You know, I've always wondered what XIDA stood for? Is it just a cool name, or does it have an even cooler sinister meaning?
eXperimental Inverted Double Adjustable
The first concept was inverted but we gave up on that as it was impractical for the end user. Name sounded cool though so I kept it. It wasn't until the Xidas had been in production for maybe 6 months that we decided to do a single adjustable and the things went boom!

Fun time out at Streets of Willow. Not my fastest lap, this was later in the day when we were doing three drivers back-to-back-to-back so the car was heatsoaked and tires were getting squirmy.
It's a very cool experience to see things through from the infancy stage of designs on paper to prototypes, testing, revisions, finished products, and in the end to be out there putting in hot laps in the car on those parts. It's something really only possible in a relatively small close-knit operation such as ours that doesn't have to compartmentalize each various stage, and it is really rewarding.
Plus, it's just stinkin' fun to get out there on a racetrack with the top down and drive.
Filipe, that looks like great fun! That is a beautiful circuit. Formula 1?
As others have said it´s Portimão Circuit ! It was built to receive Formula 1, however that will never happen in anytime soon. So right now is always used for car presentations (due to the great weather that lasts almost the entire year) and national and European races !
