Kenny was testing in William's IAME Shark last Saturday. One of the engines had a squeak coming from the clutch and then the other wouldn't start - I was convinced that it was seized, having seized one myself.

We all piled into the car to visit Steve at Shark. He looked over the engines and it was clear that one engine had over heated. Holding the barrel up to the light, scratched lines were clearly visible.

The engine that wouldn't start was just flooded. Now I know how to drain the engine.

So William heads into his last cadet race meeting with a powerful engine and a very good back up and I sleep better knowing that there isn't anything major to worry about.
