Final race of the season- Brands Hatch 31st October

Postby eastlmark » Fri Oct 23, 2015 7:14 am

Its Ricky's final race on Saturday 31st October at Brands Hatch and we will be out with the new Clio.
Practice is at 10.30 with the race scheduled for 14..30.
Also on the bill are modern classics and caterhams.
A "night" race is also on at 17.45 although we are not competing, it may be interesting to watch and a rare thing in British racing.
Might have spare tickets for this, let me know if interested. They are E tickets so you will need to print them out.
never thought I would want a list but now find myself needing one just to remind me: Clio V6 230, Clio cup racer (X85), Clio 200 (X98) clio 182 (X65) (Riku's), Renault sport twin turbo in Panorama blue (van), Spider (Xciting) Clio220 Trophy.

Photographer wanted.

Would like some on track photos of the car for press releases etc if someone wants to volunteer? Will pay your entry and expenses in return. Miles maybe? Paul Sage?

Free tickets for this weekend.
to try and encourage some support, I will be giving away free tickets to this event to all RAOC members who want to come.
Conditions are that you must turn up as I am paying for these and don't want to see them wasted!
They will be E tickets and you will need to print them out, I will need your email address to send them to. They cannot be copied as can only be scanned once.
either pm me or email me at: racingsystem03@gmail.com

ticket will allow Sunday access as well as far as I know but you might need a pass out of some sort on Saturday in order to get back in- ask at the gate if so, Although we are not racing on Sunday, there is a full day of future classics, swinging sixties and tin tops as well as another night race to round the weekend off.

Sorry Mark, can't make it this weekend due to family commitments. Good luck & hope the minor damage from Silverstone popped out easily! Hope to see you again next season

Thanks Rob, shame we kept you busy in the pits or I might have some decent on track photos to use.

All the E tickets have now gone, have a couple of hard tickets that can be left at the gate on the day if anyone wants them.
call me 07941355586. Keep trying as I might not hear the phone.
failing that any club member who wants to come along is welcome, pay at gate and I will reimburse you!
still looking for a photographer....

Thanks all for the support and as Miles has said, it was a great end to the season. Although Riku was 2nd in qualifying at one stage, the drying track was getting faster and faster but he had a little off at Clearways and needed to be dragged from the gravel trap and having to sit there powerless watching all the other cars go faster and knock him down the starting order to 9th (even the Ferrari had beaten us!) but still 1st in class. But with wheels caked in mud and loads of gravel everywhere under the car. So a big clean up was underway, me under the car and Simon Gamblen dealing with the wheels.


These photos are in the assembly area shortly before the race and in qualifying order:

This is a good pic of some of the faster cars in a different class that we race against.:

A nice turnout of supporting Renaults as well:

Race time then, rolling start and the Ferrari is dispatched on the first lap...as was the Focus. The Lotus retired which put us into 6th place but the Focus was making a strong come back and gaining and playing the pit strategy was important. We left Riku out in the hope that if the Focus caught him it would slow the focus down rather than bringing him in and giving the Focus clear air. the plan worked. The Focus pitted and we pitted the lap after with a great stop we pulled 20 seconds on the Focus. A lot of traffic to lap though and another Clio was gaining on us at one point but we held on to the 6tth place at the end. Riku had a little fight with a Honda ex BTCC car in the final laps, not realising it was 15 laps down in the race which could have ended in disaster but he got passed it safely and took the flag.
1st in class and 6th overall.
