    Hello! and Ferrari 512M project

    Wow, nice collection of parts to start your project with, one of my favourite all time cars. I wish you every success with your build, whatever you decide your budget is, at least double it! With regard to the wheels I echo Mike's comments regarding magnesium, though I did race a formula 3 car...

    MK IV tubular spaceframe drawing

    Central spine chassis may be OK for lower powered cars like the Elan, but think of V8 powered examples and descriptions of wierd, spooky and terrifying handling come to the fore e.g. Lotus 30, De Tomaso Mangusta.

    2019 Formula 1

    Other tracks may be more exciting to drive e.g. Oulton Park (my favourite), Thruxton and Knockhill but none come close to Silverstone as being suitable for a modern F1 GP when you start to consider location, access, capacity, track safety etc.

    Southern GT Chassis #54 Build - The What Have I Done Chronicles!!

    Halon fire extinguishers have been banned in the UK since 2003 (CFC ban to reduce Ozone depletion).

    Reg forms.

    Check section 8 of the following: http://dvla.dft.gov.uk/ved/industry-brief-motorhomes-kit-builds-multi-stage-build-vehicles.pdf Hopefully your IVA document doesn't have any CO2 figures recorded on it so should therefore be taxed as PLG pre 2001 (?) tax rates based on engine capacity...
