This seriously fast and successful MGB Roadster is light, well-handling and enormously fun to drive. the car has turned a 2.52 at Sepang F1 Circuit 2002 (Porsche 911 turns 2.45). The owner is changing classes and that is reason for sale. The body was painted, the car was lightened and suspension modified and rebuilt prior to 2002 season.The current engine is a Cross Flow, using an original HRG Derrington head, Carrillo Rods, Alloy flywheel and backplate, roller rockers, gear-reduction starter and all other possible goodies. A spare,Peter Burgess & FIA legal, engine can also be included, towards a small fee.

History

The car was purchased in the UK and imported to Hong Kong as an import in 1966. The car was mildly race prepared by its original owner John Peacock for the Macau GP Racing. The car was also used as a daily driver at the same time. The car was exclusively used for racing since the mid '80's first with Mr. Peacock and then with Mr. Nigel Kat. Extensive modifications were carried out by Demon Tweaks UK to body, suspension etc. The spare engine was built in 1996 by Peter Burgess (author of "how to Powertune MG's" using completely modified 18G (stronger) block & 18V Burgess ported head. The PB enigne is dynoed at 124 bhp. The crossflow has not been dynoed, but a conservative estimate would be at 150bhp. The car was the winner of HK Classic, Car Club Class A Championship in 1998 and again last year in 2002.
