RX8 in UK hill climb

Post by spinner » Sun Jun 14, 2015 5:48 pm

Last Sunday I was in the UK & attended a hill climb at Shelsley Walsh & surprise, surprise here was an RX8 entered.
Here are a couple of shots of it in action.
Had a chat with the driver & he said that in the UK the rego costs are worked out on co2 emissions so they are expensive to register & hence dirt cheap to buy, $3000 will get a series 1.
