Hello, just registered here and hope to do some track days at KH over the summer with TS.

I've done 6 or 7 trackdays at Knockhill in a VX220 Turbo back in 04. Then had a hiatus until last year when I took my Golf R32 down. The Golf was pretty poor on track it must be said, too nose heavy (maybe just too damn heavy altogether!)

I had nursed an idea of a road and track car, something good for the narrow, bumpy, badly-sighted country roads in West Aberdeenshire. Something for all-year round, 80-mile-per-day commuting, small, 4wd, grunty with decent handling and brakes.

With a budget of ~15k I started looking at various cars including M3, 996, various Evos, various Imprezas and even daft big barges like the Monaro, M5 and the AMG E55.

I eventually bought a P1 last August (for 4k) and have been gradually making it right and hopefully making it better. I've just finished an EJ25 build with an Andy Forrest 20G.

Cheers

Hi Tommy,

Look forward to hearing more about the P1. We like an impreza on here.*





*because it allows us to discuss our woes with breakdowns.... Laughing

Thanks James.

I think I recognise your car, does Brian Downie work on it?

Tommy,

Yes, some time ago he fitted the engine. Not been to him in a while but he did a lot of the early work to it.
