Clever use of the IP address, but not necessary. Unlike others this is a fairly free place where signatures, avatars and yes posting links, are not filtered and free for everyone's use.

BTW, yes I did enjoy the photos, thank you for sharing, that is a rare beast.

I merely posted the link to save me having to upload the pics again. You are more than welcome to upload them here from the link if you want.
DJ, yes you are right about the AutoItalia piece. This car also featured in the EVO magazine Ferrari special last year too.

My sincere apologies for not being clear. I've been to some sites where the forum software will *********** a url making it not work. One way to circumvent this would be to post the IP (as you did). Therefore I thought this was your intention (cicumvent a filter here). Hence, my post saying, clever use but not needed (no filters here except the occasional F word).

I do hope to post the video to our video forum. Strange to fire up the car to move it that short distance but a pleasant sound nonetheless and worthy of a post.

Fchat has been having problems, the ip address is what we've been getting forwarded to for a few days.

The 288 GTO is beautiful, the EVO is just plain ugly (IMO), but damn I would kill to see that thing racing on the track.

No prob :D . I should've have used a camcorder for the video but only had my digital camera, hence the small clips. I'll get some proper footage next time :wink:
The EVO was quite a sight and sound on track , especially compared to the ultra modern 360 Challenge cars.

Issue 105 of Autoitalia features this car; There are also a few new pics in the original link following the car's recent outing at S'Stone.

Few snippetts from AutoItalia article;

"....the trusty 288 Evo was recently treated to a rebuild. Brakes, suspension and transmission have been overhauled and the car is at Snetterton for a shakedown.
Before dismantling , the dyno measured the power output of the 2.8 ltre V8 @ 440BHP.The old Magnetti Marelli management system was ditched in favour of a fully programmable Motec system. Without increasing boost, the Motec ECU raised the power output to 550 BHP.The motor was then dismantled and rebuilt and uprated using state of the art pistons, rods , valves, six throttle bodies and water injection. The standard Michelotto race cams are retained as are the twin IHI turbos and twin intercoolers. Power is now 661 BHP - and could reach 700 BHP on race fuel- with just 1.87 bar boost. Charge temperature is the key to to turbo power and the 2888 GTO is limited by the size and position of its 2 intercoolers. Fitting larger intercoolers in an area with high airspeed is not possible without losing the car's character. If it were , then 1000 BHP would be possible....."
