Sorry I realised I posted this in the wrong place! It should be here.
Several years ago I raced in various FFord Zetec and 1600 series but mainly drove Zetecs. I also did some FRenault testing. At the time I didn't really pay much attention to the various championships or differences between the cars as I just drove team cars.
I'm hoping to buy a FFord and run it myself now. This year I'm really only looking at doing some testing at various tracks to see how I go and have seen a couple of Zetecs and 1600s for similar money.
I'm inclined to buy a 1600 mainly because I think it will be easier to find a competitive race series to enter when I finally go racing again. Is this correct? However, for testing I think it would be easier to run a Zetec due to parts and costs.
Would you recommend a car? I'm an engineer and I did a lot of driving in my early 20s so I'm not too concerned about the technical aspect and setup.
