For the first round we have had 5 entries from 5 prominent companies. Their engineers have taken our crate engine and created a thoroughbred track machines to race around Zolder.
Our team has tested each and every car around the track and have timed the best lap. Each car has also been checked against our regulations and with varied results we have collected the following data:
@gridghost Scarab - They presented the Aurora Proto. It set a reasonable time of 2.04.66 around the Zolder track and had a modern approach with it’s aerodynamic body and precision downforce. It’s lightweight design meant for a great track performance. It also had great exterior designing which turned the heads of our testing department.
@HighOctaneLove Bogliq - They presented the Dolphin 1800GT which set a lap of 2.06.53 around the track. With styling of the last decade it certain didn’t look at modern as the likes of Scarab, but it still stood up to the modern competition with it’s sleek lines and dual exhaust.
@Lastgameking SPE - They presented the T-150F, setting a lap of 2.05.66 it certainly wasn’t slow, however with 1940’s heavy steel and a rear engine layout it was a bit of a handful to drive according to our test driver. Also it suffered from a peculiar issue with the rear wheels where they petruded from the bodywork which raised tire wear, but even so it surprisingly wasn’t that slow.
@JohnWaldock JHW - These guys presented the 1800X which had the feel of an old saab but had a perky transmission and plenty of downforce, It set a lap of 2.05.91 and had moderate downforce. It also had a pleasant interior with plenty of room and came to us in a stunning white finish. One of our team n particular stuck with the car and even sent through an order for one.
@AirJordan Smooth - Finally for the Minisun SR, this set a lap of 2.00.73 which was the best of all entries. This was thanks to a small body and stiff chassis design. The Smooth engineers must be proud. However it required a rather small driver thanks to a minuscule cockpit. This meant that it lost drivability on the road making it’s sole purpose a track car.
This makes @AirJordan the winner of AEC Round 1. However they has stated their unavailability to host the next round which means the responsibility falls to @gridghost. You will have 48 hours to submit your round with the next track, engine and any requirements of the round. If you are also unavailable please message me as soon as possible so other arrangements can be made. Finally if you do not post your round within 48 hours I will give the responsibility to the next runner up.
