sad news - but its how most Uk racing mfrs end up

I can't ( ofhand) think of one UK racing car company that didn't either go under or get bought up - except the ones like Cooper, Lotus and Brabham which saw it was a no win business and got out first.

So its only UK racing manufacturers? Who are the long surviving non-UK companies (and lets not talk about road car manufacturers like Ferrari or Porsche which aren't the same thing)?

Yes, but Dallara is 14 years younger than Lola, so the jury is still out.

Talk about loaded question!
Greg, off topic but did you do any of the suspension on the new Ford Ranger that has just arrived in the UK please?
The answer will depend on whether you like it or not.

The ride comments sort of ignore the huge empty/laden variations on a pick up truck versus an SUV!
These things should sell very well in the UK due to the crazy income tax laws on company "cars" - 50% of alll UK car sales are to companies.
There is a pub near where I live which has a horde of these and vans outside every friday night as its very popular with builders etc!
