A40 @ Wiscombe

Look carefully and you can see that my DRS enabled itself just as I left the start line!
Further development required.

You could get in a lot of trouble if anyone notices you're sharing a picture of next year's Williams!

Gorgeous photo though. What times are you getting up Wiscombe in the A40?

Funny old game aero, it will have changed how the air travels under the car and I imagine change the effect at the rear and funnily enough slightly at the front. Obviously the effect would only be slight but interesting.

Best so far is 53.21 seconds. Just ahead of a Mk1 Cortina with Lotus twin cam fitted.
Aiming to get glass fibre bonnet and tailgate assembly to shed a bit more weight.

Have you fitted plastic windows yet? Good kit available and not crazy money and saves a good amount of weight which is high up and makes a big difference. F/glass bumpers would probably be best weight saving.

The bumpers are waiting to be fitted, unfortunately plastic windows are not allowed in hillclimbs and sprints.
