Next Round:

A Rainy Day in Cheshire

Posted on 9th April, 2018

Despite the inclement weather this weekend during the opening rounds of the 2018 Production GTI Championship at Cheshire's Oulton Park circuit, both our drivers came away with good results and important points on the board.

 

The Trackslag equipped #44 Set the pace early on in qualifying with a blistering lap straight out of the box but was just pipped from pole position during the dying seconds of the session.

After leaving the line like a scolded cat #44's early advantage was lost after a racing incident at Island Bend resulting in a non-finish.

Starting from the back of the field for Race 2 on a now drying track #44 climbed the order to finished 2nd, setting the fastest lap on the way and closing the gap considerably on the lead car before the chequered flag.   

 

Matt Eccles, (thMatt Eccles braves the elementse sole 8v entrant in the field) and his race engineer Daniel Slinger were able to use both races to develop their race setup and strategy in lieu of completing a 16v conversion for the next round of the championship at Snetterton in sunny June.
