Smitten by a Sunbeam Imp
My buddy, who I call "Isetta Jim" brought by his brand new to him 1965 Sunbeam Imp today...pretty cool! Brand new paint, 850 or 875 cc , water cooled 4 cylinder,13" custom wheels. Awesome little car. Hillman imps are simular





Hillman Imp with FJ1200 Engine
1963 Hillman Imp that my father has built in his shed over the last 2 1/2 years. A Yamaha FJ1200 engine has been fitted in the left rear of the cabin driving onto a short tailshaft to a modified Skyline Diff. The footage is of the first race entered on completion which is at the MG Car Club Newcastles' Ringwood Hillclimb track. It set a fastet time of 34.11 seconds which is a faster time than our R32 Skyline GTS-t has set at this track to date.





Sunbeam Imp Historic Racer Debut/shakedown
First test of our new GP 2 FIA Sunbeam Imp Sport. This car is a replica of the famous George Bevan / Bill McGovern BTCC-winning Imp of the 70s. The track is Rudskogen, the race is a round in the Norwegian Championship for Historic Racing incorporating classes from 1961-76, from a 1000cc Opel Kadett to a 76 Broadspeed Capri. The gearbox is a spare, with totally wrong ratios, so it wasn't exactly a bullet out of some of the corners - but will be remedied for the next race.





Sunbeam Tiger v Sunbeam Stiletto
Quarter Mile Dragstrip run against a Sunbeam Stiletto. Did not mind losing in the Tiger when the Stiletto ran 8.36 seconds ;) Mis-shift into second gear didn't help my time, but still fun!
