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.

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.

First start of new Triumph GT6 race engine
Update Warning: Do not use ARP rod bolts. I have had two rod bolt failures now due to the bolts backing out. I find that the finish on the threads is too smooth and may not mate properly with the female threads in the rod. Use your old rod bolt or some good grade 8 socket head cap screws.

This is the very first (very gentle) start of our new high compression race engine. We have new Arias custom made forged pistons, a lightened fly wheel and a recurved distributor. It looks like we will make it to the vintage race a Lime rock park this Labor day!
