Malibu Grand Prix/Raceways. Best two laps, April 2013, (GoPro Helmet Cam)
Taken at Malibu Raceways, in Beaverton Oregon, just days before it's closure.. Back when I started driving there, in the 80's, Malibu Grand Prix had a "winners circle" program. You had to get a 52.99 second or better time around the track, and if you did, and it was witnessed by a manager, you were awarded "Winner's Circle" status. You got a different drivers licence, and you got to drive the 'special' car. This car had a two-strike motor, and was chassis tuned better. The Winners Circle car could, in the right hands get times under 50 seconds. Lap record, as I recall, is somewhere in the 48 second range. Back then, after a few years of practice, I got into the Winners Circle. My best time in the "faster" car, was, as I recall, 50.2 seconds around the track. Since that time, I got older, fatter, and haven't been able to get under 52.99 despite many tries.. Until today..My best two laps, in 20+ years... finally made it back under.... It helped I had a friend to chase... 52.919, and 52.801. It's not much under, but I did it. Being my own worst critic, I can see the mistakes I made.. and based on that, I think my perfect lap sits somewhere in the 51.xx range, given who I am today. Malibu Raceways LLC lost its' lease in 3/2013. Phone call, 30 days to evacuate, and out you go.. due to ... greed... 34 years in the same spot and they got 30 days notice.. Wrong. Just Wrong.





Malibu Grand Prix - 1980 (Anaheim, CA)
Malibu Grand Prix cars ($15,000 each) at the Anaheim, California location. Locations throughout the USA in mid 1970s to early/mid 1990s. Fun drive, acceleration on the slow side on this 28 h.p. motor version, however would not be for a novice driver. Car displayed great handling and braking characteristics. Video shot in the Fall of 1980. A glimpse back in history. Interest to the vintage kart racer. Believe to be Virage chassis, powered by Fichtel & Sachs wankel motor. Also, available with a Kawasaki Vertical Twin 2 Cycle Piston Port.
