Not sure about back issues, it was only mentioned as part of their 0-100-0 test.

The total wording stretches to: "Jon Webster's MG SV-R drag car, which we had brought along for general entertainment, couldn't shine either. It's 6.3-litre V8 turbo, which showed 1,700bhp on the last dyno it broke, just couldn't get its power down. It spun it's wheels up from 60mph and took 14.4 sec overall"

In the final rankings, the order was:
Ariel Atom Supercharged 11.35sec
Brooke Double R 12.15sec
Lamborghini Murcielago LP640 12.70sec
Lamborghini Gallardo Superleggera 12.90sec
Ariel Atom Supercharged (wet track) 13.50
Porsche 911 GT3 13.65
Superformance GT40 Mk1 Continuation 13.65
MG SV-R drag car 14.40

Below that were: Ford GT Rousch 600RE, Lotus 2-Eleven, Caterham R400, BMW M5 Touring, Audi R8, Porsche Cayenne Turbo, Alpina B3, Mercedes CL63 AMG, Subaru Impreza RB320, blah, blah blah.

In 0-60 terms, only the Atom beat the SV-R.

I saw one at the pod on the 7th July I think it was. Same colour I'm sure, and it had Reverie in large letters across the boot lid. He was in the queue in the escape lane with some other pro cars. Nice looking and sounding car.

I guess that must have been Jon - must have been an addition since I saw it last.

Jonn din't run at TOTB 2007
Car has so much more in it, the fact he stll runs it in street class says it all.
I'm sure if he was to run full slicks he's be able to turn the boost up :)
