A year later...

I can't believe it's been a yeah since my last post! The reason why it has been so long is that I've bought another Grantura Mk2 together with a friend which we are racing here in Denmark and in Sweden. The car was "almost race ready" when we bought it but never the less we have rebuild the engine and gearbox, fitted new fuel cell, new suspension bushings all over new shock and exchanged and improved a million little things that I can not remember right now.

Back to my first Grantura: Since my last post the chassis has been rebuild with a full roll cage and painted. The tubes have been tig welded instead of brazed as was originally my intension. I've fitted bronze bushing for the new trailing arms. The new torsion springs have been modified and fitted. I've received new SuperFlex bushings and AVO shock absorbers and currently all the suspension part are being fitted.

I hope to get a bit more time to work on this car and I’ll try make updates a little more frequently than yearly.
