Round 1&2

Donington Park

22/23 March 2014

Wow! what a start to the season.  New car only finished a few weeks prior to race.  First full speed test was qualifying and I put it on pole in class! :)

race 1 standing start, great race, got a little left on my own but got class win. :)

race 2, live on Motors TV Raceday, rolling start, mayhem at the first corner but everyone got through cleanly, fantastic race mixed in with the BOSS blue ovals, class win! :)

Finally a racing group that wants to have fun and race, not smash.

Thanks to Jay & Kim at Finsport - difficult times but you still produce the goods.  RIP LMF xx

Round 3&4

Croft

26/27 April 2014

The longest trip North took nearly 7 hours, but the track is worth the journey.

A new addition to the VTec crew who knew the circuit extremely well left me with some work to do but it was great racing.

Good start in race 1 put me up to 3rd overall into the first corner but I was beaten on the straights in the end.

An electrical gremlin put the rev limiter on as I lined up for race 2 and I had to start from the pit lane, but I caught up overtaking everything other than the VTecs and finished 6th Overall.  2 x 2nd in class 

Round 5&6

Snetterton 300

10/11 May 2014

A wet qualify sorted out the "men from the girls" and I put it 3rd on the grid! my best ever result!

Race 1 was dry and we got the set up wrong, causing huge understeer, I slid my way to the end, winning my class.

Race 2 was wet and we slid everywhere in the rivers.  Keeping up on the first lap I was coping well until I lifted off to avoid a spinner and I joined them on the grass!  

Fighting my way back through the pack I aquaplaned into the side of a Peugeot, slid off track again! but recovered and won my class

Round 7&8

Silverstone Int.

7/8 June 2014

Motors TV Live Race Day again

Very wet qualifying caused my car to steam up - I couldn't see.  Way down the order.

Race 1 a shambolic rolling start, no one knew if we were racing or not!  Had to make my way back up and made up 16 places.  Won my class.

Race 2 a better standing start, made up more places and won my class again.

Round 9&10

Cadwell Park

26/27 July 2014

Oh now nice it was to race a top speed on this track, with no incidents.  Great car.  4th on the grid in quali :)

Newbee to the class knew the circuit extremely well and pretty much left me for dust, but it was a good race 1 trying to keep the 2 tuner class cars behind for a while.  2nd in class in each race.

races circuit date report:

Round 1&2

Rockingham

6/7 April 2013

A dry start to the season - surely this cant be right?!

Rockingham is a very fast circuit and the lack of speed showed on the long straights.  We don't have the exhaust upgrade yet, let down by supplier.

Tried too hard in race 1 and over cooked the tyres.  Race 2 avoided a huge pile up on 2nd corner making 6 places but the lack of speed showed as they gradually caught up in the 20 minute race. 

Disappointed with results but we have improvements to follow.

Round 3&4

Snetterton 300

20/21 April 2013

From Trophy to Disaster!!  

Sunshine again for the races - this is unheard of!. 

Didn't qualify very well (again!) the new exhaust system didn't live up to expectations.  Had a great start to race 1, made several places by first corner and had a good fight to the end. 19th and Awarded 3rd place in the Masters Trophy 

Race 2 confident start and settled in for a good close race but was hit on lap 2 from behind twice and spun hard into the Armco.  'Syd' is destroyed!! :(  the chassis is damaged beyond repair.  

Finsport have their work cut out now to try and produce a new car in time for the next races - watch this space!

Round 5&6

Silverstone Nat.

11/12 May 2013

Huge crash at Snetterton in April.. destroyed Syd.  With less than 3 weeks to the next round Finsport found and built a replacement car, with bank holiday in the way too.. Jay worked night and day and produced "Molly" in 11 days!!  :)

with thanks to Roose Motorsport and Totally Dynamic for the colour scheme (designed by Kim!)

An Excellent weekend racing - the best yet.  New car is Awesome.  Only short testing time on Friday left me some work to do, but practise Saturday morning found me only 1.3 seconds off the front row!  Couldn't find that all important qualifying speed and started from 24th, but still only 1.5 seconds back.  Race 1 in the sunshine saw a first lap crash resulting in 4 laps of safety car but I ended up 20th out of 31!  Even with  having to avoid a spinner with a very near miss!

Race 2 we had to watch the weather, at the last minute it rained.  Wet tyres gave some excellent grip and I had a full race long battle mid pack.  Excellent race.  Finished 16th with 3rd in Mintex Masters for both races.

Round 7&8

Castle Combe

15/16 June 2013

The weather really threw us some bad luck this time.. The day started wet for practise and qualifying, race 1 it was dry then it rained, the race was stopped for too many crashes, everyone came into pits to change tyres, restart, a few laps in and more incidents, someone on their roof.. end of race.  Race 2 damp and rain expected, wet tyres.. it dried out!  Wet tyres ruined, got a good start, up to 11th but as tyres overheated I was caught again.

3rd & 2nd in masters cup

Round 9&10

Snetterton 300

20/21 July 2013

Think we had a dodgy tyre or 2.. had understeer that got worse in race 2 - too many "offs" caused the boot latches to fail and the boot opened.. Into pits to shut it down, off again, open again, into pits to strap it down. finished but a lap down.  bring on Brands Hatch...

Round 11&12

Round 15&16

Brands Hatch Indy

Formula Ford Festival

26/27 October 2013

disaster, weather changed so much we were on the wrong tyres for everything... 

on the final lap of the race I get lapped by the leaders and get punted off ! Kind of summed up the season really..

time for something new me thinks!

 

 

   

 

 

 

2012

 

races circuit date report:

Round 1 & 2

Silverstone: National

7/8 April 2012

Wet start to the season.  Dunlop were not ready with tyres so late for practise by 5 minutes! Quali in wet, need to do better. Race 1 made a great start but slid in the wet. 15th

Race 2 slightly dryer conditions.  Was more with the pack for longer but 15th again

Round 3&4

Snetterton 300

28/29 April 2012

wet, wet and more wet! Race 1 couldn't see out of the windscreen - followed the fog lights ahead until they fell off track!, pitted to clear window, disappointed.  

Race 2 slightly dryer, more of a race, was chasing someone for the whole race long without a light but kept with him, couldn't find a way through. 15th, getting disheartened in the bad weather

Round 5&6

Donington Park - GP

19/20 May 2012

FINALLY a dry weekend! :-) time to get the slicks out.  Out on the Full GP loop, not raced this before. Race 1 fantastic start, overtook 4 before first corner and this time I kept the places! Had a great race, battling for position all the way, 2nd to last corner and side by side, car ahead turned in late and slow and we both hit him, car beside destroyed, I survived with minor damage, came home in 14th.

 

Race 2 another good start, kept with the pack for a while but damaged sustained in earlier race made car control more difficult. slowly fell back in timed laps but finished 12th! best result so far, even with a 5 second penalty for cutting chicane too often. 

!! :)

trophy for best improved driver - 19th on grid to 12th

Round 7&8

Cadwell Park full

2/3 June 2012

interesting!!

quali 9th :-) 

got tipped round in race 1 - recovered and finished 10th, repaired only to be completed punted off on the last lap of race 2.  Very wet conditions but harshly "dispatched" in a corner.. 

Syd very damaged.. :-(

Round 9&10

Rockingham

30 June / 1 July 2012

another eventful one.. puncture in quali when doing well, race 1 cooked tyres and slid to last, race 2 better but a broken wheel bearing caused drive shaft and gear box failure.. crawled over the finish line in neutral!

Round 11&12

Brands Hatch Indy

4/5 September 2012

enjoyed this one! much closer racing and actually had some luck for a change.  

 

finished 9th race 1, then gained but lost a few places in race 2 11th.  Car seemed a little underpowered tho

Round 13&14

Snetterton 300

1/2 September 2012

not good on the 200 track.. losing speed somehow.  Replaced something, feels better, hoping for better in last round.

Round 15&16

Brands Hatch Indy

27/28 October 2012

 Quali, out on slicks then it rained!.. 

race 1 out on slicks on damp track, superb start, made up about 8 places in first lap then car in front braked far too early and we hit, it knocked me onto slippery track and I lost 4 places.  Tried to catch up then it rained and I lost all grip and couldn't hang on to it, spun 3 times! :-(

Race 2 dryer track, still very cold tho. Didn't have such a good start and got blocked into a pack and although faster in places I couldn't find a way through.  Final laps and cars ahead got angry and collided, one spun off and skidded straight into me, damaged front wing and steering broken.. crawled to the finish line. 

Not quite the way we wanted to end the season but we have fixed some issues and I've learned more about the car so we hope for a more progressive season in 2013.  Hope to see you there! :-)

3rd & 2nd

Previous day raced in the VAG Trophy but there was a problem with brakes, rear left was jamming on, fought hard to bring the car home in race 1 followed by mad dash to collect a brake spare part and made it back in time to race 2 with only 10 minutes to spare!  3rd and 2nd in class

 

Golfs: Dry quali, didn't get result wished for, set up was still not quite right, but had good start to race 1, had an excellent fight but finished 4th.  Race 2 was WET, set up this time was perfect, it was extremely slippery and had a near miss with a spinner but fought hard all the way to keep the car on the black stuff to finish a very happy 3rd in class.

Previous day raced in the VAG Trophy, 2 3rds. great racing

 

Great weather for Golfs races.  Decent quali, First race was pushing for 4th, then gifted 3rd place by a spinner.  2nd race, front runner involved in first lap incident.  Pack spread out after safety car, 2 really good over takes and I was up to 2nd in class.. as the laps ticked by the recovering front runner gained on me, but I held on to 2nd by .02 of a second.  My First Champ 2nd place :-)  !

not a very successful weekend..

Finally raced on home circuit and did well for a change!  Used the VAG all-comers race as extra practise and came 2nd in class with some great laps.  Golf Race, front runners span up ahead, up to 2nd but was continually blocked by 16v and the span car caught up again..  Max'd the speedo, at over 120mph! :-)  but again, a 16v held track position (its class position you need for championship points, not overall race results!), lost a place, down to 3rd, down to 4th but fought back and finished 3rd.. by about 3 feet!

11&12

3rd & 2nd

The Final round of the season was televised, but only the 2nd races of both V.A.G and the Golf were actually on tv.. guess which one saw Dawn on the podium!... :-(  

VAG was great racing again with the faster classes giving plenty of room for others.  Dawn finished 3rd and 2nd in class.

As the car was up for sale Dawn didn't want to damage the car so took it steady.. but up ahead was a different story.  Running 4th on the track, 2nd and 3rd ahead were battling for every inch.  3rd place made a move but 2nd wasn't allowing it and blocked, unfortunately pushing the one behind onto the grass, they touched corners and 2nd place went spinning onto the infield, 3rd recovered but Dawn drove round them both for 2nd place :-)

Race 2 on the Sunday had a bad start, the car involved in yesterdays crash today tipped someone into the grass and onto its roof causing a safety car.  In the mêlée that ensued Dawn found herself down to 4th place in class.  With 3 laps behind safety car it left on 3 laps to race.  Dawn couldn't find a clean way through so the flag dropped as 3rd and 4th crossed the line 10ths of a second apart.

Bad memories of last years race in the dark and pouring rain were washed away and I thoroughly enjoyed the whole weekend: see race report.  Results were still only 10th and 12th but excellent racing. also the MINI World Record was beaten with over 270 mini's on track at once!! see pictures the racing was marred with a big accident in race 2, but thankfully all parties are ok.
