Taken at Malibu Raceways, in Beaverton Oregon, just days before it's closure.. Back when I started driving there, in the 80's, Malibu Grand Prix had a "winners circle" program. You had to get a 52.99 second or better time around the track, and if you did, and it was witnessed by a manager, you were awarded "Winner's Circle" status. You got a different drivers licence, and you got to drive the 'special' car. This car had a two-strike motor, and was chassis tuned better. The Winners Circle car could, in the right hands get times under 50 seconds. Lap record, as I recall, is somewhere in the 48 second range. Back then, after a few years of practice, I got into the Winners Circle. My best time in the "faster" car, was, as I recall, 50.2 seconds around the track. Since that time, I got older...

Malibu Grand Prix cars ($15,000 each) at the Anaheim, California location. Locations throughout the USA in mid 1970s to early/mid 1990s. Fun drive, acceleration on the slow side on this 28 h.p. motor version, however would not be for a novice driver. Car displayed great handling and braking characteristics. Video shot in the Fall of 1980. A glimpse back in history. Interest to the vintage kart racer. Believe to be Virage chassis, powered by Fichtel & Sachs wankel motor.
