Yehaa! - the MS9 engine for the MS11 is now running, and Liaz has sent me a little video of it, on the dyno. I really hope he used earplugs while filming that!

You have now  :-)

I am currently without Internet-connection (this is written (ab)using my neighbours open WiFi) so in my hurry to put the clip on the gallery, I forgot to check/change its permissions. sorry

Crank up that volume, and listen!   (the video-side is not fantastic, but the SOUND ... mmm )

The lovely MS9 engine is now fitted to the MS11 chassis !

Zul Racing have sent me another batch of pictures, and I can only say it all looks absolutely stunning. The car, the garage (with two Matra's) and the craftsmanship.

More pictures have arrived. They are (as usual) at the bottom of the gallery:

   http://www.matrasport.dk/Cars/Sports-Formula/Stories/Zul-Racing/index.html

These show the extra support Zul Racing have invented for the extended rollbar - The owner/driver is obviously taller than racingdrivers from the 1960'ies :-)

It looks good - and in fact quite "original".

Beautiful exhaust now fitted, as is the extra support for the (extended) rollbar.

Shakedown tests are now expected to happen mid April.

More interesting photos! I like the water pump, but just the thought of hot water running down my behind if something breaks!!? No, safety was certainly not a subject in the 60's!

Don't forget you are already sitting IN the fueltank, so to speak - so in the grand view of things, a hot bath may not be the worst that could happen :-)

Besides, waterpumps or their seals never leak .. ahem! - sorry, couldn't resist that Anders Smiley

nosecone is fitted and apart from wheels and stickers, the car is now finished - check the last few pictures at:
    http://www.matrasport.dk/Cars/Sports-Formula/Stories/Zul-Racing/index.html

(I have made the gallery somewhat smaller and more manageable.)

and ! ... <drum roll> he now ALSO has a MS120 in the garage to restore. !
Will it ever end ?

No pictures of that yet, but rest assured they will arrive.

I would say the car looks finished now .. 6 new pictures of roll-out:

But just have a look at the parkinglot behind it on 2007_0424_085419 - it is turning into an industry...

It should even do 10.500 afaik ... giving some 370 hp :-)
You can see/hear the engine rebuilders video of it on the testbench here:

      http://www.matrasport.dk/Cars/Sports-Formula/Stories/Zul-Racing/Misc/MS9_Dyno_002.avi

I hope the owner will soon find the time, - then I'm off to Donnington :-)

BIG NEWS !!! - the MS11 will go for its shakedown test THIS WEEKEND 18-20 May at Donington Circuit, as part  of the GPlive event:

        http://www.gpliveuk.com/gplive-stars-cars/cars60s.asp

The MS9 and MS10 should also be there on display.

Rather short notice, but luckily I should be able to go on Saturday.
(Sunday I will be at the Duxford Airshow, - busy weekend.)

I/we should be able to meet up with Liaz & Co in the pit, so we can have a close-up experience of the MS11 test.

Anyone care to join me ? - somebody with a good DV camera please!
