Monaco - post race


29th Apr 2021

Many thanks to everyone for the amazing support I received over the Monaco weekend. I was truly taken aback. Sadly I knew from qualifying that we had
an overheating issue and although I tried as best I could to get cold air in and hot out, it wasn’t enough and it started spitting back heavily at low revs and out of slow corners of which there are many at Monaco! As much as I tried to keep the revs up by slipping the clutch I eventually had to park the Fane car on the pit straight. It was nevertheless very special to get the car on pole & lead the race for 4 laps. I can tell it has serious potential in this race. The car is back now and all the compressions are fine so we will look at water circulation and the efficiency of the radiator. Regardless I am going to get this re-cored. I want to go back next year with every chance of success! PBE

Watch the action


Open practice:

Did 3 laps of 1/2 hr pre qual practice. Saving it for qual and race. Car felt fantastic around this wonderful circuit. Brakes marginal when pushing. Water temp quite high and a couple of spit backs made me park it. Gave it wider tappet clearances this pm and any one with a Gough knows this is a 3 hr job. Loving being here & running the car myself. Ben is flat out on the 4CLT and doesn’t want to get as oily as me! 
We are over geared, needs 1st 4 times a lap. Still pinching myself to be at this circuit with this car. Stuff of dreams quite frankly. P B-E
