The new Rover V8 in my MGB - Starting for the first time
So, after a year or so I have finaly inserted a new V8 in my MGB. This video show the very first (and successful) attempt at starting the new engine. After 7 years on the road, the original engine's block cracked 1 month before I retired and moved to Lyme Regis in July 2007. I've never performed anything major like this before, so this was a big and anxious moment.

MG Costello GT Mk1 V8
My new precious: an MG Costello GT Mk1 V8 (thanks Lawrence!).
Although the car is a re-shelled Costello, recently it has been acknowledged by Ken Costello himself to have enough original DNA to be worthy of his name!

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...
