Santa Pod "Main Event"

First round of the FIA European championship 2011

Season 2011 started with the first round of the FIA European Championship in Santa Pod, England. Danny's Racing Team was planned to make some testruns on Thursday, but unfortunately it rained, so racing was impossible. On Saturday qualification began. It was very windy but dry. On the first run Danny went into stage
but couldn't hold the car any longer and left before the tree was activated. No time for him. But it looked like a real nice run... 
The second pass in the afternoon showed a nice launch and Danny got off the pedal before the finishline.
Still a 5,90 sec. The team was very happy with the time after all the problems we had last year.
Saturday evening the team made some minor changes and did a full inspection on the car.
On Sunday it was still very windy and in his first outing of the day Danny made a great run.
0.952 to sixty feet and 3.810 to the eighth.
The car went all over the place but Danny managed to get it down the track.
The last qualifying pass was a wild ride. At the finishline the car was nearly hitting the wall,
but as Danny says "If you can put one finger between the car and the wall, it's OK".
However the run wasn't over yet. The chutes didn't came out and Danny had a hard time with stopping
the car in the shutdown area. Still a nice 5,87 sec. Then we saw that the car was covered with oil.
Not a good sign. While opening the engine we found that one of the adjustment screws of the rockerarm
was broken and a pushrod made a hole in the valve cover.
Long night for the team, but they managed to repair the damage.
With his time of 5,83 sec. Danny was second qualifyer and in a good position to go into eliminations.
On Monday morning the car was ready, the team was ready but it started to rain and so they called
of the race.
Despite the rain-out, the team can look back to very consistent qualifying sessions.
This gives us a good base to work with at the next event in Tierp, Sweden in two weeks time.
We would like to thank our sponsors Rico Tools, Marcover, Iso-Mobil, Speedshop Belgium, Danny Cars
and De Klussenier, Nico van Uytven.
