Tiger Racing boss, Jim Dudley, has been in touch to tell me about his new ERA 30 Lotus 23 replica package.

The standard version is available fully built only and features an all-new Ford engine and Hewland Mk9 gearbox, a glorious thing but one with a price ticket of circa £42,000 inc VAT.

On the other hand, Jim’s new ‘lite’ version can be built, he estimates, for about the same price as the cost of that Hewland ‘box, which is about 10 grand. The bulk of the savings comes from the fact that you use an early nineties Audi 80 donor vehicle, More >
