  4. KV Racing Technology put in a sensational team effort at Twin Ring Motegi Saturday and scored two Top Ten positions in qualifications with E.J. Viso and Japanese star Takuma Sato starting eighth and tenth for Sunday's Indy Japan 300. Viso, driving the No. 8 PDVSA — KV Racing Technology Honda/Dallara/Firestone car, recorded his best oval qualifying performance of the year with a fourth row starting spot in the 300-mile event on the fast 1.5-mile oval track north of Tokyo. The 25-year-old Venezuelan recorded a two-lap average of 199.487 miles per hour to lead the three-car KVRT contingent i
  5. Takuma Sato has been keeping a pace similar to his 230-mile per hour IndyCar for the past two weeks in Japan. Sato, the seven-year Formula One veteran, will make his first Japanese racing performance in three years this Sunday in the Indy Japan 300 at the fast Twin Ring Motegi 1.5-mile oval. But the 33-year-old Tokyo native has been in high demand off the track with a variety of appearances in his native country. Taku's last competition in Japan was at Fuji Speedway on September 30, 2007, so his enthusiastic fans and sponsors are anxious to see him behind the wheel of the #5 Lo
  6. The new Lotus Evora Cup/GT4 makes its racing debut this weekend (28th-29th August 2010) in the hands of Lotus rookie driver Ollie Hancock. Lotus Motorsport has entered the Lotus Evora Cup/GT4 in the "Invitation" category of the European GT4 Championships as part of a year long development programme prior to a full GT4 championship assault in 2011. The GT4 will also be made available as a customer race car to privateer racing teams. With 360 PS and weighing in at just 1190 kg, nearly 200 kg less than the road going Evora, the new Evora GT4 carries the Lotus Type Number 124 an
  7. It was a tough weekend for Takuma Sato in the latest IndyCar Series round at the Sonoma road course in California, but the Japanese star looked set for a rewarding tenth-place finish in the closing laps... Then came a mystery problem on the final restart, which left Sato with no grip at the front and contributed to a late collision. After a pit-stop, he rejoined to finish a disappointed 18th. For the second race running, Sato and his KV Racing Technology team had the opportunity to get in some pre-event testing with their Lotus backed Dallara-Honda. But it did not go as planned.
  8. KV Racing Technology IZOD IndyCar Series rookie Takuma Sato is looking forward to the challenges of the tough Infineon Raceway road circuit this weekend in the 2010 Indy Grand Prix of Sonoma. Sato has shown impressive displays on road courses this year, and comes off a testing session last week on the 2.303-mile, twelve-turn track with solid optimism. The F1 veteran has been spectacular this year in his maiden campaign on the permanent road circuits by qualifying in all three Firestone Fast Six rounds, including a season-best third two weeks ago at Mid-Ohio.

    How do I bleed my brakes?

    It is possible to bleed the brakes using the traditional 2 person technique (1 pushing the pedal and 1 controlling the flow through the nipple) however a pressure bleeding system (such as a Gunsons Eezi-bleed) makes it a relatively easy 1 person job. The basic procedure with an Eezi-bleed is as follows:- Fill Eezi-bleed bottle. Connect Eezi-bleed cap to resevoir Connect air pressure feed to tyre (checking for leaks). With a clear hose attached and feeding into a jar, undo bleed nipple using a ring spanner. Continue until fluid is bleeding clear and without bubbles. Nip up the

    Elise Suspension

    Overview There are numerous options of springs and dampers (commonly referred to as suspension options) available for Elises. Some of these are available from the factory (such as the red Konis fitted to std S1's, the yellow Lotus Sport Suspension dampers fitted on higher spec variants and the yellow Bilsteins fitted to S2's) and some are from specialist aftermarket manufacturers (e.g. Nitron, Spax, Gaz etc). The spring and damper perform different operations; the spring is there predominantly to support the mass of the car whilst the damper resists movement - the faster the sus

    Is it worthwhile me getting a tracker to get cheaper insurance? Change insurance companies. There's loads that don't require them and seem to add no extra premium for not having one. Trackers are expensive with little comeback on insurance IMHO. Unless you've got a car with one fitted already, I wouldn't bother.
  15. LEXINGTON, Ohio (Aug. 3 , 2010) — The three-driver KV Racing Technology contingent enters Sunday's Honda Indy 200 at the Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course on a high note. After scoring all four KVRT drivers in the top-ten at Edmonton two weeks ago, the Indianapolis-based squad with an international flair — drivers from Brazil, Venezuela and Japan — is set to continue its impressive road course runs in the 12th stop on the 17-race IZOD IndyCar Series. Canadian Paul Tracy, who placed sixth at Edmonton as the fourth KVRT driver, will not participate at Mid-Ohio. Youn
