Spinnaker Dallara Pics & Info

Apologies if someone has already posted this - but couldn't see it in a quick check.

Nice pics from Clan Des Team of the Dallara (MG) Judd at LM PQ on the CDT site (also worth a quick browse)

http://www.clandesteam.it/endurance_...a/gallery1.asp

BTW, am I unique (I know I'm unusual ) in following closely both Le Mans and Americas Cup? The entry of Clan Des Team in the latter is causing much interest - they are the ONLY team to have paid the 1 million euro entrance fee so far.

Am I right in assuming the backing for the Dallara (and by inference the yachting team) comes from Rocky Agusta?

Any one any lowdown on this? Spinnaker/CDT are a bit of a mystery in both circles.

It was about as fast as a sailboat during the test days too And to think they didn't admit any of the good MK3C's to the race.

slightly OT, mariantic, but can you put here some link for a place where I can follow the America's Cup? I want to cry over what we here in Portugal let go to Spain...

Don't cry, your country has the European Championship Football.

The Spinnaker has a boring livery.

Not quite, I'm a fairly avid sailor myself (Farr40, Swan45, J109 to name a few), and spent a great deal of time during the last Cup studying any and every technical article about the boats I could find (including many hours on the AC site, and my head stuck in Seahourse and Yachting World magazines). I also watched almost all of the final Cup races on virtual spectator, I will always remeber being captivated when Alinghi rolled over the top of TNZ on the final leg of one race. I was furiously comparing "the Numbers" trying to see if they could pull it off... which they did

Also helps when my brother works in the boat prep business, and comes into contact with a number of current and Ex Cup sailors (he knows a number of the GBR crew, who had some very interesting stories about the other [unraced] team GBR boat from the last cup....)

Interesting to note about them being the only Euro team so far, but I wouldn't worry too much, as GBR I think are lining up to place theirs soon too (from a fairly reliable source, who I happend to be sailing with a couple of weeks back). Also I would have though K-Challenge, Luna-Rossa and the South African guys would have these in soon too

Oh and the car looks good too

Just to be completely remote form sportscars for a sec....

The Phillips boat you mention would be Team Phillips. It was a boat construced for The Race, but unfortuantly lost during a massive storm. . It was also the one that publicly snapped its bow on a sea trial, this was due to a manufacturing fault caused by the extrme nature of the design, however the reason the boat was lost is not the same (another story, not really the place to go into it here, unless one of the mods ok's it)

However this is not the same as an Americas Cup class (IACC) boat. The AC boats are awesome beasts weighing in at about 25 tons, 20 odd tons of that hanging off the bottom of a boat in the keel...
There was a very good article comparing a IACC with an F1 car in a recent issue (april 2004 iirc) of Top Gear Mag, made for some interesting reading, as I can happily relate to both. I think some guys figured out that the sails produce the equivilent of about 300bhp upwind, and near 500bhp donwind.
GBR Challenge was set-up by a guy called Peter Harrison of Chernikeff fame, for the last cup. They have their base in Cowes.
GBR Challenge Website
I recomend having a look at some of the pics, and take not there are no guard rails or anything like that, if you fall over the side (which does happen), you get left behind . I remember seeing some funny footage of that happening, thankfully the guy managed to hold on to a line and hauled himself back on board.

you see you got me started now....
