keep a purify car. The competition grown as expected; a initial path was a
small crazy with some crashes though we done it through. It was clear
that we were blank gait compared to a competitors. We attempted to run
a vital competition and that went as designed though we weren’t means to

tough and we pierce on to Mosport looking for a improved result.”
