When a team decides to build a 1956 Renault 4CV race car with mid-mounted VW Fox engine and BMW 1800 suspension, for 500 bucks... well, sometimes such an ambitious project isn't quite ready when the green flag waves.


But Rocket Surgery Racing didn't give up; after thrashing on it 24/7 for the last week or so, they got it trackworthy about 7 hours into today's racing session. It's quick, it sounds great, and it still has a shot at taking the Ugly Class trophy (all the other Class Ugly cars having done blowed up during the day). Good work, Rocket Surgery!
