I know your posting that as a Plato hater, but on this occasion it really wasn't his fault. Newsham moved accross Plato who was in his blindspot. Just a racing incident.

+1. He'd said there was some changing of the design of parts, but having to re-design the whole front end as the front sub frames had been changed so much looked as though it was a real budget killer. But at the same time it does explain to us why the cars bieng built were so expencive. And at least it won't be the norm now that the parts are set.
But there's still no question he took too much on at once. He went out and bought all the parts for 2 cars when he should have really got one built and working first.
That being said, it's great he's made good. The effort they've put in has been amazing and thier speed at Snetterton was really quite exciting to see on the day given their troubles.
It's great they've come out the other side and are looking at a joining next year with 3 good sponsors backing them.
I do hope they have some success
