Summit Racing/Factory Five Mk4 Roadster Now Appearing on Hot Rod Unlimited Video
We're in the movies! Well, our The Summit Racing/Factory Five Mk4 Roadster project car is--it has a starring role in a new video now available on Hot Rod Unlimited, part of Motor Trend Magazine’s YouTube channel.
The video covers a Hot Rod Magazine test session of three Factory Five cars conducted at Las Vegas Motor Speedway this past January. The editors tested the Summit Racing Mk4 at the facility’s drag strip (The Strip) along with three other Factory Five cars: another Mk4 Roadster, a Daytona Coupe, and a ’33 Hot Rod. Hot Rod also pitted three of the Factory Five cars against a Lamborghini Gallardo on a nearby road course, courtesy of Exotics Racing. A story on the test session will be featured in an issue of Hot Rod Magazine later this year.
Three of the Factory Five cars, including the Summit Racing Mk4 Roadster, were also subjects of performance testing on Modified Mustangs and Fords Magazine’s Dynojet chassis dyno. Each car features a drivetrain combination—a 427 cubic inch Ford Windsor, a 306 cubic inch small block Ford, and a Ford Racing 5.0L ‘Coyote’—now available at Summit Racing. The test sessions will be featured in the June 2013 issue of Modified Mustangs and Fords.
