Lee Crawford - Engine Inspection Report - 07/06/21

As a result of one or two rumours going around the British F2 paddock with regards to Lee Crawford’s engine: given it was due for a refresh after the last Scarborough meeting I decided to strip and measure his engine - number N738114419 - which is the engine he has used all season at Brands Hatch, Donington & Scarborough.

The engine was stripped by Tony Baker and myself (John Smith) to either confirm or dispense with the rumours I’ve heard in the paddock. Our findings are:

- The Throttle Bodies & Injectors are untouched and standard, although the second butterflies are locked open (which is legal to do).

- The inlet & exhaust cams both have standard lift - as checked against two sets of standard basic cams (remember we only check the lift as the duration is free).

- The bore is 67mm. Stroke is 42.5 mm. Which = 599.3 cc

Therefore both Tony Baker and myself confirm this engine is totally legal as per our British F2 Championship rules.

I may also confirm that a seven speed gearbox is totally legal in our rules as everything below the head gasket including the head gasket is free as per the ACU handbook.

Anglesey - 26th & 27 June - CANCELLED

Unfortunately, owing to ongoing Covid-19 restrictions in Wales, the Wirral 100 Club have had no option other than to cancel this meeting. Both the A.C.U. / F.S.R.A. British F2 Sidecar Championship and the F.S.R.A. Pre-Injection Sidecar Championship were due to have rounds of their series at this event.

The next rounds will therefore be at Mallory Park on the 10th and 11th July.
