MG, Porsche, and Triumph with the Zapata team at VIR Vintage
I was invited to go to the historic races in June at VIR by members of the Zapata Racing team out of Nashville TN. Being a car guy it was incredible. Cars you should only see in a museum are on the track doing exactly what they are designed to do....RACE.
It is amazing. If you have the means, you must go to one of these races.
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
Vintage Racing - 1950s Indy Cars startup and race. LOUD!!!
Chris Ashworth records a series of 1950s Indy Cars at Michigan
International Speedway. This was a vintage racing event that was associated
with the Concours d'elegance of America, where these cars were on display
after this event.
This event was incredible! I got to wander in the pits and the garage area.
You will hear these cars starting up right from the tailpipes, and you will
see them driving on the track from the pits.

passing other riders, until something very very bad happened...
Vintage Racing Crash Roll cages are good
This is Mark with Zapata in second place of the last race at Roebling Road.
Listen close and you can hear his rear axle snap. At that point he can't
do anything but hold on. Mark is fine. This is a good reason to over
build safety into any racecar.
We are making a Documentary movie about vintage racing. Go to

Triumph GT6 MK3 vintage race car part 1

copper nickel brake line kits that I mentioned in the video. I will be
adding part 2 of this video next week.
My friend and I built this vintage race car over the course of several
years. It may have been raced in Canada when it was new, but I have very
little information about it's history.
The engine was built to be reliable so that we could sort out the car on
track. It could certainly make more power by increasing the compression
ratio and doing a few other things. It has been very reliable so far. I
drive a street GT6 and I can tell you that there is no comparison between
the stock engine and this one. This engine revs very freely and is still
making power up to the rev limiter (7000 RPM). This is due to all of the
work done on the head, the Exhaust
header and the weber carb setup.
