Got to agree with you, it's quite exciting really!

If it's successful I can see this type of engine in all manner of small craft.

Love to know more of the story behind this, and more about the engine itself.

Totaly agree I'm surprised at the lack of detailed info from bwm on this thread.
Seeing as andy was given an open floor by the mods to tell everyone about the venture it's realy being a case of prising info out of him.
I'd have thought any manufacturer would have jumped at the opportunity to promote his product which has clearly grabbed a lot of attention
Maybe someone should point Weslake in the direction of the thread
