Competing in the Dutch Time Attack Championship 2014 Bo Nielsen has been working hard setting up the car and fine tuning the VXR Engine pulling in the region of 400BHP.OTM_6760

 

Since arriving in Holland we have had a number of issues which while out on track the 1st lap was quick and grip levels was great and power was there, second lap we had some oil drop issues where Bo signalled to me in the Passenger seat that there was an issue.

Taking a corner and no more than 60mph there was a banging noise and indicted that there was something seriously wrong and the cut out ignition was pushed.

Tow truck came and brought the VXR back in, and loaded back on the trailer to source help from out friends at Marcel Speedequipment.

The team there were more than happy to use there workshop and order parts to begin repair of the VXR engine and get it all done by Saturday which gave us 2 days.

after some thought by Bo and the team it would be cost effective if we returned home to the UK and collect the second engine and bring back again and. We left around 6pm Wednesday ad got back into the UK at 10pm there abouts at the lock up.

it was a case of piecing up the engine and parts and back out on the road. 15 mins turnaround and headed back to the Euro Tunnel Train.

A very hard and exhausting start of the trip we thought was going to be stress free, but all in all we traveled through 5 countries in 24hrs which is cool.

We arrived back to Speedequipment Nederland at 9am the following day after a long night of driving and power naps we were glad to be back where we were greeted with coffee and beer……
