Datsun Ace hits the Big League !

Datsun 240Z driver & Gurston regular Ben Stapley has acquired a Pilbeam MP72 for use in the unlimited single-seater class.

Ben had no plans to move classes but the opportunity to buy the ex. Davison/Toet car, which was used from new by Andy Kittle (aka. The Belfast Tourist Board) cropped up and he couldn’t say no !!

Ben said: “I now have a big pile of bits and a lot of work to do! The car hasn’t run for a long time and there is plenty that needs doing to get it back on track. I still have plenty I want to achieve with the Datsun, but this is a nice distraction.”

The car will hopefully be out in early 2012 running with a 5-litre Rover V8 engine initially.
