Kyle McBride takes Queensland State Championships

Kyle McBride takes Queensland State Championships

Last weekend Pine Hills Dirt Racing held the 2015 Queensland State Championships on a large and extremely high speed, and when dried out, very high grip track. The event started off with two rounds of practice and two rounds of qualifying on Friday. The weather wasn’t kind to the drivers on the first day and they ended up with a few rain showers, which dropped the grip on the track and made it quite slimy. Kyle McBride TQ’d both of the qualifiers for that day and he would went on to take the overall TQ following four more qualifiers on Sunday. The top 10 qualifiers went straight into the A-final, and following one 10-minute practice they went straight into the 45-minute final. Kyle started off the main with a clean start and went on to have a smooth race with no mistakes over the 45 minutes and he took the championship by over two laps of the entire field.

Motiv RC Black Out charge harness

Motiv RC Black Out charge harness

Motiv RC’s new Black Out charge harness is all-black to match any colour pit station. It uses the patent pending TQ Wire 4 to 5mm step bullet-type connectors, allowing to charge 4mm or 5mm bullet plug packs with the same lead. The ends are colour coded at the bullet’s using shrink wrap to designate positive and negative polarity. It also boasts 200 degree Celsius wire that allows to charge at higher amps if desired and at 2 feet long it allows to charge out of the way to keep the pit area clean. The harness also features extra length added to the most common XH balance plug which allows to reach the balance port without putting added stress on the wires.

Schumacher BTCC Rd 4 – Report

Schumacher BTCC Rd 4 – Report

The super fast circuit of Halifax was the venue for the BTCC this past weekend, virtually all racers turned up on Saturday for lots of practice time, the weather was dry and the forecast was good all day Saturday. However the forecast for Sunday was totally the opposite, everybody knew that very heavy rain was predicted in the early afternoon, so due to this the decision was taken to start the event slightly earlier on the Sunday morning, to try and get the event complete in the dry conditions. The format for the day was 4 rounds of qualifying with round by round and then 1 final for everyone. As forecast the rain held off until the last few heats of the final qualifying round, then a little started to fall here and there to make things a little more interesting. For the finals everyone was preparing their wet cars on wet tyres as it was a little moist. Colin Price took his form from the great win at the last BRCA National and stamped his authority in the Modified A-main, taking the win from Olly Jefferies and Chris Grainger.

These allowed Nikos to built a good lead on Panis Dokos (Xray) and George Vasiliadis (Xray) and to ultimately take the win of the second round.
