And there's a magazine for track-day specials like the FXX - it belongs as a feature in Track And Race Cars
, the successor to Cars & Car Conversions, along with all the other non-homologated exotica.
I'm sort of vaguely, casually interested in roadgoing "supercars", from the point of view of their engineering. But until you put a rollcage and a fire extinguisher in them, paint some numbers on and go out and lose a few races, they've no place using up pages in a historic
MS until they reach bus-pass age and can appear in WB's column ;)
