long history as an SCCA regional racer, converted for vintage racing durign the 1980s, race extensively and successfully with the VSCCA. . . . .
5 hours on a professionally rebuilt, highly modified 948cc BMC race engine.

A GREAT little race car. . fast, competititve in its class, a great history, easy to drive, and a snap to repair and maintain.
Just consider this. . . only 670 Turners were ever built YET you could take a beat up SCCA H Production Sprite (rolled into a ball against an FIA barrier) and use every single part in this rare Tunrer. Which has the advtange of a better chassis, better location of the back axle, much lighter, and, well, a neat car.
A small fortune went into the preparation and the result is a ready to race vintage racer.
Competitive lap times? Have seen an identical car with similar level of prep work turn 1:08 at Lime Rock and, hey, 1:08 for a drum braked, 948cc production vintage racer is FLYING. Especially when you consider that for a long time, maybe 30 years ago, the out and out vintage record at Lime Rock was 1:06 in a Cooper Formula 1 car.
A wonderful entry into vintage racing and in a car that has been a compettiive racer for 52 years.
