    Hi all,
    Sorry I've been silent for a while. Busy organizing a world championship :)

    Ends up we have an opportunity for one person in the EU and one in the US to own a track day carbon fibre P100DL.

    They are for a certain famous international TV car show but afterwards they are yours.

    I can't go into more details here but please DM me if you are interested.

    Oh, and there is a chance you may get invited to some interesting racing activities on the Mediterranean coast later this year.

    Cheers

    Mark

    I should have added some very important information that is not yet fully public... The race calendar for this year:
    Race 1: August 12th: Silverstone
    Race 2: September 2nd: Assen
    Race 3: September 23rd: Nurburgring
    Race 4: October 7th: Algarve Portimao
    Race 5: October 28th: Misano
    Race 6: November 18th: Barcelona
    Race 7:November 25th: Paul Ricard
    You heard it here first TMC!

    Oh, and answering a question raised by some already... the cars will cost about as much as a 2.1s 0-60mph race car should cost! :)

    Can't wait to watch the races. And hopefully in years to come you can bring the whole circus to Sydney, Australia :)

    2018 we're talking with promoters for Asia and the Americas. If there is enough interest I don't see why Oz couldn't be on the list frankly. Great place. Great people.

    I think COTA would be a great challenge or Sebring

    Awesome! Assen is in the Netherlands and Nurburgring isn't that far away from me either. Might just go there :)

    You don't think the Grand Tour got one?

    Also I'm curious as to race length and stops/charging etc

    I'm living in the past ... Grand Tour == Top Gear
    New top gear does not exist (for me).

    The TV show (I'm not saying which) is unconfirmed. Before all that we need to know if we can find a wealthy race enthusiast who wants to get a car for this purpose. We are talking about a FIA approved track.day car that will go to 60 in not much over 2 seconds and corners on rails.

    Otherwise we will just keep focussed on what's important... getting the race series going. There's more than enough to deal with there :)

    Nice article published on the Top Gear site today!

    Looking forward to seeing this. Will the races will be televised or available to watch online?

    What are the specs on the cooling system?
    KW at first power cut?
    Any enhancements to the cooling mechanicals, intercooler, etc?
