Formula North 2016: Days 3&4
The last two days of competition were dedicated to dynamics events. Day 3 is all about Acceleration, Skidpad and Autocross with Day 4 being the big event: endurance.
We started the day with the normal morning fixes then off to fueling and accel. It took a while to get the car ready but we even tally got in all four of our runs with Wilson pulling the fastest time of 4.56s.
We then went right over to skidpad with Wilson pulling around a 5.5s.
After lunch it was time to run autocross. We had a couple issues involving fuel and CO2 which took some time to fix so it was a rush to the line. Finally we got all 4 autocross runs in. They were looking pretty fast but I think we accidentally had the cone magnet on because we didn’t manage to put up a clean run.
We then ran back to the pit to get ready for design finals. Had a pep talk and then everyone got suited up. Design finals went really well and I think everyone had a good time showcasing what they know.
We pulled the car out of the pit and into the parking lot to work on it during the evening/night. We weren’t confident that the fuel pump we were running would be able to get to all the fuel necessary for a full enduro run so we swapped in the hydramat.
