The Turner kit


I derived great pleasure from reading your article “Building and Running a Lotus Super Seven.” I have just finished building a 1,340-c.c. Turner Mk. II and it was really interesting to compare the two kits. The article wasn’t much of an advertisement for Lotus and led me to believe that I found (in the Turner) probably the easiest kit to build and one which when assembled gave better value for money. For example—engine, rear axle and transmission are already installed when the kit arrives (in days, not months as with the Lotus), and the independent front suspension (which caused Mr. Wilkinson difficulties) is also in place. The finished article looks really professional and its performance is only very slightly inferior to the Lotus: 0-60 m.p.h. in 8 sec., and 105 m.p.h.
