Our goal is to develop good driving skills and excellent racing techniques. All members of the Team will be offered the opportunity to participate in the races on a result basis.
The deciding factor for participation is not only the actual racing, but also strategy, pit stop management, change of drivers / fuelling, the balanced choice of engine power output, drive-line and choice of tires. It’s important to keep within the limits of material strength and driver capability.
Our first season in Endurance Racing resulted in a promising 7th place out of 40 competitors.
Pit Stop management turned out well and inspired the team members to take on 2 cars.
Second semester, 2006 developed further skill in fuelling and changing parts.
Car No. 8 was running almost free of any mechanical problem until the 6th and last Race when a steering arm was broken and we lost 15 minutes, resulting in a well deserved 5th place instead of a 3rd. This shows how tight this Racing series is.
Car No. 80 started of with a 4th place in the first Race but after that the problems started and only 4 Races were finished which resulted in a 13th place out of 43 competitors.
The Team has performed well overall and everyone (Clas, Mattias, Micke, Henke & Nicke) has contributed to make the Team professional and developed Team spirit.
The sponsors (Kenneth, Pieter & Ulf) have had the possibility to develop driving skills and experience for tight Racing.
This winter proved to be a great challenge for the members in terms of accomplishing further development of one new car, No 8 and upgrade of car No. 80 before the first start of the season on 18th of May 2007. New No. 8 will be white and is a Coupé instead of a Targa which means some 200 pound lighter. The 2 cars will be “Black, No 80 & White, No 8” and develop 225 bhp and 200 bhp (Beams) respectively.
The Team will go for it 2007 and has set a goal of finishing within the 5 best cars at each Race.
