    Yeah that's very true! They're great to look at!
    It'd be odd if you went out and saw a load in a random car park haha! Brilliant though!

    Hmm, I love a quad rotor tbh but hey we all have our preferences!

    Yeah so am I!
    That was a lucky cameraman! But he kept filming though! Fearless!
    TOCA have now introduced race bans for poor driving after the events of Snetterton!
    Was quite disappointed tbh, got two shortened races with massive delays in them!
    Most random is when you see the odd one on display in a shopping centre for advertising.

    Very lucky cameraman. Bet that camera is moved next year.
    I had it recorded due to work so just fast forwarded through the delays, some seriously poor driving, Looks like Dan Welch has had to build a new car.

    They sound absolutely orgasmic at times, but I've never been able to adjust to how odd the shapes and looks of them can be!Anyone local to/studying in Birmingham and knows of where car meets are held? I've been at uni for 2 years but never met another petrolhead
    I quite like hte looks, The Tuscun is unique, and the T350C, while poorly named, looks great too, the clear and steeply angled spiler on it is something not seen elsewhere. The interiors of Tuscuns and others around that time are just great and not really rivalled.

    Only two steps above pit access, the first is gridwalk, the next is to actually be driving on the track. Jealous.

    True, but even having a contact like that must give you some perks on occasion?

    He's always given them to my Dad before, and he is terminally ill so it won't be lasting very long.

    That was before my time, so whilst I'm sure they may have been better, I have a soft spot for the V10's, won't forget hearing one at goodwood, think it loosened a few teeth echoing through the tree's...

    Hmm, they dont really sound of anything though.
    Exterior they sound magnificent (impressive is the word)! But onboard, not so!

    Really good, but not as enjoyable racing as on a track! Nascars sound amazing!!
