Our S1 race car project

PostPost by: niceolcars » Sun Mar 13, 2011 9:03 pm

My buddy and i have dropped our project to build a FIA App.K race car. :cry:
Over the past years loads of time and money have been invested in a 1963 S1 with a V5. Now in its finishing stages, we have moved on to another race ready car though, due to our time getting more and more limited.
While the body still needs some final touches and paint with all necessary parts ready, the chassis has the motor and gearbox, driveshaft and diff installed and is rolling. A wiring loom has to be made, the Safety Devices cage has to be installed. A fuel cell needs to be bought as well as a seat and belts plus other bits and bobs.
Our plan was to strictly stick to App. K, but there are still enough possibilities to alter things towards another direction. Most parts come from TT-Racing with bills in excess of 30k Euros to prove.
Please use my email and leave your telephone number, i will happily get back to you. The whole build process has been documented by photos. The added pictures are just teasers. Please bare in mind that this is not going to be a bargain with the abovementioned amount of money spent. But we are or of course willing to negotiate with you if you want to go racing this season :D
