G'day Challengers

After receiving the Fast 8 Bugs history the other day Steve Madoski wrote wondering what the Fast 8 Ghia's were. Good question and here is what I found in my research. This is the list of the eight fastest production bodied land speed racing Karmann Ghia's over the past five decades. Production bodied means no aerodynamic assists such as wings or spoilers to aid stability.


1987 Larry Monreal.................68 Ghia 1915cc Turbo......167.480 mph
Bob Godfrey Car Craft motor
5 Speed transaxle



1976 Ray Filteau/John Weston..64 Ghia 1900cc Turbo......152.372 mph



2012 Tom Simon/Britt Grannis..70 Ghia 2332cc Carb.......150.343 mph
Hart/Adragna Motor




2013 Zach/Talor Burns.............74 Ghia 2012cc Carb......146.909 mph


1979 Mike Manghelli/Brehm......56 Ghia 1980cc Carb......144.00 mph
Sorry, no photo's available in Production trim with bumpers!



2006 Rick McLean/Boelcke........68 Ghia 1967cc Carb......140.417 mph



1969 Al Nichols/Veldman..........56 Ghia 1900cc Carb......134.32 mph
Note: Front air scoops were allowed in SCTA Production in 1969




2013 Tom Bruch/Anderson.......69 Ghia 1378cc Turbo....128.939 mph




Get ready for World of Speed in September. Gonna be fun.........................
