As the engine comes up on Boost for the first time the Exhaust temp rises and the heat resistant paint cannot withstand the temp and starts to smoke . The new combination produced 175bhp @ the wheels on 15psi Boost and E85 fuel.
2013 NSW Formula Vee Championship - Round 5 - Race 1
Start Position: 4th, Finish Position: 4th, Best Lap: 1:14.6014 (FL)
Location: Sydney Motorsport Park (North Circuit)
I had a collision on the first lap with #22 and fell back to 13th. I was
going to go deep into the corner and go around the outside while the others
were fighting over the inside, but #22 moved over to the outside and braked
sooner to take a different line and I got caught out. Completely my
fault... my stopping distance probably wasn't helped too much by an oily
rear disc caused by a failed rear axle bearing that we had just fixed.
This is my first year in any form of motorsport so don't be too critical ;)

First start of and Racing Formula Vee Engine in over 30 years
I bought a Formula Vee racing engine that had been built by Kenny Brown in
1978 but never started. It was locked it had gotten water in one cylinder
and I had to put new rings in that cylinder. I installed it in to a 60's
Sardini Formula Vee this is the first time I tried to start it. I later
found the fuel pump problem as a leaky fuel filter sucking air.

1st place, 1st time driving the Maloney Racing Mk 2.5 Lazer and 1st TT
event. Thanks Hughie for all the generous support!
This was my final set of laps which were good enough for 1st place that
weekend (after only getting to run the first day). I was only a couple
tenths off the lap record held by my friend Chris Elwell.
My main priority was to learn the limits of the car without incident.
(there are some laps where I was experimenting and not following a perfect
