WRGB Prep Work

As with any event there is a certain amount of prep work needed before the event, but WRGB requires an extra amount of prep work. Below is the list of all major jobs that need doing between now and 9th October where we will be at the WRGB Media day, which we will be using as a final shakedown and test session as well as the chance to show just how fast a Micra can go to some media types!

One area of development this week has been discussions around suspension settings. Last years event was our first ever forest stage rally, so all settings were just guess work and to be honest there didn’t seem to be a lot of grip at all! 

So after some research and discussions the key area of development and testings before the event will focus on using ‘softer’ anti-roll bars (ARB’s) or even try no ARB’s at all. Updates on this will follow….
