Hyundai and Toyota have gone about creating their models in different ways, with the ix85 fuel cell adapted from the company's existing ix85 SUV, whereas the Mirai has been specifically designed from the outset as a fuel cell vehicle. The Honda is like the Toyota in this respect, and it is expected that new manufacturers coming into the FCEV market will follow this approach. There are likely to be a few 'converted' models released though, like the Hyundai, since the development costs are significantly less, even if packaging compromises need to be made.

Steve Boultbee-Brooks and his Aston Martin DB8S proved once again to be invincible in our two races at Castle Combe retaining the Jon Gross Memorial Trophy chased gamely home by Martyn Corfield in his invitation Frazer Nash Le Mans Replica and then taking victory in the FISCAR Inter-Marque race for the third time in succession. In the latter he was subjected to some interesting tactical racing by a pair of the Lotus Elites, and Robin Ellis in Tony Mantle's example finished second just over 8 seconds behind after 85 minutes of racing.
