Here is the September update from Daytona Sportscars.

*the new 7 litre engine build is in progress, should be about 2 more weeks till it is done.
*There are new I class rules, we can go down to a 2:06 and can have 120 of fuel capacity
*the fuel tank in the Daytona is coming out to increase its capacity by removing the capacity limiting balls.
*the Viper is running at the last state round of the year at Phillip Island this weekend. Feel free to drop by and say Hi, we are in garage 8.
*We will be deciding on the drivers for the test day next Saturday, I wont name names, but here is s list of some of the different drivers experiences
*State level Sportscar racer
*State level sports Sedan racer
*Production car racer
*IPRA Racers
*Porsche cup car racers
*international endurance racing
*formula V racing
*Formula Ford Racing
*86 series
*Time Attack
*944 racing
*Aussie driver search finalist
*Australian formula ford
*National Carrera cup series

Basically we have a real variety of experiences across most of australian circuit racing, which is great.

It is going to be difficult to trim the list down to only 3/4 guys from this list for the test day.

I hope one of them is Jordan.

So Jamie, has Brad started talking to you about the purple stripes yet?

I assumed "Formula V" stood for "Formula Van". Aka The Maverick.

no, no Jordan, and no Mav either!

We haven't discussed colour schemes yet, but I suspect both cars will primarily keep they white with blue stripes scheme.

We finished the final round of the state series over the weekend, finished 2nd for the event and 2nd for the year.

We had the pace to beat the Audis and Lambos this year, but didnt have the luck go our way, so one of them got us...

Preparations for the 12 hour on the Viper have begun today.

Mav's not too tall he's just too fat but then again I can't talk because not only am I too tall but I'm too fat also :lol:

Bad luck about the weekend Jamie, good luck on the prep for the Viper (and Daytona).

We have finally trimmed down our driver selection list to 6 drivers for the 3 remaining seats.

We have specifically selected the high end local racers, even though we did have options on some more experienced racers.

We have a test day booked for the 23rd of November at Phillip Island, and each driver will get 2 X 10 minutes sessions in each of the 2 cars.
From this day, the final 3 drivers will be selected. Looking at the list of drivers, I cannot really tell who is going to be selected. Each of the drivers has their own strengths, so it will be a difficult day.

The Daytona engine for the test day will be an older 7 litre, as the race engine is still being assembled.
The Viper will run the same 8.4 litre V10 through the test and the 12 hour itself, as we are still well under the engine's rebuild hours.

The crew for this years event is still to be confirmed, so there is still plenty to do. One of the main things I have to do is to design the team (and possibly retail) shirts for the event. The team shirts will need to show both the cars and some sort of catch line for the event.

any suggestions? something like this.
Where 6 litres is just not enough
The big Bangers are back at the Mountain
Daytona Sportscars 12 hour team, the home of horsepower


Anyhow, the hard work is just starting, the preparations are in full swing...

How about

When 300 down Conrod isnt fast enough -as a reference to the Daytona hitting 307

I'm liking your last suggestion Jamie, Daytona Sportscars-The home of horsepower

I think this is such a great initiative to get behind an Australian entry for the race- hopefully others will see too.

Jamie and Team Daytona have their driver shoot out at PI tomorrow and should be in a position to announce their 12 hour driver line-ups early next week.

The Driver selection test day has been completed in the sunshine of Phillip Island with both of the Daytona Sportscars 12 hour entries.
A very productive day was had, and the driver line up will be announced shortly.
