Ah...that's what I thought at first glance too. Lurking behind that alloy plate are a pair of Weber 45s! Some very tasty stuff in there including a Quaife gearbox!
That's Clive H's car. It's a class 3 <1701cc Modified. Running a tuned x-flow on 45 DCOE's and a Quaife close ratio Gear-set. Very nice 130-140bhp ish. In a very light car. Clive is a quick driver as well.
There are some pretty radical cars around.... Did you spot the V6 4/4 that was there? Or the Duratec 2.0 on GSXR mikuni carbs in a Rutherford Lightweight!
