        There was also a letter the August edition it about the ex Napiersport group 5 car. Illustrated by a pic of Jerry Bailey in it at Abingdon. A David Grayson - anybody know him?

        Saying he had a mid engine kit car he'd had for a while and is putting a turbo Rover V8 in it, and wondering about welding brackets to the block so it would fit an Audi transaxle. The text doesn't mention the Group 5, but there's an otherwise pointless picture of the car beside the letter!

        Umhh, not surprised he's given up with the Alfa installation.
        That car had a decent concept behind it and some of it very professionally carried out, but I think the money ran out before it was ever finished off properly and subsequent to this it was played around with by too many hooray henry's.
        No-one on or associated with this site I should say.
        Lionel put a "very optimistic" value on that car, which was never realised and there is a back story to it's eventual sale.
        Still, good luck to anyone carrying on with it.

        Strange to go with a rover V8 turbo and an audi transaxle - If it was me I would go with the audi twin turbo V8 or v6, which should be a much better and easier installation.....
