THANK YOU TO OUR SPONSORS WHO HAVE HELPED US OUT THIS SEASON WITH THE GROWING COSTS
So thank-you to Genmar I.T for stepping in and providing this years RWD Dirt rod. We have a Volvo 960 2.7 to play with. Genmar I.T is run by Gary and his team they provide competitive I.T solutions in the Essex and Herts area and also has a computer repair shop in Bishops Stortford. They boast a small I.T museum in store which makes me feel a little nostalgic if not old if i'm honest.
We would also like to thank GK Motor Factorswho have helped out with the cost of the Decals for the cars. They have a Facebook page. GK's provide a huge range of motoring requirements from OE quality car parts, paints, tools and also Decals. They are based in Witham High Street. Not only do they offer a superb service it's great to support a local business.
I have been censored by Jenson at the moment as he wishes to do his big reveal as soon as he has fully finished his car so I will post the pictures ASAP.There is a rather funny one of him hanging upside down in car bolting door plate on worth a look.

SORRY TO SAY THE LEXUS DIDN'T MAKE IT TO FAR GONE FOR REPAIR
GOODBYE OLD FRIEND YOU WILL BE MISSED
Well we tried, The rear suspension was way worse than we thought. She needed 2 bottom arms due to corrosion, Two trailing arms bent, Two top arms ball joints broken, Steering rack, Front legs just to much to repair so she off to the oval Race track in the sky. All joking aside She will be recycled by JnW Waste services.
RACE WELL IN THE OVAL IN THE SKY
She is all full of trim from the new replacement. Nice shot of our Iconic bonnet from last years Race for Life run Emma done.
WELL HELLO THERE YOU WHAT YOU UP TO

Stansted Raceway Last meeting of season 21/10/18
Last meeting for these
Last meeting for these two Focus's before they off to the the big oval race track in the sky. The Lexus will live to fight another season a few repairs she'll be good as new ish
Ready to race
Jenson the trainee on the Lexus in the background, Drew in middle on his Focus, Then me on my Focus ready to do battle one last time this year.
Tommy Carter helping
Tommy's always there to help weather it's unloading cars clearing up or fixing car's in between running his arse off making sure everyone is safe.
Jenson my car wasn't in this
So the car was fairly straight for the begining of this meeting although it was softer the jelly then I lent it to Jenson.
shape when I left it
He started well and soon learnt about under and over steer, He was flying bearing in mind he has no driving experience on track or even road
in your care was it???
It was muddy and slidey and soon there was a big pile of cars lots on non contact going on everywhere. Jenson taking a big hit enough to shake the most confident driver. But he turned round and carried on. He then decided to have some non contact of his own bending chassis back again. He had loads of fun which how it's meant to be he can't wait till next year. If he drives like that he will be winning trophy's.
New Focus build 1 Nov 17 (Before shot)
RTS Winter series with Myself,Expo with Lily while I used the Lexus.Our first race out together. Then the Stansted Summer season kicks off then all this happens. What a year. Absolutely Epic fun. Roll on 2019. (After shots)

Jenson filmed from the pit bend bank
OK so a few questions need to be answered Jenson because I lent you my car out the kindness of my heart,She didn't deserve this !!!
1:Why is there almost 4 degrees of camber on my back wheel it wasn't there before?
2: why is my NSF tyre smoking going round the pit bend?
3:Why is the chassis on the OSF hitting my tyre and the chassis rail on the NSF jammed on my gear box?
4:Did you have epic fun?
