07.05.15 MEMBERS UNLIMITED... WITH A TWIST!

On Thursday night we held a member unlimited event with a twist! We took the average fastest lap times of the drivers over the 4 races and that would determine the victor! 

With 3 races complete the results were extremely close with Ryan Earp and Mike Tarrant separated by just 0.015 seconds!!! Zac Price was 3rd with Artur Daszkowski completing the top 4! 

The final race burst into action with Zac setting a blistering Lap time of 45.1s on the first lap, but he wasn't done there... He carried in to chip away at that lap time and set an incredible time of 44.831s!!! The first 44s lap ever, this allowed Zac to overhaul Mike and Ryan finishing with an average fastest lap which was 0.08s quicker than Ryan!

Mike Tarrant congratulated the winner saying "Big well done to Zac on his win, tonight the Price was definitely right!"  

Also a happy birthday to Mr Ryan French who turns the big 30 this week! Have a great day and we hope you enjoy your birthday karting session!

22.01.15 THERE'S SOME NEW COMPETITION IN TOWN KARTERS


THURSDAY 22nd January saw the first Team Challenge of the year take place, qualifying was won by the team of Graham Powers and Sam Crockett with Sam setting a fastest lap of 47.606, just 0.2 seconds faster than the team of Ryan Earp and Peter McCall.

With this race being an endurance event the teams would have to make driver changes in the pitlane, an element which Ryan and Peter grasped quickly, this allowed them to jump into first place only 10 minutes into the race, a lead which they would hold until the end of the event.

Behind the 2 leading teams there were some great battles for the last step of the podium, after 60 minutes of flat out racing Jason Price and Craig Chambers took 3rd. 

The majority of the drivers in this event were new members, this didn't stop them from setting great lap times though. A total of 7 teams set fastest laps of 49 seconds or under, with the lap record being broken multiple times throughout the event, Graham drove a stunning lap and set a 46. 538!! This pace enabled Sam and Graham to claim second place.

Next Team Challenge event will take place on 12th February so make sure you've secured your space!

After 60 minutes off flat out drivers Harrison Osborne came out on top with a 48.469, a great time considering the slippery conditions we had on track.

20.11.14 DID YOU HEAR ABOUT THE LATEST #GRID ENDURANCE?!

ON Monday 10th November TeamSport Birmingham held one of the closest endurance events in recent memory.

After a controversial qualifying format, in which the team which drove the lap closest to 60 seconds would be on pole, Mike Tarrant and Mathew Harris were at the front of the grid! Closely followed by our joker team and the remaining field.

The first few laps saw the top 5 teams pull away, opening up a healthy lead over the rest of the field. This group stayed together until the first round of driver changes, at one point the leading 4 drivers all set a fastest lap within 0.1 seconds of one another.

With tight and rapid racing going on at the front of the field the drivers further down the leaderboard raced just as hard for position, Matthew Law and Lewis Millman were holding onto 6th at halfway through the 1 hour event.

Coming into the final 10 minutes of the event, Haz Osborne and Ryan Acton led the event by just 0.6 seconds!!! With the top 4 covered by 4.5 seconds!!!

After a big mix up at the front of the field thanks to driver changes and mistakes from teams, Mat Harris and Mike Tarrant took the chequered flag!

After an entire hour of flat out racing it was second place for Peter McCall and Ryan Earp. Coming in just 4.9 seconds off the lead and with the fastest lap of the race with a 46.499. These guys looked to be on for a win until some mis-communication between teammates led to Pete coming into pits for a driver change when Ryan wasn’t ready! This lost the team around 15 seconds and the lead.

Taking the last step of the podium and the 3rd place trophy was Harrison Osborne and Ryan Acton coming home a further 10 seconds behind second place.

Next #GRID event takes place next Monday, 24th November with spaces still available to book.
