Paintjob at Batman's Shop, I presume.


Hopefully there was no paint involved. Great result .. congrats! I sure would like to see some better pics though, preferably not on a twit feed.

Well done. The picture on the link shows the car to much better advantage than the one you posted previously. It is lovely & smooth.

Well! that's the first race (that counts) of the season out of the way and unfortunately for us it was like Montreal.

We headed down to Goodwood for Round one of the F24+ season and to cut a long story short water interfered with our control electronics, causing us to run for just 1hr out of the total 1.5. We finished 7th, out of 10 cars but had we have completed full the race duration we should have finished 1st and 3 laps up, but sadly it was not meant to be.

It was myself in the cockpit this time (must be where we went wrong!) and I must have done a good job with the windscreen as the top half of my body was really dry.

Pictures can be found here http://horsfallracing.co.uk/gallery11.html

And a race report here http://horsfallracing.co.uk/News.html

That's a growing list of sponsors on the bottom of your website. Let's some one or two step up and buy some space on the car!

Is that a new body, BTW, or just paint? I'm thinking glass or cf from the original body as a plug? It looks very nice.
