So the MERCENARY Superlight went drag racing last Sunday. Nothing broke, blew up or fell off and it ran a 12.5 at 106 mph which was what we were hoping for, so it was a pretty successful mission!
The chassis worked great, it was docile on launch and stable at speed and the brakes were more than adequate. All we really wanted from the motor was that it stayed together so we could test the chassis so that was good too.
So the plan now is to lose some more weight (bike and pilot!) and to fit a turbo and develop the motor for next year.
A big thanks to Trev for driving and coaching and thanks to Noel for pit support and taking all the photos.
