Blower belts at the Easter Thunderball

Click here to return to the news

The Easter Thunderball saw Nosferatu's first public appearance. Sadly the weather for most of the weekend was terrible. We had 2 runs on Sunday, but the engine died both times. It turned out that the emergency cut off switch wasn't working properly, so we were confident that Monday would see at least one full pass during eliminations, which would give us some data. After waiting until early afternoon for our turn, the blower belt snapped just before half track. So, after 4 days at the track, we still hadn't managed a full pass.
