Check out PowerBlock May 12 & 13 as Courtney welcomes Tom Edwards and his very rare 1924 Hispano Suiza Roadster. This wood body torpedo was built by World War 1 aircraft engine manufacturer Hispano Suiza. After the war they built 12 of these wood bodied race cars- only 3 remain today! The body is made out of Mahogany and weighs only 166 lbs. It’s powered by an in-line 8 that makes about 130 horsepower. The underneath is completely wrapped in copper for better aerodynamics. Watch Tom pilot this 88 year old race car around the Fairgrounds Speedway Nashville track on PowerBlock May 12 & 13. For more racing go to FairgroundsSpeedwayNashville.com
