2006 Car Arrives

This week saw the first track test in the 2006 race car, a 1973 V8 with a successful history. The test took place at Snetterton on a damp morning and a very wet afternoon.The test sessions were interrupted bya number of red flags caused by other people leaving the track, but this first shakedown went well with a best lap of 1 minute 18 seconds.
(Last years car was averaging appox1 minute 23 seconds) Whilst the car ran quite well it had one or two minor glitches, so overall an encouraging first outing.
