MCSA Supersprint Round 3, July 2014

Some more good Fiat news – Russel Frick’s crazy X1/9 track car has landed at Mallala.

And what a landing! Despite sensibly treading warily, Russell has put down a 1:22.9 lap, with plenty more to come when he and the X get a bit more familiar with each other. The car is powered by a 240hp Honda VTEC engine, which makes it a bit more lively than the usual 1500 SOHC.

And also significant, Andrew Coles’ recently rebuit (again) X1/9 also made the road trip this time with no problems, including a short spin around the track.
