Some of these pictures are elsewhere in this site, but these are a collection of pictures which I think justify my claim that our car has got to be one of the hardest used out there!!
All this luggage was carried round Europe on our first big trip.
Carrying a 1 tonne folding crane back from Machine Mart.
Other strange loads - Mad French 'Sealed Knot' member at Azincourt, followed by Toby playing on his new climbing frame.
Fully loaded up with tires (and mud) after a round trip from Surrey to Somerset, via Llandow in Wales - all in one weekend - about 500 miles including track!
Well used tires.
Trip to Ikea - and resulting cunning packing. Boot already contained 2 crash helmets and other track day equipment - another Surrey-Somerset-Llandow-Somerset-Surrey weekend earlier in the year.
Our car is used all year round, whatever the weather!
Snowy DAY TRIP to Croix en Ternois, Northern France for a track day. Track was closed.
Parked outside our rented flat in Balham, London - car lived out on the street for the first 18 months of ownership.
More snow abuse - France again, New Year '04
Full wet weather airfield day at Hullavington.
Going off-roading in the Quantock Hills, Somerset.
Getting rid of some rubber at the Club Brooklands Handling day.
Getting every penny out or tires!
Car is regularly used for long trips to tracks abroad. In this case to the Nurburgring, Germany.
Another long weekend trip. In the true spirit of club racing, we drove from Surrey to Spa, Belgium to race for the weekend, before driving back to England 1 hour after picking up a trophy in the race! No trailers for us.
Easily able to hold her own against other road users!
Ok - some very occasionally she needs a little help! In this case, the crank pulley had dropped off the engine on the M25.
