jellison has a lot of promise if they can keep it on the circuit!

Be great if it came off - but thing they will struggle to get grids or real or even replica's of the original crazy cars.

Steve Roberts's old car? Be nice to see it out-and-about again. Have you been in touch with Steve about it?

My first concerns would be:

Are there enough cars out there to make it worth it and are they in a condition to race as I'm guessing that most would need modern safety upgrades at least.

Secondly, is another race series really needed?

Two excellent questions SD! They would certainly require upgrading and given the nature of the beasts the structural integrity, level of prep and safety enhancements would require close policing. The simple answer to the second question is 'no' .... but some of us would sure as hell like to see these cars out again.

I think a couple of the Davrian Modsport cars have raced in the SR&GT series in the last couple of years.

Might be one place to race some of these cars again, at least in the UK at least!
