New Engine in (First) Place

Update by Per Schroeder to the LeGrand Mk 18 project car
Apr 14, 2010

This was Kim Schroeder's first event in the car. She finished a few seconds back but had a blast.
The course was a mix of tight sweepers and fast offsets.

Our new-to-us 2006 ZX10R engine is now installed in our LeGrand and running well. After the transplant, we brought the sports racer out to a Central Florida-region SCCA autocross. We posted the Fastest Time of the Day and finished seventh on index.

Results can be found here.

We’ve got a small list of projects to work on before the LeGrand’s next event, including installing wider front tires, reworking the hydraulic clutch slave arrangement, and doing some trailer tie-down work.

Yes, and I was right behind you in 8th. Your rocket was looking and running great; extremely impressive to watch you threading through the cones.

So is it listed as a "LaGrande" cause a girl was driving it? Good Job Kim!
