    How about you guys?

    You think we'll be Fast?  Slow?  Very Fast?  Very Slow?

    :)

     I'm thinking fast is a pretty safe bet. Remember to keep the rubber side down.Smiley

    my guess it will be at least as fast as the 430 gte, but that also depends on the drivers, if you hire the likes of Melo, Bruni its gona fly into the sunset, sunrize and claim the trophy

    Answer is sort of a relative thing, Jim.

    What class will it run in again?

    Like most privateers, you'll be medium paced at the start. Not as slow as the back markers - not as fast as the more experienced and sorted out teams with seasoned cars.

    You'll begin to find the car's pace throughout the race and where it all fits in the throng. From there it will either be Fast or stay on Pace. if you think you can bring the car home with a race finish - which is commendable for any privateer team with an all new essentially one-off design - maybe continue at a respectable finishing pace for reliability and completion reasons.

    If the car is fast and you're in the position to say be Top-5 or even podium, drive it to 10/10ths and go for it all.

    There is no try. Just do.


    Re: Ferrari P4/5 Competizione Confirmed

    Damn the car really does look sexy in naked carbon.

    Rather than paint the whole car, maybe leave portions exposed like the Pagani Cinque.

    I think she will be faster than a F430GTE as i imagine you might run with a little more downforce

    Been watching Charlie Wilson's war, eh?

    Gust:

    "A boy is given a horse on his 14th birthday. Everyone in the village says, “Oh how wonderful.” But a Zen master who lives in the village says, “We shall see.
    The boy falls off the horse and breaks his foot. Everyone in the village says, “Oh how awful.” The Zen master says, “We shall see.”
    The village is thrown into war and all the young men have to go to war. But, because of the broken foot, the boy stays behind. Everyone says, “Oh, how wonderful.”
    The Zen master says, “We shall see.”

    Holy cow.... thanks for the videos. This is impressive!

    It is so cool to be part of the story and being able to follow the complete build process.


    Re: Ferrari P4/5 Competizione Confirmed

    Thanks!


    Re: Ferrari P4/5 Competizione Confirmed

    was the 430 u saw shortly in the first video a benchmark car or did it just happen to be there ?


    Re: Ferrari P4/5 Competizione Confirmed

    It just happened to be there.

    Very nice guys.

    Re: Ferrari P4/5 Competizione Confirmed

    Car is very comfortable and stable.  Downforce and balance very good.  Runs like a train.  We are running a lot of air restriction which limits our HP and VMAX.  We hope to be allowed a little less air restriction (GT2) which would give us a chance.1301332412040196338_186657051378646_100001030567541_456119_3297203_n.jpg


    Re: Ferrari P4/5 Competizione Confirmed

    Jim, glad to read that the project is coming along nicely. Out of curiosity, what was the car's VMax down the Ring's long straight?

    FERRARI RULES!!!


    Re: Ferrari P4/5 Competizione Confirmed

    With our air restriction too low.

    We shall see...

    I'll try not to be (too much) in your way...

    @ Pierre: just go faster......Smiley Seriously, the speed difference at Kesselchen must be 100 km/h or so Smiley - I know how it feels: last Monday I had a blast as a passenger in a 997 GT2 (really driven at the limit...) when a beautiful old 911 SC "emerged" in front of us just before Mutkurve Smiley


    @ Jim: you must be very excited counting down the hours until tomorrow noon!!  I wish you and your team a very successfull premiere race in the Green Hell - the P4/5 certainly will be a brilliant star (even in black Smiley) for the spectators  Smiley

    In case of Pierre the driver has to be star, not the car Smiley

    Thanks!

    Re: Ferrari P4/5 Competizione Confirmed

    @Porsche-Jeck: in Kesselchen, my top speed is about 188 km/h, so the delta is big but not 100 km/h. But at Döttinger Höhe, I'm hitting the limiter at 211 and the fastest cars are probably at around 290. That's a nice delta... ;)

    Anyway, I'm far from being the quickest, but there are a few big cars that must be driven by monkeys... (And I don't mean harrismonkey!)

    I thought this was dumped into the bin by some team, so I took it with me tonight.
