Tappet Clatter: September 2023

September 2023

While the Revs Institute is still closed, we present the first Tappet Clatter of the season. The cars and staff have been very busy this summer so we have articles on Le Mans’ 100th anniversary, the Monterey Historics, Pebble Beach and more. History on the road and on track! A new collection car, the 1961 Alfa Romeo SZ, is explained. If you ever wondered how racing cars grew wings, we have a comprehensive investigation in this issue. Included is more Tappet Trivia and the winner of May’s contest question. Tappet Tech explains the history of treaded and slick tires in racing.
