Very few individuals will ever get to drive anything as special as a Formula 1 car, but one enterprising Brit is doing his best to make that dream come true by building one himself. Kevin Thomas, from Brighton, is slowly but surely putting together his own Formula 1-inspired racer in his shed near Brighton, from bits he's begged, borrowed or blagged.

No satellite stuff for the moment (aside from a 43cm minidish that was on the house already), Samsung SyncMaster T27B550 Smart TV & Monitor, and a few computers...

Very clever, and far more interesting than the average kit cars most people build.... :lol:

I am just SO tempted to cash in my pension fund and go for it. What a conversation point to have sitting in the corner of your front room...
