New Engine in (First) Place

Per
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!
