Well done, and hearty congrats, Debs.


Is it a record percentage of the votes for the ROTM competition? I'm sure someone out there has the stats!


Looking forward to checking out how good Sterling Surtees really is in the metal next week in Wales!!!

Wow thank you so much for the votes.
I'm really shocked that I won,I love Stirling surtees but he is one of a kind.
I know it's a car to divide opinion and it's great to know others appreciate the paint job as much as me.
All slks are nice and there was a lot of very nice moters this month.

Ta matey

I'm still shocked as is so different but buzzin that it won.
A few people have said it looks better in real life as you can see the colour change in the paint.
It's all down to the lads at zi's Wrexham and the brill job they did because if they had messed it up or not guided me with the colour it could have been a huge disaster.
Didn't stop the silly witch texting at 70 on the m6 in the rain just after stoke side swiping me good job the inside lane was free it's not like I don't stand out now!!!!
