Really sorry its been sometime between blogs but here’s a quick update :) The #teamluxeperformance Excel Cup car – we ran a couple of bearings in the engine the last time I drove, the car felt strong but the engine failure ended the night. We are very lucky to have some great local help Damien at DC Auto Centre helped strip the engine out of the spare car and Excel legend Paul Passaris rebuilt the spare engine for us at the drop of a hat to finish it of we added a baffled sump by Carlos Ambrosio to stop any...
Straight out the box let me clear this up this is a BIG thing for our local race series – I don’t know of many if not any other local state level circuit based category that has a sponsorship agreement in place backed by an international Motorsport Brand.
Still seeing Kill switches done incorrectly - The officials at the track are well trained and there to respond in an emergency – if you are unfortunate enough to have an accident and your unresponsive the officials know to hit the isolator to kill the car. If your isolator just cuts the battery and the engine keeps running on pumping oil everywhere or worse fuel its not going to end well.
What’s it all about? Why who and how? We have decided to build a couple of Excel Cup Race cars to get people out on the track racing door to door - this blog goes over some of our thought process that got us to this crazy idea.
Just in time for Christmas is our latest blog post about our good mate Lauren Cornes and her Unicornes Motorsport 350Z . Lauren has been a mate for a while now she has been key in keeping our interest in the State Speed Event Series through her role in CAMS with Motorsport development.
