325e no start after Mosport

Booo hoo for me.

Great day of racing at Mosport GP track Friday. The Falken 615Ks are a phenomenal tire.

Pulled the car in to the pits to get ready for the last session of the day when there was a no start. Have fuel, no spark.

Just tried a few things (Thanks Marcus and Rudi), but it looked like the inevitable so I pulled the inspection plate to find the reference pin broken off.

Moved everything aside, in a few days going to pull the trans to get at the flywheel.

Maybe now is the time to put in the 2.5L motor? Anybody have one for sale?

LOL... no kidding.

Yes, it was the reference pin. I found it at the bottom of the inspection cover.

$350 - $450 at the GP track.

$275 - $350 at the DDT track.

Do the DDT first. Trust me.
