Anyone got anymore info on the possible 12c crash at the ring today?some info on www,
It seems to have been an industry day were the 12c was going for a fast lap ,apparently it had easily taken a carrera gt earlier on in the day,before going for a fast one,could be just rumour though,cant find anything else on the net.
hope everyone is ok
Interesting that this car has carbon ceramic brakes and the carbon fibre turning vanes (first car I have seen with the carbon vanes). I assume that we know it is a factory car and not a customer car?
factorycar john,no customercars yet,and its a 2010 car,but it you are right ive never see any carbon vanes,maybe pelton25 might have a picture of one??
