I have (I think) won some money on a lottery scratch card and it is enough to buy a better turbo than I have now. 

Any recommedations for around £500 please

LOL  Typical!!! 

Ok maybe I need to qualify that with the word trainer just for Alex's benefit

Though that would certainly help me loads!!!

It helped me in Bala, I had a nifty little one from a 'Ford Escort RS' concealed up my butt.

Race ref didn't spot it either despite the noxious emissions and having to stop for Petrol half way !

I will bear that in mind then

Bet he thought the noxious emissions were a result of the pie the night before

I'd love one of these (linky) , which must make turbo training more interesting but couldn't afford it, even with a lucky win!

If that means you might have a spare entry level one for sale, one careful owner etc etc....

Rio, I have a Fortius I-Magic, its pretty good with all the bells and whistles, you can race against other people online, download/buy WR routes etc. 

Im not actually sure if it works without being plugged into a PC, also only worth it if you get good use from it. 

As you already have a turbo would it be a better idea to maybe buy a MTB or some sexy races wheels?

Thanks for your input guys.  I will bear it in mind for when I do actually win something.   I got it wrong as usual. (Glad I didn't spend the money before I had it )

Rio - bad luck.  Will keep my fingers crossed your lottery numbers come up this weekend instead!

I got a turbo for my birthday - it's not a fancy one but I quite like it. You're welcome to come round and have a go any time you like for comparative purposes. 

Yesterday I discovered the happy combination of turboing and watching telly - I can't believe it took me so long! And to think I used to turbo in silence looking out of the window......... (we live in a very quiet cul de sac)

£1000   But should have known with my luck it was too good to be true.  Only thing I have ever won was two entries to the GNR and when I went there to do it my dog had to be put down!

Waff I have a few spinervals dvd's which I use when I am on my turbo
