    Re: Ferrari P4/5 Competizione Confirmed

    I might one of those flashing led lights that are turned on in the rain to prevent a collision?

    indeed shifting is ancient technology - so is a fuel burning engine..  I happen to like both :) 


    Re: Ferrari P4/5 Competizione Confirmed

    Completely unrelated, but I couldn't be more sickened at the new New York license plates. When I left we still had the Statue of Liberty plates.

    Then they transitioned to the Blue & Whites in early 2000.

    What on god's earth would possess them to reincarnate a redux of the 70's Yellow & Blue plates! They look awful, bland and tasteless compared to the stylistic and very attractive plates from other states.

    We had a Great Time!

    It was really great to see so many of you and to experience the feelings of the crowd towards the car first hand.

    We qualified 28 (went out on wrong tires, intermediates instead of rain, and by the time the track dried it was too late)

    We moved up over 7 laps to 14th. We made up three positions in the turns but lost a LOT on the straights.

    Our VMAX was 260KPH the MB and Porsches 285KPH. Unless we get less restriction it will be very hard for us.

    The pits were a bit crowded and we overheated which caused mechanical engine failure.
    Small oil fire ensued but no big deal.

    We'll put in a radiator fan for pit stops and we'll be good to go for our next race.

    We may run again in end of April as an additional race.

    Many thanks to Pirelli who have developed Great TIRES for us!

    There is no try. Just do.


    Re: Ferrari P4/5 Competizione Confirmed

    Awesome progress Jim, congrats and best of luck going forward!


    Re: Ferrari P4/5 Competizione Confirmed

    I've seen the P4/5 at work at the VLN-race saturday, awesome thing to behold on a racetrack.

    I assume I've seen Pierre's Clio too? These things must be such fun there, sadly on the TF after the VLN-race there were a lot of VLN-wannabees at work. Smiley


    Re: Ferrari P4/5 Competizione Confirmed

    Congratulations, Jim! 

    With correct tires it will easily qualify upper mid-pack. Maybe even top-10. If you get a recalc on the air restricter maybe Top-5 since you're only about 7 mph off the top speeds of the Porsches.

    BTW - naked, raw Carbon Fiber is how that car needs to be run. It looks like Darth Vader's personal Interceptor in the middle of the LFA & Porsche.

    Such a nice contrast to the more brightly painted cars. Johnny Cash would approve.

     I was just about to say something was wrong with the image, until I read the last line in your post. SmileySmiley


    Re: Ferrari P4/5 Competizione Confirmed

    great shot! All the best with the testing schedule and hopefully you guys get some slack on air restrictions so you can find more v max speed on the straights. Car looks absolutely stunning
