  6. 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 in the next to last round of the 17-race IZOD IndyCar Series. Sato and his Lotus—KVRT squad were a remarkable story Saturday at Twin Ring Motegi. The seven-year Formula One star makes his Motegi debut Sunday, but Saturday started rocky for the 33-year-old IndyCar rookie. A part failure early in Saturday morning practice caused Sato and his machine to spin and slide into the Turn One wall. The KVRT crew, with co-owner Jimmy Vasser also pitching in to assist in the repairs, forged a tremendous effort in the garage area to rebuild the No. 5 Lotus—KVRT Honda/Dallara/Firestone in time to collect 27 laps in the afternoon practice session. For qualifying, Sato had the home crowd on their feet with a two-lap average of 199.191 m.p.h. taking the fifth row starting position in the 25-driver field. The Tokyo native is the fastest Japanese driver this weekend at Motegi. Helio Castroneves won the Motegi pole position in a Team Penske 1-2-3 qualifying sweep. Sunday's Indy Japan 300 will start at 1 p.m. Japanese time and will be televised at 11 p.m. EDT Saturday on the Versus Network in North America. Young Brazilian driver Mario Moraes will start 20th in the No. 32 KV Racing Technology Honda/Dallara/Firestone car with a speed of 196.460 m.p.h. DRIVER QUOTES: E.J. VISO -- #8 PDVSA – KV RACING TECHNOLOGY HONDA/DALLARA/FIRESTONE: "We have been strong all day in practice and qualifying. I am happy with the improvements we have done on the PDVSA – KV Racing car. I worked with Takuma to help him on the setup and he had a good qualifying as well. We are now in a strong position for Sunday's race here at Motegi. We have had a good race car on the oval tracks this year, so I expect to be very good for the race. This track has such different turns. Turns One and Two are flat on the throttle and Turns Three and Four are much more difficult for a driver. You really have to work with roll bars and the weight jacker to adjust the car through the tighter Turns Three and Four. I feel good going into the Motegi race." TAKUMA SATO -- #5 LOTUS – KV RACING TECHNOLOGY HONDA/DALLARA/FIRESTONE: "I think KV Racing Technology won the day. It's a great result for the whole team. After we had such a difficult situation in the morning, the whole team, crew members from all three cars, came together to work on my car. I really appreciate all the mechanics and everything they did. It was a great job. Even though I only ran a few laps during the second practice, I want to thank the engineers for giving me a car that gave me the confidence to attack the most challenging oval in the series during my qualifying run. I also have to thank the fans. They are really behind me. The next step is to review all the data from today and hopefully we will have a good race tomorrow."
  7. 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 Lotus—KV Racing Technology Honda/Dallara/Firestone entry. From his Denver home, Sato left for Tokyo on Sept. 7 and hasn't slowed down since his arrival. Sato has already made six day appearances in Japan including autograph sessions, media conferences, dealer visits and two Research & Development ride and drive programmes. On Friday at the track this week, a huge contingent of Taku fans are scheduled to meet the driving star at the Twin Ring Motegi circuit for a 'special student and fan day'. On Saturday and Sunday, Sato will be appearing on numerous television and radio shows and visiting with guests of his Japanese sponsors before the 300-mile race. "It will be a very busy weekend at Motegi," he said. "I knew this race would be a big one when I came to the IZOD IndyCar Series. It will be fun to race in front of the home fans. I look forward to the entire experience of the race and the event."
  8. 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 and represents part of Lotus' new strategic GT motorsport programme, further details of which will be announced at the Paris Motor Show on the 30th of September 2010. Liveried in striking Lotus Motorsport Green with a yellow twin-stripe running down the centre, the Lotus Evora Cup/GT4 brings the iconic colour scheme back once again to sports car racing. The Evora Cup/GT4 will debut just a matter of hours after Lotus announced the new 350 PS, supercharged Evora S road car, to be unveiled at the Paris Motor Show. Information about the new Evora S can be found here http://www.grouplotu...s/image/536.pdf. Already, the Lotus Evora Cup/GT4 has undergone a punishing and extensive development programme with Lotus Racing's F1 driver Jarno Trulli, experienced GT racer Johnny Mowlem and Lotus Motorsport's own Product Manager Gavan Kershaw as part of the development team. Lotus Motorsport's IndyCar driver Takuma Sato and 1996 Champ Car winner, Jimmy Vasser have also given extensive feedback having driven the Evora Cup/GT4 at the legendary Laguna Seca race circuit in early August, giving Lotus' newest race car a most diverse and comprehensive pedigree. Accompanying the Evora's debut will be four ultra lightweight Lotus 2-Eleven GT4 race cars, two of which will be entered in the Lotus Motorsport colour scheme and run by NFS Racing Dubai. The other two cars will be run by Team Scuderia Giudici, who currently lead the GT4 "Super Sports" Championship category. For those who can't make the journey to the Nürburgring in the beautiful Eifel region to see the Evora Cup/GT4 making its first racing appearance, then GT racing fans will have an opportunity to see a second Evora Cup/GT4 in the slightly less hilly surroundings of Norfolk where Lotus Motorsport's Product Manager Gavan Kershaw will be giving demonstration laps during the Snetterton round of the British GT4 Championships also over the weekend of the 28th and 29th of August. A video of the new Lotus Evora Cup/GT4 and a road going Lotus Evora being driven at Laguna Seca, including commentary by Takuma Sato and Jimmy Vasser can be found at: http://www.lotusfile...EvoraCupGT4.mov.
  9. 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. "We had such a strong race in Mid-Ohio, and the test there had been very productive and it was great to understand the whole thing," said Taku. "We brought our successful package to Sonoma, but it just didn't work out. This circuit requires a different philosophy and we couldn't find the right set-up. But that was also very valuable information – it's the way to learn. "So the test was good, and we studied and came back and hoped the car would be stronger. But conditions were different for practice and we seemed to be missing something fundamental – it wasn't comfortable and we couldn't find good speed. It was no one thing – just balance and grip. "Sonoma is a stunning circuit, different to any track I've ever driven. The elevation changes are massive and the TV pictures only really half-show that. Turn one and two are like a wall – like Eau Rouge at Spa, but here you have to brake and turn 90 degrees. It's a very challenging circuit for driver commitment – you can really enjoy it if you have a balanced car." Qualifying proved a disappointment, with Sato taking ninth-fastest time in his group to line up 17th on the grid. "No one made it from KV," pointed out Taku. "The warm-up was the only hope we could get it back together and finally found something positive after changing the set-up a little." There was a dramatic start, with Sato having to steer into the run-off to avoid the rolling Dan Wheldon before the startline! "An accident shouldn't happen before the start – everyone was too close," he said. "I saw Dan was launched up in air, then immediately after I heard the race was aborted so I wanted make sure that I avoided a second accident and the debris so had to go wide and slow down and lost a couple of places. I was sure I could go back to where I was before the start, because I hadn't even crossed the startline when I lost the places, but I couldn't." After that Taku settled down into a rhythm, and would run in company with Bertrand Baguette and Raphael Matos for most of the race. "I could follow guys and save fuel, and commit to attack," he said. "Today was fun because I overtook a number of cars. We decided to make a short first stint and long second, different from normal but because of that I would have an opportunity to gain positions. Today, I always caught someone in front all the time so it was very positive and exciting." Bit by bit Sato worked his way up the order, and was sitting pretty in the top ten when the final caution flags flew. Then his race turned sour… "After the restart I was so struggling for grip, particularly at the front, and we are looking at what the problem is. I had massive understeer. I was braking much earlier but locking up, just like in a Formula 3 race at Donington in 2001 when I had a slow puncture. The car was wobbling too. I tried to hang on but couldn't. "Danica Patrick and Alex Lloyd came past and they were just getting into the corner at the end of the back straight – I tried to avoid them but the damage or problem was so severe I just couldn't make the car turn and unfortunately I tangled with Danica. After that I had flat tyres and came into the pits, and finished a lap down." So ends the run of road and street courses, and now the series returns to the ovals, with a trip east to the Chicagoland track, around 30 miles out of Chicago, for the next round on Saturday. "The race was positive after a difficult start, and I was determined to get back to the front to do what we were able to in Mid-Ohio," Taku said. "It's a shame we couldn't achieve what we wanted, but now my brain needs to shift completely and go into oval mode. Our oval races earlier in the season were encouraging, so hopefully we can pick up from that and take good momentum into my home race at Motegi."
  10. 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. Driving the stunning green-and-gold No. 5 Lotus - KVRT Honda/Dallara/Firestone car, Sato has continued his learning curve as a rookie in the 17-race IZOD IndyCar Series with impressive road course speed. In addition, the Japanese ace has been just as strong on the oval tracks, a completely new racing form for the open-wheel veteran. At Iowa he as ran as high third and he battled in the top five in his first oval outing at Kansas, but the road circuits are his 'home' and the 33-year-old clearly expects to be in contention in both qualifying and the race this weekend at Infineon. "It was my first visit to Infineon Raceway when we had a test there last week," he acknowledged, "and I really enjoyed driving at this great venue. We did various set-up work at the test and we collected very valuable data, so I hope we can have a very strong race weekend. It is indeed a very challenging circuit with huge elevation changes; you just can't see how steep the hills are on pictures… I think racing there will be very exciting and spectacular." The Indy Grand Prix of Sonoma is the final road race for the series in 2010, and will be televised live on Sunday on Versus at 5pm EDT.

    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 bleed nipple. Repeat for all corners, possibly going round the set a couple of times. The usual procedure is to start with the longest brakelines, i.e. nearside-rear, offside-rear, nearside-front, offside-front. Keep checking the Eezibleed resevoir. If you need to top it up DONT FORGET TO TAKE OFF THE AIR SUPPLY before removing the top! When done disconnect air supply and remove Eezibleed. Use a torque wrench to tighten the bleed nipples (if you have a torque to set them to and a wrench available). You can do this by hand, but it is tempting to overtighten them. Give the nipples a spray with brake cleaner to clear them and the calipers of excess fluid. Try the brake pedal. Check the calipers/nipples for any signs of leakage. Top up resevoir and replace cap. The biggest problem bleeding a dry system (e.g. following following a brake hose or caliper change) is removing air from the front calipers. The layout of the front caliper is such that there is a void in one half of the caliper thats is difficult to bleed with the caliper in the fitted position. Arguably the best way to remove air in this pocket is to remove the caliper from the upright and bleed the caliper whilst rotating it in a steady 360deg arc, repeating the process until no further air bubbles come out and the pedal becomes firm.
  12. Kit: Spanner Set. Socket Set. Wire Wool. Silicon sealer. WD40. Copper Grease or similar. Any bolts that look knackerd that hold the shocks. Day before: spray all nuts and bolts holding shocks with WD40 Slightly loosen all wheel bolts Jack one side of car up, chock wheel Remove wheel your working on Undo the two bolts holding shock on Remove old shock On rears: fit new shock, noteing that shock is correct way up. zip tie speedo cable to shock body on LHS, ensuring it has enough slack not to strech all the way through wishbones travel. tighten bolts. Clean wheel and hub faces. Grease faces with copper grease. re-fit wheel On fronts: remove old shock. remove nuts holding old bracket. clean chassis where bracket sits. apply sealer to back of bracket (to prevent corrosion). re-fit bolts holding bracket. fit shock right way up. Clean wheel and hub faces. Grease faces with copper grease. re-fit wheel Drop car back down. Tighten bolts. Repeat on other side. Get car geo'd (Although apparently you can get away with just having the toe set). I think thats pretty much it! IIRC

    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 suspension moves the more the damper resists. Most car damper units are single piece and unadjustable, thats to say that the settings are fixed. Obviously this is then a compromise between useage, e.g. smooth racetracks and potholed roads. Higher spec dampers offer adjustment via one or more knobs somewhere on the damper. The adjustments affect the bump and rebound characteristics of the unit. Bump is the resistance to movement as the damper is compressed, e.g. over bumps and racetrack kerbs, whilst rebound is the resistance to the damper uncompressing, usually after a bump. These settings are usually adjusted via knobs or screw adjusters somewhere on the damper. The number of adjusters depends on the type of damper; '1 way', '2 way', '3 way' etc. '1 way' units have a single adjuster that adjusts both bump and rebound together '2 way' units have individual adjusters for bump and rebound '3 way' units have individual adjusters for low speed bump movement (e.g. 'normal' road undulations), high speed bump movement (e.g. kerb strike etc) and rebound. The more complex units units also come in a selection of appearences, with an extra cylinder either 'piggy backed' on the main unit or remotely mounted on a hose. Finally, standard road dampers have fixed spring positions, whereas higher spec dampers have moveable platforms that allow rideheights to be adjusted. 1-way adjustable, single piece dampers with adjustable platforms are the most common choice in higher spec aftermarket dampers and a good cost/performance compromise for road and trackday use. The best combination of spring, damper (make and setting) and ride height depend on useage and driver preference, although there is a lot of advice to be had on the forums. Bilsteins Advantages 1 Relativly Cheap 2 Good Peformance for the Money 3 Good Ride Quality 4 Better than the OE fit Koni's 5 Can be set to adjust the ride height 6 Don't have to be declared as a Mod to insurance companies Disadvantages 1 A bit soft for hardcore track work 2 3 Koni Advantages 1 2 3 Disadvantages 1 2 3 Nitron Advantages 1 Some of the best suspension you can get for the Elise 2 3 Disadvantages 1 Expensive 2 3 Ohlins Advantages 1 Some of the best suspension you can get for the Elise 2 3 Disadvantages 1 Expensive 2 3 To get you started, here are a few settings to try (all counted from "full hard")... Gentle road / wet: -24, -28 Motorway: -20, -25 Fast road (runs): -18, -22 Dry track cold: -13, -18 Dry track hot: - 8, -12 Wet track: -15, -18 ... although obviously experiment with what suits your driving. In short, for slower & bumpier, the softer it has to be. You can adjust the front-rear bias usefully (relative settings). For damp and/or gusty conditions, soften the front more and it increases "feel" and stability - in effect dialling in a fraction more understeer which is a good for safety in such conditions. Then harden the front for more neutral handling, in effect maximising rear grip for when you can be more brutal with the power through the back wheels. Although there are allegedly 60 clicks on an Ohlins tube, forget about the softest 30 - it makes the car too bouncy. Gaz Advantages 1 Cheap 2 3 Disadvantages 1 Not good on Elises 2 3 Avo AVO fully adjustable shock and spring kit, adjustable damping rate, adjustable ride height platforms.

    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.
  17. 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. Young Brazilian Mario Moraes, the youngest series regular at age 21, has been outstanding on the road circuits this year with three top-ten finishes in his No. 32 KV Racing Technology Honda/Dallara/Firestone car. Moraes' last permanent road course race at Watkins Glen saw the talented youngster take fifth. Moraes missed last year's Mid-Ohio event due to the death of his father, but is expected to be a challenger when practice begins Friday. E.J. Viso comes off a sensational qualifying effort (sixth) at Edmonton in his No. 8 PDVSA — KV Racing Technology Honda/Dallara/Firestone machine. Viso, the 25-year-old Venezuelan, battled the three Penske drivers and the two Ganassi pilots in a "David vs. Goliath" role in the Firestone Fast Six qualifying. Viso, who scored his best road finish of eighth at Edmonton, enjoyed a strong testing run last week on the 2.25-mile Mid-Ohio track. Rounding out the KV Racing Technology lineup at Mid-Ohio is Formula One veteran Takuma Sato. The driver in the No. 5 Lotus — KV Racing Technology Honda/Dallara/Firestone car has the tough task of being a rookie with a new engine/chassis/team combination as well as tracks to learn. But, despite the learning curve, the Japanese star has made the Firestone Fast Six qualifying round at each of the first two permanent road circuits, Barber and Watkins Glen. Recent testing at Mid-Ohio will be a big help for Sato's debut at the track that is called the "physically roughest track to drive" on the series. DRIVER QUOTES: MARIO MORAES, #32 KV RACING TECHNOLOGY HONDA/DALLARA/FIRESTONE: " I am looking forward to returning to Mid-Ohio. Last year I had to pull out at the last minute, so it was good to be able to test there last week and get to know the track again. KV Racing Technology have given me a fast car the last two races so I am excited for this weekend and hope we can have another top-10 finish." E.J. VISO, #8 PDVSA — KV RACING TECHNOLOGY HONDA/DALLARA/FIRESTONE: "It is nice to go back to Mid-Ohio after our test. It was definitely pretty useful for KV Racing Technology. We managed to get through a lot of different testing programs and we believe we are in a better place for the race now. Mid-Ohio is always a good track, there's a nice mix of corners, altitude changes and definitely a pretty fun track to drive. I can feel we are going to have a good weekend." TAKUMA SATO, #5 LOTUS - KV RACING TECHNOLOGY HONDA/DALLARA/FIRESTONE: "It was so nice to have some testing last week, something we missed for a long time and it was the first time since Barber test back in February! We had many different things to try and evaluate which are almost impossible to be done over a race weekend due to the limited track time. So it was a useful day for us to complete and was successful. Mid-Ohio is a challenging road course with a few aggressive elevation changes which makes some corners completely un-sighted, narrow and fast but I enjoyed driving there. The field was again very tight but I feel very positive after the test so hopefully we will be competitive this weekend."
