Brad Jackson Racing headed for the 4 day FIA Main Event at Santa Pod this weekend and with a large number of European racers entered and a rain free weather forecast

Brad Jackson racing headed for the 4 day FIA Main Event at Santa Pod this weekend and with a large number of European racers entered and a rain free weather forecast this was promising to be a great event. Brad was the leading the UK National Super Pro Championship so Crew Chief Wayne Jackson was feeling the pressure!

The 35 competitors had to be on their game to make the 32 car fields and with 10 qualifying rounds it was going to be tight. One round was bumped so after 9 rounds Brad ended up in 19th place on a 0.0226, in fact 25th place was a 2 hundredths time, 0.0291 with ex Junior Champion Joe Kellett , a measure of the competitive nature of this class of racing, 10th place was an incredible 0.0077 from Tom Atkinson.

 Eliminations Round 1 saw Brad facing Mick Howling in the Paul Marston Racing School’s Monza, Mick red light gifting the win to Brad however Brads 0.07 reaction with a 7.68 dial and running 7.684 would have been very hard to overcome.

Eliminations Round  2 saw Brad racing the Top Methanol Dragster of Martyn Jones, this car often runs in the 5 second bracket so this was another stern test for Brad, Brad won the round with another great reaction of 0.0494 and running 7.72 against a dial in of 7.68, this gave Brad the win over the red lighting Martyn Jones.

Eliminations Round 3 Brad was against Barry Giles, a very good 15 time event winner, Brad had beaten Barry at the last meeting so knew that Barry would be chasing revenge, Barry took the win with a great dial in of 7.45 and ran 7.454 with a reaction time of 0.08, Brad’s reaction 0f 0.09 and a dial in of 7.71, breaking out on 7.68 wasn’t good enough and a very well deserved win for Barry Giles.

It was also a great event win for Ian Powell who beat Wouter Van Leersum from the Netherlands in the final.

Brad’s season is still going very well with semi final place at the Festival of Power, an event win at the Springspeed Nationals and a last 8 place at the FIA Main Event leaves Brad still leading the championship, these points are subject to ratification :-

  1. Brad Jackson 1770
  2. Ian Powell 1720
  3. Simon Gough 1530
  4. Scott Hauser 1400
  5. Brian Pateman 1360

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
