Is this the car built in the 70's on a up side down MG chassis, i believe i saw this at Brooklands auctions about 5 years ago. If so, I see the current owner is forgetting certain information

It looks well made but how ugly - like an American dirt track midget racer.

It was in the paddock at VSCC Snetterton a couple of years ago with a "for sale" sign on it. Looks top heavy to me, but I expect it goes like stink. I drove a supercharged Aprilia many years ago around the streets near Harry's and was quite impressed. I remember the long inlet pipe ended up very frosty! I have forgotten who owned it!

Could do without the head cowling and a longer tail to balance it up. My initial thought was that it would turn over at anything higher than 15mph but I imagine the high ally bodywork doesn't account for much and the CoG is reasonable.
