  1. Congratulations to Nathan Waters on winning the very competitive 2WD Silverstone Winter Series against some of the best off road drivers in Britain. The event took place over 6 rounds on an indoor high grip astroturf track and attracted 136 entries. In the final round Nathan set a convincing TQ with his Schumacher KF2, but the race win went to Lloyd Storey, with 2nd Iain Mellish, and 3rd Dave Poulter , all driving KF2's. This result meant that Lloyd secured 2nd in the championship and Dave Poulter 3rd. The under 13 junior class was won by Lewis Jones - Schumacher KF2, with 2nd Ben Pugh - Kyosho, and 3rd Harry Weedon - Schumacher KF. Congratulations to everyone, and to the Silverstone club for putting on excellent series.

  5. <IMG src="http://www.petitrc.com/gallery/files/3-silverstone_14_rd1_1000.jpg" width="600"> The first round of the prestigious Silverstone Winter Series attracted 92 entries in the premier 2WD buggy class, and it was new Schumacher driver Dave Poulter who unexpectedly set TQ. Dave has shot up the rankings since he joined the team, and he was joined at the front of the grid by team mates Simon Moss and Nathan Waters with their Cougar KF’s. Qualifying results 1.Dave Poulter – Schumacher KF 2.Simon Moss – Schumacher KF 3.Nathan Waters – Schumacher KF 4.Greg Williams – Associated 5.Jack Neal – Schumacher KF 6.Kev Lee – Team C 7.Eugene Galley – Schumacher KF 8.John Spencer – X Factory 9.Richard Barton – Schumacher KF 10.Dave Burton – Schumacher KF Dave led for most of the exciting final but a small mistake near the end allowed Nathan Waters to dive through the gap to take the win with Greg Williams in 2nd and Dave Poulter in 3rd, Kev Lee 4th, and Simon Moss 5th. Drivers travelled from all over the UK to the excellent indoor astroturf venue. Many thanks to the Silverstone club members who put on a great event.

  7. <IMG src="http://fplreflib.findlay.co.uk/engapp/CarbonCar_2.jpg" width="600"> Ninety percent of the original injection-moulded plastic parts in this remote- controlled car have been replaced by 3D printed carbon fibre. - Advances in various types of 3D printing have progressed to the level where they parallel the output quality of more traditional methods of production. A good demonstration of this can be found in a remote control car model that was originally produced using injection moulding, and has now been three dimensionally printed using carbon fibre reinforced polymers. A company that was founded by a rapid prototyping expert who has worked with Red Bull racing has worked with a leading manufacturer of remote control vehicles and accessories to make a radio-controlled car almost entirely by 3D printing. Standard radio controlled car weighs 1 kg Graphite Additive Manufacturing has teamed up with Schumacher Racing Cars to 3D print a remote control car in carbon fibre reinforced plastic. Graphite printed the parts using the Selective Laser Sintering (SLS) 3d printing process, using carbon fibre reinforced plastic material. The collection of companies set about the project to show that the weight-saving benefits of this production method can be applied to a wide range of other applications in manufacturing. The team at Graphite Additive Manufacturing says that the carbon fibre reinforced material used in this process has the highest stiffness-to-weight and strength-to-weight ratios of any available 3Dprintable plastic material. The metal components for the remote control car that were not manufactured by 3D printing were bolted straight into the parts that were and these included the shock absorbers and floor pan, along with the obvious nuts and bolts. 3D-printed car weighs 0.9 kg The company has strong credentials in this area, as it is headed up by managing director Kevin Lambourne, who previously managed the UK’s largest rapid prototyping department in the 1990′s and also spent seven years at Red Bull Racing using rapid prototyping. The carbon fibre reinforced material used has the highest stiffness-to-weight and strength-to-weight ratios of any 3D-printed plastic, and its use gave a weight saving on the finished 'carbon' car of 10%, when compared to the car in standard trim. - The total calculated weight saving on the finished 3D printing carbon remote controlled car componants over the previous injection moulded output was a tenth.

  10. <IMG src="http://www.petitrc.com/gallery/files/4543-btcc_hal_2014_mod_1000.jpg" width="600"> The awesome track up at Halifax was the venue for the second round of the Schumacher BTCC. Many drivers turned up on Saturday to be greeted by lovely dry conditions, the track was looking fantastic and the drivers set up their race kit on the now covered pitting areas to get themselves ready for the weekend ahead. Since we were last up here there has been some great improvements done to the facility, now making this venue one of the best around from many comments heard during the event by several racers. There were several quick drivers on Saturday, and the day stayed dry throughout so lots of good running was had by many people. We arrived down at the track on Sunday morning and the clouds had moved in and it was looking overcast. Due to this and the threat of rain we had seen a little earlier on the weather forecast, we decided on round by round qualifying for the format. Due to a lower turnout than what we usually have in the Series, we decided to give everyone plenty of track time and racing action so they could all make the most of it. At drivers briefing it was announced that we would do 4 rounds of qualifying with the best 2 to count and then follow this with 3 leg finals for everyone. After all 3 legs, the Modified A Final result was: 1 Chris Grainger 2 James Hart 3 Andy Murray 4 Colin Price 5 John Pape 6 Matthew White 7 Brian Eldridge 8 Chris Kerswell 9 Adam Catchpole 10 David Hall Onto 13.5 and after all 3 legs, the A Final result was: 1 Zak Finlay 2 Lee Price 3 Darren Lee 4 Tony Broad 5 James Baker 6 Mark Wallace 7 Ben Putt 8 Chris Gunter 9 Jamie Hickin 10 Peter Craig After all 3 legs, the 17.5 A Final result was as follows: 1 Michael Ball 2 Kris Kennedy 3 Gary Jones 4 Steve Ellis 5 Bradley Coaker 6 Warren Fox The trophy presentation and the traditional Schumacher raffle was all that was left to do after the finals had finished. A special mention has to go to the one and only Andrew Hall. Many of you will know Andrew as you may have seen him trackside as he loves to watch the racing and has great laughs and banter with many racers. He had the biggest cheer throughout the weekend when his good friend James Hart went to collect his trophy, Andrew decided to get a piece of the action and joined in on the photo - Great to see! A huge thanks must go to all the crew at Halifax, a massive amount of work goes in to make these events happen. Nothing was too much trouble, whatever we asked for or needed it was done, thanks to John and Muriel and their team. Thanks also to Bev for doing a great job at running race control along with Muzzy, everything went perfect and all racers left with a huge smile on their face, also a huge thanks to Mr Kris Kennedy who once again provided some fantastic commentary for the finals. The next round of the Series is round 3 at the Stafford track on Sunday 8th June, get yourself booked in as spaces are still available here.
