Drachten 1

Rain in Spain but also in Drachten. Three days rain and we could make only make one run. After 150 mtr the Turbo came in and I lost grip and had to slow down.  But most important was that the 60ft time was 1.43 and that is pretty good (only 4.000 rpm), especially because we did not even use launch control to spin up the turbo at the start. We planned to set up launch control, but after the first run it started raining and it did not stop.

I could also test the brakes and they work. Also the changing of the cooling system seems to work. After all, we are not unsatisfied.

In 2012 I raced against Frank’s Fiero and he hit the guardrail and he had to rebuild his Fiero last winter. After repair he started against me again in the first race this year: and yes he hit the guardrail again. This time with only some small scratches on the paint. See the difference between the pics.

Because of the rain we had time to do other activities: modifying our team bike into a kind of fixed bike.
