CHASSIS 31 – This car is owned by Trevor Walker and was built in eleven months and hit the road in 2000. Unusually, it's powered by a later 2-litre Ecotec Vauxhall engine, running the original injection and producing in the region of 140bhp. The car has recently been repainted and had new wheels. It was also featured in Which Kit? magazine in 2003.

CHASSIS 32 – Owned by Roger Fish, he started the build in October 1999 and got it through its SVA in July 2000. He always intended to compete in Speed Events and in his first year, 2001, he won the Best Novice Award in the LDMC Northern Sprint Champioship. By 2003 it had an engine by QED giving 230bhp and reving to 8250rpm, as well as close ratio Quaife gearbox internals and a Quaife LSD and low ratio final drive all straight cut. As you can see from the images, the car no longer has a windscreen. It has a one-off bonnet, the engine cover is aluminium and there is an undertray extending the floor beyond the rear valance and a front splitter. The dashboard has gone and there is only one seat, which weighs 2kg. The car now weighs 580kg.

CHASSIS 33 – This car is owned by Ian Warhurst. He bought the kit 1999, before taking two years to build it. The engine is a Vauxhall 2-litre XE twin-cam rebuilt to new standard spec using an F20 gearbox. It has had a hi-flow alloy airbox fitted. The front brakes have been uprated using Hi-Spec calipers, rotors and bells. The rears will follow suit soon. It was sprayed by Car Craft using Volkswagon colours... silver, black with red markings.
