the course record is sunat like 26 or 27 seconds with the car hitting 150mph at some points....the last time I was there I was talking to an old boy with a single seater, Vtwin Jap engined morgan from the early 20's, no shox, no front brakes, chain drive...and it sounded like thunder, he ran sub 40 seconds up the hill most of the way on opposite lock. If you come to the UK try to tie it in with a meet at Shelsey Walsh, the level of machinery you will see is diverse to say the least...at the meeting I was at it went from an F1 car from the previous seasons Formular 1 to a 1913 single seater racer with a home made 4 litre Vtwin with chain drive..and that was driven to the meeting!
