Here is a great video I came across on YouTube of an Austin Healey racing in a historic race at Zolder.

It's about 5 minutes long and IMO well worth watching. Hopefully you'll enjoy it as much as I did.

From the comments on YouTube I've copied the specs of this 250BHP Healey.

This healey has a triple 45 DCOE weber, over 300 degrees camshaft, reworked alloy head, alloy flywheel, race pistons, steel balanced crank, SCCR gearbox, competition overdrive, six branch OPEN exhaust(hence the noise). Overdrive switch on steeringwheel, fully sorted suspension, LSD, good driver!

What an awesome performer!

It's nice to see such cars being driven as they were meant to be driven :up:

The difference was incredible.

Even though a number of the cars on the track appeared as if they were in a lower class than the Healey, it was still remarkable the way he was passing other cars like they were standing still.
