Lovely Caterfield. What variety is it?

Caterham series 3 chassis HPC with de dion rear end and wide track front.
    - Vauxhall XE 16v engine
    - Direct to head fuel injection driven by MBE967 ecu
    - Quaife HD straight cut g'box
    - Compomotive 3 piece magnesium wheels with Avon ACB10 tyres
    - Stack dash and datalogger

It was predominantly a race car before I got it as there is no way I could afford the box, wheels or dash system. Thankfully the previous owner threw money at it in the hope of going faster :)

Not my actual car, but same year, model and colour. If 21 year old me knew I was driving a Mondeo he'd kick my arse! :?

Niiice 8) What do you think of the Essex vs the 2.8? I'll have another capri at some point, but it certainly won't be another 2.8, although it'll probably end up with a v8 in it anyway...
