This was our first race this past week-end in the Heritage Touring Cup championship on the ex. Formula 1 track in Dijon (France). For those who are not familiar with this track (there might be some), here is a link to the most famous Formula 1 battle in history in Dijon in 1979 between Rene Arnoux and Gilles Villeneuve : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4pMkYK2d_GI
As for our race, we qualified 8th out of 25 cars which was a big result for a first race with the car. The BMW CSL are too fast for us but the car was surprisingly well balanced, sliding but not too much. We solved the brake problems and are now trying to improve them a bit (this is the weak point of the car).
For the race, due to two withdrawals following engine problems, we started 6th, and passed an ex.works BMW 635 Csi on the starting line, getting on 5th place in the first lap ! Unfortunately an electrical problem in the second lap cost us 20 minutes. We finally fixed the issue and finished 10th. I have to say that only 10 cars did finish the race ! Anyway, it was already an achievement to finish on our first outing.
The car is a blast to drive !
