Santa Pod Eurofinals

We had a fantastic weekend in the UK at the Eurofinals. New PB, with 9.05@250kmh (155 mph) and also new PW (personal worst) with a reaction time of 14 secs! Bump Box worked well, but you have to get used to it. We had no time to seriously try to get into the 8 secs. But should not be a big problem: we can give it a bit more boost (we have left!) at the beginning of the run and that should result in lower 60ft times.

It was great fun, also because the Taunus got lots of compliment As the Taunus was never sold in the UK most people did not know the model, but they liked it very much.

At the end a very successful weekend!

Before we went we did some testing at home:

First testing.

This weekend we did 4 demo runs at a non prepared regular racetrack during the American Day Festival.

1st run was bad, cold track, cold tires etc. Second better and then the 4th run was real good. But no time slips because the timing equipment did not work. But it felt and it looks very fast. Watch the vid.

Preparing for next weekend.

Next week we will give a demo at the American day festival in Zandvoort. We use that to do some testing. Hopefully the setup change of the 4-link will work.

We also started the engine for the first time this year, and no problem. click, start….
