VSCC See Red Meeting. 

 

Donington Park, September 15-16 2007.

 

At long last the Lola Mk1 made it to the track.  After all the heartache of Goodwood the car was finally ready for what was nothing more than an extended test session. 

 

Running in the 1950’s Sportscars race at the two-day VSCC meeting Simon Diffey brought the car home safely after a gentle practice session and an enjoyable race.  Nothing serious went wrong but now we have to spend some time sorting out the detail and setting up the car for greater speed.  A full report (hopefully) with some pictures will appear here shortly.

 

That was the good news – now for the bad!  The Huffaker returned to the track after the Nick Swift engine rebuild.  Expecting great things we were VERY disappointed when the car lasted only three laps before the engine went off and started putting water out through the carbs!!  Lets hope it’s just a head gasket but whatever the cause, we were not at all happy.
