watched it last night...

and some of Retropower's Project Utah...

like the Gordon Murray Mk1 Escort

much less coverage of the actual work than Binky and much more descriptive.

Interesting nevertheless.

The Binky Boys, they say:

Project Update...

So yes, like idiots we've taken on another quick project. We're building a race car for a short series detailing how to build a racecar. Demystifying stuff like basic roll cage install, extinguishers, seats, harnesses, airbag removal etc.

We've chosen the entry level new City Car Cup from the BRSCC and after building the car over the next two weeks, we're going to race it. We'll bring you a typical race day format and some of the action. On top of that, we've got an episode on how we like to "interpret" the rules...

Our little Citroen C1 will be transformed from basic, tiny, slow, underpowered shopping trolley into fully fledged slow, underpowered race car. Should be fun and at the end of the series, we're going to give the car away to the amazing charity Mission Motorsport who support injured ex-service personnel.

Hope you'll join us for the ride and if we can help someone have the confidence to take the plunge into racing, that will have made it all worthwhile. The short series will start on YT in September. And this time, it'll all be finished before the series starts. Don't worry, still on Binky and Escargot too, no rest for the wicked...

Cheers!

Nik and Richard.

Bad Obsession Motorsport

July 2021 Update

It's been a battle. We've encountered a broken leg, brand new parts failing immediately, a bout of Covid, stuff that fitted before inexplicably now not fitting, assembly, disassembly, massaging with hammers, re-assembly, electrical gremlins and all manner of woe trying to get the mini started and episode 35 finished.

Well, despite on occasions seriously considering burning the damn thing to the ground, we managed it. And the filming part of episode 35 is complete so the edit can get started properly now that Richard has his voice back.

We'll get the video to you as soon as it's complete and episode 36 will follow soon after. And episode 37 won't be far behind that also as the interior is more or less complete and ready to go in. With some luck, the completion is just a couple of months away.

Thank you for sticking with us, we are eternally grateful for your support and we apologise for the huge delay in getting this next episode to you. Won't be too long now.

Cheers,

Nik and Richard
