My old mate Andy Frost, the Wolverhampton Warrior, piloting Red Victor II. This car ran at the drag races in a street car class. It's fully street legal and home built by Andy himself. At one time it was the worlds fastest street legal car and ran the quarter in under 8 secs! Featured on the TV in a '5th Gear' program. I think he's sold it on now though, to build a quicker one. Andy runs his own auto transmission shop in Wolverhampton, if your auto packs up search him out, nice bloke and a fantastic engineer.

Great capture of a truly awesome car.
