Default Vulcan Update

Well what can we say what a cracking days racing for the Vulcan team. We arrived Friday evening. The team were joined by Tony, Chris and Sam to assist for the weekends racing. Tony (who spanners on MTEC Ferrari team and others) Chris is ex Redbull and Sam is one of the Lunar students that has worked on the car in the off season.

The car arrived fitted with new wheels and Silverstone tyres for this round and has been restictered. The repair had been carried out to the rear from Brands.

A good social night was had by all with other racers in the paddock and relaxed atmosphere lead to a good nights sleep.

Saturday morning soon arrived the car was set up for qualifying, due to Dan and Peter sharing the car Peter was to quailfy out of session and therefore start last in race 4 and Dan to start race 11.

Dans qualifying went well the car performed really well and tyres worked with good grip in damp conditions. P6 was the result to some cracking driving with a 209.47.

Race 4 - Peter lined up at the back of the grid of P23, the lights went out and he was away acouple of places from the start and as the laps went on Peter moved through the pack, with 4 cars in one lap being passed. After a sterling drive Peter finished the race in P11 with a fastest lap of 208.73. On returning to the pits Peter was greated by the team who were made up with the result as he finished 2nd in class.



Race 11 - Dan llined up P6 with the V8's ahead of him, Dave Brooke was set for a rematch from Brands and the tension was building. The lights went out and they were away, 2.5 V6 vs 3.9 V8 the cars all got away cleanly and the battle ensued. Dan managed to get past Dave but had him firmly fixed to his bumper for a lap. Dan drove out of his skin and pushed the car harder than it has been pushed before. he managed to pull out a small lead of a few car lengths chasing down the pack infront. One of the V8's had a small off and Dan managed to get in front and have a buffer between hime and Dave putting Dan in P2 for the final lap Dan was chasing down Ollie with a chain of V8's chasing. 2nd overall in the race 1st in class and fastest lap together with driver of the race what a result.

So what can we say, we love Oulton Park what a cracking weekend bring on Silverstone.

Chris Bray (reining MG Trophy Champion) in his ZR190: 1:58.517 (Race1) 1:57.450 (Race2)

The fastest ZR160, Paul Streather, in the Trophy series did: 2:03.390

I'm surprised this ZS180 wasn't quicker given the powerful V6 and more sophisticated double wish bone suspension. But good show none the less and a good result.

Because its standard for the class it runs in, and is 1145 kilo's to be fair they are a cracking car but a ZR will be quicker especially as all the trophy cars are now 170bhp is with shimmed suspension etc. We need longer or oval tracks for the v6 as we never get into 5th. However would not change it I love the car. On slicks however the car is transformed would then be good to compare to Bray's times.

We are talking to a few sponsors at present which may allow us to buy a donar car and cage which would mean a rental car could be offered more quickly.

Have to say once you have done your first race it becomes very addictive 24-38 cars fighting to get to the first corner is magic, makes track days seem a little tame.

Default MG Live - PBIC round 5 & Enduro Race

Silverstone

Well what a weekend, we arrived on Thursday night and set up the garage in preparation for the weekend. Friday morning and brilliant sunshine, the car was prepared the new air filter systems was fitted.

Practise one
Went well with 3 laps completed before a quick tweak to the dampers then a red flag, we got back on track for
one flying lap 2.25.

Practise two
Went better as well managed a full session with a quick tweak to the dampers and Dan got the car into the 2.19s.

The team then had a chance to fully enjoy the MG Live event with Saturday being race free for us so some final preparation for Sunday.

Practise 1 - PBIC
We suffered from a electrical gremlin as we had no pulse on the injectors so the team set about isolating the problem which turned out to be a short on a sensor which tripped ECU. However once found we had the car running. This however meant we missed out allocated practise and had to start last on the grid (which is never a bad thing as I enjoy this)

Race - PBIC
Due to a bad crash and resulting fire the race was red flagged after the second corner, so we awaited the restart. With 36 cars on the grid the run to the first corner was going to be good. The ZS had a flying start in the first lap I went from 36th to 19th as everybody had cold tyres I took the view to push as hard as possible to have a chance later in the race. I then spent the remainder of the shortened race chasing the front pack and had a good battle with a couple in which we exchanged places leaving me 17th at the flag just 0.643 sec behind 16th place car. The team was very pleased with the result as I finished 17th over all from 36, and 8th from 16th in class. So I have now 7 race laps at Silverstone under my belt and a best lap of 2.26.

Two Driver Enduro
Dan and I were really looking forward to this event the grid was set by the MGCC based on the cars times from the weekend. Clearly we were going to face some stiff competition as we started 22nd out of 32 runners. The car was ready and as we arrived to the holding area the skies above Silverstone decided to drop. We are running full race tyres which are ok in damp conditions but not standing. However at least half the grid faced the same problem. 2 laps behind the safety car and then we formed up on the grid. Go Go Go well scrabble scrabble scrabble would be more correct, lots of short shifting worked and we had a good start, however after maggots the track conditions to bridge made the car very hard work as I changed into 4 th on hanger straight you could see nothing but spray but all good fun. We managed to hold station for the first part of the race trying to find a dryer line. However we had decided not to go to full wets as the rain eased after 10 minutes. Dan jumped into the car and pushed really hard on his out lap, with 10 minutes to go the conditions improved a dry line started to appear. Thanks to Dan's valiant efforts and some 4 wheel drifting the car started to move forward. As a result we managed to cross the line 13th out of 32 runners. Dan's best lap was a 2.42 in very wet conditions.

So what a weekend, good to see a lot of visitors into our pit garage, some great racing and support from the team. We will be uploading in car video and photos on the team website shortly.
