lightweight V8s were a cost-effective way to add horsepower and reliability

Rod Carveth drove this

race. One got the impression Wang was using this weekend as a test
session for the big upcoming "Ferrari Year" at the
Monterey Historics, August 13-14-15, 2004.
|Historian David Seielstad comments on
Tony Wang's 330P is 0810. Started life
