Race Reports: Lightning Stadium takes Monster Mania Title! (850 Reads)
Posted by admin on Tuesday, June 19, 2007 - 11:16 AM


A Hot Bodies Lightning Stadium driven by Michael Gaul took the 2007 LRP Monster Mania title at the recent running of the yearly monster truck and truggy event!

From the 26th to the 28th of May, it was time for one of the most important truggy & monster truck events in Europe! With more than 110 racers battling for the winning glory, the LRP/RC-Autoparts Monster Mania 2007 is probably the biggest 1/8 scale truggy & monster truck event in Europe. The mega-event was host by the MCC Laupheim in cooperation with RC-Autoparts, who perfectly prepared the location and track.

The 3-day event consisted of four exciting categories which every racer was to participate in so they could collect valuable points for their overall ranking. During Saturday, the Monsterpark Trial, Freestyle Jumping and Pulling constests were held. Sunday and Monday were reserved for the race on the superb MCC Laupheim racetrack!

Race Reports: Master Boots (822 Reads)
Posted by admin on Monday, June 18, 2007 - 06:47 AM

CML Distribution


Young CML sponsored driver Elliot Boots has won the prestigious Kyosho Masters race held in France annually.

The race is attended by Kyosho's top drivers from all around the world and this year was no exception. In attendance were current world champion Mark Pavidis and past world champions Daniel Reckward and Yuichi Kanai. Also in the field were multiple world finalist Linus Thern, winner of the recent Euro's warm up Jerome Aigoin, past european champion Miguel Matthias and other stars such as Adrien Bertin and Stephane Deroche.

In the main final which was run in wet conditions, Elliot passed pole man Mark Pavidis early on and never looked back going on to win by a comfortable 2 laps.
Elliot shod his car with Proline's BowTie in M3 compound which was perfect for this multi surface track.

Perhaps the biggest surprise was that Elliot was running his S7 engine, which he normally uses at club and local events. This seemed to cause quite alot of interest in the pits where people were amazed that this less expensive engine was fast enough to run at the front of this field of superstars. Elliot, as always, fuelled his engine with Byron 30% RACE fuel.

A big well done to Elliot from CML Racing

Race Reports: XB8EC on Podium at Norwegian Cup Rnd3 (754 Reads)
Posted by admin on Monday, June 18, 2007 - 04:01 AM

Xray Buggy

The third round of the Norwegian Cup was held on June 9/10 in Hof just a 1-hour drive from Oslo. The weather was really nice and warm (27–29°C range). That along with good driving at a fairly fast and difficult track made this a race to remember.

Team XRAY drivers Rune Berget and Morten Thorkildsen attended the race and had made some good preparations and both felt pretty confident with their cars; both were on a good pace. Rune Karlsen was TQ (this is his home track) ahead of me (Morten) and Rune was in 9th.

Sunday morning we made the last preparations on our cars and felt strong for both our semis trying out a new shock set-up that really worked well and made our cars even faster through some heavily rutted sections. Unfortunately Rune experienced some trouble in his semi due to really tough track conditions and he had to retire even though he was on a good pace for making it into the main. I started in first spot in my semi but after only one lap I had a glow-plug failure and quickly fell behind by 2 laps down to the #5 spot. Driving like mad, I made 5th position in the last lap so I barely made it into the main.

In the main final I started in 10th position, full of confidence as I knew my car was one of the best, if not the best car on this rutted up track. Quickly within a half lap I was pretty amazed to be in third spot driving close to my maximum potential but the car was perfect and really worked well for me and made my job easier. Rune Karlsen was in first spot but flamed out and did so several times more during the race and was out of the battle early. Pal Lovdal and I were battling for the lead for a good 15-20 minutes as he had a different fuel strategy and needed one less pit-stop than me. I managed to make up for that and after 35 minutes I found myself 1/2 lap ahead of him and just running at my own pace trying to save the car and making it to the finish.

Then disaster happened. My fuel line broke at 38 minutes just when I was about to make my last pit-stop. I lost 2 minutes and was a lap down on Pal with only 5 minutes to go. Back on the track I wasn’t able to catch him for the win. I did however set the fastest lap time for the whole race. XRAY… the only car with an under 40sec lap time...

Taking 2nd at this race made me overtake Rune Karlsen in the overall standings in the Norwegian Cup. I’m feeling confident for the next race in Tromso at the end of this month.

Final results:
1. Pal Lovdal
2. Morten Thorkildsen, XRAY XB8EC
3. Kyrre G. Jakobsen
4. Ronny Arnesen
5. Jan Erik Kasa
6. Erik Fink
7. Stig O. Alstad - XRAY XB8EC
8. Anders Mehren
9. Jan Erik Kronheim
10. Rune Karlsen

Race Reports: RRCi series round 2: 11th June 2007 (701 Reads)
Posted by admin on Tuesday, June 12, 2007 - 03:17 PM


CML driver Jon Howells proves his worth with a great win in the second round of the 2007 Radio Race Car series.

Originally the second round of the 2007 RRCi series was to be hosted by the Fast Tracks R/C club at their Tamworth track. However, a change of circumstances made this impossible so instead Carl and his team welcomed us to their temporary home for the day at the ever-popular BNRC Frankley venue.

The track, laid out by the Fast Tracks crew, produced lap times over 50 sec for everyone – this track was big, really BIG! To even things up the drivers were running in the opposite direction to normal, and not just on the astro-turfed areas either, with a few sections of grass thrown in to create a multi-surface feel. Just about every possible feature of this excellent track was used including several large jumps, a mammoth cross over table top and some great little ripples to catch out the impatient. Finding a rhythm was difficult at times but fortunately the FTD qualifying format allowed drivers a second (and third) chance to stake their claim for pole position.

CML team mates Jon Howells and Andy Reynolds were looking forward to a strong performance today, both running their Picco P3-R powered Hyper 8 buggies. Andy was delighted to secure himself a spot direct onto the A final grid after three steady runs in qualifying. Jim Davis finished just ahead of Jon to steal the extra point for TQ.

As usual the CML men both used Pro-Line M3 compound tyres for this meeting, Jon tried the Crimefighters on his Hyper 8 before settling on Bow Ties for the A final, while Andy preferred the Bow Tie all day.

Despite a warm-up drama for Jon prior to the A final start, nothing was going to prevent Jon from securing his second victory from two rounds of this years series, winning the race by a convincing margin from Jim Davis and Greg Hill with Andy achieving a modest improvement on his qualifying position to finish in 10th place.

Round three of the series on 24th June takes us down to mid-Devon and the Tiverton club’s Burlescombe track.
