Fuji International Speedway August 2019 - Unipower GT #UWF1024

A short clip of chassis UWF1024 that I bought from the late Geoff Monty in 1976 and much later in 1991, sold it to its current owner in Japan who takes it to many Classic Car events such as this at the Fuji International Speedway. Whilst a very late UWF car, it sits on early Cosmic Mk1 alloy wheels. Still fitted with the very special 1480cc Cooper 'S' that I had built up using the Weslake, very short-skirt pistons that Geoff sold to me. Their fitment required the cylinders to be bored with considerable off-set in the block, to maximise the gaps between the bores for the head gasket to function correctly. He had always wanted to see if these pistons would work in an 'A' Series engine and given the few thousand miles I drove in that car, they did indeed work well.
