Roskilde KTI
HMS - Historisk Motorsport - Test day

12. april 2008

Historic Racing Star-driver Jørgen Klitholm is back in the yellow Alfa Romeo 2000 Spider. After a full year of absence the Århus-based driver decided to enter the car once again. The first venue is, as always, the spring testday at the FDM test ground near Roskilde.

Klitholm had to rise early for the 400 km drive across the country. Søren Bærholm came over from Odense with Gert Sterner and Claus Larsen, while Per Einarsson and Anton Norup came from Copenhagen.

The car performed well. During the winter it was prepared at Alfaspecialisten in Esbjerg, and the instrumentation had been sorted - well, almost. The water temperature guage didn't work and in combination with a faulty cooling fan, this resulted in severe over-heating, and a premature departure for Klitholm.

But the engine sang well and the car ran good and fast. Very promising for the up-comming season.

ITR will have to enter an Audi racer one day.
Klitholm arrives too late for the driver briefing and the team has to unload the racer right away. The new Land-Rover towcar did a good job and looked real neat The new engine is now running on it's third year. It still develops a strong pull and it has a nice note to it as well
The HMS scrutineer makes a note about a minor detail in the boot holding the safety petrol tank The engine is checked as well. No comments were made
The Spider has recieved reinforced headlight fairing mounts. They are rather expensive and Klitholm wouldn't want to loose them in an accident The newly refurbished interior of the Spider has returned to original configuration.
