Healeys testing on Airfield

That feeling of the 50's recreated.
Testing was good as the high altitude changes the setting quite a bit

The Austin-Healey Team and the enthusiasts around were able to see some car testing in the Endurance Car at the local Wendover Airfield. The combination of local contacts, an outspoken Team Manager and an airline Pilot Healey driver made this possible. As we were not able to go on the salt today we thought seeing one car in action was the thing to do spontaneously.

In the true spirit of a Revival, before going on the salt Airfield testing was done. We can barely believe how all coincidences fall together.

As we go along more surprises will come up. We will keep you posted. Pictures of the airfield testing will be posted soon.

A huge turnout has shown up and is preparing itself for the Wendover Revival. We will have 3 "Originals" out there who were there in the fifties : Roy Jackson-Moore, John Beazley and Gordon Whitby, completed by Ron Christensen and the 2009 Healeys return to Bonneville Team.
