Myself (David Reid) and a friend bought a 89 "G" plate Vauxhall Nova to "do up" and go racing at events in
We set about making the car race ready as cheap as possible, installing a bucket seat, harnesses, a roll cage and lowered suspension. For the 2000 season, myself and Alistair double entered the car and finished the year with some trophies.
I won the "Best Newcomers Award for the Scottish Hillclimb Championship" and the "Runner-up Newcomers Award for the Scottish Sprint Championship" - not bad for starters!
Over the next few years I set about building my own Nova. Having sourced a Tigra 1.6 16v Ecotec engine, I then focussed on finding a good shell. After viewing many cars I found a 92 "J" plate Vauxhall Nova 1.2i Fun, which was rust and accident free.
I finished preparing the car and raced it in 2004, picking up several 3rd places, 2nd places, wins and even a class record.
Not bad for the car's 1st year out!
