Reason: More pics
Hi Im intrested in getting into a formula car in the price range you are looking for but my biggest concern is being able to fit I am 6'3 210 I know I can mold the seat but what size is the current driver? and any opinion on fitting
I'm 5'-8" and 180 and have the seat blocked up 3" and forward 2" and can just see over the cowl, the car has the extended roll hoop for taller drivers but 6'-3" might be a stretch, the issue being top of your legs and the U/S of the steering wheel. I know this car was raced in Pro F2000 with a driver over 6', I met him but don't know his exact height. Attached is a pic of me in the car and you can see how short I look.
One thing you need to be careful of if you are tall is that you have the required clearance in case of roll over. Tracks will place a solid bar over the roll hoop to the bar over the steeing wheel. If your helmet does not clear this bar by 1" to 2" you will be pulled off of the track(sorry, I can't remember the correct height, I haven't raced for 5 years. I know this from experience. I had a reynard at the time and only had 1/2" clearence. One of the stewarts checked me prior to the race and pulled me off the grid. Check the GCR for exact clearance.
LouM, It would seem the that Stewart you mentioned (bless his pea-pickin' heart) "owes you a race" if you didn't get to run. Good luck arranging that...
IMHO he misinterpreted the rule by taking the questionable illustration (fig. 18) pg 190, in APPENDIX I, in the roll cage section as his reference.
If you go to the GCR formula car category specs 9.1.1 pgs. 221 & 222 you will see that there is a 5cm distance from top of roll hoop to top of drivers helmet or 1.9685"--hence the 2" rule. There is no specific measurement for the "broom stick test" (also noted on the illustration on pg 222.
Thunder Bay has an International airport served by the two largest Canadian carriers, most connections are through Toronto or a regional flight from Minneapolis. If you are interested we can talk about delivery.
The guy that bought it will be racing at BIR, you were talking to him at the last race his name is Mark, he was in a FF Crossle
I'm working on converting my Toyota from GT3 to F prod and will be seeing you next season at BIR, RA & Blackhawk,
