HSR Chevette Racing at Lydden

A montage of my 1999 season at Lydden racing a 2.6 litre dry-sumped works DTV Lotus Chevette. Approx 260bhp, 820kgs. There are three classes in each race, hence the slower, lower-spec cars out there with us. I finished second in the championship.

I couldn't resist not posting this, even if it just illustrates just how far cars, (and their advertising) have come in the past 25+ years. By comparison the 1980's cars that followed were positively space age in comparison.

Ariel Atom V8 vs 600bhp rallycross Citroen DS3 vs BMW HP4 superbike drag race - autocar.co.uk
Which is faster? An Ariel Atom V8 track day toy, BMW HP4 superbike or a rallycross Citroen DS3 with 600bhp? SUBSCRIBE to Autocar: http://youtube.com/subscription_center?add_user=autocar Here we have three completely different ways of going extremely quickly in a straight line. Time for a drag race then. So what are the contenders? There's the one-wheel drive BMW HP4 superbike, which arguably requires the most skill to extract speed from but has a ludicrous 757bhp/tonne power-to-weight ratio. Then there's the two-wheel drive Ariel Atom V8 with 748bhp/tonne and the Citroen DS3 Rallycross car with only 577bhp/tonne but all-important four-wheel drive. Oh, and did we mention it's wet?
