Sorry, didn`t have time to report on the shake down..
Sadly there was a little problem with the ventilationpipe off the fueltank.. so there was some fuel-loss in the corners and race-control took me off the track.. Little problem but by the time it was fixed time was up...

First race last of the grid, but a good start considering I had only done 4 laps in the car earlier ..

But after a few laps disaster struck..I lost power in the high rpm, so came in. After a check a valveclaerance plate was found on cyl 4 that was in half.. The engine took 8000rpm, was very willing but a little too much, and I didn`t have good shifting points, the gearing is too short. So we will fix the valve damage, put in harder valve springs, and put on a longer final drive. Hope to test on 2 november again. And some other little things to attand to, but these are the main problems for now.

Although I only did about 8 laps in total we learned a lot about the car, the engine has tremendous potential.
