Should be good then , I’m sure the 205 would have some weight advantage.

We had a good day at the track today. However, unfortunately, a BMW gave us a love tap in the right rear! I've been meaning to remove that rear hatch for years. I'll never find another panel like that.

Bugger! Racing or just a test / track day?

 

Excuse to get a fibreglass rear tailgate?

It was Race 1 of 3 for the day. Nevermind, it is indeed the start of the weight reduction program.

Does Chris on AF still make custom stickers? I wonder if he could make you a full size sticker to go in its place, because race car.

I have a rear hatch skin, which I'll paint and fit polycarbonate for the time being.

We spent some time at the track yesterday, dialing in some new softer rear springs. I'm pleased to say it was very successful and here's the fastest lap it's ever done (son John at the wheel).

Very quick! Car looks planted, plenty of grip there!

 

Circuit looks nice and fast flowing too.
