Following the engine rebuild by TenguDo Motorsport, it was time to get some running-in before the upcoming race meeting at Pembrey on Sunday 15th April. A friend had spotted an Arrive/Drive deal at the local Grimley Raceway.

Admittedly, Grimley Raceway is rather small but it allowed us to run the car up to temperature and get some miles on the engine. After 50 miles going around the oval we finished the day rather dizzy!

Karen is hoping to get some practice at Pembrey on Saturday before the three races on the Sunday. More miles on the engine would be welcomed in an effort to get it up to racing pace before going all out. For that race meeting at least, we'll be using a standard boost setting of around 0.8 Bar which will mean less power but on such a new engine that's no bad thing.
