|HMS - Historisk Motorsport - Test day
22. april 2006
More than 50 cars turned up for the test-day in HMS held at the simple but spacious track at Roskilde KTI.
Into The Red Motor Racing grabbed the chance and met around Jørgen Klitholm and his yellow TC71 Alfa Romeo Spider. He and Claus Larsen arrived via Funen from Jutland for the 9 O'clock scrutineering, and Jørgen went directly onto the track for the first stint of the day.
The car hadn't really been tested, which resulted in a major oil-leak because the oil filler-cap came loose! And only to make things worse the breather-hose popped off during the second stint, and before the day was over the car was hauled onto the trailer with a damaged engine bearing - not due to a lack of oil, though!
So now the car is up for rapairs. But still - it's better to find out during testing than on a raceday.
