Busy night

Tonight me and my brother took to the car armed with screwdrivers, a ratchet, sockets and some torq bits

So these are how the car started

First bit of weight saving done lol

Then it started to rain so got the tarpaulin over the car, opened the doors and boot and got a nice light in there (I burnt my finger on it :()

And this is how we left it

Got a car!!

Ok well after much searching I decided on a VW Lupo and I found one up in Northwich, Chesire.

So I hired a trailer, thanks to A Class Motorhomes in Swindon who have some impressive bits of kit down there….and with a bit of help towing it (don’t ask lol) we got it back to Bristol!! Only a 10 hour round trip….

So more about the car its a 2000 VW Lupo Sport 1.4 16v with a few additions, namely: Raceland Manifold, Decat, Powertech Induction Kit , GTI leads, Gearbox from an S , Weitec HiCon GT Coilovers.

Work on it shall start very shortly and I think the first thing on the list to get done is to strip it down and then onto the roll cage.

Towing Car Bought

Today I went upto Cheltenham and bought myself my towing wagon. It’s already got a tow bar fitted and plenty of torque for towing.

I should hopefully be picking it up Wednesday!

Welcome to David Rose Racing

Just thought I’d say welcome to David Rose Racing.

My names David Rose, I’m 23 and from Bristol. I’ve been a marshall at Castle Combe for a year now and I’ve always been a motorsport enthusiast. So I’ve decided its about time I took one of the things I love to follow and try to compete myself.

So the aim of this blog is to follow my progress through building a race car for the Castle Combe Saloon Championship Class D and also my racing hopefully if we ever get there!
