… it’s been a good year.
An improved experience at Kyalami. The security officials seemed to know what, when, where and why. More streamlined. That is our experience …. Took Fossa trackside on the Friday. Completed our documentation and scrutineering. It was our first visit to the main pits. I feel the ventilation was greatly improved with the large back entry. The pits our side filled to what can only be over capacity, and I started to miss the secondary pits. I know Kyalami does not have F1 grading, it would however have been interesting to see how it the pits would work space wise.
Saturday morning on our post nice and early, This time we introduce some newbies to our world. Tea-m Manger, Annalie’s sister and brother attend a race for their first time. Did they like it? Generally, that can be measured with return visits. Wessel proves quite jacked with his camera.
Nothing spectacular to report, qualifying and race one go off without a hitch. Race two, three laps in, sudden loss of oil pressure and engine power have me crawling off track at the secondary pits and heading directly for the trailer park. Pity, in race one Fossa set a better lap time than a newbie running a “modern” Alfa. I was looking forward continuing where we left off 😉
We are still to remove Fossa’s engine to determine the reason behind the failure.
10 December, prize giving at Zwartkops Raceway, the team nets a first in class and a third in Little Giants of the 9Hour.
It’s been a busy and exciting year. The plan is to be back at the Passion for Speed, January 2018!
