Matts car is a long way from home... Dominican Republic.
( £80K, & plenty of spares included...bargain).

In the right hands, it would probably give the Infiniti a run for its money.

They've also got Matt Neal's 2011 championship winning Honda Civic Type R on there for sale. The advert says it's normally aspirated but I thought the Civics were turbo charged that year? I'm sure I remember Plato complaining about them being like rocket ships on the straights?

It was the LPG powered Fords that had turbos (and flexible windscreens) back then, I think.

Rumour Mill;
My big brother has heard that Ricky Collard is emigrating to Australia... seems that he may be walking away from Motorsport entirely. yikes

Yes it was on Autosport a couple of weeks ago, he has family over there. Link to the article:

Also interestingto hear that BTC racing might move away from the Civic and look to use a marque not currently in the series but doesn't say which ones. They want more control over the engine used and want to bring it in house.

I hope there is more to add than Legends. I've never been into them for some reason.
