Chris Bolton puts the WPVW formula vee on the Dyno for the first time with the new WPVW prepared 2165ml turbo engine . As the engine comes up on Boost for the first time the Exhaust temp rises and the heat resistant paint cannot withstand the temp and starts to smoke . The new combination produced 175bhp @ the wheels on 15psi Boost and E85 fuel.
Original 1976 LeGrand Mk22 Formula Vee
This is an original 1976 Le Grand Mk22 built by Aldin 'Red' LeGrand in 1976
and raced in 1977.
I am trying to find history, pictures and stories on this vintage FV race
car for its future restoration. The car has chrome front end and chrome
rear transmission axels, the original transmission is not in the video but
I have and is been inspected for gearing.
The trailer also is really neat, simple but great detail in function. The
trailer came with the race car and looks to be in the same area.
Some people who I am looking to contact that may know are the following:
Robin LeGrand, Bob Campbell, Andy Mahood, Slim Peperdine, anyone who has
knowledge regarding Le Grand and KWIC.
Any help would be appreciated,
First Formula Vee Drive - PA Hill Climb/SCCA Time Trials (Spring Jefferson at Summit Point)
1st place, 1st time driving the Maloney Racing Mk 2.5 Lazer and 1st TT
event. Thanks Hughie for all the generous support!
This was my final set of laps which were good enough for 1st place that
weekend (after only getting to run the first day). I was only a couple
tenths off the lap record held by my friend Chris Elwell.
My main priority was to learn the limits of the car without incident.
(there are some laps where I was experimenting and not following a perfect
Formula Vee Décima Etapa
Evento realizado no dia 19/Janeiro/2013 (sábado) no autódromo de

2013 NSW Formula Vee Championship - Round 5 - Race 1
Start Position: 4th, Finish Position: 4th, Best Lap: 1:14.6014 (FL)
Location: Sydney Motorsport Park (North Circuit)
I had a collision on the first lap with #22 and fell back to 13th. I was
going to go deep into the corner and go around the outside while the others
were fighting over the inside, but #22 moved over to the outside and braked
sooner to take a different line and I got caught out. Completely my
fault... my stopping distance probably wasn't helped too much by an oily
rear disc caused by a failed rear axle bearing that we had just fixed.
This is my first year in any form of motorsport so don't be too critical ;)
