TAU - 12

OVERVIEW

Following on from a summer spent ironing out the issues in getting the GSX-R engine running, the emphasis moved again back to reliability and drive-ability for TAU-12. The resulting car still weighed 23 kg less than her predecessor thanks to a keen eye for weight saving which had been missing the year before. TAU-12 was our best performing car so far, but a faulty throttle position sensor caused retirement from the Endurance event at Silverstone. The team again spent all summer tuning the car and training drivers, ready to get started on TAU-13.
