Post by: LEE on 19:24, Thu 28 May 2009
Heres an email I recieved today

Hiya Lee,
I was wondering if you could help me. I have organised a cover feature for tomorrow in Reading, where we are doing a New v Old issue and I want to do a comparison from a R5 GTT and a new Clio. I had a one sorted (the orange one on your home page) but I was let down this morning. Do you know of any well spec’d R5s that might be able to help me out at very late notice?

Many thanks,
Jules Truss,
Fast Car Magazine,


If anyones interested PM me and i'll give you his mobile number !!

Regards
LEE

Ah just read the original post again and I somehow don't think they'd be interested in my boring old standard ph2 anyway :)

are they front wheel or rear wheel driven ?

Post by: 5teve L on 09:19, Sat 30 May 2009
Front wheel, not sure about any info but it struggles to put grip down on the strip, it's only managed 13 sec 1/4's so far as it's spinning the wheels in 3rd still  :lol:
It's a really nice car actually & the engine has been put in really well.
