Text: History: Mine for the last decade during which I have had terrific fun competing at VSCC driving tests and auto solos inc eg Brooklands, Snetterton, Silverstone plus many enjoyable trips to the pub.
Light, fast and agile, it can show my J2 MG a clean pair of heels. Currently with VSCC buff form.
NB This is a road-legal car and not currently prepared for circuit racing or trials.
NB There is a slight leak from the rear main bearing which causes the clutch to slip if the car hasn't been used for a while. If this happens it is quickly and easily burned off and it has never bothered me - this is not unusual with A7s. I will though rectify this (and fit a new clutch at the same time) FOC for a new owner or, if you'd rather do this yourself, I'll discount the price for the car by £500.
