    May 17, 2010 - 17:08 by Kevin 0 Comments

    “So after the Schumacher Off Road boys did it last weekend with the Cougar SV, this weekend made it 1-1 in National victories with the Schumacher On Road team taking the flag at Mendip this weekend with the Mi4LP. Schumacher driver Chris Grainger has dominated the first round at Mendip taking a fine TQ and 3 legged victory. The rest of the team were also in fine form with 4 further drivers in the modified ‘A’ final, Colin Price 4th, Chris Kerswell 5th and Chris Ashton 7th. In the Pro Stock class half the A final field were driving Mi4LP’s which is an amazing achievement considering the depth of the class! Lee Price made it a good weekend for the Price family bringing it home in 3rd with Dominic Carter 6th, Byron Humphries 7th, Ashley Wiffen 8th and Mark Hancock in 10th. The team move on to the Schumacher BTCC next weekend at Cotswolds in preparation for the next national at the same venue. Entries are still available and booking in is at www.centralbooking.org. Congratulations to all the team on a great performance over the weekend!!



    T3 Wins 2010 Swiss Championship R2

    May 17, 2010 - 11:31 by Kevin 0 Comments

    Xray reports – The second Swiss Championship Race was held in Islikon on carpet. Team XRAY driver Mario Rigert was driving in the Expert Class and Philipp Hagnauer was driving in the Open Stock Class. Saturday was only for practice and the track was changing from hour to hour. The T3 was very quick but with new tires the car had a bit less grip. Controlled practice was held in the evening, and Philipp and Mario took the leads in both classes. The race began Sunday morning. Mario Rigert dominated the Expert class ahead of Martin Strittmatter. The two drivers were battling the entire day, but Mario was a bit faster. Also, Matthias Meier was very quick and after two Finals he was on the podium… but he had bad luck in the last final and finally took P5.”
