TAU - 13

CAR 13.jpeg


Further emphasis on weight saving led to a reduction in weight to just 200 kg - which for a 4 cylinder steel space-frame car we are very proud of. TAU-13 also made use of a student programmed and mapped Life Racing ECU, meaning more of the GSX-R's potential could be unlocked. TAU-13 competed strongly in all dynamic events, as well as providing TAU Racing's highest static scores to date.
