As you'd entirely expect, around Brands Hatch the Roadsport simply cannot live with the R300. Even though the engines are both exactly the same, the Roadsport feels like a tractor. The connection is somehow frayed, the lack of a LSD a huge issue. But back onto the road, running below the axle line of DAFs and Ivecos, there isn't really any advantage to the Roadsport here either. Which is a surprise. Most of us would arrive at these two cars thinking that the Roadsport would prove a point about what is useable - and therefore fun - on the road and what is chest-puffing pseudo-raciness.
