I know cup cars require a lot more maintenance than a standard GT road car, but I came across this and thought it was interesting.

https://www.facebook.com/groups/566475993460031/permalink/2562025873905023/?sale_post_id=2562025873905023

What do people think? Good Value, not bad, or a world of hurt in waiting. Would make a cracking track day car.

What makes this cheap though. Is it they werent a successful model for racing Porsches? From memory, people budget £1k/hr as far as running costs go if I'm not mistaken, so are they more expensive to run than the average?. Just curious to learn more about them.
