STILLEN Targa Newfoundland: Competitive Day 1 of Racing – Photos and Wrapup

September 15, 2009

A fairly ordinary weather outlook greeted team STILLEN this morning for the kickoff of competitive racing for Targa Newfoundland 2009. Fortunately it didn’t manage to dampen their spirits too much and they laid into the first 8 stages of day 1 of 5 total days of racing.

Today they scored zero penalties for each stage, meaning they finished each inside the goal time and consequently, are in equal first position with three other top teams. That is, amongst two Subaru STis and a Porsche GT3RS in the Modern division.

It was not all rainbows however as the team spotted a micro hole in one of the CV boots that could cause a lubrication failure. When changing out the CV boot they found the part they received was the wrong type. They plugged the hole and the boot has so far been ok the entire day so fingers crossed they either receive the right boot and change it out or it holds together in a plugged state. No doubt they’ll be keeping a close eye on it.
