Opie Oils local sponsor Ben Harrison race report of round 3 & 4 of the 400 Championship at Cadwell Park

One of Opie Oils local sponsors sent in this fantastic race report of round 3 & 4 of the 400 Championship at Cadwell Park.

“Cadwell Park was always going to be tough race, it was just under a year since my big crash and my first time back at the track since it happened. I was determined not to let it slow me down so went into the weekend ready to attack the races harder and faster than last year.

Saturday:

It started in typical Cadwell fashion with the weather looking extremely changeable, which was proven when our practice was red flagged due to an extreme downpour.

This put me in a difficult position for the first race with the track getting dryer and dryer every minute leading up to it, I decided at the last minute to change to dry tires, this proved the right choice as the track was bone dry, I finished in 3rd place and felt very confident around the whole track including the corner I crashed on.

The second race I was ready to push harder to try and keep up with the top 2, lacking in top speed I lost the top two after a few laps and settled into 3rd again with a big gap behind me, I managed to drop my lap times by 2.5 seconds from last year during this race too.

Opie Oils sponsor Ben Harrision

Sunday:

I wanted to keep pushing to try fight for the win in the two races, I tried my hardest to drop my lap times and push each lap but it wasn’t quite enough as I had to settle for two more 3rd places in the first and second races.

In the first race I dropped my lap times by another 2.5 seconds from Saturday which I was very pleased with, I am over the moon I got a solid run of 3rd places and a full points haul from a track that I wasn’t sure I was going to be quick at.

Overall a very positive weekend, a solid finish in all races, a good points haul, a 5 second drop in lap times from last year and right in the fight for the champion with 2nd place in the championship standings.

Roll on Oulton Park and hopefully a few places better, I’ve missed the winner step. Again big thanks to all the people and sponsors that are supporting me this year.”

Thanks for the update Ben, we wish you best of luck for Oulton Park.

Bilt Hamber Double Speed-Wax outshines it's competition

Stocked Bilt Hamber products win Auto-Express product tests

Our friends at Bilt Hamber had reason to celebrate after a selection of their products WON recent tests carried out were by Auto-Express magazine. Amongst the test was Bilt Hamber recently released Double Speed-Wax which Auto Express awarded 5 out 5 and gave the following verdict:

“Bilt-Hamber says new wax is its best ever, and it led our beading tests throughout, only matched by Fusso. The speed at which it shifted water was barely diminished over our six-week test. Despite the performance, double speed-wax is great value as you don’t use much and the price includes sponge applicator and microfibre cloth.”

In the same issue other Bilt Hamber products were tested and won, these include:

Bilt Hamber Auto-Wheel – Won Best Wheel Cleaner 2015
Bilt Hamber Auto-Wash – Won Best Car Shampoo 2015

Opie Oils sponsored rider Ben Harrinson race report of round 1 & 2 of the formula 400 championship

We were very happy to hear from one of our sponsors Ben Harrinson this week who is competing in the NG Road Racing 215 Formula 400. Ben put together a fantastic report for you all to enjoy below.


NG Road Racing 2015 Formula 400 Round 1 & 2 Race Report

2015 started off very very cold! I had booked onto the  test day the Friday before as i hadn’t ridden the bike since the last race of 2014, I thought it would be a good idea to get used to the bike again and try and get some set up for the coming races.

The test day went well; I immediately felt at home on the bike and set about getting my lines sorted. I had an ongoing issue with the bike running quite bad below 8k revs but worked around it. At the end of the test day i felt good on the bike and was ready for racing!

Saturday

The weather was dry but it was extremely cold, tyre temp was going to be a big issue throughout the whole day so i took it easy in morning practice and felt out the grip levels and track conditions.

I started 2nd on the grid for the qualifier race, I managed to get a good start and settle into 2nd place where i stayed which put me 2nd on the grid for the final. I managed to hook the bike up well off the line starting the final but due to the cold conditions i took it too carefully into the first corner and got passed buy Emma Jarman on her ZXR. I set after her as i knew it I could pass I’d have some clear track to try and pull a gap. Unfortunately i made a mistake which let Tim Bradley through on his FZR.

I got a bit carried away trying to make up for lost ground and ended up overtaking under a yellow flag which i hadn’t seen so i finished the race in 2nd place, but got a time penalty which put me back into 3rd.

I was still happy to get a podium in the first race of the season and i knew I had the pace to run at the front.

Sunday

The weather decided to have a bit of fun with us and absolutely tip it down over night, so now it was freezing cold and wet, grip was going to be a serious issue, it turned into who could stay on the bike rather than who wins the race. To make matters worse it was the first full wet race since my big crash at Cadwell Park in May 2014. I took the practice session very gently as there were already people crashing in the wet conditions.

I started the qualifier 2nd on the grid again and focused on just finishing the race and gaining confidence for the final. I was running in 5th place with Simon and David in front of me, i used them as a target to aim for and slowly started to reel them in, getting faster each lap. I passed Simon for 4th place on the last lap giving me a second row start for the final.

Ben Harrison

I changed some settings on the suspension for the final and it worked really well, the bike felt really comfortable and i managed to push more than in the qualifier, I was running 2nd for the whole race, at one point i started to close in on Tim Bradley in 1st but caught a back marker at the wrong time so ended up finishing in 2nd place with the fastest lap of the race too.

It was a great start to the season and it’s only going to get better from here, i feel confident in the wet again and comfortable on the bike too. So after round 1 & 2 I’m running 2nd in the championship and ready to fight for the 2015 title!


What a great start from Ben, Opie Oils wishes the same in the next round and wishes him the best of luck for 2015 season.

The range consists of a filter unit which utilises the Pipercross competition foam, bonded to a ring plate. This ring plate can be attached (using the supplied DZUS fasteners) to either a tailored base plate or a blank base plate so you can cut the holes to suit your application.

Information about the Free Millers Oils Classic VSPe Power Plus:

Millers Oils Classic VSPe Power Plus Lead Replacement is designed for all classic engines previously requiring leaded fuel and now running on unleaded fuel. It is endorsed by the Federation of British Historic Vehicle Clubs (FBHVC) to protect against the corrosion effects of ethanol in modern fuel.

Millers Class VSPe is designed to protect classic vehicles against the adverse affects of modern unleaded fuel. The removal of lead from fuels and the addition of ethanol can cause problems for certain classic vehicles ranging from valve seat recession to fuel system corrosion. Ethanol attacks rubber hoses and seals in fuel systems and metallic parts such as brass and zinc. It also attracts water which can cause corrosion and poor starting.

Millers Oils Classic VSPe Power Plus offers an all in one shot for:

  • Ethanol Protection
  • Lead Replacement
  • Octane Improver

The Federation of British Historic Vehicle Clubs is pleased to announce the results of its fuel stability additive test programme. This research was designed to test the anti corrosive properties of proprietary additives claiming to provide a high level of protection against potential corrosion of fuel systems, including tanks, pipework and fuel metering equipment on historic vehicles caused by the addition of ethanol into petrol. The research was designed to simulate storage in a vehicle’s fuel tank for a 12 month period.

Millers Oils VSPe Power Plus, VSPe & EPS all received an A rating in the research which enables all these products carry an endorsement from the FBHVC.

Dosage: One bottle treats 40 Litres of unleaded petrol

Lowering your under hood temps, will lower intake temperatures, adding even more power!

Insul-Boot 2 Pack (Spark plug boot heat socks) 1″ Diameter x 6″ Length | Available in Red or Black – £38.93

Simply wrap the heat shield cover around the starter and fasten with the hook and loop fasteners; starter removal is not necessary in most cases.

Heatshield Products Exhaust Wrap – Various sizes available in White or Black – Prices start from £27.36

Exhaust pipe/Header wrap maintains hotter exhaust gases, decreases the gas density, and allows the exhaust gas to exit the header and exhaust system faster! Increased exhaust scavenging is produced helping to lower intake temperatures: that equals more horsepower. To gain full horsepower benefits, be sure to wrap starting at the header pipe next to the cylinder head, and wrap downstream. Exhaust wrap also reduces radiant from your pipe heat by as much as 50% keeping your ride a much cooler one. Using exhaust pipe heat wrap can also reduce heat damage to fairings and keep shocks cooler.

This heat wrap withstand 1200°F continuous and 2000°F intermittent. For applications exceeding 1200°F continuous use, check out Heatshield header pipe wrap. Exhaust pipe wraps can be fastened with stainless steel locking tie, hose clamps, or wire.

Made from crushed volcanic rock (basalt fiber), Lava Wrap has all the same benefits as exhaust wrap with that trick carbon fiber look and improved durability! This exhaust wrap is 25% stronger than fiberglass wraps, giving it a prolonged life and greater durability. Using Lava Wrap on a header and exhaust system, maintains hotter exhaust gases, decreases gas density, and that allows the exhaust gas to flow out of the system faster! Greater exhaust scavenging is produced, pulling intake gases through the cycle faster, helping to lower air intake temperatures. This gives you more horsepower! This wrap also reduces radiant heat damage and can lower under hood temperatures by as much as 50%. Lava Wrap withstands 1200°F continuous (please note this is a real world tested rating, please don’t believe over inflated temperature ratings of similar basalt/volcanic rock products) and 2000°F intermittent. Wrap Lava Wrap around your exhaust pipe, using overlap to hold itself in place (like a hockey stick or tennis racket grip). Use Thermal-Tie, hose clamps, or wire to secure ends in place.

The volcanic exhaust wrap is asbestos free and is made from a base high quality basalt yarn. The basalt fiber is naturally chemical, acid, water and fungus resistant. It is also noncombustible.

Heatshield Products Inferno Header Wrap 2″ x 50ft – Can withstand 2000°F continuous - £198.76

Unlike fiberglass and basalt (volcanic) exhaust wraps (which should be advertised at a 1200°F operating temperature), the Inferno Wrap is made from silica yarn making this header wrap soft, strong, and flexible while operating at its designed operating temperature of 2000°F continuous . It will sustain the extreme temperatures that your glowing pipes from the turbo, down pipe, header, manifold, or racing applications require. Simply put, there is not an insulating wrap on the market that will take higher temperatures and last longer. In fact, this header wrap can withstand intermittent temperatures of 3000°F, making it the only wrap to use on your forced induction or racing application. You can actually wrap the header with Inferno Wrap, run it, heat it up, and then unwrap Inferno Wrap from the header when needed. Wrap or “coil” Inferno Wrap around your header pipe, using overlap to hold itself in place (like a hockey stick or tennis racket grip) use Thermal-Tie, hose clamps, or wire to secure ends in place.

Shielding AC lines can help to keep your drive more enjoyable even in the hottest summer months. Shielding critical wire harnesses can prevent them from premature failure. Keep the oil flowing into your transmission or turbo oil line by shielding it from heat.

Heatshield Thermal Barriers – Prices start from £29.17

Thermal barriers are designed to shield radiant heat. This can protect you from uncomfortable conditions by using on the firewall, floor pan and above exhaust system. It can also be used to improve the optimum performance of cold air intake systems.
