is he flying Shamu for good measure?

You can only have attachments in PM’s after you’ve earned a certain level of permission on the server… its a few weeks of checking and a few posts so it will happen naturally with time, just not quickly.

I got around it by just using a free mega upload account (another brand will work) and using a link to the file.


#67

@Lento

Thus a link via PM to a google docs, megaupload, mediafrie… is also acceptable.

Oh ok then time to go wacky then :stuck_out_tongue:

Itchen are formally announcing two entries into the 1952 Corso di Fruinia:

Itchen Mosquito Rennen, being entered into the 800-1399 class, a modified version of our family sedan, with a new engine courtesy of Rennen.

and the Itchen M.52, being entered into the 2200-3299 class, a full-blown race car, entered as a technical exercise to see what our finest craftmanship is capable of. Everything is built in-house, and there are a few radical features.

Both are currently on their way to the New York International Auto Show, where there will be a full reveal, followed by testing in Utah to finalise the suspension settings.

Found in a local newspaper: Three Barricadas will be entering, one works effort based on the new V-8 model, and two older cars entered by privateers.



The 2000MM Berlinetta is based of the two-door V-8 2000, and equipped with the 127hp “MM” specification of its 1997cc OHV V8. Unnecessary weight has been removed, bringing weight down to just under 1000kg and the car has been painted in a classic maroon colour.


The 8c 3000SS was the highlight of Barricada’s pre-war range, equipped with a supercharged 3000cc V8 producing 160hp and riding on a bespoke chassis, lower than the 8c 3000M and 3000S, and featuring independent trailing arm rear suspension with torsion bars. The 3000SS was one of the fastest cars of its era with a top speed over 120mph (150mph in the super aerodynamic 3000LM), and remains frighteningly quick even 15 years later.


#71

There will be an organization-driven car in the -799cc category. To fill this category and incentivize some competition here. In terms of competition, this car is of course excluded from winning any prizes.

A 1949 PMI Polloi Barudion Aero “Corso” with its 450cc inline-3 engine bored out to 615cc, it also weights 615kg, if you also count the driver, the toolbox, a spare wheel, a jerrycan of fuel and food for a day.


#72

Introducing the KMC (Kevin Michaels Creations) 800 Roadster. The 800 Roadster will be competing in the under 800cc class with a very high revving 798cc Boxer 4 engine mounted in the back.
Early development of this car had massive oversteer problems, as well as a less powerful engine. But with many revisions the oversteer has been fixed although near its top speed, and the engine horsepower has increased as well as the RPMs, but it may still become a little unsettled through corners near its top speed, despite Automation saying it understeers.


The car file will be PMed later still deciding if I want to create another car.

Three manufacturers, two continents, one race…

Ardent Motors Racing

Jack Chancellor, CEO of Ardent Motor Corporation, commissioned the construction of two 1952 Ardent Midnights for use in overseas racing. These vehicles were both 300 Special models, with engines that had been given a thorough “massaging” by the Works division of engine manufacturer Toledo Ironworks through special contract. Their rear seats were removed to make room for proper racing safety equipment, and improved tires and brakes were fitted as well.

1400-2200cc Class - 1952 Ardent Midnight 342 Motorsport


The first Midnight, an Ink Black affair bearing the number 342, received a modified version of the stock 99 cubic inch Cygnus 4. Dual carbs improved response and airflow, and significant improvements in the top end were made to utilize this extra flow.

2200-3000cc Class - 1952 Ardent Midnight 362 Motorsport


The second Midnight, Copper Cream in color and numbered 362, took on a heavily modified 173 cubic inch Orion 6 from the larger 400 series family cars. Again, significant top end work was done to achieve greater power and response.

Townsend Coachworks/Toledo Works

3000+cc Class - 1952 Townsend Model 305 Toledo Works


A complete surprise to nearly all in the event, struggling manufacturer Townsend Coachworks brought to bear a modified Model 305 Super coupe, which rode with a number matching its model. Still with most of its luxury interior intact, but with a 305 cubic inch V12 that had been given much attention by the Works department at subsidiary Toledo Ironworks, this car was created as a stunt to showcase both the coach-making skills of Townsend and the capability of Toledo motors. A tactic devised by the board of directors at the behest of the Townsend family estate, this vehicle was designed to attract potential partners for a corporate merger.

Suzume Motor Manufacturing Industries

Suzume brought no production-based vehicles to Fruinia in 1952. Instead, they brought a pair of concept vehicles as test mules for prototype engines. All design was done in-house, and a young engineer by the name of Hideki Akiyama accompanied the race team in order to assist with testing and analysis of the engines.

800-cc Class - Suzume Kaikyu San Ebi Kei Concept


Suzume’s first test into Kei cars was the Kaikyu San Ebi. Its power came from a miniscule 349cc inline-3 motor, and initial testing showed that the power they could get from this engine was substantial… enough to get it up to 100 km/h, at any rate. Suzume’s intent for this event was simple: durability testing.

800-1400cc Class - Suzume Shiso Hyu Concept


An awkward entry for the competition, the Shiso Hyu represented Suzume’s furthered testing of the water in utility-based vehicles. It was also powered by the largest motor Suzume had produced since being split from its parent Zaibatsu, a 1399cc boxer motor. Suzume was hedging their bets a bit with this entry, as a mockup fo the Shiso Roku wasn’t ready yet, but the somewhat uneven roads of Fruinia might be better tackled by a car with higher stance.

Corse Scagliati - #61 1952 Scagliati 265 Veneto Corsa

Origin: Mirano, Italy
Class: 2200-3299cc
Crew: Ettore Mazzanti and TBD

Corse Scagliati will be sending one of their successful 265 Veneto Corsa GT cars to the Corso di Fruinia. Fresh off an encouraging result in the Targa Florio, drivers Ettore Mazzanti and TBD are confident that the Veneto Corsa will be competitive on the Corso, and are excited to take on the challenge of this demanding endurance road race.

Team Medina Rebel-Sovereign - #83 1952 Sovereign 500 Luxe

Origin: White Plains, New York
Class: 3300+
Crew: Warren Young and Herb Dawson

Team Medina Rebel-Sovereign hails from White Plains, New York, home of Medina Rebel-Sovereign, the largest dealer in the United States of Rebel Motors and its luxury subsidiary, Sovereign. Bob Alpert, the owner of the dealership, felt that while the American public was well aware of Sovereign’s opulent luxury and prestige, they didn’t really give any thought to the incredible performance that the Sovereign model line-up had. Having approached Herb Dawson and Warren Young, two accomplished road racers in the area, Alpert struck a deal with the two men to build and run a Sovereign 500 Luxe in the 1952 edition of the Corso di Fruinia, a demanding and grueling endurance road race.

FABEL Motorsport - #26 1952 FABEL Étoile 1400 Super

Origin: Brussels, Belgium
Class: 800-1399cc
Crew: Ruud Kocken and Franck Steunebrink

Fabrication Automobile Belge (FABEL for short) is a success story from the rebuilding of Europe’s shattered economy following the Second World War. Identifying a joint need to build up the country’s heavy industrial base as well as a need for cheap transportation for the country’s population, FABEL was started by the Belgian government with a Marshall Plan grant, and given the mission of motorising Belgium and her neighbours. Their first product, the Étoile line of coupes and sedans, first rolled off the production line in Brussels in 1949. Equipped with a simple boxer engine, four-wheel independent suspension and a spartan but functional cabin, the Étoile has found a following with a burgeoning number of motorsports fans, modifying and tuning their little cars into nimble, budget racers.

Driven by Ruud Kocken and Franck Steunebrink, this Étoile 1400 Super is the very first effort by FABEL’s brand new motorsports team, and it is hoped that the car will help raise the profile of the brand elsewhere in the world running in the Corso di Fruinia.

Below 799cc class:
Private Entry #89 - 1949 Model 10/C “Modifica”

Entered by the wealthy automobile enthusiast Marco de Poloni, this 1949 Epoch Model 10/C “Modifica” has been tweaked and tuned by the famous Fruinian tuning house “Fruiannini Automobili S.p.A”. With an estimated 50% power increase over the stock offering, this little 499cc rocket will be sure to entertain.

800cc - 1399cc class:
Epoch Racing #94 - 1951 Model 10-2A (Race Spec)

The first car that Epoch Racing will be officially entering into the 1952 Corso di Fruinia is the 1951 Model 10-2A, which has been modified for racing. The interior has been stripped out (what little of it there was) and instead of the production 499cc inline-3, a dedicated inline-4 racing engine has been installed. Rumour has it that this 1398cc engine is a cut-down version of the inline-6 engine powering entry #75, and is almost three time as powerful as the powerplant fitted when it left the factory!

1400cc - 2199cc class:
Epoch Racing #75 - 1951 Model 20 (USA Trim) (Race Spec)

In the larger class, Epoch will be competing with the 1951 Model 20 in USA trim. This vehicle will be demonstrating to the world the quality engineering and reliability behind Epoch’s offerings, as the racing team has decided to base their engine on the inline-6 offered in the production car (destroked from 2300cc to 2179cc). Stripped of its usual chrome trimmings, this automobile has the opportunity to either boost or hinder Epoch’s public image greatly.

Above 3300cc class:
Epoch Racing #27 - 1952 RPE 001 (Purpose Built Racing Car)

Last, but not least, is a car that Epoch has managed to keep under wraps until its maiden outing at this event. Built from the ground-up as a dedicated racing vehicle, the “RPE 001” is Epoch’s first attempt at such an undertaking. Whilst understandably the company has been keeping exact specifications and performance figures under wraps, one of their enthusiastic young engineers happened to slip up and confirm that their development benchmark for top speed was a Jaguar XK120… and it blew it out of the water!

Seabeast Motorsports

1952 LMC Spectre RS1400

The LMC’s first car had established the young company as one of the top new luxury brands and used its initial success to help fund a new small sports car. Utilizing a Rennen sourced 1397cc engine, the car would be fully developed in just a year and a half to be released in 1952 until LMC could create a smaller engine of its own. Down-tuned from Rennen’s racing variant for reliability and class restrictions, the RS1400 race car made 129 hp and could reach speeds near the 120 mph mark.

Here’s a little vignette of an RS1400 in action. (Heads-up, this car is loud)

(I will edit this post with more cars if I make any)


#80

The Z1452 (the poshy version of the base Z1152) with the Rally version.


(still unsure if this will be the final car… but still, it looks good)
