Despite all the efforts, all the preparations and especially the fantastic R-Box team (and of course I’m not talking about the crew) it didn’t go as we had planned. The energy crisis is not only manifesting itself in society but is also plaguing the R-Box team.
After a very hectic winter update, with some radical changes, we were of course very much looking forward to a first confrontation with the Haspengouw concrete strips.
For the observant media watchers it had been clear for some time that from now on Isidoor Smets will knit the notes together and that we decided to focus on the full M-Cup. Through Isidoor’s experience, the bar is indirectly raised a bit higher, even though it is not the intention to put more pressure on myself. And even though I don’t know anything about knitting myself, I’m going to do my utmost not to drop stitches.
If we are to believe everyone, the first time is always a bit special. Fortunately, the conditions were ideal, plenty of sun, bone dry and assisted by a very experienced co, Isidoor Smets, who stepped in last minute for Luc Geenen. Add to that a super nice car, 4 super mechanics and mega coach / cooking mom and numerous sympathizers, in short the perfect ingredients for a fantastic rally.
It has taken a while but what started almost 7 years ago with an open mind
and a bright white sheet resulted into an enthusiastic dynamic team with an
eye-catching E30 M3 group A that even will please any “non car” enthusiastic.
It has been quiet for a very long time on the R-Box site, this was on the one hand a very conscious choice and on the other hand we have been working very diligently on the car, service truck and other infrastructure, so that there was very little time left to add stories here.
Because we have now reached an important milestone, it might be nice to post something new again. GOOD news this time!!
Due to some extremely painful consecutive circumstances all fun was gone and it was time to put the BMW aside for a while…
It’s pretty easy to capture that we were looking forward to our first event with the M3 after almost 6 years of hard work.
Despite the enormous disappointment, we have to move on and as a famous soccer player quoted a long time ago “every drawback will have his advantage”.
In the mean time we are back in full force solving the issue and we banned those dark clouds forever to a desert island far from here.
For sure it will take a few months, but of course we have learned a lot so we will improve several things so that our car will become even more unique!
What went wrong …
The last few months it was extremely calm on our site. The main reason was a lack of time.
Fortunately it’s a different story for the car. The Beemer did progress a lot.

Happy reading !!
At least my new office looks quiet nice an I am pretty confident we will have a lot of fun here.
“Let the beast go !!”
The side protection on the Cobra seats together with the roll-cage blocks almost the complete access to the back.
Nevertheless, there is a way to do it, but it’s not easy and we have to practice a lot !
