How fat is your car?
Posted: 20 May 2010
We finish by liberally applying gaffer tape to the 207's shut lines, because... well, we're not sure quite why, but it feels like a suitably DIY and motorsporty thing to do, and shepherd Stig to the start line again. Before he sets off for a lightweight lap of the TGPHC, we take a second to admire our mighty efforts.
We are masters of engineering. We have created a 207 touring car, an uncompromised, raw monster deserving of a place in TG's Lightweights Edition. It is snappily christened the 207 TG GTI Superleggera Sport RS, and we ready the stopwatch for Stig's timed lap and the subsequent celebrations of our modifying genius. Before you start complaining that conditions might have changed, they haven't: the track is still sopping wet and strewn with deep puddles.
