Phakisa Results

Postby MPS-T33 » Sun Aug 15, 2010 10:02 am

What a great weekend for the team.We improved in every practice session finding more pace with small changes.I was a bit dissapointed with qualifying 7th the car did not feel as good as it did on friday.Race 1 and 2 I still had a balance problem so I was happy with 4th and a 3rd.We went through the whole car and found that there was no Gas pressure in the left front damper we fixed that and the balance was much better.The 3rd race the car was good enough for 3rd just could not stay with the front 2 and made sure I brought it home in 3rd again keeping one of the fords behind me for the whole race.I am looking forward to Zwartkops our home base where we won last year.Thanks for all the support!

T34 has been a BIT of a problem child had the engine in and out 3 time in the last 10 days before the race with various problems (leaking valves, crank pulley,unwanted sharp edges in combustion chamber)We finally had his car sorted on Thursday night with good power and everything 100%.
He went out and did some instalation laps and he told me evrything was great He went out again and I was behind him and bang!!!
Looks like one of the pistons had failed why we wont know until we strip it tomorrow.We were all gutted.My engine has been running 100% since before Kyalami and done close to 100 laps.
We did not have a spare engine ready due to some part supply problems from the factory.George is a great teamate and did not get negative but supported me for the rest of the weekend.
George and I are looking forward Zwartkops we won there last year and I and George are going to try and repeat it again.
We hope to see you all at Zwartkops!!!!!
