Right guys not been on here much of late due to workload etc but weve been up to a fair few things over the past few months.

We are sponsoring the young lad 'Ross Connolly' who's one of Extreme 22s drivers in the BTRDA rallycross championship........more interestingly for you's is that hes entered his first season driving a Nissan Pulsar and is up with some stiff competition in the modified 4wd category.
There is a very limited budget with the car but weve been working hard to try make his car competetive in this category. The other thing to note is that Ross is only 16 years old (hasnt even got a normal drivers license) and hes up against some very good experienced drivers:shock: 
As well as getting the car ready for its first outing I have been helping Ross with a few tips ive picked up over the years to improve his driving skills and make him faster. The Pulsar needs to be treated differently to most other cars in order to be quick and in some ways it goes against the driving rule book of smoothness = faster  Im sure some of you that have had their cars on the limit on track will know what im talking about lol.

Anyway after a shakedown at Lydden Hill a few weeks ago the gearbox decided to shite itself so got another fitted straight away as well as ironing out a few other teething issues with the car. The car is running a fair few mod's but is still running a stock turbo, maf and injectors with boost set at 1.4 bar so shes reasonably quick  afr's are good still so could even run a tad more boost but the stock T28 cfm wont really give much more so left it at that rather than running tubby beyond its limit with no real gains.
I have test drove the car a few times on our private test track and she is one very good handling and extremely quick little car now after making a few alterations. 
Ideally the car needs better brakes, straight cut gearbox a bigger turbo, ecu management & mapping which we will be sorting in a week or so, then we can really start to push hard and hopefully destroy the competition.


So now to last weekends event which was at Blyton park in Lincolnshire and first round of the championship  

I was at an army reunion on Friday / Saturday in Gt Yarmouth so after two days of mucho drinking and merryments i headed up to Blyton park late saturday where Ross and Extreme22 were staying, they had the lorry with big marque already setup so i set about making a few last minute checks and adjustments to the car, once finished (early hours Sunday morning) got a bit of shut eye ready to be up early to get car weighed, scruteneered, fuelled up so was all ready for Ross to drive  

Basically there are 4 heats after a practice session which determine your grid position in the final.

So heres a few pics (got loads & vids) but no time to upload them all at the mo sorry!



Heres a rocker cover we did for him which is a bit of a joke as thats what he wanted
Very Happy








Ross ended up with finishing third which is some achievement for a 16 year old thumbsup








Some of Blyton over weekend
















I for one am extremely proud of the lad Ross!
Hes not a know it all, he listens to what hes told & takes onboard advice given, doesnt make excuses if hes made an error and just a generally nice lad who im sure will go far and move on to better things with his racing and motorsport in general you the man

I will do all i can to help him on his way, he's already gained commited interest from other sponsors which is no mean feat so this will help financially with the huge running costs involved.

Also his dad 'Mark' & wife 'Lorraine' should take a lot of credit for getting him to this point as i know first hand how hard they have both worked and how committed they are to see their son do well thumbsup  british  

With a little more competition experience, bags of luck (always helps) Laughing and some weaknesses ironed out with the car im sure Ross will be bringing some 1st place trophies home this season



So good news for all the Pulsar lovers out there Go ROSSY, GO ROSSY  Laughing  cheers
