Ogle SX1000 at Spa

A particularly good looking and quick Ogle SX1000 could be seen last weekend during the races at the Spa-Francorchamps circuit in Belgium. The car has recently been fully restored and has been built up as an Appendix K racer. It was raced at Spa by owner Mark Burnett and Nick Swift of Swiftune fame. The car topped 185.9 km/h on the straight but I couldn't figure out where it finished as the results are somewhat unclear to me. Great job never the less!

Almost ready to go. The Ogle SX1000 is a recent restoration and is now being raced
