UK National Super Pro Champion 2018 & 2019

Written by on . Posted in General Pages

We headed to Santa Pod for the final meeting of the year, Brad had a healthy lead of 410 points but the championship realistically was between Brad and the team Time is Money car driven by Tom and John Atkinson.

Tom had a great meeting at the European finals taking the win after Brad’s throttle cable body broke on the line thus putting their team in contention for the title, they needed to out qualify Brad and hope that Brad went out in the first round and if they took the event win they would overtake Brad and win the National title, Tom’s father John is the driver for this weekend.

We decided to test the car on the Friday just to make sure that everything was working correctly with the car after the new cable had been fitted, Brad completed a test run with a promising 0.027 reaction time and eased to a 171 mph safe quarter mile, with Brad’s first reaction time of the day being a good one we knew Brad was ready for the weekend.

Saturday was a beautiful sunny day and the weather looked set for the day, qualifying could be crucial because the weather forecast for the UK on raceday was torrential rain due the latter end of the hurricane Dorian coming from the USA and the Bahamas.

Q1 Brad had a 0.088 reaction time and ran 7.72 on a 7.66 dial in, the track was still a little bit cool but 6 hundredths of a second over dial in was good enough for 3rd at the end of the session with John qualifying 5th.

Q2 3 hours later the sun had heated the track and the Pro Mods had laid some rubber on the track we knew the car would be in good shape for this run, Wayne chose a dial in of 7.67, Brad pulled a 0.023 reaction time and ran 7.6794, 9 thousandths of a second over dial in put Brad into 2nd place with John keeping the pressure on by moving up to 4th.

Q3, the final qualifying session of the day, Wayne thought the car would run slightly quicker and dialled 7.66, the car was amazingly consistent and ran another 7.6792, 2 – 10 thousandths of a second quicker than the previous run.

Sunday Eliminations Day

We woke on Sunday morning to find it had been raining through the night, the Santa Pod track crew dried the track and we went to the first round of eliminations. John was in front of Brad and John faced Dave Russell, Dave had a better reaction time than John and took the win, so that was it,

Brad was the UK National Super Pro Champion for the second consecutive year!

The whole team are ecstatic, in the 6 years Brad has raced in Super Pro he has finished, 5th, 3rd , 2nd twice and won the championship twice, a fantastic record in the fastest and most competitive bracket class in Europe!

Brad and Wayne would like to thank all the crew, Nick Good, Cristiaan Carlo, Dave Catton, Ian Baker and Neil Baker whose help and dedication to support Brad helped greatly in Brad achieving this result!

Brad and Wayne would also like to thank all our loyal sponsors, without their support we could not continue to compete with this front running professional team, many thanks to, Lucas Oil UK, The Plytek Group, The Taxi Shop, Martin Williams (Hull) Ltd, D&S signs, and Racewearonline.com

Brad has now resigned from his daytime job and is taking some time out to explore the World, he sets off to Japan next month, with further flights booked for Australia and New Zealand, it is unlikely Brad will be in the UK to collect his Champion’s trophy at the Santa Pod Racers club presentation on the 1st February 2020, but Wayne and all the team will be there, providing we raise the funds for the 2020 season Brad should be back for the 1st meeting , The Festival of Power at Easter.
Many thanks to all our supporters, have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year and we will hopefully be on the start line at Easter 2020 !

We had a great evening at this fantastic event. It was a pleasure to see so many legend’s of our sport and it was particularly satisfying to see the Junior Dragster and Junior Drag Bike racers of 2015 recognised as the future of our sport.

The first 3 in each class were invited to attend along with their parents and were treated to some special gifts on the evening.

The Junior Dragster Drivers were Charlotte Bradford, Paige Wheeler and Billy Everitt and the Junior Dragbike Riders were Liam Holgate, Louis Davies and Stacey Reed.

Brad had a great evening and can be seen here with Andy Carter, Les Downey and Stu Bradbury.
