Tappet Clatter: October 2023

October 2023

In this October issue of the Tappet Clatter, there will be no pumpkin spice added to any articles but we are all anticipating Revs Institute’s reopening October 3rd. We have a report on the first Members Meeting of the year for those Volunteers that could not attend. Also the latest news from the Goodwood Festival of speed. Articles include a reprint of the history of two prancing horses. Also a deep dive into the first Porsche 911 to win a road race and a companion article on its next owner. If you’ve ever wondered what those flags you see waved by race control, they are explained this month. Tappet Trivia features questions on the Ferrari 250 LM. Tappet Tech compares magneto and battery-coil ignition systems.
