Yellow Arrow Racing Team - Racing since 1970
Front and Rear Brakes Modified
06 July 2021:
After bad braking performance was the main issue during the first race of the season, the whole braking system of the Lotus Europa had to be changed. The stock brakes, which were mandatory in FIA Appendix K racing, have been replaced. The front is now equipped with ventilated discs and the rear with solid brake discs. This should be a big step forward.
Disappointing First Race of the Season
11 May 2021:
The first race weekend with the Lotus Europa since 2016 went not very well. Constant trouble with the brakes ment that we were always far off the pace. Over the race distance the brake issue got so much worse that it was necessary to retire the car a few minutes before the chequered flag in both races.
Before our next start these problems will be sorted out. We'll skip two events of the BELCAR Historic Cup, in order to use the time to upgrade the car.
