Brands Hatch Race Report, Pics + Videos!

Hi All,

So the Brands Hatch Indy layout is one of the races I really look forward to every year as it really suits my driving style as to me it is just one big go kart track and although it is really technical with every corner seemingly having multiple ways through it I always seem to go well there.

Thankfully that continued with our first trip there in the Elise where we had our best race weekend of the year, which was strange as my normal team where off racing elsewhere so I had Hangar 111 looking after me + I had a team mate for the first time this year which was great as you can compare times and notes, so thanks to Hangar 111 for doing a stellar job 👌

Unbelievably I have never had a lap time disqualified before but unfortunately my best lap in Qualifying was deleted for exceeding track limits so I ended up starting 4 places back on the grid to where I had hoped to start but that made the race more fun I guess.

When it came to the race, we just avoided a big crash at turn 1 which I had to stop to miss so that dropped us right to the back pretty much so I got my head down and lap by lap caught the pack back up, now this was a 45 minute race with a mandatory pitstop so once I caught the pack I pitted early to try the undercut which worked a treat as I made 2 places, made me smile as I exited the pits and I said to myself, right now it is Hammer Time, below are my first 3 laps after the pitstop -

 

Then half way through the race there was another big accident but I was 2nd in my class with 3 other forced induction cars behind me, who to be fair have been quicker than me all year so it ended up with a 10 minute race to the finish, as I am fighting these guys in the championship I was determined to hold my 2nd place so basically I just looked forward and ignored my mirrors and at the end we held of the assault from behind to finish 2nd in class which I was really pleased with.

So we have one more race weekend left at Donington on the 30th October and if we have a good weekend we could finish 2nd in class and third overall but just checked the weather and it looks like it may be wet which will be a real shame as I’m much happier in the dry but let’s see how things pan out.

Certainly going to be a fun end to what has been a really enjoyable first season racing the Elise, please find highlights from Brands below + a few pics -

Cheers,

Paul.

Lotus Elise Trophy Season 1 Complete, Donington Photo Book!

ZEKK2WZ.jpg

 

Hi Everyone,

So where did that season go? it only seems like yesterday we were collecting our new Lotus Elise looking forward to a new adventure and before you know it we have 7 race meetings under our belt and it is time to park the car ready for winter. Looking back it was a great season though, a lot of fun, if I'm honest at the start of the season I was surprised how quick the competition was, I was expecting to be straight on the pace but as the season progressed we got quicker and quicker, which was also helped by quite a bit of development on the car, and by the mid point I felt we were getting on top of the car with the Brands Hatch round being the highlight of the season with some really great racing.

Championship Standings!

In the end we finished 2nd in the Forced Induction class and 4th overall, really wanted 3rd but for our first year I was really happy with that. We have plans already in place for next year where we are taking the Elise into a different category, endurance racing, with one round at Spa so that is extremely exciting, more news next year.

Donington, The Final Round!

The less said about this race weekend the better really, we did some dry testing the Monday before and the lap times were great and the car felt on rails but once we got to race day we could have done with a boat rather than a car, much the same as the previous year in the Radical at Donington, it was just a challenge to keep the car on the track, I don't mind driving in the wet but when it is this wet it just isn't any fun really but we survived multiple incidents over the weekend where I lost it under breaking, ended up in the gravel with 6 others at the start of race 2 and had a Praga race car spinning off in front of me in testing, so getting away with a cracked windscreen was a result really.

Please find a few pictures below, roll on next season.

Cheers,

Paul.

iLounge Racing is Open, Hurray, Welcome to the UK's Premium Demo Space for Motorsport Simulators!

 

Hi Everyone,

I'm really happy to announce that iLounge Racing is now open at HFL, from what started with a chat in a van 18 months ago has now resulted in a demo space where we have 4 simulators on demo from around £2000 to over £100,000.

I'll keep it brief but the idea is that you can come along, experience how amazing simulators are now, try a few options, spec your preferred system and we will deliver and install.

Whether it is a tool to get you quicker on track for racing or trackdays, or some online racing for fun or even single player, we've got you covered.

We have partnered up with the major players to give you the best experience and support and to give you the ability to be as quick as anyone out there.

Below are a few pictures and a video overview.

If you'd like to come along or have a chat please feel free to give me a call on 01767 448121.

Cheers,

Paul.

Getting the Radical SR1 in the Showroom!

 

Hi Everyone,

I'm full off good ideas me, as I am not racing the Radical at the moment as going to concentrate on racing the Lotus Elise for another year I thought it would be a good idea to put it in our new iLounge Racing Showroom as a centrepiece.

Firstly it wasn't as easy as I thought due to the big step up to the room and also now it is in there I've not got something new coming to replace it so now it has got to come out, doh.

Anyway, please find some pictures below of the fun and games, thanks to the guys help, anyone fancy help getting it out 🙄

Cheers,

Paul.
