Finding the right carburation mix is not an art, it’s a science. With Mark Ffrench of Tillotson Racing we went through all the operations that they do during every racing weekend to help teams and drivers to get the most from their carburettors.
Circuito Internazionale di Napoli, Sunday morning. The first round of the CIK-FIA OK, OK Junior and KZ European championships is almost finished. Drivers are ready to race the last heats before the final race, but the Tillotson Racing’s stand is still a busy place.
Tillotson Racing provides technical support and services at the race circuit to both OK & OK Junior Categories. Approximately 65% of OK drivers and 35% of OK Junior drivers use Tillotson equipment currently.
What is the weekly schedule like for Tillotson at a CIK FIA European Event?
“Our weekend starts before the event itself, when we have to organise the delivery of carburettors, spare parts and equipment to the track. We arrived at the track on Tuesday to set up our awning and prepare our stand and service area. The start of the event is usually our busiest time. Teams and drivers will be awaiting the delivery of new orders and they will also expect us to collect any carburettors which will need to be serviced before practice. Wednesday, Thursday and Friday will mostly consist of servicing and re-kitting carburettors along with optimising their performance through configuration and setting changes. Saturday and Sunday can be a little more relaxed as most carburettors have been prepared and optimised for racing. On Sunday after finals our awning, equipment and service area is packed up for transportation to the next event!”
