Street Parked- Locost at the track

Gotta love how Peter comes prepared. Slicks on the roof, radials on the road.

I was at our local outdoor go-kart track putting laps on Kyoko, and her previous owner showed up in his new project car.

The Locost is basically a Lotus Seven clone, powered by a turbo Miata engine. (1.6, I believe).

I just saw in action today, and man was it fast! Hopefully Peter will see this post and bring up some video of his car, so we can post it here.

    It was great seeing you out there! I had set-up my new Go-Pro to take video…but I must’ve fat-thumbed the record button…so it didn’t record! but the highlight was getting on top of the PGP Hot Laps board [IMG]http://i750.photobucket.com/albums/xx145/first350/Locost/IMAG0036.jpg[/IMG]

    I’m already itching to get back out there once it’s fully dry…the locost should do sub 1:10 laps IMO.
