Readying for Race Debut

Update by Scott Lear to the Mini Cooper S Club Racer project car
Jul 20, 2009

Our friends at Jet Black Motorsports helped us get some dyno figures.

A looming magazine deadline precludes a full-fledged update, but our MINI Cooper S is getting the final necessary touches and will be making its on-track debut at the July 24 Hankook Ultimate Track Car Challenge event at Virginia International Raceway.

After that, it will run some races in the Performance Touring series. Recent additions have included an RLC Track Commander data acquisition setup, some fresh oil, a coolant flush in favor of straight water, and Red Line Oil WaterWetter. We even got the car dynoed so we can figure out which class we’re going to be in. We’ll post the details at the first opportunity.
