I'm now actively looking for another MX-5 to turn into the reincarnation of the RacingFIVE. Ideally, I want a Mk1 1.8 with a torsen diff but I'll consider any 1.8 (Mk1 or Mk2), pre-96 1.6 and MOT fails or non-runners. Budget is tight - no more than £500.. I might travel a fair distance for the right deal.
If you know of anything, leave me a message.

So, this leaves me racing car-less at the moment and thinking what I should do. Budget is very tight but I really need something reliable that will need the minimum of tinkering in between events. And since my garage is now full of an old Merc, it's going to have to sit outside all year round.
Maybe, just maybe, I'll get another MX-5 and join what I hear is going to be a fairly big class of MX-5s on the Scottish Hills next year........

I'm nearly ready for my longest trip of the year down to Three Sisters circuit near Wigan in Lancashire for round 4 of the Brockbanks Solicitors Cross Border Speed Championship on Sunday. I have put the stock ECU back on, cleaned up the car and finally got round to re-fitting the cold air induction kit.
It's a long way and the weather forecast is grim but I'm looking forward to the banter and competition after over a month out. I'm hoping to pick up some more valuable championship points as I'm currently leading Class R1 and incredibly, I appear to be sitting 3rd overall after 3 events.
Three Sisters is a technical little kart circuit and I'm hoping my previous experience there will give me the edge over my championship competition. Hopefully my new tyres might help too.
