This was Vans first day out.
It is used partly for work and partly as support vehicle for our Drag Racing Team.
Now done 2,500 miles in 3 weeks! London 3 times, Scotland, Goodwood Circuit and Santa Pod.
Think its going to be a busy little van....Tongue

We've had some really interesting people signing up, your one of them! Would love to see some pics of your team.

You picked the right van for the mileage. Ive found them cheap to run, reliable and with enough space for 90% of tasks!

Our website http://www.racing4multiplesclerosis.com/ is not brilliant for pics. Not updated often enough. No time, as you can imagine.
Don't want to put too many pics of a Vauxhall Cavalier on a Berlingo Forum!
Search for "MrJ90xxx" on YouTube for some videos.
Enjoy.

Not exactly your average Cavalier though! Great website and a really good cause. Good luck!

Not quite. And not bad for 32yrs old.
Has 800+ bhp as is and 1000bhp when running nitrous.
Best run last year (our 1st season) was 9.07sec 1/4 mile @ 157mph.
Does 0-60 in 1.6sec! Thats faster than a Veyron...
And yes, it is a good cause. My partner has Multiple Sclerosis, and we are doing it for her, the MS Trust (http://www.mstrust.org.uk) and everyone who lives with this debilitating disease.
And the Berlingo van is doing its bit too.
Think I made the right choice, and thanks for a great forum. Well run and very informative.
Cheers guys.
Martin.

8 second run was our "Holy Grail".
Been there; done that.
The Berlingo is some way behind.Confusedillyme:
