Club Prospect Dominic , ran 16.1 , nearly making the 15.99 cut off for club membership . He had a great weekend , putting in 30+ passes . The car is coming apart and off the floorpan over the winter for a complete re-paint . The engine ( 1776cc ) will be having some head-work and a bit of tinkering to get him in the 15's . Well done so far Dom ( he's 21 i think , doing well for a youngun )
