Looks like this thread is dying. frown Now that TVR's chief marketing executive has scoffed all the biscuits there's no one left to keep us all interested. And Elon has launched another electric car, this time with a range of 300 miles. Slowly and surely the electron brigade are taking over. Beginning to think the time has passed to launch a dinosaur this year, next year, whenever.....
Wait for the big photo shoot when the sliding door of the TVR factory is flung open..... This thread will go bananas!
Long live the thread....
Anyway, we also need to keep it open for Spag's glorious homecoming, the disco biscuit madman that he is!
If the nutty TVR pr department did get banned, he should get back in next volume which is around 500 pages or so.

Watching Sebring, and I have to report the TVR sticker on the Rebellion is..

A. Smaller
B. Seems to have "Racing" under the logo.

Does this have any meaning? Like the money is dwindling, and TVR Racing is now a separate entity to the building site in Wales?

Just guessing: TVR seems to focus on Le Mans, maybe that accounts for it. And as far as i know TVR Racing has always been a separate entity and Les also explained in an update that TVR Racing is not drawing resources from the development of the car (lots of other distractions apparently).

Development and actual sales of the car are mandatory if they want to go past the stickers-stage and actually want to race GT in Le Mans. So i wouldn't be concerned (at least not for that reason).

Thanks for that, but I'm not in the least bit concerned.

Looking forward to the smug 'told you' phase.

TVR Automotive, TVR Manufacturing and TVR Racing. All 3 are limited companies. Automotive and Manufacturing are linked together moneywise. TVR Racing is shown as a dormant company with 226 ordinary shares, one of which is owned by TVR Automotive. The other 12 shareholders are mainly the directors of the other two companies.
Their last 'dormant accounts' in May 2018 show they have cash at the bank in the grand sum of £1.

Which all means...what?

Why would a defunct company advertise on the side of Rebellion?

I'm obviously talking about Racing, before anyone jumps on the cheap joke.

Looks like a miserable Ford Focus.

Why does it even need an opening like that?

You’ll have to run it past the ones who see faces on the front of cars. Or just interrogate a 5 year old. hehe

Well I'm happily enjoying my 'track' T350 back in road spec for as long as it takes. Though new Exige test drives are tempting me ... lick
