MSN Cars goes racing: here's 'my' car!
Fresh back from the painters in its new livery the MX-5 is in good company
On the left is the MX-5 GT - the grown ups' car - and to the right an Aston Martin Vantage GT2 being prepped for its Le Mans test. So it's in good company!
Sam tells me the car is only just back from a big ice race event Mazda held in Sweden back in February. Last week it was stripped and repainted over the weekend in the new green livery to match the GT car. Over the last two days it's been reassembled back into circuit spec with different electronics, a 120-litre fuel tank and the roll cage and other safety equipment. As I write it should be at the Chobham test track for a shakedown before final prep tomorrow. And on Friday I'll be driving it!
