    The 2 cars against the Audi in the video are the Reyland Cosworth and Norris Design Evo9 both heralded as impressive, and the pinicale to a degree of british tuning. They went to Norway and had their arses handed to them on more than one occasional, mainly by cars that were put together in someones barn.

    Yes, he;s certainly better at building cars than he is driving them.

    What that video doesn't show is Andrew Gallaghers focus cosworth spanking that very same granada. In fact the AG focus won everything thing it entered so i'd say were doing alright over here. The norris evo is even better now compared to then, but the second time he goes he actually gets a decent launch and beats the granada.

    That granada is bloody impressive though, and we are nowhere near our swedish/finnish friends when it comes to build awesome motors.

    If its the old norris evo, which i suspect it is, then it was running the evo running gear and they said it was terrible at launching. They have nw changed over to skyline running gear and is meant to be much better, so next years gatebill should be good.
