PS: to give you a idea for the speed of Gordini, Sportsman cars with big V8 are lapping the track at 17 seconds, John with a small 1700cc was turning 17.85 seconds, a very good time for such a engine.

Here you go, Jukka, the guy on top of the car, is Terry,.
John's son who win the championship last year with the R8 Gordini, that John prepare for him.
the other pics is John ,Terry, and the trophy girl next to the Gordini Champion of the 1/2 miles track and 1/4 miles Oval.
