Zappa Racing operates out of a 5,000 square foot shop located in the heart of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania with machining fabricating facilities.


We handle vintage spares for MG's, Jag's, TVR's and other British marques.  We specialize in MGB, TVR, Triumphs (TR-250 and TR-6), and various makes of race cars.



About Us


I founded Zappa Racing in the late 1960's, but it was put on hold due to a major commitment -- my wife!  After the kids and all the growing pains of parenthood, my son convinced me to start up again.  In 1989, Zappa Racing was rekindled and a growth pattern developed.


The Fighting Bee was added to all Zappa Racing race cars in honor of my wife, Beth, who is called B.  Beth fought cancer -- and beat it!


Racing actively in SVRA, VSCCA and VRG.  We campaign a 1962 MGB competing in Group 3 and a 1969 TVR Tuscan competing in SVRA Group 8.
