Santa Pod " Main Event"

First round Fia Championship

We had a great couple of days at the Main Event with ups and downs. First thing, the weather: lot's of sun and not a drop of rain during the whole weekend. This is one of the most important elements we need for racing, and very much wanted at Santa Pod after the bad weather we had the last few years.

On Thursday we tested the car at the Pro Peak Performance Day to find a set-up. On Friday our class didn't race so we did a complete check-up.
Qualifying started on Saturday with a first run where Danny had to drive through shake. In second qualifying Danny took a good start, 0,9632 to sixty feet and a new Personal Best of 5,8104 sec. and 249,59 MPH. This gave the team good hopes for the rest of the weekend.

On Sunday under a blue sky and lots of sun, qualifying went on. In our first outing of the day wheel spin, tyre shake but still a 5,976. The last qualifying round was just fantastic. A great performance resulting in Danny's first 5,7. Well done!! 0,9720 to sixty feet and 5,7944 at the finishline with a speed of 253,57 MPH, which is a European Speed Record.

Unfortunately we couldn't back up this record. But this couldn't spoil the party. The team was very happy and had a great reward for all the hard work that had been done. We are certainly moving the right way.

On Monday we started eliminations as second qualifyer. We were paired up against Stephanie Milam. Danny had a good sixty feet time of 0,9908 but unfortunately Danny lost second gear and Stephanie beat Danny on the finishline with only 0,02 seconds. This meant the end of the first race of the 2009 season for us. A bit disapointed, but in the end we are very satisfied with the improvements we made so far. We are now going to prepare the car to leave for Alastaro, Finland in the beginning of July.
