Opie Oils Sponsor Oldfield Motorsport takes Championship Lead

A brace of podium finishes at Rounds 7 & 8 of the 2014 National Formula Ford Championship has seen Oldfield Motorsport retake the championship lead with their driver Stuart Gough.

The Opie Oils backed team saw Stuart’s Brother Ian, flying back from his base in Honk Kong, join their line-up. Ian would drive the car campaigned by Stuart so far, with Stuart stepping into the team’s second and so far unraced car which had been through significant development. The team therefore held high hopes going into qualifying, which in an ultra close session would see Stuart line-up in 4th position for race 1, some 2 tenths shy of pole position, with Ian 6th just a further ½ tenth back.

With Ian unfortunately retiring early on in Race 1, it was left to Stuart to take the fight to the competition and with some great battling up and down the field, Stuart would take second position, missing out on victory by just 0.031 seconds to Joey Foster.

Race 2 would see a repeat of the battle, at times featuring eight cars, and incredibly it would feature Ian who was on a charge from the back of the grid. Ultimately Ian would finish in a fine 5th, with Stuart coming home in 3rd position having led the race at various points and setting the fastest lap as he did in Race 1.

The results see Stuart leaving Donington Park at the half way stage of the championship in the lead.

Team principal James Oldfield reflected;

“It was fantastic to have both our cars and drivers running at the race winning pace. Naturally it’s slightly disappointing not to win, but this weekend takes our podium tally to seven and it’s our consistency that puts us in the championship lead.

Both drivers did an excellent job all weekend and we were particularly impressed with Ian’s recovery drive in Race 2.

We need to keep pushing more than ever, but with the progress we made again this weekend, we are looking forward to an exciting second part of the championship.”

The action continues in a month’s time at Silverstone (Northampton) on August 9th.

Engine oil service pack look up

Opie Oils Engine Oil Service Pack look up is HERE!

Good news,

Opie Oils now offer an online oil recommendation tool for standard cars where you can find the correct Engine Oil & Filter Service Kits, Engine Oil only service kits and 1 litre Engine Oil Top Up Kits for your car.

For nearly 10 years Opie Oils have been offering oil recommendations and advice on over 1,000 forums and we have now applied our invaluable knowledge to our online recommendation tool. Unlike the majority of our competitors our lookup tool gives a recommendation that provides you with the correct specification oil and amount for a full change plus an option for OEM quality oil filter too!

There are three types of look up you can select:

- Car Service Kit – Engine Oil & Filter

We match our service kit engine oil with manufacturer specifications and fill volumes, and our OEM quality oil filters with an extensive fitment database to ensure you get exactly what you need to service your vehicle. Service kits may sometimes have a little more oil than the fill quantity – ideal for topping up. Comes with a free disposable filling kit with disposable funnel and gloves, dipstick wipe and hand wipe.

- Car Engine Oil (Without OEM Oil Filter)

If you’re looking for the correct specification and amount of engine oil for servicing your vehicle but already have the oil filter then this is for you. These recommendations sometimes have a little more oil than the fill quantity which is ideal for topping up. Again this option comes with a disposable filling kit with disposable funnel and gloves, dipstick wipe and hand wipe.

- Car Top Up Kit – 1 Litre of Engine Oil

Just need a 1 litre top up? Then use this option to get the correct viscosity and specification. With the addition of our disposable top up kit it makes topping up a quick and easy job.

To get your recommendation it’s simple. Select the type of look up you require and then enter your vehicle information. You will then be presented with the correct products for your car with prices and option to add to basket.

In the future we plan on adding additional products to our lookup tool, this includes spark & glow plugs, brake parts, wiper blades and much, much more! We will keep you all updated….

Cheers
