Default Look What I Found In The Attic





With the outdoor season completed and the new indoor season due to begin, I had a rumage round the attic and found these two cars that I am now contemplating on racing indoors again. These were last used some 15+ years ago now so if I do manage to get them up and running it would be intersting how they compare against todays modern buggies.

Craig Harris might even remember spraying the EC shell for me

That Cat shell's paintjob has aged well in design & colours, nice that

The Yoke's shell looks like a simplified Kevin Moore type design....

Get one of them running again ( hopefully the Yoke ! ) for the Caldicot Winter Vintage Series which im pretty sure Pete will be running again...

Ken Reith ran a similar vintage Yoke at the F3's a couple of weeks ago and did damn well with it - OK Ken's a very good driver but it didnt look like a 15 year old buggy at all in performance & handling

I say get the Cat running and then beat some people with it! As you can see in my sig i run a Cat98 which is a Cat2000 but the chassis is a different layout. My Cat98 is still very competative at my club (Bury Metro) I just need to become a better driver and i'm sure that i can start winning races with it. So far it is the best car I have owned and it is around 12 years old!

Haha! I recognised it as soon as I saw that one Lee, obviously a quality spray job to have lasted 12 years in your attic

Be good to see you racing again
