But it's also strangely, starkly beautiful. At least that's what I keep promising the BAC team, who, along with their US importer Shinoo Mapleton, have brought the only Mono in North America to the Spring Mountain race resort on the outskirts of Las Vegas. Shinoo's Sector 111 outfit is based 350 miles away in Temecula, California, and specialises in Ariel and Lotus, as well as trick aftermarket upgrades for them. This might be niche stuff out here, but it turns out the US market for lightweight, rather masochistic British sports cars is pretty healthy. If nothing else, they have the weather for it in California.
