Rebuild January

Rebuild progress

It already has been a very busy start to the new year with the upcoming race season looming. This season the team will be renting Guy and Linda Warren’s Porsche 924 making this a 4 car team!

With the bad luck at Anglesey, the quick replacement “road engine” needs to be rebuilt for the Porsche 924 and with the engine being on its last legs a new engine is being built for Jason’s GTE.

Progress is going quickly, the nova engine is rebuilt and the car rewired and the Porsche engine is near completion. The warrens car has had its setup adjusted and will be wrapped next month.
