I thought this might be of interest to some...
This series started yesterday so still too early to say how good it will be, but an ok start :)

Love a good rebuild series . Will continue watching . I watch a lot of samcrac and rich rebuilds on YouTube. They demistify a lot of car repairs

Love a good rebuilding channel, been watching the goonzquad channel for about a year, two young brothers rebuilding supercars amongst other cars, the 700hp Jeep Cherokee trackhawk they've just finished is epic, that supercharger whine just does it for me

If you've never watched Project Binky on YT, you're missing out big time. Will defo keep an eye on this one though.

Edit: I sub to a few builds on YT; Project Binky, Homebuilt by Jeff (911, 240Z, Beetle, Alfa 105), Juice Motors (Defender 90's), Geoffrey Croker (Defender & workshop machines), Ronald Finger (a knackered Fiero!)... there's so many - like all the good bits from Wheeler Dealers without all the waffle.

Wow - cool Doink! Bet that was a hoot.

The Bargain Racement series is brilliant - such a great advert for entry level motorsport.

Karting is great fun, not as cheap as you think especially british champ level, a race winning chassis will set you back 4/5k, and engine that is capable of winning races is 3k, plus spares like seats, axles, bodywork, wheels, hubs, nuts/bolts, fuel/oil etc, some guys who win championships pay teams to run them and just arrive and drive but at 2k a weekend it gets a bit silly, a karting version of F1 and watching Merc win every other week

I can believe it! I know a few people in the motorsport business, and if there's one thing it ain't it's cheap!

My old boss used to race karts at a much lower level - until he had a shunt that badly injured him. His hobby nowadays is restoring clocks...

Christ. Lucky to get away with broken bones I guess! :oops:

My boss tail ended someone and somehow the seat lateral support dug in behind his ribs as he was tail ended himself. Very nasty chest injury.

Yes very lucky, I broke a Rib Karting, similar thing unsighted into a stationery pile of crashed karts, still have a lump on my back from the seat too! Given that up now.
