Known as the Cordite it is the latest addition to the Sammio Spyder stable with this one being based on Triumph Spitfire rather than Herald, which has involved some re-jigging of the car’s layout, with the cockpit moved back 8in resulting in a shorter rear section, which to these eyes gives the car a balanced stance. The ‘valleys’ in the Spyder’s bonnet are also dispensed with to allow for fitment of the Spitfire’s carbs, which has also resulted in More >

POWER – REAL POWER, in conjunction with Ballistic Performance Components, has launched the EVO2 for the UK motor racing and trackday market.
