So that didn’t go to plan ?

Sighting laps went well and bedded in the new brakes with Tom behind the wheel.
Then Tom went straight back out.
First two laps and all well then just as he changed down to third @ quarry, big loss of power and a huge plume of smoke streaming out the exhaust but kept it running in second gear.
So rather than delaying the session waiting for a recovery we made it back to the paddock on a red flag
So put car back on trailer and departed with our tails between our legs.

Really sorry to read this,do you think it is a failed seal.
I was looking forward to reading of a great day and lap records being broken.

Lol me too
first two laps Tom was saying there was a lot more top speed in the later Rev range than the previous engine then pop.

Strange as he was able to keep the engine running all the way around the track but he stalled it in the paddock.

I left it for an hour then started it to put on the trailer, it started instantly and freely revved with no misfire but the area was engulfed in smoke.

If anyone have encountered this let me know any remedies

No loss of oil.
It has the later oil breather on it and a Gready sump and baffle plate so I’m doubtful
I haven’t looked at it yet to see if there’s any oil in the intake.

My bet is on an oil burp.

Sounds identical to what happened to me with Ranjan's (now Chris's) car at Three Sisters.

That was a massive oil burb, even with a catch can, that we still haven't managed to pin down the cause.

Let’s hope so Dave
I don’t think my back and my vertigo could cope with another engine change.
I’ll hopefully take a look on Monday and keep you posted.
