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!

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
Bilt Hamber Double Speed-Wax – Won Best Car Wax 2015

Opie Oils is a big fan of Bilt Hamber products, many of us use these products on our own cars and we are always pleased with the results. The good news is, you can buy all these (and more) Bilt Hamber products on our web site, you can find them in our Bilt Hamber section > > >
