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.

seconds. Top speed: 225!

Ken je de Suzuki SC100 GX nog? Dat ontzettend kleine coupeetje dat de
Japanner in de vroegste jaren '80 op de markt brachten? Die had een
motortje van 49 pk en schoot dus maar weinig op. Titus Koreman en Joop

gekgeworden steegvlieg door het verkeer.
Supercharged home made Straight Eight by Desperate Dan Vid 2
Built in a shed, it fired up first go. I was hoping it would sound real

build stuff? Maybe your nails are clean because you can't build eff-all &
just sit behind your computer? C'mon folk, get a life.

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
his own, full race Imps are hard to get off the line because they are rear
engined and rear wheel drive, they don't get the wheel spin like some of
the other cars, that coupled with having a full race cam means alot of revs
are required to get the car moving. Plus a race clutch makes slipping the
