    Just a couple of pics from last weekend . The 6 of us had a ball racing over the 2 days . Jeremy flew up from Sydney for the weekend to 'JUST WATCH' .The Danglemeir boys towed his car up for him and he ended up the winner with local 'HOON' Ted in the 4 banger being runner up .
    The OBFB car has some engine damage , so when I have her pulled down I'll post more pics.:)

    Nigel,
    Certainly hope the mean green machine engine is not too badly injured.
    Thanks for sharing the pictures.
    Dick and the Barn Job are off to Bakersfield in the morning. I follow on Saturday. Hopefully, we break nothing and Dick gets some good runs in.
    Looks like we will have 5 running Hambsters for the weekend. Should be
    a good time.
    Again, hope your engine is not badly damaged.

    Sure was great to see a six car field and congrats to all for putting on a great show. Well done to Jeremy on the win and to Ted for coming so close. Jeff was very consistent over the weekend but just missed the final because of his 13.49 on 13.50 dial in break out in round 2. So big thanks to the Black Knight racing for towing 3 cars up from Sydney...these guys along with Nigel and Ted are keeping the bracket alive. Great bunch of guys and can't wait to join the ranks real soon.......

    Question: The light green car with yellow wire wheels, looks like it has a laid-over four cylinder engine. Peugeot???? How quick and fast is this car? It says he was runner up....

    First of all I would just like to congratulate jeremy on the win and also everyone for a great weekend.
    To answer Four Bangers question yes it is powered by a Peugeot XC series motor with 99ci capacity.
    The best times i've achieved so far with it are 1.98 sec 60ft , 10.20 1/8 & 16.36 1/4 mile.

    Not meaning to be a pain, but tell me more! What modifications have been done to the little Peugeot? What was it's stock horsepower rating? What does your car weigh (without driver)? I'm very intrigued with the small engine/light weight concept. I really like your car!

    Hi Four Banger the only mods on the Pugster so far are a mild cam,shaved Head & Zoomies headers,i'm still running the stock single barrel Solex carby on it.
    These motors produce about 76-80HP SAE and come standard with double valve springs ,dual row timing chain and a forged steel crank.
    They'll rev to 7000rpm without much modifications ,but i've been limiting mine to about 6000rpm till I fit my twin SU carby setup.
    It's race weight without driver is just under 1200lb's,but with driver please add 270lb's:eek:

    Great photos, I haven't been on line lately so I fallen behind on what has been happening. I met several groups of travelers from down under at the Famoso ANRA event in Aug. and was impressed by the really friendly and cordial people who are involved in our sport. Joe Roseberry HA/GR #48
