Well, well, well - this was the race alot of pple have been waiting to see for a long time........ here are the facts b4 pple go shooting their mouths off ! ! !
Punto GT -
Engine: 1.4 8v Turbo - pipercross induction. (non-chipped)
0-60mph: 8 secs (est)
Wheel size: 17" (14" standard)

Williams Clio -
Engine: 2.0 16v - Williams prepared
0-60mph: 7 secs
Wheel size: 14" (standard size)
Combined weight of passengers: 28 stone
Now I have set ure minds on the facts and figures of the cars, can any of u guess wot happened next ? ? ? Well Im gonna tell u anyway ! ! ! Some of u may have already drawn ure own conclusions of wot happened next having examined the figures I have provided above - but let me just take a moment to explain.........
1st & 2nd gear - the Clio won, although the Punto was running on 17s (a big disadvantage as the gearbox is set up to run on 14s !).... This resulted in the Punto been beaten from the lights
top of 2nd gear, all of 3rd and 4th gear - the Punto won (without dispute, the Clio simply could not catch it - yes, it was not left for dust, but there was no way it was ever gonna go past ! ! !)
Top speed - I think without a doubt, the Clio would win, afterall it is a 2.0, and theres no replacement for displacement ! ! !
So boys, there u have it, bet some of u are quite amazed now aint ya ! ! ! And just to set the record straight - THAT CLIO AINT VERY QUICK 4 A 2.0 ! !
