Cadwell park HSCC Hillman Imps VS Minis
The up to 1300cc race at Cadwell Park, Because of the up to 1300cc rule it
was virtually an Imp VS Mini race. Simon Benoy took a very deserving win
after the restart.
Unfortunatly on the restart David Heale's gearbox broke due to no fault of

Sunbeam Imp Historic Racer Debut/shakedown
First test of our new GP 2 FIA Sunbeam Imp Sport. This car is a replica of
the famous George Bevan / Bill McGovern BTCC-winning Imp of the 70s. The
track is Rudskogen, the race is a round in the Norwegian Championship for
Historic Racing incorporating classes from 1961-76, from a 1000cc Opel
Kadett to a 76 Broadspeed Capri. The gearbox is a spare, with totally wrong
ratios, so it wasn't exactly a bullet out of some of the corners - but will
be remedied for the next race.

Ben Graham prepared Suzuki powered Imp
Hillman Imp fitted with a Suzuki 1.3 liter engine which is in it's present
state of tune a far different engine to when it was stock a few months ago.
Weber carbs Isky cam and a few other goodies should surely make this a very
interesting circuit car.
