WITTMAN “WITT’S VEE”



STANDARD DATA: Gross wt. 700. Empty wt. 430. Fuel capacity 10. Wingspan 166". Length 182".
PERFORMANCE: Top mph 170. Cruise mph 150. Stall mph 48. Climb rate 1,000. Takeoff run 800. Range 400.

The real bomb in the Formula VEE circuit is Steve Wittman’s Witt’s V. The amazing thing about this racing ship is its speed. Wittman has had it up to 170 mph (not quite supersonic, but three miles a minute). Wittman made “Bonzo” a household word back in the Goodyear Racedays.
