I just don't see a purpose of running the car outside its eot at the first wec sanctioned running for their first real season. Unless they want to get a team that believes it can win but that'd be false advertising imo. And if you think about it, it won't gain them any favors in terms of the eot. Being a little bit more behind might sway the rule makers of giving them a bit more favorable 'balance' on their car.

The BR1 (not to mention ByKolles) was often significantly faster through speed traps with equivalent configurations. Nothing seems odd about that, we're only talking about 6kph difference in event maximum speed when the slower Rebellion is 8kph up from Toyota, and they're like half a second slower in sector 2 as you would expect with less downforce.

Turbodcc should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid
Looks like all is going ahead. Although I would be very surprised if they are on pace with Rebellion within half a season, if at all....

yes, and with limited testing. So by the time Silverstone starts they should be 7-8 seconds back

All kidding aside, hope they can get some reliability to go with the speed potential.

Good to see they have their lineup sorted. It looks like they are a lot more prepared than last time

I’d be surprised if he isn’t. Whether their branding appears on the car is anyone’s guess

BTW forget the test.... toyota was just joking.... don't pretend to see toyota, rebellion and ginetta in just one second.

I'm not too sure about that. I didn't think the private teams would be able to do 3:16's at Le Mans but they did. Ginetta is basically brand new and they are right there with Rebellion only a few tenths back ultimately, at least in Spain. I am hopeful because they have a lot of room for improvement. When that happens they will be challenging for the win.

Do they have a low downforce kit yet? Or did Mecachrome ruin it?
