|(5-31-10 From Tam McPartland:
"Tom doesn't remember this (and he should know!) but I have a memory
from 1964 of the Coral appearing at Vaca Valley Raceway in April, 1964
with Walt Maas driving and a Lycoming flat-4 aircraft engine for power.
There was another Lycoming-powered car entered that weekend, a red mid-engined
Special with a 4700cc flat-8 engine. The owner/ driver of that car was
listed in the program as Ron Kessinger.
If you have info on these Lycoming-powered cars in NorCal in 1964:
(5-31-10) From Tom
"Continental and Lycoming
have both produced flat-8 aircraft engines. The Lycoming IO-720 and Continental
series of engines have been in production for several decades."
