This is a concentrated cleansing agent that effectively removes rust and mineral deposits left behind in the radiator core and hose lines. This advanced treatment also dissolves oily residue build-up left behind in old anti-freeze and coolant mixtures due to external contaminants.

The latest kitcar manufacturer to be given its own race series is MK SPORTSCARS.

With the first few examples already racing in Sports 1000 this season, MK Cup 200 cars feature a sealed Suzuki Hayabusa race engine (via bike engine specialists RLM Racing) to ensure equal performance and managed costs, built alongside MK’s cost-effective Lotus Seven-inspired chassis.

Along with 750MC’s evergreen Locost Championship and the popular Ma7da Championship, these sequential gearbox-equipped machines complete a trio of formulae in the club inspired by the original Lotus that made such an impact in 750MC’s formative years; and now offer a ladder of Seven-inspired performance within the same paddock.

Minor PR successfully launched facelifted Surf at Southampton Boat Show 2022 recently with the image showing external changes – side vents, colour co-ordinated bonnet vent and black headlamps plus other items including sound deadening and additional heatproofing of the engine bay.

The second image was taken by a Dutton enthusiast on holiday recently when he spotted these two chaps enjoying a Dutton Mariner S2 on the River Danube, no less.

Ahead of the brand’s 50th anniversary next year, the latest editions take inspiration from Caterham’s early ‘Super Sevens’ introduced in the 1970s and popularised through the 1980s; a classic, British, lightweight, two-seater sports car with the perfect blend of style and performance, yet re-imagined for the 21st century.
