Since Adam has taken a shine to Barbie (the pink mini) we've been busy building a second mini cooper over the winter for me to use.

So here he (Ken) is...in Porsche Mexico blue to match the Impreza.

The plan originally wasn't to enter a full season this year, but I've been fortunate enough to get some sponsors on board so it seems rude not to give it a go - more details of them to follow because without them it just wouldn't be happening.

Adam has been beavering away on the car for the last few weeks, then it was off to MB Motorsport to get the wiring finished off and new brake lines fitted.

The car is now down at Andrew Lamont Motorsport to get the engine fitted and the rest of the car ready for the start of the season.
ALM are going to be supporting me for the season. With their drivers winning the championship for the last 2 years, they clearly know what they're doing! (no pressure!)

My last 'racing' season was in 2015, competing with the Impreza in SMRC Sports & Saloons, with a championship class win and 2nd overall. Hopefully I'm not too rusty after having a couple of years out.

The Impreza will still see a bit of action at SLS, and maybe some SMRC rounds...and I may have a go at some SLS Revolt Races in the Mini to get a bit more (much needed) practice

4 weeks until racing season starts

Wish me luck!

Very best of luck Fee! Car is looking great, a credit to Adam! I'll hopefully be down to spectate once or twice this year. Shoulder operation a few weeks ago means no driving for me for months yet. Sad

Car has now been corner weighted.... was perfect first time round lol

970kg with 3l of fuel in the car and all other fluids, so will need a fair chunk of ballast to get Fee up to the 1075kg with a normal race weight of fuel in the car

Think the pink car is (was) about 10kg lighter
