There are unfortunately not the correct words in the English vocabulary or any language to describe this the phenomenon.

Congratulations and Enjoy every moment!!!!!

A brilliant piece of work. I remember when you and John were in Cape Town grilling all the Perana guys and making lots of videos and taking lots of pictures. Well done!

Ah yes - I remember being 'grilled' in the Cape sun too!

The fruits of that adventure are yet to be seen but will deffo happen now that my pet project is pretty much done. Thanks to everyone who helped us by the way. We will give the credits where they're due.

Well done Chris. So gald you have reached your goal.

To the rest of you: when he says sweat and tears - this thread doesn't show the half of it.

Blame the internet - 5 or 6 years ago Chris saw one tiny picture of A2 - which lead to this amazing car.

Dear Chris

It has been some time since I was able to review your chronicle on the "A2 tribute" project you have so faithfully being pursuing. From my side, I want to congratulate you on a highly worthwhile effort.

I can think of no finer example of dedication to the cause ! I trust you are rewarded with all the accolades and respect this project deserves across the pond!

I sincerely hope we one day have the opportunity to display your car in unison with "the template" of your project.

I am sure John is equally proud and surely contributed in no small way to the end result.

Here's to the ulitmate photoshoot and track test combo !
( Bring car and camera and the rest can be arranged)

Best Regards

Anthony Corin

Hi Ant - without your kind indulgence I couldn't have progressed the way I did. Your hospitality and patience with me sticking cameras and tape measures all over the real A2 is much appreciated.

Haven't given up on coming to SA again - and pref with my car. Have to see how it could be done. If you know anyone who races from the UK and could 'sneak' another car into a container please tell me.

Glad you like the effort over here -told you I was serious didn't I? :mrgreen:

Ps hows Z1 going? What power plant?
