With Jim’s expert touch, the Heasman’s S14 produced maximum power (380kw) at the safest levels given it was a freshly built engine. Check out Heasmans Road to World Time Attack 2014 here. We love
Driver safety is first and foremost for any good race team so the decision was made to install an on-board fire suppression system.
