MGB V8: Starting from the back ...again
An electrical connector fell off at the start of qualifying so we never got a timed lap. So... back of the grid again... And another funny race. I made it up to 5th at the driver change and looking at the lap charts, my fastest lap would have put us on the front row. Somehow I don't think the race would have been so much fun from P2 though...
Magnificent Machines - The Golden Age of the British Sports Car
Broadcast by the BBC in 2012, showcasing some superb cars via period and modern footage, this is a brilliant programme. Grab a cuppa, sit back and enjoy. Well done to all those involved in this episode.
Timeshift sets its rear view mirror to look back at the golden age of the British sports car. It's the story of how - in the grey austerity of the post-war years - iconic marques like Jaguar, Austin-Healey, MG and Triumph sparked a manufacturing frenzy that helped to democratise speed and glamour.
From the MG Midget, much loved by American GIs, through to the more affordable Austin Healey 'frog-eye' Sprite, and the E-Type Jaguar, seen by many as the ultimate sports car, this is a tale of how, for a brief time, Britain was home to two-seater heaven.
Narrated by Tamsin Greig and featuring contributions from Stirling Moss and Quentin Willson.

MGB The Story of the Best Selling MG Sports Car (50 minutes)
The MGB was the most successful MG sports car ever built, quickly achieving classic status by epitomising the Britishness and winning hearts throughout the world. More than 500,000 were sold between its conception in 1962 and the eventual closure of the famous Abingdon factory, where it was built, in 1980. Masses of archive footage, much of which has never been seen before, is combined with interviews from key people of the era to explore the myths, legends and facts behind its design, production and competition history. John Thornley, the legendary 'gaffer'; Don Hayter, its gifted designer; and Stuart Turner, manager of the successful competitions team; all speak freely of the camaraderie and the secrets of those times.

First drive of the LS1-powered MGB GT!
A big day! The MG came out of the garage for the first time in nearly two years. This is just a "let's make sure it all works" drive. The power steering pump was a bit low on fluid, thus the moaning noise. The brakes were a bit soft but worked - you can see me checking them as I bring the car out of the garage the first time.
And yes, there was a good burnout that didn't get caught on camera.
The car is a 1972 MGB GT that's been fitted with the engine and transmission from a 1998 Camaro Z28. It's packing somewhere between 350 and 400 hp, has a 6-speed T-56 transmission and a Positraction rear. The front suspension runs on a custom frame and is modeled after a Miata, the rear is a custom three-link setup. At the moment, the car weighs less than 2000 lbs.
Please note that while the radiator looks low, it actually fit behind the MG Special Tuning airdam that is not fitted. It's since been replaced with a more efficient radiator that isn't quite as deep, mostly for better cooling.
