New plans for Shelob :)

Hello all, I've been silent for a while, though in contact with some of you.. long story short I spent my last track year racing different cars (though mostly Alfas) and didn't do the usual track time in the 4c.. things are going to change though as the team I raced the Alfa Romeo championship with last year is preparing a race build of Shelob.. yep, that's it, after (almost flawless) 64k miles from march 2016, its first track day with 200miles on the clock, Shelob has been put off the road and its being fitted with a cage and all the nice bits to do the UK Alfa Romeo championship next year (although we still don't exactly know what category we will be allowed in). Plans are to race the car in a couple of configurations (also thank to the support of some people/companies from the forum), with a good interest at endurance racing.
I will post most of the updates on the forum, as well as (hopefully) the race results, but if you want to follow the build and racing I will post everything on a Facebook account that will be used for that (Riccardo Losselli)
Car has actually gone to cage fitting now, should be back in a bit more than a month!

You should have come to Brands Hatch on Monday, I had to rely on me and Ted doing all the driving, your input would have been appreciated. :-)

Now if you go in the fully modified class I have a few more things that you might like to play with..........

Wasn’t Shelob the spider from the lord of the rings?
