Hi everyone,

great to see a Sprint heading East on the A303 Saturday morning 30th September (HOT***L)
It overtook me as I was driving a 4x4 towing a trailer, on my way to collect a Europa!

It looked as if it had racing or competition markings on it, any ideas where it was going from/to?

Hi Mark,

Can't help with the car but if I recall correctly the A303 is over 100 miles long so it might be an idea to give a bit of an idea where you were on the road.

Cheers
Steve

Thruxton is just off the A303 I believe.

oops!

I joined the A303 at Ilminster, Somerset and followed the Sprint for several miles, losing it in traffic somewhere between Sparkford and Wincanton.
The car had what looked like racing decals on its sides.
