this weekend i made the new under floor coverings for the bug the old one was broken. the painter did his work so i can mount the new fenders, front spoiler and front hood on the car. so the race bug looks much more better than last year. i hope that last parts for the gear box come soon in house that we can complete it. the first race is on 16.april on red bull racecircuit in spielberg. the time runs very fast and next week comes the 1303rs bug from christian stelzer to me to make an better front suspension in his bug.

Cool! That under tray looks vaguely familiar to mine ;)

I see you're showing off you hydraulic lift / 'Hebesystem' nicht? :D

Hello Friends the racebug is complete ready for the first run at 16.4.2011 on the new red bull a1 racetrack in spielberg. on friday we had 2 dyno-runs with the beetle to controll, couse last year we had trouble with the fuel pump, now it"s all ok with the new porsche 964 pump. so we hope that the two ohc bugs runs well.

She's too pretty to race!!! Hey, do you know much about the development of the rear wing you run? Was there any wind tunnel testing? What is your feel about the difference it makes?

Hello jason,

the rear spoiler is not tested in an wind tunnel. he is build by rolf holzapfel with help from an aerodinamic specialist who works by sauber mercedes. i"ll think the idea and the build from this spoiler is 15 years old. to drive in high speed with this spoiler is much more better than without.

What a great car you got there!

I created a page where I try to explain how such a roofspoiler works. On this page I think I used a picture of your car. Is that allright with you? If not, I'll take it off the page.

See this page: Roofspoiler explanation

It's funny, because I also use some Mercedes pictures to explain it. So there's a link with your story. :)

to use the foto from my car is ok, if you need an other picture say it how you need it ill take it and send it to you.

Awesome! I wish I could race against other bugs too in my country. I raced my 1303 against some classic Mini's. I was the only bug in the race.

By the way, those nice front spoilers, fenders..etc on the race bugs in your photos, are they available to buy or home-made?
