    Red face

    Chasewater,UK 1979. The OZ class UIM European Championship race.

    This was an interesting race (I was there racing OE) and Billy Seebold was not allowed to race his Seebold/Long John/Merc T4.
    Not because he was an American but Billy did not have a UIM license.
    (A feud between APBA and UIM)
    So Team Mercury put Roger Jenkins in the big bore Merc T4 Seebold-boat and race number 9 instead of 7.
    Tom Percival drove the other Seebold/Long John/Merc T4.
    At the end of the weekend Bob Spalding in his #11 Velden/Carlsberg/Johnson V6 RS
    3 liter looper fuel injection was the big winner.
    Beating the big bore Merc T4 and Team OMC was extremely happy.

    This is another fact the Merc boys don't remember..but this little Swede does..

    Embassy GP, Bristol 1980

    Bristol 1980
    ..was another big setback for Team Mercury and the T4 racing.

    This is the headline:
    No Gold at Mercury’s Final Rally.. Evinrude/Molinari wins in Bristol 1980
    Seebold breaks down in last lap forfeiting win to Molinari.



    Many Merc supporters always bring up Bristol 1982 when Billy Seebold won the OZ class with a smaller Merc V6 over the V8 drivers.
    As always I was there and Renato Molinari was leading by a lot over Billy Seebold but broke down at the end and Seebold won..Yes I know you must finish to win..

    Back to Bristol 1980 and Billy Seebold was leading the OZ class with the big bore T4 but broke down and Renato Molinari ended up winning the race with the smaller 3 liter looper fuel injection. So please remember this Merc fans when bringing up Bristol 1982.
    Bristol 1980 was also Team Mercury's last race for the T4 in the OZ class at that time. I am 100% sure the reason for Team Mercury to pull the plug on the T4 racing was the rumors was already out about OMC introducing the new V8 for the OZ class 1981. Team Mercury was now going to race ON max 2 liter and call the ON class Formula One.
    (Merc came back with a modified T4 in the OZ class 1984)

    Here is a link to exactly what happen in Bristol 1980 and the OMC advertising after the race. "Evinrude staying-power wins Embassy Grand Prix" Pretty funny..!!

    Hope you don't mind, but I enlarged this a bit. If you are like me, the fine print can get a little challenging...

    Another setback for Team Mercury.
    Bob Spalding and Ken Stevenson drove the #201 OZ class Velden/Johnson V6 3 liter looper to victory. Beating the Merc/Mariner big bore T4.
    Another victory for Team OMC with poor enginering according the Mercury supporters.

    Real shame they didnt use that engine as the consumer engine or even as a performance model

    Well..OMC made a few good production V6 loopers. The 60 degree 2.7 liters is one of the best ever.

    Yes but not in 76
    Very sorry that they never had hp range with fuel injection on 90 degree loopers to compete with mercs when they had them first.
    The guy that built the cfi for omc now does the F1 boxes for Merc
    I guess we did end up with the etec and thats the best 2 stroke system anywhere.
    Wish we could retro fit it

    Paris 6 Hours 1979.
    More OMC victories over the Merc T4.


    This was the largest factory battle of the year.
    Three boats rigged with the big bore V6 -T4 from Team Mercury.
    OMC used their 3 liter V6 looper fuel injection and the result couldent get any better.
    Cees van der Velden/Tom Posey won in the #4 Velden/Johnson RS 3 liter.. leading 181 laps of the 185 he won with.
    Second was Renato Molinari/Barry Woods in the #3 Molinari/Evinrude CCC 3 liter 184 laps.
    No Merc T4 finished the race.
    How do I know this:
    I was there racing the OE/F3 class and finished third with our Sjoberg/Evinrude CC
