To be honest I tried to avoid looking at it as it made me a little bit sad.

Thank goodness for limited vision in the rain eh?

I took myself off the list on the Saturday rather than risk hypothermia.
SNAP... crackle and pop!

Cold and wet. Grrrr. No thanks. :(

What was the green thing in bay 2A? Do you know?

I guess the colour scheme is 'Atom envy green'.
I believe it's an MEV Rocket which I quote "The low cost alternative to the Ariel Atom."

Oh yeah @Fastlane, thanks. I wasn't aware of those.

Looks slightly more forgiving from the front with that Plymouth Prowleresque front grille.

With those headlights and that colour scheme, I'm assuming it's lovingly called Kermit by it's owner. I guess we'll never know...

Looks quite interesting, I've heard of the MEV but never looked into it: https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_cont ... U67dhQOOP0 I wonder how competitive it is on track. It seems to use a donar car from a MX5.

I do much prefer the Atom though, no question there. This might be good to get the kids into cars.

I can safely say driving with some of the PH crowd from near Bham airport to silverstone was the most unpleasant hour in a car i have had the misfortune to ever have!!!!

Froze my knackers off even with 5 layers of winter cycle kit. It was also wet down by Banbury so that added to the joy.... NOT! Car is now SORN'd so roll on March!!

Yes, I thought that was rather amusing, so it was not inspired by something else designed earlier that time....as it looks remarkably similar.
