Default MGCC Cadwell Race Report

Friday evening and the Vulcan team landed at Cadwell Park on of the best circuits in the UK. The challenge that lay ahead was to secure as many points as possible so that we can secure 1st in class in the championship. As we pulled into the paddock we were greeted with ACDC cover band entertaining over 2000 bikers on there annual event. However by 1030pm the paddock was clearing and we could set up camp.

The team were joined by Sam Caterick & Sam Grogan two former Lunar students. The car preparation started on a sunny morning whilst Dan & Peter reported to race control as we were sharing the car in double header event. The Clark of the course decided that we could both do 3 laps each in one 15 minute session. So I would get an out lap a flying lap and in lap, driver change and 3-4 laps for Dan, the challenge was set.





Qualifying. The collecting area gates opened first gear selected and go, go, go...... the plan was to stay ahead of the pack so to keep a clear track for my flying lap. Cold tyres and brakes and Cadwell do make you smile out lap was a little slippery but it all went a little quickly but great fun. I dived into the pits for driver change and Dans turn. Dan pushed hard and was getting quicker lap on lap before the flag came out. I qualified 11th and 2nd however due to double header rules as Dan was second driver his 2nd best time was used so he would start 4th.

Race 7 11th on the grid the aim was to beat Pat Fenn 10th however we were retained in the holding area for over 30 minutes whilst the marshals tried to dress the oil dumped from park straight to mountain (thank you metro cup).



On the warm up lap it was clear that it was going to be fun as the dust and oil was thick. Along side Pat on the grid again for my last race this season 5 second board and lights go out and away, I had a flying start and managed to clear 1 places however Pats V8 had the legs on me and I had to tuck in behind. As we reached park straight it looked like a blizzard as the cement dust was mad and made for an interesting run through to the Goose Neck. Lap one was completed of the 25 minute race. The aim was to maximise point today so finishing was at front of mind so I took a steady pace for the first 4 laps until I was comfortable with the oil on the track. I had been having a tussle with David Smith in his ZS who had given chase but I was able to pull out a reasonable lead after I had gotten into my groove. By the time the flag dropped I had gone form 11th to 5th and 2nd in class and taking over 4 seconds off my qualifying time.




Saturday evening the team spanner checked the car cleaned brakes and settled into a social evening with other racers and got to see some of the other races from the day. Sunday morning and it was Dans turn for the hot seat in Race 8. Dan started 4th and at the start had a good push, the V8s being some 200+ kilos lighter with more power managed to get in front off the line. Dan pushed hard and was running in P6 for the first 4-5 laps it was clear that the 2 cars in front were having there own battle which meant Dan could get a chance, however with a class C behind and in front Dan had his work cut out. With the car in front defending to keep his competitor behind Dan at bay, meant that Dans charge was being hampered. However following a cracking move Dan was able to pass Blaine at the Mountain and chase the pack in front taking a further 2 seconds form his lap times and some 38 seconds lead on Blaine. Dan drove the car to his full ability and at the flag had done the team proud securing not only first in class, but 3rd overall.

So we have secured 2nd in class and 1st in class out for the 2 rounds this weekend, at time of writing we look like we are 1st in class for the championship however until this are published by the championship.



To finish our season in the MGCC we entered the 2 driver 60 minute endurance race after half an hours qualifying we started P6 from 24 runners and I was in the hot seat for the start. We had worked out that the tank should do a hour as we burn approx 1ltr a minute at race pace, our tyres and brakes had not let us down all season and a real test for the EBC blues which have lasted the full season. I had a good start albeit delayed by a wheel spinning ZR. The first lap was interesting with the amount of fuel being carried, especially with the car now being over 1300 kilos compared to some of the smaller cars weighing 800 kilos the joys of open races from different championships.

However we stayed on the black stuff and push hard for 25 minutes until drive change handing over the car in 7th. Dan again took up the challenges and roared out for the pits to attack the circuit for the last time this weekend. As the fuel load dropped Dan was able to push harder setting quicker and quicker lap times soon Dan was under my 1.51 and pushed forward also moving up the grid, after 50 minutes Dan was on a charge and taking 4 seconds a lap out of the next car but with constant pace and balance Dan got his lap times down to 1.471 on season old tyres was a superb effort. At the flag we finished 4th out of 24 racers.

The team on the pit wall cheered as Dan ran the wall to celebrate. We were made up with the finale of the weekend and proudly took 1st in class award.



So the season has drawn to a close for us and the work starts now for 2011, the MGZS is now to be repainted in new team colours and the build of the MGF will start after the Castle Combe Stroke Association Charity Day in September.

Thank you all for your support in 2010 and we will be talking to you shortly re our plans for 2011.

Well done to you all. Dave and I really enjoyed seeing you at Cadwell (1st time we'd been there and it is a lovely circuit) plus the bonus of doing the 2 parade laps at lunchtime

Look forward to seeing you at a few more next year

Talking MGCC Snetterton - 3 ZS's go toe to toe

Well Snetterton was a race and a half we had entered the 2 last PBIC rounds in which I went head to head with 2 other racing ZS's both of which run in a class above me.

Ashleys slick shod ZS180 class C car and Ewarts very light 190 vhpd slick shod class C car and my Class B road tyre car.

Out of 26 runners I put Car13 on P7 with a 1.31.702 pipped by Ewart in 6th place with a 1.31.581 with Ashley on 1.31.985 it was going to be close.

Race 1 - Paul Lutti (Trophy fame) was to Drive Ewarts car so he was starting at the back. We had a great race and I managed to keep Ashley behind me just but the young pretender in Ewarts car drove a blinding race well done Paul good skills mate. You set a time that Ewart will now chase and the guys at the back had a shock as you made up places in lap 1!
Paul finished in P6 with me in P7 and Ashley had a DNF due to fuel issues as his regulator was playing up which was a shame. But with hi temps it was hard on several of the cars in the Snetterton sunshine. I finished 2nd in class and was still within 2 points of securing the class championship.

Race 2 - All 3 ZS lined up again with Ewart to the left of me and Ashley behind me, the lights went out and the tyres lite up, I had to push hard as both the others were on slicks and I was on road tyres so laps 1&2 could be make or break until they got heat into there tyres. What a race, close does not cover it Ashley and I ran the full length of the back straight mirror to mirror but I managed to hang on to the lead over him. I would like to thank Ashley for one of the most enjoyable races this year. I finished P6 with with Ash in P8 and Ewart in P9. So with the seaon done the count back begins and in the end Simon secured class B by 4 points but what a season of chasing. Thanks for the support and I will update re relay later and link incar videos.

We plan to move up a class next year which will mean we can rduce the weight of the car fit a aftermarket ecu and bigger brakes and run on slicks so its going to be a busy winter.

Thanks to sponsors for 2011 and if your interested drop me a pm re deals for 2012 season.

See you all hopefully at Supercar Saturday at Combe later this month.

We are well on the way to building another LE500 Trophy car for the 2012 season. This car is for Garry Wetton who raced a ZR190 last year. With a bit of luck there could be 5 LE500's out next season.
