Silverdale 1962: Greg set the class and sedan record at this event!
Catilina Park 1963
Here are a few words from the man himself:
"When the 40hp engine was released here I promptly traded my 1960, 36hp beetle in on a 1961 model. In exchange for some body work (my trade)
on Jack Bono's race car - a 356 Porsche - Jack 'worked over' my 40hp engine. He fitted bigger valves, ported & polished the heads, bored barrels
out to 80mm (1300cc), ground cam, fitted bigger oil pump, etc.
I fabricated inlet & exhaust systems, and fitted a pair of 1 3/4" SU carbs. It showed 72 hp on the dyno! It clocked 102 MPH at Bathurst!
That little Beetle gave me excellent service, a few race wins and records, and great pleasure for almost 40,000 miles - it was not only my race car, but my only car!"
