Here is a recent magazine article about Paul Tooms' racing Elan with 180 hp ! I like to watch his racing videos on Youtube.

Really good reading, and I love to watch the videos too!
I find it really odd that that sort of seat of the pants racing is so much more breath taking than when you watch an overtaking manouvre in formula one. With such a massive difference in power and speed, Paul Tooms' Elan carving through the track is awesome and the sound is superb!!

Paul ventured all the way up to Croft this weekend. Had a chat with him about the car, it's a beaut.
We thought he had a great drive on saturday against tough opposition.
I really do hope he has a video of his race.
