Charade ready to compete - and what a competition car it was!
Just to keep my hand in I managed to persuade my mate Matt to enter his everyday Dihatsu Charade, complete with kiddy seats still in the back, in a SCCON PCT. We had a great time and the little car did brilliantly. 898cc and 3 cylinders of raw power gave more expirienced competitors and better prepared (ie prepared) cars a run for their money on a efw of the tests. Wheels probably a bit small but it climbed some serious inclines. Cheers Matt.
I just an ordinary guy with a busy job trying to compete in motorsport. I like to make things difficult for myself by living far away from most of the venues, using a car known to have "issues" and living in the cobble-streeted heart of a Cathedral city and therefore having no room to store a trailer or a van. This means that I have to drive to every event. Or get creative with hire vans...
