Welcome to GALPOT Weekley #57 a review of the last seven posts at "Gettin' a li'l psycho on tyres". Lancia Aprilla, Avenue Drivers Club, Queen Sq, Bristol The week started with a meeting of the Avenue Drivers Club at Queen Square in Bristol, where this 1959 Lancia Appia was my car of the day. MG Maestro 1600, Race Retro, Stoneliegh On Tuesday I looked at this MG Maestro 1600 which took part in a thrilling race for pro drivers event at the end of the 1983 season driven by rally ace Tony Pond who came home third with the front passenger door hanging off. Volkswagen Type 2 (T3), Classics at the Castle, Sherbourne Wednesdays post featured the last all new rear engined design from Volkswagen the Type 2 (T3)s which were manufactured between 1979 and 2003. Dodge Challenger R/T 440 Magnum, Yanks and Gary’s 34th Picnic, Shakespeare County Raceway This Plum Crazy Dodge Challenger R/T was the feature of Americana Thursdays post, probably my all time favorite Muscle Car. Ferrari F60, Goodwood Festival of Speed Ferrari Friday featured a Ferrari F60 Formula One car of the type that Kimi Räikkönen used to win the 2009 Belgian Grand Prix his last before winning the recent Abu Dhabi Grand Prix for the Genii team's Lotus branded challenger. Lotus Ford 80, Silverstone Classic Yesterday's post featured the Lotus Ford 80 probably one of the most visually sensual Formula One cars never to win a Grand Prix.
