Sprite with Modified Wings to help Engine Cooling

Chipping Campden Vintage and Classic Car Show, 12th June 2005

 

This Sprite has had a homemade (but very well executed) modification to the wings to allow extra airflow through the engine bay and help engine cooling. The vents are based on those added to competition big Healeys and I am told they are very effective.

Once again I only had my phone when I met an unusual Spridget in Chipping Campden, so apologies for the poor picture quality.
Any better quality pictures gratefully received

And here is a similar idea seen on a Midget at MGCC Silverstone, June 25th, 2006
