This years Motofest had the added attraction of an MSA Sprint held on closed British Roads. Part of the Coventry Ring Road to be precise. See photo belowAttached File  WP_20180603_12_12_14_Pro.jpg   297.32KB   2 downloads

I spotted you!

 

You looked fast! The car was quite quiet too which surprised me, I think mine is just stupidly loud.

The black one was my Pal Steve Whiting who suffered a broken gear linkage on the Saturday so we double drove my red one on the Sunday.

Both quite rare as RHD Opel Speedsters. We compete in the Tunbridge Wells All Circuit Sprint Championship which goes to Rockingham, Hethel, Silverstone, Snetterton, Lydden, Goodwood, and Castle Combe.

 

The supercharger has made the car incredibly quiet but you are right about the speed. I was 3rd fastest over the first 65 feet all weekend only beaten by 2 Subarus with launch control.

Completely standard. Fitted the GM Supercharger with Dutch Software restricted to 250 bhp which means no engine or exhaust mods required and no problems with sound testing. Currently returns around 86dB at 4500 revs
