    I think I would be sticking my foot out moto-style to much. :D

    Looks like fun....but in a closed course kind of way.

    You could fit 2 on the roof.

    Another question....

    i like top gear and all (and that was a great episode), but you can't register those in the U.S., no? so if so why not get a flat out race car and trailer it to the track? :drool:

    no, i actually looked into it, they have a US distributer in OR and they are *kinda* street legal. classified as a kit car
    Q: Can I register this car in my state?
    A: The cars are being sold as track cars only by the company. The car has been registered by individuals in a few states. Individual owners will need to look into the laws of their state concerning the opportunities for vehicle registration.
