    Pleased to receive my race licence, had to go through some hoops but got there. Looking forward to my first race at Silverstone on 4th April.

    Photo is of an old series I entered not requiring a licence, car is currently bare but nice and yellow.

    Congratulations @FUD :) That's great news, what hoops did you have to jump through in regards to your type 1 ?

    In regards to sponsorship, have you contacted Abbott/Dexcom/Medtronic, try for some corporate deals ?

    Ha, that photo is 13 years old. I want number 8 but that's reserved I believe, so maybe 88 or 555. Class B up to 240 bhp/tonne.
