jackfrost15 (4)2015 kicked off with a new rally for us, the Jack Frost Stages Rally. We have been to Croft before for a single venue rally but not this one and the day became a whole lot more unpredictable when the snow started to fall at 9:30am. It covered the circuit for stage 2, providing lots of sideways action, but ultimately with no one able to even beat the target time the stage counted for nothing. As the event wore on Chris Wise & Tracey Taylor-West (Metro 6R4) built up a comfortable lead until stage 7. Their advantage of a minute went in one stage and instead they were now 12 seconds behind Arron Newby & John Cope (Impreza). Read More »

jaffa14 (8)Beautiful crisp conditions greeted the crews at Pembrey which meant only one thing, ice! Once this had thawed the usual grip issues with cow dung and low quality surfaces on the service roads, it proved to be entertaining on the stages. Kevin Tappin & Jonathan Hawkins (Escort Cosworth) were fastest on stage 1 by a single second from Paul & Nia Fowden (Impreza) on stage 1 and when Fowden punctured on stage 2 his challenge disappeared, (even with fastest stage times on stages 3 & 4).

uciwclondon14 (1)In a year of many firsts we made our first visit to the Lee Valley veldrome for the first major meeting since the London 2012 Olympic Games. The 6,000 strong crowd got what they wanted as Laura Trott rode a superb 25km race in the final discipline of the women’s omnium to net her 2nd gold of the meeting. The other two Brits involved in the proceedings on Sunday night did not medal. Jess Varnish only qualified for the kierin final after a fellow competitor was excluded from her semi-final and Jon Dibben was down in 5th after 5 events of the omnium, so it was a big ask. Still it was a great night and experience. Read More »
