The 'V2' incarnation is looking great! The white chassis certainly looks different against the purple parts... I like it 8)

I've been running my Cougar1 for two race meetings now, I'm just getting to grips with it but it seems quite easy to drive.... I also have a Cougar2 which needs rebuilding/restoring, but when I get that done it will be interesting to see how it compares with the older car.

As you probably know Mark, I'm no Schumacher fan :wink: but that does look great.
Love the white chassis
