TBR13 featured the first carbon fibre monocoque, using a hybrid construction to achieve an 160kg R2R weight with excellent torsional stiffness. Additionally, further advancements in our carbon work were achieved, with this being the first of the Team Bath Racing cars to feature carbon wheels manufactured in-house. With refined front and rear wings and a powertrain featuring the same Aprilia 2-cyl engine, this car produced a peak power of 43kW @ 9250 rpm, and a peak torque of 57 Nm from 4500-5500 rpm. Unfortunately, the aprilia engines had by this point suffered wear from several competitions, and at both competitions we attended we were plagued by engine issues which ruined our chances of success.
