18-21 April 2003 RaceTech has a stand (Hall D Stand 21) at the Elmia Custom Motor Show in Sweden. We are showing our Lada powered racing ESTfield and look forward to meeting all interested car builders and enthusiasts.
27 April 2003 The season's first timed practice day for ESTfield owners at the Pärnu Circuit.
31 March 2003 After several days hard work fitting the EFITEC electronic injection and ignition system to a BMW powered 1800cc ESTfield and setting it up on the rolling road, the car is back with an astounding 37 extra bhp and 32 Nm more torque. (130.3 bhp @ 5750 rpm and 171 Nm @ 4750 rpm). That is an increase of 39.6% in bhp and 23% in torque. And this over and above our original very respectable result of 93.4 bhp at the wheels for the BMW 4 cyl engine  running with the Lada twin choke carb (this exceeded the manufacturer's figure for power output at the flywheel for instance). And the cost ... roughly 70 Euro per bhp. We are certainly surprised and impressed. Click here to view a separate page on the EFITEC system including  power and torque curves for the BMW engine, and a price list. We will be adding more info as soon as it becomes available.
26 March 2003 Engineers from RaceTech will be taking a 1800cc BMW engined ESTfield to Sweden to install EFITEC's (also known as ProSpark) electronic injection and ignition system. This after-market high-precision electronically metered single-rail injection and solid-state ignition system can be manually set up and tuned without the use of any specialised equipment; which makes it an ideal choice for non-standard engine applications such as the ESTfield. In the  manufacturer's experience the system can boost power output by around 25%. We will be monitoring the results on our own engine and will post the results as soon as we have them. RaceTech's engineers will be given training in fitting and tuning the electronic system so that future installations can be carried out at our own factory in Tartu.
March 2003 RaceTech has begun production of a 5" wider chassis for bigger clients. Both steel and aluminium chassis are currently under construction and will use the Volvo 740 rear axle.
19-23 March 2003 The ESTfield V8 is on display at the Tallinn Motor Show "Motorex 2003".

24. August 2002

ESTfield Owners' Club race meeting
6 ESTfields turned out for the race, 5 raced and one (V8 ESTfield) was unable to start due to engine problems.

23 August 2002.

ESTfield owners training session on the long circuit at Pärnu.
4 cars were present and 3 of them were driven on the circuit. On Friday the best lap time of 1:08.71 was set by Urmas Kiviselg in his 1.8 litre BMW powered ESTfield, corresponding to an average speed of 120.51 km/h, second was Felix Paves with 1:09.09 with the 2.0 litre Alfa Romeo powered car - average speed 119.84 km/h, and third was Indrek Teppan with the Chevy V8 powered ESTfield, with a time of 1:14.10 and an average speed of 111.74 km/h.

Since the ESTfield Chevy engine was still being run-in revs were kept below 4000, however, Indrek noticed that the engine wasn't pulling properly and closer inspection revealed that the 2nd cylinder pushrods were broken. Since the necessary spares could not be found in time, the car was unable to race on Saturday.

14th August 2002

Pärnu circuit training day and the first ESTfield owners meeting this year.
The Pärnu circuit team organised a training day for motorcycles and cars. For the first time 10 ESTfields arriving under their own power from all across Estonia attended the meeting. There was a chance to compete, set up the cars, and share know-how. In the evening everyone got together in the Aleksandri Pub to bring the test day to a close and to endorse the EHOC (ESTfield Happy Owners Club) statute. It was decided to participate on the 23rd and organise a Club race on the 24th on the Pärnu circuit.
At the same time we also plan to demonstrate the circuit racing capabilities of the Chevrolet V8 powered ESTfield.

10th August 2002

The unveiling of a new Chevrolet V8 powered ESTfield took place at theRaadi Drag Race
Unfortunately we could not compete due to an oil leak. Despite the efforts of the team we were not able to find or solve the problem. Nevertheless the cars immense competitive potential became apparent. We still need to find proper drag tyres and a LSD.
Later inspection revealed a bolt-hole drilled through the sump - we put a bolt in place and the oil problem was solved.
All help and suggestions are welcome regarding the sourcing of suitable wheels and tyres and an Opel Senator LSD.
The car will certainly be seen again at the next Raadi drag meeting in September.

10th August 2002

We achieved first place in the 2 litre class at the Raadi Drag Race with our 1.6 litre Lada powered ESTfield.
Our time of 14.44 for the 1/4 mile was clearly unsatisfactory for our car, since we have achieved times a second faster (13.56). The reason lay in insufficient preparation. The car also had unsuitable wheels and tyres for the event. We will prepare better for the September race and have set ourselves a target of less than 13 seconds.
The organisers of the event yet again had problems registering the ESTfield. We were "inadvertently omitted" from the 2 litre class, but were fit for the open class of over 3 litre cars. After some confusion before the final runs we were at last allowed to compete in our rightful class.
In general we were satisfied with the organisation of the event. Pärtelpoeg and Team should accept the recommendations given by the Finnish specialists concerning the organisation of the event. A big thanks to him and the team.

11 July 2002

The new record was set in a Lada powered 1.6 litre ESTfield, and the average speed was 138.07 km/h. The result was recorded on the official lap timing equipment and was confirmed by the competition office.

The first international race meeting in the Baltic Cup series for ESTfields took place in Riga, the capital of Latvia, on the weekend of the 4th and 5th of May. Two cars assembled in Latvia took part: chassis 012 - built into a car called LOTA, and chassis 031 assembled by the Arcers Club which was completed just the previous evening. Two cars built by RaceTech in Estonia also took part: RaceTech's race prepared car A004 (chassis 010) driven by our test driver Indrek Teppan, and the Alfa Romeo powered car A003 (chassis 008), with owner Felix Paves at the wheel, driving in the STREET class.
03.May RaceTech's latest project car - a 6 cyl 2.0l BMW engined ESTfield (car A008 chassis 009) passed the relevant technical inspections and was registered at the Tallinn Vehicle Registration Centre. Its new owner is a businessman from Tartu and we hope to be seeing it in regular use shortly. [Some pictures of the car from the Tallinn motorshow 2002.]
