Blown engine.

It was a great Open Track event at the Dato' Sagor track in Kg. Gajah and all was well until I blew my engine within the first few hours of going on track.

I had so much fun chasing a Mini Cooper on track that I didn't realise what was going wrong. Sadly, as I came to pit, the engine stalled and would not restart.

The Silver Banana is now with Han and checks are ongoing to find the cause.

Get well soon my dear. We'll do better next at the next track excursion.

It is in fact an opportunity for those with a deeper pockets.

The trouble is that I didn't want to change anything... In fact, I'd just changed a lotta new parts and a COMPLETE set of new seals and bearings!

Down lo.... I hope to hear good news from Han soon. I'll be in touch bro.
