What a really good weekend.
After a Saturday with rain, then sun, then more rain and limited runs, everyone had their fingers crossed for the Sunday......And it worked!

Our cars ran really well all weekend until Adam suffered a throttle linkage failure when staging for the semi. which was a shame as he was consistently the fastest on the day by a fair way.

Adam is now the fastest EP3 in Europe! He trapped a 153mph terminal which means we now need a parachute as he broke the 150mph safety limit. Even Specky in his Tigra which is quickest ET FWD car has only trapped 148mph.

Dougie broke his previous record in the Rotrex powered EP3 and managed a new European FWD Supercharged record of [email protected] which he backed up. Dougie went on to win the event.

Alvis running the K24 EG tuned last week by the lads at TDi South managed an 11.6 which is now the fastest NA Honda!

Customers also ran really well. Carl Watson running a totally stock motor and just breathing mods managed a 13.8 on his road tires and has bitten the bug and wants to go mental on his car and the biggest congrats must go to Lee in his yellow EP3 that we have been helping out for some time now ran a very impressive 11.7 to run outright the RWYB challange.

A really really good weekend.

I'd like to thank everyone that came over to say hello and add support.
I'd also like to thank our suppliers and sponsors and everyone that helped out and made it such a special weekend including DAR trackside support (Adams own company), Richard at TTS/Rotrex, Mark and the team at TDi South, Afy and Lee for the loan of tires after Dougie had a blowout and Neil Knight for the loan of the generator when we had to get the powertools out to get Dougie's calipers skimmed to fit under the new rims in time for the final.

Thankyou all. ;)

TDi are STILL dominating. I bet TDi feel like they're like a certain country from a certain period.

Well played guys. Awesome cars and times.

It probably not public knowledge about what goes on behind the scenes in terms of commitment, late nights, blood, sweat and tears by the prep team and the owners, so very well done guys! :D

Thanks guys :)

As stated, lots of long hours have gone into these cars, before the 2nd round, Dougies car was worked on for 10 hours straight until 5am getting it sorted, then back in at 7am for mapping and off to the track at 10am.

But, we live for it so when the cars pull the times and records that they have done, it makes it all worth while :cool:
