    What do you have under the hood?

    I saw this monster at the Bo Peep Hill Climb, East Sussex, UK, last Sunday. Home built machine, with a significant engine - Rolls Royce Merlin, I believe top half Hurricane, lower half tank. It sounded as beautiful as it looked, especially starting up:

    The hill is only 600m or so long and steeper than Goodwood, but even so it drank just over a gallon to do one run!

    See it off the line at 48:18!



    Mad as a box of frogs!
