Long, long, long overdue new exhaust. Also another trial. We won a second class award!

Two years?!

If anyone is interested I can type out a summary of that period, but in short: Won quite a few trophies, blew up the engine twice this spring, repaired, no more events thanks to COVID.

It is now in hibernation in a new shed, as I have once again outgrown my existing space and had to extend my storage facilities. A little worrying that a car I happily zoom around in at 55mph is the same size as my lawnmower. 🤔

The question then is, which has the larger engine (both in displacement and physical outside dimensions)?

Austin has it beat, but not by much!

Mower is 530cc Honda V-Twin, 16hp
Austin is 747cc straight 4, ????hp

Not too dissimilar in size under the bonnet either. 😅
