Came across this car last week. It's powered by a 2L turbo engine. They should hire another designer.

Likewise, but it's no oil painting, is it!

From their press release
Quote:
At the end of lap 4, the safety car left the track and the race is re-started. Just as Alex Yoong is shaping up for another overtaking move, he had an accident at the Reservoir Bend, brushing the barriers with the right rear of his car. A piece of debris from the track got in the car and jammed the throttle, so Alex decided to stop the car.

“At the start, I passed a few car and at Mandarin Oriental Bend I passed another car around the outside. Then I went into Lisboa side by side with a Ferrari and although he tapped me at San Franciso Bend, I was able to accelerate up the hill and overtake him. Unfortunately I brushed the barriers and then debris from the track caused the throttle to be stuck. Without power I had to stop. It is a sad end to the race and I am sorry for my mistake.” Alex Yoong said.

The car in action. The car arrived in Macau with 0 miles on the clock. They will now go back to Malaysia and do some proper testing at Sepang.

I think when considering we went from literally nothing to what you see in that picture in 9 weeks, we did alright. The lack of testing hurt a lot regarding getting the car to handle however and there is obviously a lot of work to do but I think it is a car with a lot of potential. Look out for us next year!!

Getting a car on track in 9 weeks is a little better than a few ALMS teams have delivered. I know GT4 builds have to be a good bit easier than a GT2 car but they have put RSR's Jag build-up to shame.

The team performance in Macau was below the standard with regard to the expectations of the opening post. The car was completed in Macau and Alex did the shakedown during the Free Practice. Qualifying time of 2:55.051 is a Honda Civic time at Guia Circuit. They need to rethink the outfit this winter. The car is not even safe.

What is Jurgen Barth role in Bufori?

So you are questioning the capability of the Macau Grand Prix scrutineers?

Sure I am. Local scrutineers have no idea what they are doing.
