There have always been mad kit cars with rediculous bike engines. Build yourself for £8-10k and I can see the appeal, buy build for £40k and you need commiting to an asylum.

Only 1 second a lap quicker? I think there's been some figure fiddling here. That Z-Car mini is an animal on track and there's no way that JCW GP is only a second behind. 

I was at brands hatch in October last year, a z-car mini was there along with a Ferrari F430 . Needless to say the z-car ran rings around the 430.
