my money back.
It owes me much more than the asking price of $130k but any serious offer will be considered. Testing available at Wakefield Park with an appropriate deposit.
