Jimmy, what car is Manolis driving? Is it a mad home brew thing? Can we have details? He's a hero

Ellis is looking good for TQ with two round wins .

So far 6 brits in the top 10 (and no frenchie lol), but craggy's bound to recover from his bad luck in round one.

Stegger:

Then Cragg is running a new kind take a look on the pictures from Day 1 they look the same Hupo/Cragg with a bronze or golden look compared to standard Asso. And of cause another top with bleeding screw.

More Manolis Madness please Jimmy- has he walked there? is he infact racing a animal rather than a RC car? Is he pitting on his life belongings rather than a chair?

Anyhow - Go Manolis you crazy diamond!

Manolis is a legend -
He is an internationaly respected designer of radical chassis designs.. (ish!)
He has a habit of turning up at a meeting without vital components such as a finished car. If I recall at Neo 09 he managed to complete 1 lap all weekend after somehow arriving in the wrong Shropshire or something like...
and by all accounts thats pretty typical for the mad greek man who has snakes for hair..
He is cool though!

Some say he spends all his money in his hair... And if he could make a car out of his offcuts - HE WOULD.

All we know is, he's called MANOLIS
