Piraterc Race Reports : Graham Alsop 3x Paddy Piston Race Champion (5254 Reads)
Posted by admin on Wednesday, May 29, 2013 - 05:05 PM news

Paddy Piston 2013

Well hopping a short 1 hour flight from Southend to Belfast on friday evening i arrived in sunny Belfast with sunny weather ordered just for the event weekend. After a short drive from the airport i was delivered to what I can only describe as the best race track I have ever seen in person. Facilities that take racing tracks in the UK to another level loads of coverd pitting and even a few private pitting sheds now thats cool. Fully covered rostrum with enough monitors poking out that no one could ever complain about lack of information in addition to all of this there was a newly installed racer position information board. Im surprised that the UK nationals do not have this venue as a permanant feature on their race clandar as even with the traveling costs it probably work out the same as attending a 2 day national for most people. Speaking to the variouse competitors they were all echoing the same thoughs or very close perhaps this will open more racers eyes to what is truely a hidden gem.


The BADMCC team have done an amazing job of getting their track ready to host the event and deserve a massive pat on the pack for a job well done. The racers were blessed with plenty of track time with evening controled practice on friday in heat format and a couple rounds of practice on the saturday morning before heading into 7 rounds of qualifying with the best 4 from 7 to count towards your place on the grid for the finals now thats some seriouse track time.


Graham Alsop claimed a Hat Trick of victories 2011/2012 & now 2013 with his Bullitt powered Hotbodies Rallycross Buggy with a class act drive for the 1 hour A Main final

14 Aaron Vance 11/ 659.556 59.959 51.102 (5) Durango Alpha

Some intresting news Lee Bunker was running the new HUDY FX Engine at the event and was running 10 mins no problem throughout qualifying and finals with the engine coming off at around 182 deg after a 1 hour final not bad statistics. It will have to go some way to beat a dominant force clearly represented by the sheer qty of Bullitt engines in the A Main and no fewer than 33 of them in a field of 64 thats some seriouse engine support.

Great weather meant a high turnout with 85 drivers competing this weekend the track had been rolled in the week so it was smooth and slippery so tyres would be critical.
Buggy qualifying was very close with Simon Reeves taking round 1 for TLR round 2 was Tony Truman AE new RC8.2 and round three Karl Jackson smashed the only 10 lapper of the day for TLR but Tommy Chung took TQ with two 2nd and 5th for Kyosho. Truggy qualifying was wrapped up by Rob Gray with TLR and Novarossi taking all three rounds.

Piraterc Race Reports : Brennan Ralls Reports from Clanfield National for Nemo Racing (1597 Reads)
Posted by admin on Monday, July 18, 2011 - 03:05 PM news

Sunday the 17th of July and Team Nemo headed to Clanfield for round 6 of the UK BRCA national series. A very wet Saturday gave many concerns if the meeting would go ahead but after all that water the track in the morning had just soaked it up or drained it away. A well prepared track with many jumps & undulations made for an interesting drive, the surface was now damp so there was very little tire wear. The Hard packed surface would be a very fast & furious.
