|Bill Weichelt used to build cars called Tridents
in Ipswich - real beasts, derivatives of TVRs with Ford V8s... I used to
work with someone who knew him and also Dennis Priddle and "Sexy Rexy" Sluggett.
He told me some tales of wild late night blasts over to Santa Pod in Tridents
and nitro burning Minis. Apparently, all new Tridents were taken to the Pod
to get timing slips, to give to the buyers. He also told me that he helped
out on the Tudor Rose pit crew in the 60s. That reminds me, I must give him
a call and arrange a chinwag over a few pints!
