Stuart Grants Rocco

January 14th, 2010 | No Comments »

Our buddy Stuart owns one of the cleanest examples of a Mk1 Scirocco we have seen, and he recently sent through some updated pic of it. Despite being a very clean example he isn’t afraid to give it horns. here is what he had to say about the car.

“Some pics of my Scirocco at the Kyalami 9-Hour Retro (5 Dec). I lent it to Mark Smyth of Business Day, he raced it in 2 x 10 lap sprints and a 1-Hour. A bit of body roll but a blast!!!

Car is standard – except for some H&R Springs, 14-Inch wheels, slightly warmed cam and a bolt in roll cage – i still drive it daily but will race it at Zwartkops on 30 January and then take part in the Historic Racing Car championship through the year (www.historicracing.co.za). There are about five other Sciroccos racing – mine being the most standard, then varying ‘hotness’ up to a seriously quick Jegermeister replica (complete with flared arches, slick etc.)”

Stuart also has one of the best motoring blogs out there www.thefloatchamber.co.za. Its quality writing for true motoring enthusiasts, so make sure you check it out.
