Scott made some little brackets for the radiator so it is tilted forward slightly which gives us some more clearance behind.

Then Thomas welded up some lovley alloy pipes for the coolant system. We are trying out a One/Cooper thermostat housing, no header tank and no in car heater so we've had to modify the coolant system slightly. This pipe comes round round the oil heat exchanger and feeds into the rad.

Just in Time- 03 November 2011
The log book arrived on the Thursday we MOT it on the Friday and was racing our new deno MINI on the Saturday in totally stock form including runflats, I was quite pleased with the 1.35 but disappointed that I couldn't go faster when it mattered............I proberly did but I took out some cones on the pit straight so my time was disqualified.
