Jacobs developing rare Fiat 124 racer
Experienced racer Ian Jacobs has developed a rare Fiat 124 Spider for use in the Historic Road Sports Championship.
Jacobs, who has raced and won in a wide variety of cars including single-seaters, bought the Fiat at Christmas as a project. “It had sat unused for 12 years as a road car,” he said.
It was finished just in time for a debut run at Silverstone last month when teething problems included windscreen wiper failure in heavy rain, gearbox issues and a sticking throttle.
Jacobs also says that the handling needs some work but hopes it will be competitive.
