Marka BD7 floating fan mount & black drive cups

Marka BD7 floating fan mount & black drive cups

Italian company Marka Racing have two new aluminium option parts for the Yokomo BD7 2014 and BD5 available in the form of a floating fan mount and black front spool drive cups. Starting with the fan mount, the CNC-machined 7075 aluminium part offers a special design that minimises the influence on the chassis tweak as only one screw is used to fix the mount to the main chassis plate. The black anodised holder is usable with most of today’s 25mm, 30mm, 35mm and 40mm fans, it weights in at only 2.3g and comes with mounting hardware. The sturdy design allows to mount smaller 25mm and 30mm fans with only one screw to minimise weight gain while larger 35mm and 40mm fans should be fixed with two screws. The part is a direct fit on BD7 2014 and BD5 cars but using the mount on a 2015 spec car requires a mooting hole to be drilled by your own.

GT12ClJames Hart wins at GT12 Clubmans Series Rd3ubmansRd3

Round 3 of the popular GT12 Clubmans Series was hosted by the Broxtowe Model Car Club this past Sunday. After a welcoming drivers briefing from the club, the organisers held a vote to decide whether to change the qualifying format from “race” starts to staggered starts. With a majority show of hands it was decided to run staggered starts in qualifying. Broxtowe laid a technical and twisty track for the event, and unusually it was run anticlockwise. Grip levels came up steadily during qualifying, with drivers improving their times throughout the day.

SARDA Electric On-road Nationals Rd5 – Report

SARDA Electric On-road Nationals Rd5 – Report

The 5th and final round of the 2014 South-African ORE national championship were held at the 2002 Worlds track in Krugersdorp this past weekend. The weekend started out wet as a rain storm hit the track on Saturday morning which delayed the start of the qualification. One part of the track remained waterlogged and the layout had to be changed for the event to continue, which caused some unhappiness among the drivers, but in the end it was the best option for the sport. Due to the delay only two qualifying rounds were held on Saturday with the remaining two being held on Sunday morning followed by the mains.

Essex Winter Series Rd 2 – Report

Essex Winter Series Rd 2 – Report

The second round of the Essex Winter Series took place this weekend.  Again, the series featured a fully-booked entry, but a few last minute withdrawals allowed the organisers to accommodate the majority of the drivers on the waiting list. One of those was current UK National Champion, Olly Jefferies. With Round 1 winner Andy Moore and expected title contender Kyle Branson at the 1/10th 200mm Worlds, championship points would certainly be up for grabs.
