Kames test day 4th March '07


A lot of effort was required to get there, but eventually we arrived at Kames for the season's only day of testing.  A bit of a shame then that the weather didn't play.  It was freezing cold, damp in the morning and wet in the afternoon.  We got enough running in to establish that the new clutch and gearbox are working as expected, and to get some provisional settings on the dampers.  I guess we'll just have to wait and see how things go when we come back for the first event.

 

With the engine back a couple of inches, there's only just enough room for the hydraulics AND the airfilter

After a couple of runs, the exhaust was starting to singe the paintwork. Stephen improvised a deflector!

The engine enjoys breathing through its new exhaust system

Unloaded from its trailer, the car awaits the scrutineers...

New springs dampers and wider track front wishbones will cure tight corner understeer. We hope.

Another look at the engine.
