    Hi Trevsked,

    Have loved my time in the G40, couldn't think of a better car to start racing in. Safe, fast enough to really learn in but not so much you'll have something bitten off! Great handling car and toe to toe a better car than a Caterham but not as fast as a 620R, only issue may be build quality I've had silly stuff like fuses go in the assembily area, the door locks didn't work from factory and to be fair the fuel gauge has finally begun to work!

    Fun little car though despite the um character...

    Hi Ben! I remember coming to watch you in the wet at Brands last year in the Ginetta - great stuff. Historics sound like a riot. Welcome, plenty of ex-racers on here to chew the fat with .

    Thanks for all the welcomes guys. And @burnsey210 I do remember that day when it was bucketing down, which I believe was my excuse for starting quali in the gravel at clearways...

    I will attach photos of the Mini as soon as I figure out how that works...

    hey Ben, welcome to S9,

    Good luck with motorsport engineering... I am in Engineering for Motorsport (F1, LMP2, WRC, BTC and F-E), so maybe there is something I can help with.

    Cheers

    Hi SpaRkzz,

    Thankyou for the welcome. I'm very excited to start in the industry and my formal education in motorsport, I'd appreciate any help I can get to get my foot in the door so it'd be great to have a chat about what you do!
