Season 2023 ends early
26 July 2023
After a damaged head gasket stopped our efforts in Zolder, the cylinder head was found to be damaged beyond repair. As no spare engine is ready, we had to try and source a new cylinder head. But a fitting cylinder head, which is prepared in the right way, can't be bought off the shelf. The sourcing and manufacturing process takes months, so that we will not be able to race again in 2023.
First Race of the 2023 Season
15 May 2023
The first round of the BELCAR Historic Cup didn't go as intended. The car lacked power during the whole weekend and the fastest lap was two second slower than in 2022. After the start of race 1, we were leading shortly. Unfortunately, we lost the lead quickly and had no chance to get it back. Race 2 ended early, after loss of coolant.
Preparations for the season
09 March 2023
The preparations for the new season have been delayed by supply issues of engine and gearbox parts. That's why the test session at Circuit Zolder has been postponed from March 30th to May 11th. The biggest upgrade over the winter should be the new ATB differential.
2023 Race Calendar
15 December 2022
The upcoming BHC season will feature six events on four race tracks in three countries. Five of these events will be part of the championship, but Assen will not. Thus, it's likely that we'll not race there.
1st Place and DNF at Spa-Francorchamps
27 June 2022
The starting position was quite bad due to a braking issue in qualifying. In race 1 we managed to finish first in class, eventhough we had trouble with loss of coolant. Weather conditions for race 2 were difficult to predict and we went for rain tires, but the track dried fast. We tried to finish without a tire change, but the alternator impeller collapsed and cut an ignition cable, which ment DNF in race 2.
First Podium in BELCAR Historic Cup
16 May 2022
The first round of BELCAR Historic Cup 2022 brought us a 2nd place in race 1. It was very close as we crossed the finish line only two seconds behind the winner. In race 2 the Lotus Europa lost power in the last corner of the last lap due to a fuel pump issue. Unfortunately, we didn't score any points for race 2, as we didn't cross the finish line.
