He has been speaking with simon mcbeath https://www.google.c...mobile&ie=UTF-8

 

Yeah I saw on a thread when I just googled his owners name. The thing is it all works in principle, but principle and reality are very different and even though he got it reviewed by an expert it doesnt mean anything until you prove it in a wind tunnel or on track in a scientific way. 

 

For my motorsport degree dissertation I designed a double wishbone front end for a Yamaha R1. I got it reviewed by the funy front end king himself, Norman Hossack. He said my design was very good but it was only a CAD design, no one is queing up at my door to buy my designs because its unproven.

Represent Britain in Time Attack? This actually made me laugh out loud. What a scrounging, arrogant pissant.

He's offering sponsorship so it's a fairly common practise, people crowdfund for all sorts of things these days, If you hate the idea then don't donate... Insulting someone with a dream of racing his pride and joy says more about you. 

 

That being said, he's punching way above his weight and I doubt it will happen, not sure why he doesn't just compete in the UKTA to get some experience / exposure first. 

 

Best of luck to him I say. 

 

Dont pull the "says more about you" bollocks on me. I know most of the story, Ive spoken to people who say they are owed money by this bloke, I've spoken to people who say they have been conned by this bloke. Its people like you that feeds this idiots quest. Yeah best of luck to him if he does it with his own money, best of luch to him if he doesnt leave people out of pocket in his wake. And "offering sponsorship", dont make me laugh!! 

I've also been on the same track as him and witnessed his driving, he's a danger to all those around him so what about you giving your best of luck to all those people. The blokes a complete fcuking idiot

 

 

Knew this was coming, the way you conduct yourself on this forum is frankly appalling.

 

 

Fully agree with you Andy_VX. I have read some previous responses/posts from fiveoclock (and other long term members) and they are one of the few reasons I and other members frequent this forum less.

 

Its a shame because the historic and current knowledge contained and shared on these forums is spoilt by a few antagonistic keyboard warriors..

The point of crowdfunding is that until the overall target is met it is only a pledge, no actual money changes hands.  So if he doesn't raise what he needs then no one pays.  Simples :)

It is a great project, I'd love to give something like this a go. I think a VX would be a great cost effective platform to do it to. I think I would do it as "how fast can you make a VX for the same money you'd buy a standard Exige S2". I'm not going to bother though as the car is still waaaaay faster than I am.

I guess it depends on what experience anyone has had with the guy. No doubt many of the defenders on this thread have never experienced his arrogance. I fully agree with 5oc that the guy is a danger and a menace on track. 2 years ago at Snetterton he was coming out of the pits at the same time that I was preparing for Riches curve at the end of the pit runout. I'd already committed to the curve and the line when he suddenly decided to accelerate and block the line resulting in me having a big moment taking avoiding action. When I politely mentioned the incident to him afterwards his reaction was "I didn't see you but anyhow I have a faster car so was entitles to accelerate to get in front of you" The guy is a complete arrogant tw@t and doesn't have the slightest comprehension of what is happening around him on track

  Correct    

What happens if I donʼt hit my target? If you donʼt hit your target youʼll still receive any funds you raised (minus some small fees), so you can still make good things happen. Our data shows that pages with targets raise more than those without, so itʼs good to have something to aim for.

I've had a look on the IP.Board marketplace to see if they did some kind of "Snowflake" filter bolt-on for the forum, so that those of delicate sensibilities could tick the box for only being in a cotton wool lined "safe place" but alas, nobody is currently offering one. :P P.S. I've probably overdone it, there's only a dozen people that aren't on my ignore list. No wonder it seems so quiet on here. :D

No delicate sensibilities here. I just like to be on a friendly forum without the bitterness and undeserved ego's. 

 

Having met a lot of you at Anglesey last year a few of your online personas are completely different to how you are in the flesh (mentioning no names)....
