Dave my eye isn't that good; Revolution wheels are pretty much standard on many open wheel cars from that era.

If you attend vintage races probably half the Formula Fords are running them.

OK I looked at the brochure more in depth.

I think these would have run as Formula 3 car which are similar to the SCCA Formula B cars.

These would be 1100lbs with around 175-190bhp.

Dave,

I don't know what chassis that is but I believe it's Formula B car.

The car has 4 lug Revolution wheels and side draught induction which are typical of FB cars.

Formula B was essence a Formula Ford with a twin cam motor and wider tires.

I've seen that set up as well and thought interesting.

If I were replacing the twin Hitachi SUs I'd go with a pair of Kehien or Mikuni slide carbs.

There really aren't any cheap options.

The 60 series 5 speeds come up for sale a couple of times a year. They just won't be cheap.

Most of the corners are 40 to 90mph.

The right hander over the hill is called "Phil Hill".

I love that corner; as you can tell from the video as soon as I hit the kerb the car skates all the way to the bottom of the hill......so much fun.

On a side note: the fast right hander, where I tired to go around the Lotus 7 on the opening lap, is known as Riverside. I once tried to go through there flat in my Formula car; in that car your doing about 120 on the approach.....I turned in and the car went about 75ft before it actually turned.....I pretty much decided it wasn't flat at that point. LOL

There are a several cars with a shorter wheelbase. As well as the Metro, there's the Renault Dauphine, Morris Minor and NA Miatas.

Here is my latest race.

The races starts at minute 7:45. I throw it off the road at minute 18:35 (brain fade). There were two minis in my class, one grenaded the motor and the other one broke the exhaust. I got past the wounded mini on the last corner but flubbed the downshift and he got back by right at the finish. Was great fun.

From the pictures of the 1UZ it looks like they didn't need to redo the firewall.............very interesting.
