Interesting! That's an aggressive schedule! Good luck!


Are you going to reroute your ventilation? That fuel cell blocks most of it.

Well done mate, it sounds like you're improving all the time. Did you take any video this time ?

I was a bit tongue-in-cheek about the weather comment. In the background there's something like a tent or gazebo that looks a bit like the leaning tower of Pisa so it doesn't look as if it's the weather I always imagine for down there. (sunshine, surf & barbies)

5th run at this event, 4th in the Lotus, 1st time out was in a 1930s Austin 7 single seater.
For the Lotus in class: 2nd, 1st (new record), 1st (new record), 1st (wet/damp/windy/cold.....).
Outright in the Lotus: 16th, =14th, 11th, 6th.
I wanted the hat trick but also wanted to drop a few more tenths from the record, so will have another go next year.
Was about 12-14degC on the day, 27degC and sunny the day prior.....

Actually yes I'm going to cut about 6" off the tank. It's a 17 gal & I really will probably never need that much at any one time. I'm planning on intakes either side of the radiator opening & 3" ducting back. The time table is doable if I keep on it. I'm disabled/retired & can work on it every day. I generally put in 6-8 hrs every day.

Oh, that is looking great! Nice colours. Looking forward to seeing more.
The Twin Cam plays the symphony whilst my right foot conducts the orchestra. At 3800 rpm the Mad Pipe Organ joins in.
