Looking for some suggestion folks for a project car that would be good to maybe cover all categories. More so SLS and sprints with trackdays.

Would like it to be a car that I could have help of a Scottish based tuner if possible.

Car history has been 182 Clio, evo 9, r35 GTR.

Doesn't nessecaraly need to be a road legal car.

Been looking down the lines or maybe a Subaru ( not much experience). or maybe back to an Evo.

All suggestions welcome 😀

I'd say subaru over evo lol.... but each to their own.

Depends on how into it you want to get. A near standard impreza evo will do well in lower classes! I lightly modified one thats stripped will do well in mid classes.

Or clios are competitive!

See what built cars are available and take them on their merits, buying a modified car will always be cheaper than building one Smile

Wanting to try and do the same as yourself Adam and be in the car as much as time will allow when I'm back from offshore.

Miss driving etc to much. The track Scotland sprint in 2013 and a couple of trackdays in 2014 is the last I have done.

I'd suggest buying something ready to go - saves the initial time in building it. Then improve/chamge as you progress.

Paul's Impreza thats for sale is pretty quick now, nice n light.

What you need for SLS and what you need for the Scottish sprints is quite different in some ways and similar in others. You are not power limited in the Scottish sprints you are depending on what class you want to place yourself in for SLS. The class structure for the Scottish Hills and Sprints is very different to that for SLS. So for example a low ish power to weight Impreza could do well in the right class in SLS but is unlikely to do well in the Scottish Sprints where power is not limited. There are other differences but it is possible to build a car for both disciplines. What you buy or build would depend on budget. As mentioned if you are time limited then as mentioned a car which has had the right mods done would be a good start but sometimes the quality of the work can be aan issue.
