The Ring Pig “Cornering is like bringing a woman to climax.” Sir Jackie Stewart
As some of you may well know I love the Nürburgring, and while I know it’s not for everyone it is for me, I can’t put my finger on just one thing I love about it, it’s the full package, the location twisting elevating through the mountains, the speed, the noise, the food, the smell, when I drive it no matter what I’m in I feel alive and I feel free.
Having four daughters is expensive, it’s leaves me very little money and time to do the things I once found so easy, but my passion for the Nürburgring is so great that I had to do something about it, so I give you the ring pig aka P19 RNG my wife has kindly bought me this number plate for my 40th birthday (which isn’t until April) and as my children all call me pig (aka daddy pig from peppa pig) and I love the Nürburgring called the ring to those in the know, the number plate was perfect.
As I like building things as some of you will be aware (if not check out our adventure Instagram @the_adventure_couple) I thought I would build myself a cheap track day/child transportation car, It had to have four seats and at least a little power, it had to be easy to work on and get parts for, it had to handle well, and it had to be cheap.
Over the next few months I’ll be modifying it and updating my progress on here, any questions just ask.... #nurburgring#nurburgringnow#nurburgringlife#nürburgring#northloop#builtnotbought#homemade#puma#fordpuma#trackday#trackcar#trackcarbuild#project#germany#nürburgringnordschleife#pig#theringpig#P19RNG#ford#ringtool#ringtoolcommunity
Ready for 4.62 FD and Kaaz 1.5. At initial inspection the internals seem in good condition for a nearly 20 year old diff and about 10 track days! Casing had some small surface cracks which is a bit concerning 🤔 #s2k#s2000#trackcarbuild
How many tools it takes to not separate a ball joint on a Maserati
My most hated job on any car and yet again I failed. 6 hours later I have had to admit defeat. I even bent my pickle fork. Only one option left and that is to get professional help - not something I have done in years.

H&R springs fitted to the rear coilovers. 42 degrees Celsius in the garage. Fronts are next then I'll dig out my old string and floorboard alignment tool.
Staffordshire university recently acquired this very well spec’d Ford Fiesta ST track day car for the students to hone their skills and knowledge upon. It is a very well built car as far as modifications go but lacked that ‘racing look’. Well, we think it looks the part now! ⭐️ #trackcarbuild#trackcar#becauseracecar#ford#fordstowners#vinylwrap
