Update from Morgan Jagger Racing

This is a amazing write up from one of Opie Oils sponsored Drivers. Opie Oils are happy to sponsor Morgan Jagger Racing thought out the 2016 season.

This month’s practising has been a blast, and progression throughout the team has been a phenomenon. The mechanics analysing Morgan’s racing have had a very precise feedback from the driver during our time at Mansell raceway and confidence has grown throughout and with our sponsors backing him up 100% of the way as well as help from Gabriel Abbot racing and his Team-mate Alex our team has had that extra push and learnt new techniques and that has allowed him to achieve a new fastest lap time of 52.350s. This to the members of the team is progression for Morgan and proof that he is starting to go over his limits.

Gordon Shand and Phil Hyde “Team Shand Racing” travelled to the second round of the “ACU/FSRA British F2 Sidecar Championship” at Silverstone which was running alongside the “BMCRC-MRO Championship. It was a trying weekend for the team. After years running Suzuki 600 engines, the team decided to change to Honda power. Driver Gordon worked throughout the winter getting the Honda units fitted into the “Shand Chassis”. However due to work commitments the team did not have much time testing and development with the machine.

Chris Brown write up of Lydden Hill Race Report.

Hi Folk’s

This is a write up from Chris Brown who is an Opie Oils sponsored Driver.

For once in my life I was pretty organised for this race event which made a lovely change being a lot more relaxed the day before the event rather than running around like a headless chicken. Friday saw me going to pick up the race car mid-afternoon to bring it home for the last tiny bit of prepping before the race the following day. The car had already been checked over and was ready to go mechanically.

Opie Oils Sponsored Rider Ben Harrison write up of Castle Combe Round 6 & 7 Race Report

This is a write up from Ben Harrison of round 6 & 7 of the 2015 Formula 400 championship.

After a long break since Oulton Park I headed to Castle Combe to continue the attack on the 2015 Formula 400 championship.
Castle Combe is a track I have very little experience with having only raced there once in 2013 and if I’m honest I didn’t enjoy it at all, so I wasn’t sure what the weekend was going to have in store.
I was also riding the Averys Motorcycles Honda cbr1000rr in the powerbikes race on the Saturday, it was my first time riding the bike and riding a 1000cc super bike so it was going to be a wild ride!
