Re: dedicated fiatforum track car

Seriously though, the track car thing is a nice idea, but will never happen, say it costs £2K to fully race prep (made up cost), 2nd time out Jimmy Lead Foot trashes it into a wall.... erm... no. Or shreds tyres going sideways into gravel trap like my mate did last time he was out, then the melted tyre shreds appear all over the body... lovely.

Re: dedicated fiatforum track car

I do not think there would be any chance of the forum doing this. If individuals wanted to do it on a syndicate basis, then that's another matter, but beware of the costs. If it's used for trackdays it'll presumably have to be kept road legal (you'r not going to keep it at one track), and the cost of fuel, tyres, brakes etc will be far higher than for road use.
Have a look at www.nurburgring.org.uk/c-car/index.html to see how some people run a syndicate car, especially down the bottom for the costs.
(If that page doesn't work, the Google cache page will work.

Re: dedicated fiatforum track car

How about a ff day track meet
and let my womanly driving show you all up
which one is the accelerator (clutch all the way)

And perhaps someone will take pity and let us trash there car
Dad might lend works Benz sprinter or i could steal an old rover if someone can hot wire or we could just strap someone to a pole and use there car

Re: dedicated fiatforum track car

track day is in the pipe line, we want to get a bigger one too where we have the whole place just for fiats, but thats going to take at least a year to sort out, unless some one donates £7k soon

Re: dedicated fiatforum track car

I know it would probably never happen, unless there's a member who hasn't checked their lottery ticket and wants to pay for everything?
