Frustrating. Cars can be very frustrating.
Having spent the winter working on the ’73 BMW 2002 Hot Rod aka ‘The Shitterror’, there was a huge amount of anticipation riding on it’s first outing on circuit in 2016. The EuroHoon, the annual pilgrimage to the Swiss Alps, had lead to a number of significant changes to the 2002. We had learnt that on track, flat out, when dealing with high air temperatures that it could quickly get too hot. On the track days in both Valencia and Barcelona after just a couple of laps the coolant temperature would be nudging over 115 °C.
