He's foretelling the future. It will happen in 2021. Or maybe 2022.

First off, I don't think much of the recent postings, particularly the extracts from FB containing bad language which are not appropriate on this forum to be frank.
However, as nutty most of us find the claims made by the owner(s) about this car, I don't believe that when he said "Goodwood", that he actually said he'd be at "Goodwood Revival" or, "Goodwood Festival of Speed".
Perhaps he's simply driving around his field, which is in Goodwood.

Living down South, Goodwood is presumably his local circuit. Here he is testing his MR2. It does sound good for a 4 banger. Hopefully we will get a nice video of the Interceptor one day! The manual box sounds so much fun.

Dear all.

Can this post be shut down please.

Keep the photos, and yes, yes I don't have to read it, but much of the content doesn't help...anything really, let alone the standing of the JOC.

I think not the same 2 cars.
The one pictured by Tim is clearly an F registration, I think PWO 393F, this one is RAX 40G, so a different car.

I agree but mostly due to the foul language contained in some of the posts.
Micky taking of someone who disagrees with most of us, as you rightly suggest Matt, does not help any of us, nor the standing JOC.

I have started to censor some of the foul language (by non-forum member) quoted in the posts. I have also removed my light hearted mickey taking.
