WPVW vid of Penrose brothers at Huntley hillclimb 1989
in 1989 Wayne and Rod Penrose raced at Huntley Hillclimb . Rod drove the
formula vee with the 2276 type-1 engine and Wayne drove the speedway
super-sedan powered by a 2.4litre type-1 methanol injected supercharged
engine . The super sedan was quite a handful as it was not designed to be
driven in a straight line....

1966 Dick Landy supercharged VW Beetle
This is an 1835CC DP with the CB perf. offroad special cam. I purchased
the DLI kit complete off a running drag bug for $1500, installed it on my
engine and fired it up. I only ran it briefly since it is wicked
overdriven, (18-20PSI Boost) and I
can only run it on race fuel for $12/gal. Plus at the time I didn't have a
way to tune it so I didn't want to mess up the engine. I have no idea what
the timing and A/F are. I would estimate the HP at around 200 or so.

WPVW turbo formula vee dyno session
Chris Bolton puts the WPVW formula vee on the Dyno for the first time with the
new WPVW prepared 2165ml turbo engine .
As the engine comes up on Boost for
the first time the Exhaust temp rises
and the heat resistant paint cannot withstand the temp and starts to smoke
. The new combination produced 175bhp @ the wheels on 15psi Boost and E85 fuel.
