Cool

John no kidding he " had his hands full " especially on some of those turns with that weight

Looks like he had his hands full using that big steering wheel.

Was curious about the specification(especially improvements to the braking performance)of the car racing at Goodwood and havn't been able to find out much.Would it have been close to the cars as in the post below?.Imagine a blue-printed 430 cubic inch engine.

A few pics I took over Revival weekend. I received a nice reply from Bill Shepherd after I emailed him thanking him for bringing the car to Revival. He said the car was finished a week before Goodwood and therefore didnít have much testing and development time. It will reappear in the near future so I expect great things of it. It did help having a multiple Le Mans winner at the wheel though. Classic American magazine in the U.K. are going to be running a feature on it in November.

Another thread I had missed - sorry Jon - but thanks for posting the link and pics. Very envious that you were able to see and hear the car "in person".

Wowzers - have a look at that massive front sway bar -

As Scott mentioned - apparently some sort of FE power plant.

Possibly the standard steering box under that reflective tape?

Must have watched the video clips 100 times now - loads of fun - darn that exhaust hanger for shortening the ride.

Is it a 430 ci? The surge tank is positioned the same as the 352 or 390 ci.
