Hunn keen to push Mazda’s potential
Danny Hunn remains positive about his still new Mazda RX-8 National Hot Rod, despite having a torrid time in the opening meetings of the year.
Although Hunn took a seventh spot in a heat in the car, which has a new shape for National Hot Rods, a spin and other incidents contrived to keep him out of the places the rest of the evening.
He also struggled at Hednesford last weekend, with a spin dropping him back in the heats and 16th in the final.
“We’ve been unlucky,” said Hunn. “The car feels good and it has potential. [Engine tuner] Carl Boardley says there’s more to come out of the engine and [car builder] Sonny Howard reckons there are more tweaks to come too.”
Despite the car still being in its development stages, Hunn said that he is likely to play his joker in the next round at Northampton on March 25.
“I know some people are watching to see how we get on before they place their orders with SHP, but everybody does seem keen for the Mazdas to do well,” added Hunn.
