New 2015 bumper mountings test at Wackersdorf
Scheduled to enter service on 1st January 2015, the new CIK bumper mounting will be tested this weekend at Wackersdorf in race conditions in the Academy Trophy. The implementation has been demonstrated with officials present, while at the briefing tomorrow the right attitude on the track will be detailed to avoid a drive-through.
Under the effect of a shock, the spoiler is effectively shifted rearwardly and mainly downwardly from its initial position. Then there is no other solution than to go to the pits to reposition it. Even before the process has been evaluated in racing, questions have popped up from all sides and there has been plenty of comments. Expect the first practice sessions and especially the first races on Saturday to show how it really works.
