1968 MGB at brands hatch

Went for some track time at brands hatch with some friends in the pug gti, mini cooper and mazda mx5. i had the oldest car there by a long shot but thankfully i wasn't the slowest. The tvr chimera didnt catch me, neither did the BMW or modded civic. Try and spot the new smart race car, it was one of the fastest there beating the porsche. Fastest driver was sam in his pug GTi. Git ;-).

MG BGT classic car review film - Paul Woodford
The MGB is an iconic British sports car that had something for everyone. A claim further enhanced with the introduction of the BGT in 1965. Suddenly the world's favourite roadster had a roof, but at this point some argue British Leyland stood still, and that the introduction of a Pininfarina coupe into the range wasn't enough to keep up with other European and even Japanese car makers in the innovation stakes. Over the years, the classic appeal of the MGB GT has steadily grown, and for many, it is a sports car which defines a generation. But how does it work for a new generation of motoring enthusiasts? Motoring presenter, Paul Woodford continues his series of classic motoring films with classicsdriven.co.uk and Great Escape Cars, and rediscovers an appeal with the BGT that goes beyond '70s marketing slogans.

A short video of my trip to the nurburgring in my 1968 MGB GT. It has uprated brakes suspension and engine. The car performed great bu i kept losing power due to the fuel pump not keeping up with the demand. The trip was organised by the miniForum who i cant thank enough, it was the best trip ever!!! Looks slow in the vid but felt very fast in a classic car! More vids to come.

Bert the Fast Road MGB at Santa Pod
Bert, my 1976 MGB GT. Slow and not particularly low. RWYB 31-03-2012. Not the best time of the day, about 1 second off that, but not too bad before we got another 7 degrees of mechanical advance out of it and increased the CO by 2%! Check out my mate Perry Stephenson with his 10-second Nitrous Supercharged MGB GT V8 monster at http://www.youtube.com/user/NitrousMGB/videos?sort=p&view=0 1976 MGB GT - completed engine rebuild ourselves 10 months ago - +30thou rebore, fast road Peter Burgess head, custom free-flow Exhaust, standard twin HIF4 carbs. This is not by any means a car tuned for racing, this is my only car and is driven every day and maintained/upgraded on a student's limited budget. Regardless, what a way to have fun!
