In part 7 of Bargain Racement, we head to Silverstone for race 2 of the City Car Cup. We want to know if any of the "amendments" we've made to the car along with the testing will make any difference to our race day performance. Can we get on the podium again?

should have tried the trick of topgear james may goes in to bathroom to change in to his race suit and out comes a top performing racecar driver slightly shorter and some kilos lighter.

I watch a lot of race footage, this was one of the most interesting i've ever seen. Never been quite so captivated by a 68hp racecar! Great job, boys!

Strategy & minimising mistakes is why this type of class racing with its restrictions on modifications, develops driving-skills much more than simply access to extra power & suspension-mods!

Hi guys, there is something wrong with the way part 7 was uploaded. I keep getting a HTML5 error when I go to watch it yet I am watching part 8 in another window as I type this and every other video you guys have made works fine too. I know this problem isn't affecting most people but still if you could have a look if there was a coding error or something that would be greatly appreciated. Cheers

After watching episodes 1-6 I was seriously considering entering this race series. Relatively cheap to enter and with the cars standardised so that the result is all about the driver and not the car. But then I watched this episode and realised that other competitors could gain advantage by using engineering techniques that I wouldn't have a hope of replicating. So now I won't bother entering this racing series and I'll look for one that is more properly controlled. I really admire the engineering prowess of Richard and Nik and this series is very entertaining - and I'm a Binky fan - but sadly this has highlighted an endemic problem in motorsport.
RJM 2 kuukautta sitten
All amendments banned! I'm sorry for you that it was wasted effort but I think we all enjoyed your attempts. Nevertheless I think it's for the good of the series that engineering advantage is minimised.

Great videos! I assume in the series you're not allowed to drill speed holes etc? On the MX5 because the aero is like a brick, people end up drilling holes in the rear bumper etc to decrease drag.

@Bad Obsession Motorsport Why are you so afraid of finishing 1 project ... people love your channel so do I. But how many channels have a mini conversation ..... only you I believe.... When I watch rally races I enjoy the crashes and no I'm not wishing for you to crash but unless you are the driver it's just plain boring. I'll bet that your little rice cookers videos are more difficult to make just to find the right clip to edit and upload.
