Blog Update: Sam Taylor Team Mugen Truggy National Report (1076 Reads)
Posted by admin on Wednesday, May 07, 2008 - 03:23 PM news

The first and second national were to be held over the same weekend again starting at the excellent HNMC venue in Ware,
After weeks of racing in the worst conditions of all time we actually saw the sun shinning through and  my coat got a rest for the first time this season!
This was to be only the second run for me with the MBX5T and the first time on dirt so didn't really know what to expect and with a good number of top rallycross boys in attendance it was going to be tough.
Now I was warned that the driving style may differ in this class and could be slightly more rough than the buggies- it was!,
There are a few ways to describe the style of some of the driving - 'Stevie Wonder esque' would be the one that most fits the bill in my opinion, but as I was told- this is Truggy racing!!

Blog Update: Brennan Ralls Team Xray Truggy National Report (1123 Reads)
Posted by admin on Wednesday, May 07, 2008 - 03:19 PM news

The weekend of 4/5th May was the start of the truggy nationals at Herts, with a reasonably short run of only 100 miles so not to bad. The weather forecast looking a bit hit or miss for rain but as it turned out warm & dry all weekend which made a change to the weather of late.

Racing format would be TQ qualifying which is not really my favourite but them is the rules.
I have been trailing a new chassis for the last few meets I have raced the xt8 to answer the rumours, but it is only a test part & its something which i often do anyhow.

Blog Update: Brennan Ralls National Rnd 1 13th April Report (984 Reads)
Posted by admin on Thursday, April 17, 2008 - 02:05 PM news

Brennan Ralls National Rnd 1 13th April

With the warm up events cancelled & no track time at Herts I went there like many at a bit of a disadvantage compared to the locals.
The Layout would make for a fast track but would be loose & dusty as the uk weather had put payed to all the hertz guys hard work.

From the word go the 808 was good but found myself unable to find the required pace on this type of track due to my driving style, so was down the field on overall time.

Rnd 1 tried to hard & with some silly errors in the later stages cost me.
Rnd 2 found some good pace & had a reasonably clear run, one error again.
Rnd 3 it rained with a rapid tyre change by arron just made the line in time, again found some good pace, one error with the marshal struggling in the mud put me out of contention.

With plenty of hard work cleaning as the car was wrecked, found myself pole in the E. From here had a good clean start & pulled a healthy lead, I went in to cruise mode to save car, Elliot passed me on last corner but bumped into D.
With the heavens opening again & a start to forget gradually plugged away up to 7th, but with water now causing the engine to play around 7th was as far as i could go.

For myself a disastrous start to the nationals, but know this type of track i have to work on & improve on my driving for this surface as its an area where i struggle. The 808 worked well shame i did not show it justice.

Till next time or see you at Frankley & panther meet.

Blog Update: HNMC official Pre-season test By: Sam Taylor (1062 Reads)
Posted by admin on Sunday, March 02, 2008 - 05:40 PM news

With the season only a few weeks away the official test day at the excellent HNMC club saw a large turnout of top national drivers making the most of the open track and fair weather.
BBK timing gear was on hand so all the teams could keep an eye on the lap times and the track as always was spectacular to watch with the cars really working to the limits on the super high speed layout.

There is some great pictures of the various top driver's cars and plenty more to read
