Duncan Cowper set record at the Evo Magazine & MSV ‘How Fast’ Competition

Following on from a hugely successful summer of competing, which included a number of impressive appearances at the Litchfield GTROC / MLR Sprint Series and also at the Ten of the Best event held in York, Turbo Dynamics’ customer Duncan Cowper was back out on the track again over the weekend – this time at the Evo Magazine & MSV ‘How Fast’ competition.

The event, which took place at the Bedford Autodrome, saw over drivers compete with F1-style qualifying laps for the overall quickest time on the How Fast Leader Board. Duncan, who has secured a number of class victories at various events this year as well as recording the overall fastest time of the day at the Rockingham round of the Litchfield GTROC / MLR Sprint Series, was out to impress again in his highly tuned Hayabusa Dax Rush. The much loved Kit Car features a retrofitted historic 1980’s F1 Turbocharger which we upgraded to a bespoke specification back in February.

Sam and the team at Torque Developments International have been upgrading the engine management system and mapped the vehicle with their ‘Life Racing F88’ just days before the event. 

Not only did Duncan impress but he did so in impeccable style on the damp circuit, going on to secure a brand new event record with a hugely impressive time of 1:14:593, a staggering 8 seconds quicker than his closest competitor David Kibbler who came second with a time of 1:22:590. Former Formula Two racing champion Dean Stoneman came third in his highly tuned Porsche with a time of 1:24:308. 

Sam, of Torque Developments International, was track side at the event assisting Duncan and has commented on the company’s Facebook page: “We’re especially happy as this time was set with the cars power setting to only “medium” level!”
