It still looked to be a very bleak 2009 season, even as far as till the first event. Then people like Plato, Jackson, and Thompson, even new talant like Nash, showed up and made the season pure fireworks.

Don't forget how often Matt Neal's in your general vacinity...

Someone on the official forum said that they are being advertised in this weeks Autosport.

I seem to remember them being up for sale this time last year too, although I could very well be imagining that - did they only ever build 3 cars? I had the impression there might be 5 or so

If they're the original shells, they'll be pretty tired after three years on the trot... one of which was as the berth of Captain Crash himself.

3 cars advertised in this week's Autosport as for sale or lease. Same as Dynamics do every year.

Usual case of someone making 2 + 2 = 5

Actually thinking about it, one was pretty much destroyed in the huge crash at Brands a couple of years ago - to the point where the rollcage had cracked. Dunno if they ever bothered to repair it or just wrote it off...

Dynamics have built one new Civic over the winter period.

So I can't see them dropping the car yet..

From the outside, it looks a horrible car to drive. Very twitchy looking. James Thompson worked wonders to drag that car into positions it didn't belong in.
