    As for the meet on sun 25th, the zombie golf has now gone and hopefully its replacement will be with me by then, but dont get too excited it a bit of a step down in power.

    What formula is that in dude? One of dad's mates used to race a hot-rod years ago and we'd go all over the place but Buxton was always good for a laugh.
    Have always wanted to try my hand at the non-contact formulas, dad was always too tight to get me into it!

    i do rooki rods. ive got a saxo, non contact. rules are pretty basic and modifications are strict.
    got to the buxtonraceway website click formulas and rookirod (my car is used to advertise this bit)

    money wise mine has cost me about £1800 in 2 half years inclusing the car itself. thats tyres, 2 head gaskets all new suspension bushes driveshafts gearbox clutch rear beam etc etc. the complete car has been overhauled from start to finish but as and when moiney allowed each time making things more reliable.
    Ive just brought one for the mrs to get into it and paid £500 less a harness she has swapped the front wings and door and prepped it for paint ive sprayed it (not too wlel i might add) and she will learn to race in it. with me using it to race at stoke.

    theres one for sale on ebay type in rookierod its a black and orange paxo its my mates ben he lives in blurton, sound guy and very good car.
    he will let it go for £800 less harness.
    costs me a quid to race 12 quid for the mrs to come watch and 10 quid in petrol with about 20 quid in diesel for the l200 to tow it. tyres are 32 quid each and a set lasts most of the season. thats about it.

    NP Jon, sorry to hijack the thread.

    Just found the rookirod for sale on fleebay, looks pretty smart really. Red top too so a decently sorted motor by the looks. Found a mk2 Fiesta as well sitting at £250.

    Price is really good and something i'd love to get into but can see the mrs doing one if I did. May pop up Buxton for a watch, been donkey's since I last went to a short oval meeting
