Track day Cinquecento

So I have been championing my Bravo round charity track days this year and did pretty well.

From 1:43.1 in Mach with no modifications apart from tyres and brake pads.

A few modifications and tuning to make 1:31.4 in June...



...and a best time of 1:24.8 in September...



...October was a wash out and I had de-modified the car for Winter use so I had fun instead of clock watching.



I have serious doubts that my Bravo will pass the MOT in a couple of weeks time and the 16V Coupe turbo engine I bought for the Bravo decided it wanted to be a 14 1/2 valve engine instead...





...I think it's best I move on and start another project.

So I have a Cinquecento Sporting ready to go but do I...

1/ Keep it road legal and do an Idea 85, Panda 100 or t-jet 150 conversion?

...or...

2/ Track use only bike engine or bonkers conversion?

I have a bit of history with Cinquencento's and have one without a sunroof so whatever happens you might be interested.

Re: Track day Cinquecento

Does it make more sense to keep them road-legal & MOT'd in case you want to sell on or do a road event?

I've just had a Google around, there are certainly lots of aftermarket go-faster goodies out there, www.incinq.co.uk in particular
