I bought it May 2002 & immediately started tinkering; I set the brakes on fire on the drive home from collecting it so that was the first of many changes-

After doing a lot of trackdays, I finally realized an ambition in 2013 & did a bit of hill climbing + sprints in the Bugatti Owner’s Club competition. After I worked out the handicap system was flawed (target times) I switched to the TVRCC Speed Championship in 2014 & won the V8 class that year & the following one too.
Yeah, that’s not the ideal racing line through ‘pardon’ hairpin at Prescott. To be honest I out braked myself going into the corner & was far too deep; the only way to get round was to give it a bit of gas. I overdid it a bit guess what happened the second after the picture?
On my next run up the hill I beat my previous record......
