    Like others have pointed out the Fiat looks like it could use more traction in the rear, but the wing and the tires are already huge, and I bet mr. Graversen has tried most things with the suspension as he has owned the car since 1980 if I understand things correctly.

    Perhaps 350hp is close to the limit for the X1/9 layout. Maybe shifting weight forward could help. But I bet he has done this already. Venturi tunnels underneath the rear?

    Kind of humiliating for brand new race cars to be equaled or beaten by a quarter-century old car. Very entertaining race.
