Oops.......

Interesting "aero" treatment - suspension looks like roto to me.

Luckily my own little "inversion" at Cricket St Thomas hillclimb occurred before the age of universal digital photography and internet

Clifford seems to be a nice guy - reasonably active on the Facebook Vitesse group. I think he's also got a dark blue Vitesse, and he navigates in a Mk1 Escort on the Monte Carlo Classic too.

I hope he won't mind me sharing these photos.









The Malta Grand Prix does look like a great event - just need to persuade AJ that it's a worthwhile use of her time...
