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!
IMP SHOW No 1
Starts with photos off slides from the 1960s of one of the very first
Hillman Imps that was registered in August 1963. This is the parental car
citnut3 learned to drive on. Of particular note is the original polished
aluminium cam cover and the radiator fan enclosure with very few fixed
blades. This car was in Balmoral Grey. The show progresses through a
selection of Imps and other variants based on the Imp giving a broad
overview of the range. All photos by CITNUT except the third taken by a
friend of CITNUT3.

Sunbeam Imp racer test
Testing Doc's Imp Racer for 5 laps at Rudskogen september 2009. The car is
a GP2, Fia APP K car, 998cc full-race engine from Reg Patten. At this test
we're using the spare gearbox, which was not very smooth to say the least.
The brakes also need some mods, but apart from that the car was super fun
to drive, and quick as well. With just a couple of quickish test-laps I
nearly matched my best in the Mini, so these cars have great potential in
their class. Next year will be fun as we're building a 2nd car which is a
full Bevan-replica, and I might sneak in some races in that one. Enjoy the
fantastic sound these screamers produce!
