    Default Spanish Track Day Toy

    In Spain last week visiting family. I discovered in my wife's next door village a Race Car/Hill Climb race car manufacturer and spent two hours at the factory. Silver Car. Very light tube car ( approx 450Kg), Suzuki powered ( 185-210 Hp), sequential tranny, AP Brakes.. 2 x Spanish Hill Climb Champion, 1 x French Hill Climb Champ. With a few tweaks for heating issues they apparently make an incredible circuit car. These cars are now available in the USA. In June this year they competed in the 'Spring Weaverly Hill Climb Championship' in Philadelphea and won as a rookie entrant!

    Anyway thought a few on the Forum might be interested in seeing some Video of the machine. As for the hill climbing, I am not that brave !

    I like that. A lot. I didn't see a price on the web site. It's a kit car, yes?

    Hmm, that's more than I expected. Can it at least make tacos and mojitos?

    My reading comprehension sucks when I'm infatuated by a vehicle, which is all the time.

    When they first opened El Cholo Restaurant on Western Ave. in L.A. in 1927, the called it a "Spanish Cafe" because no one here knew what Mexican food was in those days. The "Spanish Cafe" sign is still on the restaurant today.

    They are fast and agile, but oh, they kind of hurt my eyes. Especially from the rear.
