Following on from building the car in a few evenings some problems we faced re-occurred to make this round more of a test session than a race. Michael qualified 6th out of 19 after 10 laps which was not bad considering the car had a major handling issue and we hadn’t tested the car until that session. Unfortunately the clutch failed in qualifying and we did not get this fixed for race 1. Race 2 we started right at the back but with a hampered car Michael failed to make progress.
The main issue with the car which we could not address was the lack of rear droop. The speed at which the car was re-assembled meant we had to assume the spare dampers fitted. Sadly they did not allow for any droop in the rear suspension which badly affected traction out of corners.
