Mdina GP Malta 2016

You may remember my old 240Z won this event outright in 2013.

Anyway the owner Zac Matten asked me to source him another car because he liked Zs so much. I found him a 260Z in Yorkshire (unfinished project of a Z Club member).

He later lost his job and sold some cars (including my old 240) but kept the project.

Well this year he won the Saturday race which is for 'standard' cars. The engine is not standard but the rest of the car is. I think it had a Janspeed head and cam, exhaust and triples.

From a media report:

During this awards gala—attended by over 60 local and foreign drivers as well as a contingent of foreign press from motorsport and travel publications Chairman of the Malta Tourism Authority Dr. Gavin Gulia presented a trophy to the Saturday Overall (Standard Cars Category) winner Zac Matten, driver of a 1974 Datsun 260 Z.
