The winter rebuilds are in full swing. Joe and Ben at Hart power are working hard to get the new engine/turbo/restrictor sorted for the Escort. This year we have been pegged back even further with a 50 mm restrictor, which is requiring a lot of thought to resolve. Everything was stripped off the car straight after Mallory Park. The calipers have been checked and re-sealed at Techcraft, the gearbox went back to Quaife for a check over, the body panels have been repaired and painted by Luke at Chappell Coachworks. The prop shafts have been balanced and checked at JW Engineering and Phil Stewart has checked the front differential.
Meanwhile the Honda Integra has been worked on as well. Dave at Boss Racing has stripped and checked the engine. Glen at GTS has sorted out the gearbox problem, whilst Mark at Brise has found an issue with the alternator. Could this be the cause of last yearís problems? The engine is now back in the Honda so it wonít be long before we are out testing, although the ECU will need to be programmed first.
Our first meeting is at Brands Hatch on March 25/26, so not long to go now. Just one more win and we hit 600!
