MGB V8 4.6 overtaking at Castle Combe
Trackday Clips from 2009 Castle Combe 1969 MGB V8 (This car is 40 years old)





4.8L 150mph MGB GT V8 with homemade DRS.
Playing with my home brewed DRS system on the V8 MGB. Awesome cornering ability takes some getting used to. Speedo still goes off the scale (140mph) helped by the reduced drag.





MGB chasing Ariel Atom & quick lap 1m16.6
Damp Winter track day at Castle Combe. Ignition problems solved! turned out to be the crank sensor gap was too small. Hounded an Ariel Atom then a quick lap in the 1m 16s on a slightly damp track. More upgrades to come this winter possibly might make 400bhp.





330bhp MGB V8 v 540bhp Evo @ Silverstone Trax 2012.f4v
330bhp MGB V8, (980kg) Having fun with a very fast 540bhp (1200kg) evo. First test of my new rear wing and front splitter. Very Positive results. Fast turn oversteer has been virtually eliminated while top speed is hardly affected. I can carry more speed in the turns without the back end stepping out. The evo has a lot more straight line speed so was impressed with my little MGB. Oh and Gavin was slowing me down in the passenger seat LoL. Impressed with overtaking the Noble, that thing should fly. I could have dived down the inside of the little Vauxhall but decided to just let him know I was there by showing a front wheel, so was dissapointed when he blocked me down the straight.





MGB V8: Starting from the back ...again
An electrical connector fell off at the start of qualifying so we never got a timed lap. So... back of the grid again... And another funny race. I made it up to 5th at the driver change and looking at the lap charts, my fastest lap would have put us on the front row. Somehow I don't think the race would have been so much fun from P2 though...

MGB GT de 1976





Sebring MGB V8 at Brands Hatch
Trackday at Brands Hatch Indy circuit. Gradually got quicker all day. On final lap went a bit hot into paddock Hill bend with a 4 wheel drift puting 2 wheels over the rumble strip. Car is Fantastic, very pleased. Had a training session with an instructor, well worth the small fee.





MGB V8 home made Automatic Variable Downforce system first test.
Drag reduction system to maximise downforce in turns but reduce drag on the straights. made using springs and a linkage. It seems to work exactly as I intended. On this track ( Castle Combe it has improved lap times by about two and a half seconds.





MGB Movie





First drive of the LS1-powered MGB GT!
A big day! The MG came out of the garage for the first time in nearly two years. This is just a "let's make sure it all works" drive. The power steering pump was a bit low on fluid, thus the moaning noise. The brakes were a bit soft but worked - you can see me checking them as I bring the car out of the garage the first time. And yes, there was a good burnout that didn't get caught on camera. The car is a 1972 MGB GT that's been fitted with the engine and transmission from a 1998 Camaro Z28. It's packing somewhere between 350 and 400 hp, has a 6-speed T-56 transmission and a Positraction rear. The front suspension runs on a custom frame and is modeled after a Miata, the rear is a custom three-link setup. At the moment, the car weighs less than 2000 lbs. Please note that while the radiator looks low, it actually fit behind the MG Special Tuning airdam that is not fitted. It's since been replaced with a more efficient radiator that isn't quite as deep, mostly for better cooling. For more information: http://www.slowcarfast.com
