2015 PLUM PUDDING @ MALLORY

Post by billy f on Wed Nov 04, 2015 11:29 am

Not seen any regs or entry forms yet!

There is nothing on the BARC Midlands website either!!

However, it is in the list of events on the Mallory Park website, and the entry form for the bike races is there, so it looks like it will be going ahead Very Happy
There is also a note saying that the MSA entry form will be available soon santa

Right then who is doing the plum pud. We of course know that Billy will be there as he would turn up at the opening of a Scalextric track (he fancied Oundle sprint for godsakes Shocked )

But what about anybody else ? Edward ? Jack ?

Just had an email confirming my entry, so either next to you or behind you on the grid. Therefore, please be careful with your intake of sprouts on Christmas day!

Well another entertaining Plum Pudding meeting @ Mallory Park. Came away with some body work damage which appears to be the norm for this meeting.

Had an interesting argument with a member of staff at the circuit for driving my car back from the scrutineers bay before the 0930 curfew. Scrutineering bay 200 yards from where the car was parked id pushed the car down there id be fucked if i was pushing it back again.

I understand that there is a noise curfew at Mallory so if the cars cant go to the scrutineers then they can come to the cars and check them they do this at Castle Combe. Moan over.

Practice was fairly uneventful other than the throttle pedal snapping a few laps into practice and having to drive the car back to the pits on the kill switch as the throttle had failed and wedged itself fully on.

Billy broke out the Mig and welded the throttle back together using some bits of jubilee clip that he he cut up and we were back in action, We then took the car down to the weigh bridge and set the ride height again Billy was instrumental in doing this as i needed to be sat in the car.



Cars ready for play (thanks for the wheels and tyres Jack just the job)

Race1

I was mid pack (row7) and on the inside against the pitwall as i drove into the assembly area

i was on grid position 13 now im quite superstitious i gave serious thought at this point to start from the back of the grid or the pitlane but decided to live with it. As the lights went out i had a cracking start as we entered Gerrards an MR2 tagged the back of an MX5 putting him into a spin he went to the inside of the track hit the barrier and then came back across the circuit nearly collecting yours truly and the Fury i had no choice but to turn left onto the grass. Unfortunately the Moles at Mallory park must be the size of Badgers ! the front edge of the Bonnet was torn off along with the bottom half of the radiator ducting. I rejoined penultimate last and was able to keep Billy and a battling pack of Caterhams in sight and found some laps i could close slightly (probably down to 8 seconds) but it was a very lonley race and i ended up finishing 13th.



Sun was out and it was 13 degrees cant be bad.

Race 2

This was more like it on the third row on the outside of the grid just where i like to be and certainly the car with the most straight line squirt all the quick boys were further back (due to the reverse grid) so here was a chance to lead the race even for a lap. Again another good start got me into second and on the exit of Gerrards i passed an MX5 to go into first place for about 20 yards before a kawasaki engined 7 came screaming past on the stebe straight and thats how it was the quick boys all came past within a couple of laps ad i was being chased down by a gaggle of well driven Caterhams then on the exit of Gerrards i saw the familiar flash of orange Day glo in the rear view mirror which meant one thing that Fletcher was now on me and going extremely well. Now the Fury is a quick car and the power was helping me just keep the Caterhams at bay. Billy went by and i managed to chase him and nearly repassed him on the start finish straight but he outbraked me held the line and ny the time we exited Gerrards he was 200 yards ahead. I was driving hard and just managing to keep the Caterhams behind me. As the Go pro has proved i was shown the chequered flag lifted off and was even waving at the Marshalls at this point the Caterhams i had been racing with came past still at race pace then a backmarker re overtook. The penny dropped that it had been a mistake si i had to get back on it. One of The Caterhams spun at the essses and the two 1400 Mks had come together at the hairpin i just went for but must admit to feeling a little relief when the chequered flag came out for real.

A good days racing i just need to alter a few things on the fury to make it more comfortable then its just seat time to gain confidence.

Big thanks to Billy for all his help as ever its most appreciated.

Bodywork damage shouldn't be the norm at any meeting and that's the reason I stopped doing the Plum Pudding.

Totally agree Pete it's the one thing that would put me of doing the Plum Pudding again. Off the start I nearly got tagged into the pit wall by a car jinking round another although credit where it's due he did spot me at the last moment and backed out the move. But it seems that whenever you do this race the risk of being hit is massively increased.

Very nearly entered at the last minute. Maybe a good idea that I didn't! after I decided it was to late to get ready and enter, I was planning on coming down for the day but a serious case of manflu made worse by over medication of Gin meant I could not attend.

See you all in the New Year

Over medication of Gin fair play to you

I don't want to sound to negative about the day because I really enjoyed the battle I had with one of the Caterham was epic and and hard fair racing I also know Billy had a Epic battle in the first race.

So I wouldn't let this stop me doing it .I think the strategy of holding your entry until the last minute to ensure you start race 1 at the back of the grid is the way forward.

We missed you Ed lol

See you next year

I have regularly complained that I do not get a boxing day off work.
The last one was 2005. 9 soddin years.

23rd December my boss says..." you have not had a boxing day off in years, have this one.

A little bit more notice in 2024 would be great

Sounds good to me mate I might struggle with the kit car though as there are sharp shards of fibreglass poking out but I can still bring the everyday car though
