Something to consider but how many running hours is the round britain race going to take? Don't forget a fresh 260 is good for 30 to 50 hours.

I wouldn't have thought triple 2.5efi's would be most peoples first choice for a 2000 mile endurance race, xs optis would be much better on fuel, and much more reliable!

Very blase, but I'm not talking about the cost of fuel, more the need to carry enough, but not too much. As for a 250xs or 300xs being a slow crap engine......
