    Hi everyone,

    I've owned my 197 for 6 months now, I've slowly modified it since purchase and I have recently started doing track days.

    My history is more with Japanese cars but I have been bitten by the Renault Sport bug despite having a few gremlin's.

    Welcome to the forum Conrad! Yep, addictive little cars! You should start a project thread and get us up to speed with the work you've done!

    Nice intro mate.

    Love the pics. The lighting in the first one really shows off the Nimbus paintwork and the R27 graphics look great against it.

    Second shot at Oulton is just classic.

    Nice start :thumb:

    I bought the car with a poly bushed engine, uprated manifold and drilled and grooved disc's.

    I have since added the R27 rep graphics, Black Renault badges, Facelift rear lights, H&R springs, Wheel stud conversion, Renault Sport exhaust trims and a Ram air panel filter.

    I've got some Renault Silverstones powder coated in Porsche Viper Green with 225/45/17 Nankang NS2R waiting to go on, I will be uprating my pads this month along with adding a Cup spoiler

    Currently I have only done Oulton Park but I have got Bedford booked for the 3rd April. I'm planning on doing Donnington, Cadwell and The Nurburgring before ending the year back in Oulton.

    I would have everything booked but I need to get this lot of track prep out of the way first.
