It is a "Right Hand Drive" car. He sure seemed to have it all ironed out that's for certain! Cool! Thanx for Sharing :th: Harry

About Touring Car Masters, it doesn't say the specs for the cars, but can surely be googled

I took a guess that that the major sponsor sunliner rv was owned by the same person as the car and was right. I emailed the company and received an email saying they would get back to me in the next few days with specs on the car.
