New for 2011 was the latest version of our infamous Twin Spark engine, now with modified piston and rod geometry. New power figure 216BHP with 180 lb/ft torque, giving the car a power to weight ratio of 240BHP/tonne! Very little else changed on the car during this period, proving just how good the package is. Spa and Nurburgring trackdays during these 3 years showed the car was more than a match for any BMW M3 CSL or Porsche 911, including GT3! New HD video cameras installed in both Max’s and Andrew’s cars allowed us to show real time just how fast we had made the cars.
At Spa a laptime of 3:02.00 was set and at the Nurburgring a laptime of 8:15.70 was achieved bridge to gantry, truly impressive lap times!
However, come mid 2013 we had now developed a package or carbonfibre boot, bonnet & doors as well as many other tweaks not installed on Max’s car. Thus as quick as the car already was at this point, there was now a new range of possibilities with regard to weight reduction to improve track performance and a rebuild is required… watch this space!
