The Fastest MG In North American Road Racing: Les Gonda's 1973 MGB-GT

The Ford 302-powered MGB-GT we saw a couple months ago looked pretty good, but we want to see some V8 MGBs tearing up the race track! As if on cue, the not-so-sane folks over at BritishV8.org are back with an exhaustively detailed story on the '73 MGB-GT V8 that's beating up on Porsches in SVRA's Group 8, A-production class. No Malaise Era 62.5 horsepower B engine here; instead, there's a 13.5:1 compression, quad-Webered, 3.5 liter Rover V8, and it just keeps getting better from there. Make the jump to check out the photos and read the whole article.
