A significant milestone – got the engine fired up for the first time! Click on picture for video.
Still a lot of work before the car is drivable but it’s definitely getting there, and now it’s ‘alive’.
Testing on the Mountain is in two weeks and we pack up and leave for the race in less than a month. The paperwork for the test showed up yesterday as a reminder.
Obviously the testing will have to be done without bodywork, which is running late. It’s also looking like we may have to race with the old style body. As you know from earlier posts it is not entirely unexpected, although we haven’t given up pushing forward on getting it done as soon as possible.
