What a track! Were you going through the fabled Eau Rouge with out lifting? Sounded as if you kept your foot in it. Great footage, Thanks.

I would lie if I would say with full....

I'm coming down the straight in 5th (OD), turn to the left, disengage the OD to 4th and THEN I'm on full throttle again and on the turn right and hoping for the best to hit the left curb at the best point because you can't see it.

Cheers

This is the free practice where I gave my TR4 some Porsches as breakfast...

Great!

I like the elevation changes. Lots of ups and downs.

Did that yellow TR-3 and that white Mustang come in contact? Here in the US, most vintage clubs would require both of them to come in to the pits right away. And they would not go back until until (maybe) the next race or practice.

I see your clutch or OD unit is still slipping.
I ran my Sprite an entire season with a bad clutch. <<GRAEMLIN_URL>>/grin.gif

I hope to have a new race video from the Pittsburgh Vintage next week.

The HP is around 165 - 170. Weight 883 kg. Don't know how many stones this are.

Yep, the TR3 and the Mustang did tangle but not badly. If none of the drivers protesting then nobody do care about the incident.

And yep, the OD clutch is slipping when the oil gets hot. The original clutch did hold, the new one seems not that strong.

Awesome drive! I was sitting here eating popcorn enjoying the race... then SNAP SPIN CRACK and I threw my popcorn! Your axle snap to near flip scared the scheiße out of me! Fantastic Run I must say! You, sir, gnädiger Herr, have much larger 'eier' than I do to run the way you did through some of those parts.

I could imagine to fit a little radiator under the car to the frame and feed it with a fuel pump. I don't know if this is worth. When I feel that the OD starts slipping then I try to take off some load on low gears. Does help in most cases.

Sorry for your spilled popcorn! To come back to "balls".

There was a pro driver in that race: Marc Basseng - ALMS driver.

He did 5 sec faster laps than me in a blue TR3. I did overtake the TR3 but at that moment the car was driven by a co driver and not Mr. Basseng. After the pit stop Basseng climbed into the car and did a perfect ride....he snaped an axle too and crashed the car.
