I had a great surprise today when arriving at Torque Racing HQ, as Martin had fitted the new piston to the waiting bottom end of the project 450 motor, then finished it off with the rebuilt head.
All turned over well, plenty of valve clearance and nice compression.I was very impressed to see it all come together after many months of hard work, given the huge personal setbacks we have all had over the last year.
I am extremely glad it has got this far, and much credit goes to Martin at Torque Racing, Dan Coxall at Cosworth, Derrick Edmondson & Jonah at Edmondson Racing for their support in all aspects of this project.
It is at landmark times like this that our absent friends, Gordon & Wes, are most missed, as they would both have had a lot to say about the idea, as they were both involved in it's conception.
The next stage is to get it into a bike when we return fron Transanatolia Rallye in Turkey for trail testing.
