That ended up with a big blown motor in it with a 4 hole injector if my memory is correct with a scoop mounted backwards with a cutout to guard the blower and belt etc.

I think this car became Matt Gatlands car that he now occasionally races in Super Gas.

Wasn't Matt connected with Matt Wright; he of Rolls Royce fame? I seem to recall that the car was blue and raced at Shakey in the Ultimate Power Series 2004 to 2006.

The name Ray Poole is ringing a bell for some reason with that yellow/green firenza. Matt Gatland ran with Tim Adam I think ..

Really as the photos I've got shows no race numbers. Can anyone else confirm.
