ThorneyMotorsport have been developing their range of upgrades for the car since theday it came out, buying their own car and developing each upgrade one by oneuntil it was fully tested and developed. Thorne continues:
“Itsbeen a long process but we are very deliberate in our testing and developmentprocedure, we are never first to the market but I think we are the best, havingour own car which we develop on means we are able to try out a great many ideasbefore we settle on the best”
