I think this is brilliant (nuts, but brilliant). A few of the lads in work have decided to get together to start their own (very limited budget) retro touring car championship. The rules are simple, verging on non existent. Buy a car that featured in BTCC during the 90's and convert it into a replica touring car. There is no set budget or spec, and looks are definately more important than performance, safety or anything else that would feature highly in "real" motor sport. Cars do not have to be of the correct engine size as used in BTCC and people are tending to look for bigger engined machines. Not sure if there is actually a plan to race them yet, but there was talk of doing a track day during the summer. So far, there is quite a limited field but people are scouring ebay daily for suitable donor vehicles and bits. Already sourced is a Volvo 850 T5 estate (ex Police, white) for £400, a Laguna V6 (£300) in dark green and an Audi A4 2.4 in Silver. There is also a lot of excitement about a Nissan Primera GT that should be arriving soon and a Mondeo ST24 that one of the lads has seen on ebay. The question is, what would you go for? I quite like the idea of an E36 328i.
