Many years ago a friend built an Ultima GTR and I did get a ride in it - quite an experience !

There's a documentary that has just appeared on YouTube with the history of the cars and company - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YxxL9Me7pqc - quite interesting ! and from our point of view the prototype Ultima used Lancia parts ( this is mentioned in the first few minutes of the video ) - the question would be : does anyone know what they would be and from what ?

If you pause it at 40 secs the brochure states  "Lancia Beta ; Rear Calipers"  Wink
Text also points towards the need to have a handbrake, presumably as it was aimed for road use rather than pure race use, hence the need for a handbrake using a rear disc setup which was rare in those days, certainly nothing from the usual stuff by Ford etc back then.

Just sat and watched it all, what a great find!
Particulalrly liked the early footage from Mallory Park and Cadwell Park as I'd have been in the Cadwell crowd for sure.
Thanks for sharing  Cool

I haven't watched it all yet but I remember Bob Light and Nigel James at 750MC races.
Also I had a ride in a demonstrator a Castle Coombe kit car day, 5 a go? The thing I remember about that day was my safety harness having parted company with it's mounting, had a temporary fix involving self adhesive tape, which failed as I buckled up. Always fancied a Noble 23 myself but my next Noble pasenger experience was at Brands Hatch where I quickly found out just how death defying efficient a modern braking system can be. Thankfully we were baulked on the next lap.
