With 2014 drawn to a close the final round of the Whilton Mill Championship saw the MLC completely dominate the senior x30 class. with 1st and 2nd in the final, with Josh Hatton and Max Clarke. This in itself was not the dominating part, the domination came in being 1.5seconds faster than the closest finishing non MLC driver. We think this to date is the most convincing win the class has seen since its start in the UK.
As 2014 drew to its close and most teams were still eating mince pies, the MLC team went to PFI for some testing the weekend before the first round of 2015. This proved great preparation and after lots of hard work from the team, we again took the Win in senior x30 with new signing Ollie Varney, beating some very good drivers including a world champion. Once again also getting the fastest lap along the way!
A year on from the First Iame X30 race in the UK, where we finished second and this year taking the win, is a credit to everyone involved, by getting involved early in the class we have proved to stay ahead of the pack.
Not only that but new to the team Junior Driver Jake Bowman had a great day finishing 8th in his first ever race in X30 and first ever race at Pfi great things to come from him later this year.

The MLC team made the trip to France for the Iame X30 World finals, with four drivers two in the senior class and two in the Junior Class. Both These classes were hugely competitive with a truly global field with drivers from every continent making this one of the biggest karting events of the year.
The teams drivers impressed in the practice sessions regularly posting times in the top 10 within the 80 kart field, having never seen the track before this was a great performance.
This pace continued through the heats and in fact at times posting the fastest laps, in juniors the eventual result was a 13th place finish in the Grand Final after having to start from virtually last after a pre final crash.
In seniors due to and engine failure in a heat we lined up at the back of the B Final grid and then a true show of pure speed with a drive to second with the fastest lap! in the final leading most of the race eventually finishing 2nd again after a great battle.
with no advance testing the speed the team showed was very impressive and a credit to the new Mach1 2015 Kart.
