No, car was collected from Goadby Marwood near Melton Mowbray, I"m in Shropshire so have some wonderful roads on my doorstep - also both Oulton Park and Donington are less than an hour away

Footrest is there as the oil tank for the dry sump system is just behind - its actually of for a passenger up to about my height - so just under 6 ft - does a great job of keeping the feet warm too
