Incredible weather and great track conditions marked the January Dave Murray test days at Sebring International Raceway.
BC RaceCars Inc. was fortunate to have the combination of Andrew Romocki’s TA Mustang and professional driver Mike Skeen along with unlimited track time to test and tune. We were able to evaluate about 30 different adjustments, ranging (but not limited to) camber, wing, toe, shocks, anti-squat, pressures, etc. and ended up with a super fast Sebring set-up.
We have worked with Mike Skeen before, yet his talents simply keep amazing us! The feedback that he is able to provide and his ability to get the job done in a few laps really speeds up testing, not to mention his incredible pace! Thanks Mike.
Also a big thanks to Andrew, for providing the platform and having the foresight to hire the best of the best. The proof is in the pudding, Mike went 1 second faster than the Trans-Am qualifying pole lap time of 2014, with traffic and on well-used tires. His theoretical best was some 3.5 seconds faster!! See link below for some in-car video, we were evaluating a compression change on the shocks, ultimately making the car too loose:
After a few more adjustments:
We are super excited about the Sebring TA race in a few weeks time, BC RaceCars will have 3 of its cars running, Andrew with his TA Mustang and Steve Kent Jr. and Harry Steenbakkers in their BCR built TA2 Camaros.
