Looks really good Simon. I see a lot of carbon fibre, how much weight has come off the car?

Aiming to be competing again in 2015
Still a lot to do and finance
New wheels and tyres and suspension
Car runs and it's just purely money that is
Controlling the time scale
It should be back on the road at the end of next
Year as for the weight I would like to have lost at least 50 kg
Out of it but as long as it is not heavier at 700kg
I have had to go strength first and worry about weight second
Do not want a breakage again

When you return to competing, are you staying in Road-Going, or are you moving up to Modified Specialist/Sports Libre? :D

Staying in road going
Will still be 100% road legal as will still do school
Run in it when the weather is good

Well I have driven the car in 2013
It may have been only up and down my road
And is a long way off bring finished but I have driven it

Car is now waiting for shocks and springs
( being made by nitron )
And wheels from image then
Andy Silman has to set the geometry and she will be ready
For Abingdon

And the union flag is back but a little more subtle

What's the bike? It's not an LE or a Dragonfly, so some sort of Be Em, I presume. Looks like an off road exhaust route, but a road front tyre... Tell all...

Suzuki gt550 two stroke once I have finished the car
I have to restore the bike for a friend
He also had the gt750 but sold that
And a load of bikes but they are in beulie
Bike had sat in his shed for fifteen years
Bit of fresh fuel and a jump pack and it fired straight
Up couldn't believe it

Ah yes, I see now. That's the clutch case sticking out the side, not a cylinder head. So much for my observational skills... :roll:
