The occasion was a demonstration of the M3 which is being run by oil company Petrofina in the Uniroyal Production Saloon Championship, on unleaded fuel. In the hands of Robin Brundle, Gerrit van Kouwen, the M3 has taken eight class wins. Petrofina wanted to show that unleaded fuel can still give high performance, and the M3 certainly went well for me at Thruxton race circuit. more > Time Off Guide 530 Gardening 532 Gardening DIY Out Of Doors Rock/Pop
