We used to race in division 2 category,but we always went for race in a super category as well,where we had to race with stronger, much more modified cars.
We won the championship in our (div 2) category,and we won the super category as well! So we were a DOUBLE CHAMPIONS..... :)
Once it was a race for team members (mechanics).It was like every team can nominate a mechanic who can drive a car on a same race track,so every driver was a mechanic who normally work i the pit lane.
I WON this race with this car..... :) :)
We had no technical fault or problem,the whole car worked well,and my friend drove brilliantly... :) we were and still are proud of the result...
But after finish of the season something bad happened....it was an extra race just for fun and my friend said i deserved to drive it again and have fun....the things started well ,but after a fast corner i slipped out of the track and i crashed the car badly...front end ,rear end,roof damaged...it was my worst nightmare to see the car in a state like that......
But my friend told me: nevermind! im sure u can repair it......
I said (in tears): yes i will do,and it will be nicer than ever!
We put it in the garage for a rest....
Few weeks later my friend said he is thinking about a different project....he would like to try the rally...
That was the point where the VFTS project started.....
(i should have a pic about the car after the crash.i will put it here if i find it)
Anyway he wanted to rebuild the crashed body,so what u will see on the next pictures,is the same car like this blue here....
