winning a feature race at Nyora 2009 with a big wing on the roof. Steve Bell (Jettco) #69 raced it at Alexandra 2014 100 lap race but unfortunately it didn’t finish.
After Denise’s death my friends helped restore and race at Alexandra 3 hour 2015 where we qualified 43rd and finished strongly in 20th. Suspension has been improved since then along with other minor aspects and the car has had a few runs at Redline to check it is ok. All is now good and friends are trying to convince me to keep it but I made a promise!
