Mallory Park Modsports & Supersaloons 290811
Movie I made at the CSCC Modsports and Super Saloons Revival Challenge
meeting at Mallory Park on 29/08/2011. Features;
Jeff Wilson and his team fettle the ex-Mick Hill VW Bug V8, they never did
solve the problem causing a viscous weave underbraking. David Tetley and
his crew warm the "Stars and Stripes" Opel Manta 400-Pontiac V8; Thomas
Carey warming the Imp Californian; Bill Richards warming his Rover Metro;
Bernie Chodosh warming his Chevy Corvette; Joss Ronchetti in the Sunbean
Talbot Lotus. Then out for practice, footage from session two. Then lunch
and the rain comes down, first race is a wet start, Mike Wilds in Daf-ne
takes off, Pete Edwards comes through in the Escort Mk2 class-B
Thundersaloon to take the win on a greasy track. Race two is much faster, Simon Allaway (lotus Silouette) and
Pete Stevens (Sertec Carlton TS) having a real battle. Michael Bell the the
"Lairy Canary" Escort has a big moment, Lee Costello in the other black
Escort (V8 power in this one) comes through before it throws the cooling
belt. Unfortunately the camera stopped then, just as the fun was really

Mallory Park 2011 Andy Robinson Ford Falcon v8 supercar in CTCRC's Classic Thunder RACE 1
PWR built 1999 Falcon TURN YOUR TELLY UP !!
Poor start, Had to defend heavy on several laps into the hairpin- cars
weakest spot, spool diff causing wheels to skip round & then as coming off
too fast for 1st gear & bog down in 2nd
Lots of traffic, making it quite a wild drive (fun but fairly dangerous) &
causing the gaps between the car infront & one behind to come & go
was going to edit it down but something happening on most laps, so I can
bore you with the full race
started 2nd finshed 2nd 4 secs off lead
Sunbeam Tiger 1966 Hot Little Ford 260 V8 Power Makes BIG Shelby Style Excitement
Yes a REAL TIGER and listed in the Tiger registry. One owner the last 20+
years. He has not driven it much, just when time and the right occasion
came up to take off and enjoy! Owned by a precision machinist/fabricator,
he knew how to care for the car and you can see it is a very nicely
preserved original Tiger. YES there are some non-original pieces, so all
you Tiger aficionados can go ahead and name them if you like. But it still
does not matter, the car is real and is a small little Super Car, Just as
the original folks at Shelby American intended. Yep, I said Shelby
American, you can read about the development history online.
Yes, the original steering wheel and horn ring was removed and put in a
box. The original steering wheel is just a little to big for a driver over
6'2" wearing a size 14 shoe. So the smaller Nardi wheel clears up that
problem. The front brakes have been upgraded, but all the stock parts are
in the box put away. Yes, it needs a new convertible top cover, but the
frame is in super condition. It has never had a hardtop, but it did have a
zippered tonneau cover at one time. By the way, I have now seen photos of
three Tigers with this battery box position.
134380 / 1967 Sunbeam Tiger

No matter what, American auto enthusiasts will always know the Sunbeam
Tiger as "that car from Get Smart". While a stock 1965 Sunbeam Tiger may
have been Maxwell Smart's ride of choice, the boys at KAOS probably tooled
around in something closer to this 1967 model. While it still resembles a
garden variety Tiger, the similarities end there.
Appeal starts on the outside where an even coat of Torch Red graces the
familiar Tiger lines. Super Sport-style stripes run from nose to tail,
accenting the base coat in a shade of silver borrowed from the BMW paint
charts. The paint work is impressive but a lot of the initial "wow" factor
can be attributed to the laser straight sheet metal below. Deleted bumpers,
HID headlights, a custom hood, and a taut tan canvas top finish the
exterior with style.
What makes a nimble 2,500 lb convertible even more fun? Why, 449 rear-wheel
course! The source of that power is a Ford 427ci Windsor V8 bolted together
by the crew at Paul Anthony Race Engines. The parts list includes
high-quality internals paired with big pieces like AFR 225 heads, a
customized Trick Flow intake, and Electromotive fuel injection. Thanks to
10.7:1 compression, the car runs on premium pump gas and makes itself known
through long tube headers that flow into a side-exit Exhaust with glasspack-style mufflers.
The foundation is a custom 2x3 tube chassis in a fresh coat of red paint.
Up front, a Chassis Works Mustang II-style front suspension
incorporates chrome control arms and VariShock coilovers while a custom
ladder bar setup with Moroso coilovers keep the rear in place. Steering is
provided by a manual rack and pinion while massive Wilwood brakes provide
the stopping power. In the center of that hardware, a Tremec T56 6-speed
prepared by Rockland Standard Gear spins power back to a narrowed Ford
9-inch with a Detroit locker and 3.50 gears. Seventeen-inch Vintage Wheel
Works 8-spokes connect the chassis to the road.
As you might expect, the interior is compact and mostly business. A pair of
bucket seats provide seating for two while a 5-point roll cage, Simpson
harnesses, and Auto Meter gauges round out the space. There is a functional
trunk though most of it is occupied by a the 20-gallon fuel tank nestled
between the frame rails.
This '67 Sunbeam Tiger is an absolutely brutal car certainly not intended
for the faint of heart. With its stout 427 and obvious focus on speed, it's
the kind of car that not only turns heads but gets you instant respect just
for having the guts to drive it on public roads. If you're looking for a
compact thrill generator guaranteed to steal the show wherever it goes,

The World's Fastest Lotus? - /TUNED
Frank Profera has spent six years making his Lotus go faster, stop shorter, and corner harder.
Though it only has to move around 2,150 lbs, Frank's Lotus makes 680 wheel
horsepower with a
twin-charged 1.8L engine; giving it a better power-to-weight ratio than
Mario Andretti's Formula One Lotus. It's an ongoing project that may never
be finished, because of Frank's never-ending obsession with speed. We had
to take it for a ride.
