The MLC team continue to be at the front and July was no exception, some dominating results in various classes
The HKRC meeting at Kimbolton was host the LGM series including the New X30 tour. The team showed front running pace all weekend in both the seniors and junior X30 class. Eventually finishing 3rd in juniors from the strong 25 kart grid, having lead most of the final, Just missing out in a great battle.
This was followed by a great Win in Minimax and from a large and strong grid and fastest lap to top it off.
Two weeks later at Whitlon Mill for the Stars of Whilton Mill Championship, the whole team had blistering pace all weekend, fast enough to take the win in every class the MLC team were represented in.
Again IAME X30 juniors was completely dominated by the MLC team with the Mach1 Kart and Grice Racing Engines power, Winning all of the heats, with fastest laps in them all, winning the final with the fastest lap and breaking the lap record 3 times!!
Also At times posting fastest laps in Iame X30 Senior with a very inexperienced driver eventually ending a great 3rd, showing great progress from the driver and the Mach1 Package being the perfect choice for the new to the UK class.
Junior Rotax again some fastest laps in the 25 kart field, leading the final twice just unfortunately missing out in a great last two lap battle.
Minimax again really fast all weekend never really out of the top 5 pace just incident filled race day deprived the driver and team the result that was rightly deserved.
Tests are available in all classes, and any drivers wanting to test the ultimate X30 package should get in touch.
Over the last few months we have been sourcing and having built and new trackside support lorry, that will help to improve the team efficiency when at the track and also ensure that our equipment can be transport safely and securely.
The Lorry was purchased as a standard box lorry and then converted to our requirements.
The new Truck includes state of the art data station with Wifi internet, and office area that can be used for debriefing during race weekends.
Also improving the teams capacity to transport up to 8 karts and all of the equipment needed to run them.
With the on going success with the Mach1 kart in the UK, MLC Motorsports team Manager Lee Murray headed off to Wakersdorf Germany for the second round of the DKM championship. The overall idea of the visit was to build on an already strong relationship as well as exchange ideas and give detailed feedback. The weekend also provided a great opportunity to visit the factory based two and a half hours away in Brakenheim. On arrival the track in South East Germany was bathed in glorious sunshine giving very high levels of grip and very challenging conditions for both equipment and driver but with rain forcast over the weekend it was not going to be straightforward weekend regarding track conditions.
When the race weekend had finished we were invited to the Mach1 factory based in Brackenhiem. This gave a great insite into the whole process of how the karts are made from the design stage all the way through to the end product. With a high number of key components manufactured in-house it was certainly an eye opening experience to see a sprocket carrier in its raw state before seeing any machine work. What was clear from the moment you walk through the door is that efficiency and attention to detail are taken to the next level. After a site tour from Martin Hetchel we sat down to offer feedback for ongoing development work and prototype parts.
