Baronbennyt owns a blue Mercedes AMG GTR PRO and the photo shows it in the pitlane (Goodwood?). Seems perfectly valid to me bowtie

At Castle Combe. The AMG was a lot of fun but felt a little big for the Wiltshire circuit. It’s natural habitat is Silverstone, Goodwood, Spa, Nurburgring etc.

New track car that I'm fitting some obligatory mods to. It's gonna be a beast hehe



Tein Springs, grooved discs and some Mintex pads so far, already handles and stops way better than it did. Can't imagine I'll be overtaking many on the straights so corners will be where this thing thrives. Still, slowest track car I've owned.
That’s brilliant and the whole point of this, doesn’t matter what you have, what your top speed is, how much it costs, as long as you enjoy it that’s all that matters

There’s a reason people still buy good handling, lower powered cars like the panda, abarth, 106 rallye and it’s engagement

Do you drive it on the road or is it track-only? smile

She's been away for an upgrade and now has a 270bhp 2 litre duratec in it.

You were indeed - I was hoping no one on here was in attendance to witness me mincing about Donington, getting to grips with the car on my first wet trackday laugh I think you overtook me out the back of the circuit toward the end of the evening when we were all queued up behind the blue clio 17/82 who wouldn't indicate or let anyone past.... rolleyes

You were going well - is that a Meglio? Sounded like it was from the pit-wall...

Last trackday at Goodwood...



Managed to keep a 991.2 GT3 RS at bay... not bad for a '65 tank on crossply tyres wink

I do remember passing you, I was being polite biggrin
It was my first wet day in the car and found it really fun, I think the big(ger) power RWD stuff was struggling with grip so it was fun playing the underdog with a well set up FWD hatch. No shame in that, the goal is to have fun and get home in one piece.

Not Meglio, standard N/A F4R engine. Just lots of chassis mods.

Good to see a few RX8s on here, looking for one for my son and me..nice blend of rwd, good balance and acceptable power.

I saw one of these at a track day recently a light blue one and honestly I couldn't believe how quick it was on the straights. It wasn't slow on the corners either.

Around 500hp and a broad torque band have their advantages. There's no replacement for displacement cloud9
