Vauxhall Monaro VXR 6.0
The last evoactive trackday of the year, at Brands in late September, was set to be a super-sliding smokefest. I had cunningly contrived to have a set of worn tyres, ripe for roasting, plus a brand new set mounted up on rims for the trip home. The sight and sound of the 6-litre Monaro monstering around the short Indy circuit was something I was looking forward to; road test ed Bovingdon was going to be there, too, in his project M3 and we'd planned to swap seats.
