Default Greetings..

Hi I'm Charlie from the Herefordshire Worcestershire borders. I come from a Bike / Kart racing background where I used to spend literally hundreds of hours in the workshop building bikes. Yamaha R1s were and still are in my blood. But getting a wee bit longer in the tooth means I'm now looking for something a little different.

Problem for me is I'm a big fella. I stand 6.4 and big built. Not fat just big built. I had a sit in a mates Dax Rush which was too tight. Steve the owner reckons space in the footwell is compromised by its TVR derived V8 and thinks a Cossie based car might offer more space as the pedal box could be bigger and placed further forward.

Soggestions on car types and engine combinations would be very welcome. Ideally I would like a seven based type car if possible.

Cheers.... Charlie.

Lol on your response Charlie, one thing you will notice on this forum some sections are not read that frequently. But hi there.
I have a Tigercat they are a little snug. I'm 6ft 1 size 10 shoes and manage reasonably well. The Dax Rush has recently been bought by MAN Motorsport. I looked at their reworked Rush, BMW powered, at Stoneleigh and it has a little more room, might worth a visit. Are you planning a build or secondhand? http://www.manmotorsport-rush.co.uk/
