ONE OF THE BIGGEST PROJECTS CDR HAVE UNDERTAKEN WAS A COMPLETE CHASSIS AND ENGINE REBUILD ON A VAN DIEMEN RF99 WITH A 2.0L FORD ZETEC ENGINE. THE CAR HAD MANY PROBLEMS THAT NEEDED ADDRESSING INCLUDING AN ISSUE WITH OVERHEATING.

THE CAR WAS REBUILT FROM THE GROUND UP AND EVERY MECHANICAL DETAIL WAS ADDRESSED TO IMPROVE PERFORMANCE AND RELIABILITY.

AFTER A TIGHT TIMESCALE, THE CAR WAS READY FOR IT'S FIRST RACE SINCE THE REBUILD AT THE SPA FRANCORCHAMPS CIRCUIT IN BELGIUM. IT MANAGED A FANTASTIC PODIUM FINISH IN IT'S CLASS, INCLUDING A 5TH AND 6TH PLACE FINISH OVERALL IN THE 46 CAR FIELD WHICH CONSISTED OF FASTER BIKE-ENGINED CARS.
