Shakespeare County Raceway Stratford  Upon Avon 2nd – 4th May 2015

We all headed to Shakespeare County Raceway for the Springspeed National Finals this weekend, the second round of the UK Super Pro Championship, we found a cloudy day on Saturday with a cold wind so the track temperature was very low, with wheel spin an issue Brads best time of the day was a 7.84 on a 7.70 dial in, however everyone else had the same issue and this placed Brad in 7th

Sunday morning was a wet start but the sun and the Jet Drier had the track ready for lunchtime and Brad’s first run was a 7.79 on a 7.73 dial dropping Brad to 9th, Brad’s final qualifier was a stunning 7.772 on a 7.77 dial in and this was good enough for No 2 qualifier, No 1 Rick Cook was 8.30003 on a 8.30 Dial in.

 In the semi finals Brad’s opponent was Barry Giles , Barry has been a past Super Pro National Champion and a 15 time event winner so Brad had to be on his game, and he was, an 0.04 reaction and a 7.78 on a 7.76 dial in was good enough for the win.
In the final Brad’s opponent was Joe Kellett, a 3 time Junior Dragster UK National Champion, this is Joe’s first year of Super Pro, he made a very good effort in reaching his first final, Brad ran a 7.77 on a 7.76 dial with an 0.07 reaction time, unfortunately Joes car broke and this gifted Brad his first Super Pro event win.
Brad reached the semi finals at the Festival of Power at Santa Pod and now this event win see’s him leading the UK National Super Pro Championship.

Autosport NEC 2015

I have just had a couple of great days working on the Lucas Oil / Santa Pod stand at the NEC in Birmingham. We saw a huge amount of visitors to the stand and I learnt a great deal about some the other products that Lucas have to offer in the range ( over 240 ! ), Nigel Morris was a very patient teacher. I also learned quite a lot of technical information about a top fuel car from Chris Andrews. I would like to thank Les Downey for the opportunity. Here is the link to the report on Eurodragster.com
