The Enhanced Performance, Good Cars Only, Gabo Solutions, STANMECH Technologies, Melanoma Canada #77 Formula Mazda Team had an engine low oil pressure problem that was discovered at the BARC Canadian Touring Trophy Races at Canadian Tire Motorsports Park on the 23rd of July. Hopefully, we caught the problem in time before we seriously damaged the engine. In the meantime, we were able to expedite our spare race engine from our engine builder just in time to install it during the period after the BARC race weekend. Over the course of the next 7 days, we installed the new engine, started it so we could seat the apex seals in the combustion chambers and we were able to successfully run the engine up to water temperature, oil temperature and oil pressure.
We are now in great shape for the VARAC Peter Jackson Races to be held at Shannonville Motorsports Park on the 6th August!! Make sure to follow us for our next race report!!
