↑ The GT Challenge class is far the most exciting class to compete with, all the race vehicles are the super fast cup cars such as Ferrari Challenge, 997 cup cars, Lambo, SLS, etc. Yet, the class is break down the GT open, GT class A, B, and so forth. The Radical is group to GT Open class to the fastest race cars around.
↑ Over the weekend, we were battling with handling issues, which were understeer in slow speed entry and mid corners. However, Stan managed to made the pole position in the GT Challenge group. There were good drivers and fast race cars in the group, yet battling the handling problem, the Radical took a hard spin at a hairpin turn.
↑ On Friday morning practice session, the mechanic found the cause of the handling issue. The blame was the left shock high-speed compression was stuck unable to make adjustments. Few tweaks and adjuster broke. (the high-speed compression setting was set overnight at full soft)
↑ Round 1 Saturday race we had shifting problems and found a faulty air pump hose fitting that was cracked with pressure leakage which prevent delivering adequate pressure to activate the shifting mechanism.
↑ The engine further experienced difficulties to fired up and stalled few occasions. The crew found the cause were the spark plugs where the electrodes have worn beyond the acceptable plug gap. New spark plugs were replaced.
See you at next race!
