I have built this as both a road and TROG (The Race of Gentlemen Sand/beach race) car.

So with fenders/wings and windscreen for the road............

And as an old-timers beach racer (TROG)......Fenders and windscreen removed and a tonneau cover over the passenger seat.................

Boy, the stuff I don't know never ceases to amaze me...

I hadn't heard of TROG, the website is awesome. 

I love the model, great story too.

Cheers GMorrison, but there's even more stuff out there that most of us don't know about, we learn something new every day!

It's cool ! From a practcal standpoint that engine must love to eat sand though ( air filters ?).

Very cool Pat.  I recall reading somewhere about beach racing in California.  Must be a fun experience without paddles on!

Thanks,

John

Yes about the lack of air filters. keavdog, yes I've seen youtube video's of TROG races on the sand at various venues throughout the USA.

Remember when Daytona Nascar ran the track and the beach back when they got started?

Nice two for one on that one.
