Pictures of a couple of Corsa Short circuit racers

Pics as promised. It uses a close ratio box and rarely goes over 80mph on the track due to the course size. Most racing/drifting is done flat out.





The wing is going to be replaced with a larger one. It was developed in a wind tunnel and the cars back end needed to be raised by 2" as the chassis was grinding out @ speed with the downforce. With it, the car is being consistently placed, without it the back end (LSD) just spins up as soon as they start to turn in.



2 litre Ford Duratec engine producing about 200bhp in current trim. He has the kit to raise it to 275bhp but can't put it down, so not bothering at the moment.

The footage off my phone doesn't really do it justice. It is very loud ;)

This is the 2nd corsa race car under construction pics taken tonight.

He is trying to prep the car for a meeting in a couple of weeks time @ Standlake nr Whitney but he has a mountain to climb.

This one has a Zetec engine in it due to financial constraints - family man and all that.
