The Loudest Bugeye Sprite in Vintage Racing?
Video from three races of my poor little 1959 Sprite that was wrongfully accused of being "too loud" and cost me a 1st place finish at Blackhawk Farms Raceway with the VSCDA. Take a listen and you be the judge. Warning: I have been told this little 1275cc car is capable of deafening mere mortals!

1961 Bugeye Sprite.wmv
1961 Austin Healey Sprite Mark 1 - Bugeye or Frogeye. Very fun car to drive but also very very small. Handles like a go-cart! Has the "big block" 1275 engine and smooth case trans still alive and shifting after 50 years. Headers and straight pipe make some good old time sports car sounds.

Top Gear - Peugeot 306 3.0 V6 vs. Old Austin-Healey
At this time - We can call this challenge - Old generation vs. New generation car culture. Hammond and May argue about the state of modern-day driving, which sparked a time trial showdown at Prescott Hill Climb Course, pitting a Austin-Healey Sprite representing a mostly middle-aged classic car owners club, versus a modified Peugeot 306 backed by a more youthful group. The Stig takes the two around, with the Sprite, on a serious race-focussed diet, defeating the showy and stereo-laden 306 by one second.
