With any race car, if you're delayed on the grid or forced to do a really slow lap after racing around, there's always a risk that the reduced air flow will cause the car to overheat.
So at the very least, you should have an electric fan (push or pull - it doesn't matter).
As per my earlier post, my friend's car does not run a fan nor does any BMW race car I know of. For a track car, there's less chance of being stationary and not being able to turn the engine off without risking anything.
I know plenty of BMW ´s run on the track and they all NEED a fan.
I find it insane to suggest such nonsense to people to not run a fan at all.
Even if the fan doesn´t do anything while under good speed it´s a necessity at times,
It´s a safety device for the engine.
Fak it,if it gets hot ill get out and blow it
Just get out there and learn to drive the car as it is then, when you reach the cars limits then think about making it go quicker.
Thats my advice.
