well, it would be nice to look under that bonnet..... What I am saying is that WRC cars have boost all the time..
It would indeed be interesting to have comments from people on this forum on the car.
Here is a bad view of the engine.
They claim to have had focus on getting god exit out of slow speed corners.
This is the 2011 specification Ford RS200 to be driven by Mark Rennison built to do pikes peak by Peter Bennett and the boys at MDV. The engine has been built specifically to accelerate out of the slow speed corners of pikes peak by Geoff Page Racing. The engine is a 2.4L BDTE.Brake’s are the latest from alcon,Suspension is Black Art Designs Ltd 3 way adjustable remote canister units. The turbo has been built by Garrett in USA and runs a specific altitude compressor. The engine management system has been built specially by Life racing systems. The pistons within this engine were made by J-E also in the USA. A new state of the art crank shaft has been produced for the massive torque generated from this engine and both crank and rods are designed by GPR. This engine makes in excess of 920Nm of torque between 5000 and 5500RPM and approximately 900 horsepower."
" Any information or questions you can contact Geoff Page.at email@example.com"
nitrous is added to boost the power up to 1150hp.
All i can say is that that intercooler looks small compared to what 900hp cars and lower usually has.
Petter Solberg will attend in 2012 btw.
