Supercharged 1936 Riley on the rollers

Local vintage specialists Pigsty Racing were here yesterday with a supercharged 1936 Riley. The 1500cc twin cam four cylinder engine has recently received the blower and is gently being tuned to accommodate the forced induction. It is being fed through a pair of SU carburettors who’s needles have been profiled to suit. This car will be back soon for further development and will eventually be running on methanol.
