    Jesus this looks bad:

    As people have probably seen over social media and the news, we have had a fire at our unit, Not sure on the full extrent of the damage but as it is clear by pictures... 99% of everything has been destroyed unfortunately along with customers cars which we are most upset about, once we have more details we will publish them to keep our customer base informed,
    We hope to be up and back to normal as soon as we can but as its understandable, its going to be a long time before were up and running again,
    2 things we're thankful for is that no one has been hurt and secondly that all of the help and effort that has been offered by everyone involved, well and truly thankful for everyones efforts and help we've recieved,
    We'll keep everyone informed and hope to have emails up and running soon,
    Thanks to everyone again!

    Andy Forrest:

    They said it would never work, this time I thought "they" may be correct!
    Probably the craziest idea yet on the Impreza. Chain drive front wheels.
    Using drag bike race chain rated for 500bhp which will be transmitting a clutch controlled maximum of 200bhp per wheel, to a tyre that has approx 270kg load. So similar loading to a bike (with rider) launching with all its weight on the rear wheel.
    Not the most elegant solution but our target was 50:50 Front/Rear weight distribution and a very low CofG. In order to keep the engine very low and as far back in the engine bay as is legal for our class, whilst complying with other regulations, it was the route I chose to try.
    The standalone front diff now sits behind the engine, in the tunnel.
    Happy to report testing to date has been a success :)

    More madness to report soon!
