Mike Spence Motorspot development car & bloody quick. Developed by Gerd van Aaken (look him up!), 1300cc turbo engine with ERL electronic water injection and variable boost control, full Koni suspension dampers and springs, strut brace, Wolfrace wheels and Dunlop D4 185×50-14. tyres, tinted windows, discs all round, R/cassette, sunroof, completely de-badged. What a car! THE most powerful thing I’d had to date.

Out handled and performed most cars on the road and had fantastic low down torque which gave it great overtaking performance and hilarious torque-steer!

Joined the 96 Club for ‘88’ (£100 pa then) and surprised quite a few cars on the various tracks we visited especially Porsche Carreras’ at Silverstone Club circuit! Once saw 136 mph on the clock while racing a Sierra 4x4i.

Had to have a new factory engine when the 1st one blew up (below). Also two gearbox rebuilds. It was a real pain having to take all the water injection gear off when I had two accidents though (1 my fault). ..so the assessor didn’t see it.
