1997 Season

1997 Season

This was my first season with my own car. It was still very under developed as was the driver!
The rear springs were 300lb/in and the front was tried with 350lb/in springs.
The Ford Type 9 (Capri) gearbox with Quaife internals was allowed by the CSCC as the ratios are identical to the Mazda Competition box and the standard unit would explode!

The car is geared @9,000rpm for 185kph (115mph) in 4th, 212kph (132mph) in 5th.

The speed of the car in a straight line made up for my inability through the corners!
