The winter rebuild of the Tuscan V8 is underway!
2020 Race Calendar           2021 Race Calendar

Work is now well underway to improve the mighty V8 for next year; there were quite a few issues to address especially given that the engine had not been out of the car for over 6 years. It's now in bits in the workshop while a number of new parts wend their way from the USA.  Once back together and following a quick dyno session it'll be back in the car ready for Snetterton in 2021. The shocks have already been off and been rebuilt (new valves and seals) and it was interesting that one of the rods was slightly bent (probably from the 2017 Spa crash) although I am not convinced it was affecting performance although the ability of the suspension to keep the tyres in contact with the track is more important than many people think.  For any given car, a near-guaranteed way to lap a circuit faster is setting up the ride height, spring rates, anti-roll bars and shock valving correctly. On the Falcon we gained 8 seconds a lap at Spa just by changing and improving those things.

On a secondary note, the long-awaited Armstrong Siddeley engine (a New Zealand-sourced 1928 Buick Master 6 engine) is finally coming together with the aim of getting the car on road by Summer 2021.
