Ok well after much searching I decided on a VW Lupo and I found one up in Northwich, Chesire.
So I hired a trailer, thanks to A Class Motorhomes in Swindon who have some impressive bits of kit down there….and with a bit of help towing it (don’t ask lol) we got it back to Bristol!! Only a 10 hour round trip….
So more about the car its a 2000 VW Lupo Sport 1.4 16v with a few additions, namely: Raceland Manifold, Decat, Powertech Induction Kit , GTI leads, Gearbox from an S , Weitec HiCon GT Coilovers.
Work on it shall start very shortly and I think the first thing on the list to get done is to strip it down and then onto the roll cage.
Today I went upto Cheltenham and bought myself my towing wagon. It’s already got a tow bar fitted and plenty of torque for towing.
I should hopefully be picking it up Wednesday!
Just thought I’d say welcome to David Rose Racing.
My names David Rose, I’m 23 and from Bristol. I’ve been a marshall at Castle Combe for a year now and I’ve always been a motorsport enthusiast. So I’ve decided its about time I took one of the things I love to follow and try to compete myself.
So the aim of this blog is to follow my progress through building a race car for the Castle Combe Saloon Championship Class D and also my racing hopefully if we ever get there!
