Shane Vanzetti – Part 1

Shane Vanzetti – Part 1

on 01/01/1970
  After 15 years of building this car, Moora farmer SHANE VANZETTI  (and family) have finally finished it! “In 2002 my Dad Michael and I went to watch the racing around the houses in Northam,” Shane recalled.    “We said we need to do that.     “So we found a car in the quokka for $1800 and stripped it bare for a full restoration.     We had lots of GT parts that went straight into it.     Tyler Vanzetti piloted the XY last month around the streets and foreshore of Dennison and kept her out of the bales of hay and the sea.     She was only running the little 302 V8.     But later on we plan to build a fire-breathing 351, running quad Webbers . “Many people have made this dream come true including Michael Vanzetti, Grant O’Brien and his team at M & S O’Brien, Ryan Brown, Colin Blee, Gye Smith and Shuba Johns at Moora Auto Pro, Ian Bell, Paul Rumbold of Rumbold Ford,  and Superoo Falcon Spares.      I sure hope I didn’t forget anyone.”

   Thank you all!

“I’m so proud of my boys.    They performed beautifully at Moora Speedway’s first meeting of the new season.     In his first drive in  a street stock Falcon for many years, Jordan Vanzetti drove a fantastic race from the rear of the field, learning his new car and kept awesome lines.     Taj stepped up into the missile – current WA 2 car driven by Kooper Greig in the state title in Bunbury earlier this year – and progressed well with extra power.     We thought the event might not go past half time as the grader and roller got bogged !     A big thank you to grandad Michael Vanzetti for investing so much time into getting Jordan’s car ready.
