As I write this we are only 51 days away from the start of Bonneville. Our Entry has been accepted and is shown as 7551 Rat Trap Racing LSR.
The motor has been completely freshened with New Arias Pistons, New Rods, an ISKY CAM, Trickflow heads. Our new Procharger Unit has arrived together with the “Intercooler”. We have new electronic fuel injection and a new dry sump system.
The body will be having some work done to update the aero package and will have onboard cameras to record everything.
So what is the plan? Well, we will arrive at Bonneville on the Monday of Speedweek. We will use the Monday to test and make sure I get my “A” Class licence and then go after the record. The class we are running is the BB/GRMR – BLOWN B Class Motor / GAS /REAR ENGINE / MODIFIED / ROADSTER The record is currently 212mph and according to our calculations we should be able to run at least 230-240mph.
I need to say a huge thank you to the following people:-
Ron Hope, Brian & Rebecca Hope, All of the Rat Trap Team, Technocraft Cabinets, Iskenderian Cams, Bob & Sharon Muravez, Tony Thacker & Friends and Ray Iddings our TV Producer & Director for all their help and support in helping me do this.
