MOEELLC3Say hello to Millers Oils NEW Flowcontrol bottle, In recent years Milllers Oils Ltd has been at the forefront of innovation with their range of products, they have now applied this innovation to a select range of engine oils (excluding motorsport oils and classic oils).

It looks like the team at Millers Oils have the solution, these new flowcontrol bottles allows the user to position their 5 litres of oil directly over the oil filler cap and use the screw valve to control the amount of oil flowing into the engine.

This short video narrated by Tiff Needell explains the journey that lead to this fantastic design and how to use the Flowcontrol bottle.

FPW Racing Successful Test at Donington – Motul / Opie Oils Delivery

Over the last few years Opie Oils have been proud sponsors of FPW Racing and we are pleased to announce that with the help of our friends at Motul this will carry on for 2014. The team have returned from a successful test at Donington and taken delivery of Motul products. Looks like 2014 could be a good year for the team, take a look for yourself:

FPW Racing duo of Greg Greenwood and Milo Ward took to Donington Park in what can only be described as typical British weather. As both riders drove to the circuit is was clearly apparent that a day of wet testing was on the cards. Obviously not an ideal start to their 2014 season, especially as Donington is notoriously difficult in the wet conditions.

Greg was more than aware of what he was up against and once out on track in the first session he set about relearning the circuit and gradually building up to speed. This was a very gradual process as the conditions remained the same all morning. That said, Greg improved his times in every session and by the end of the day was a full six seconds faster than when he qualified in the Motostar championship in 2013 here at Donington. It was clear that this was a new Greg, buzzing with confidence and enjoying his riding like never before.

FPW

Greg Greenwood: “I’ve spent all of the winter preparing my bike for today so it was finally good to get out and enjoy the day like I did. Everything felt right today and while I started slow I never felt on the edge as I built up my speed. Knocking six seconds off my lap time wasn’t something I expected so I am over the moon with that. This is the best start to a season I’ve ever had and I can’ wait for Brands to come around”.

FPW This week also saw the team take delivery and fit a new 2014 spec Geo Technology S.A. Moto3 engine. The company provides race ready Honda NSF250R engines to both world and national championship teams and for the past four seasons has built the 600cc Moto2 engine for the world championship. Geo Technology specified that the new engine provided has a 3 BHP increase in power over the 2013 engine and this is exactly what the team saw when we ran the bike on the team dyno this week. These are the upgraded (for 2014) version of the engine that Joe Francis to the title in 2013.

This week the team took delivery of their Motul Sponsorship package and what a delivery that was. Support for the team comes from both Motul UK and our long term sponsor Opie Oils. The season supply will see the team use Motul lubricants in both it’s Moto3 and 125GP machinery.

All of the Motul product line can be purchased from Opie Oils the UKs leading online distributor for both two and four wheels (www.opieoils.co.uk).

FPWAdrian Mason: “The new engine did exactly what the team at Geo said it would do when we ran it up on the dyno. The peak power is so impressive but it’s the torque that’s the real eye opener. The rider has the same level of torque throughout the racing rev range and I can’t wait to see this out on track.

When all of the boxes arrived with the lubricants and cleaners it was quite humbling to see the level of support our five riders are getting. I cannot thank both Motul and Opie Oils enough for what they are doing. Interestingly we ran back to back tests on the Moto3 using a leading brand and our Motul 300V and we saw an improvement in power just as Richard Barrett had predicted. We are going into this season in a very strong position”.

Opie Oils sponsor Mike Inglis race report of his two 750 Trophy Races at Donington Park

Mike Inglis, one of Opie Oils sponsors started off his 2014 season racing in two 750 Trophy Races at Donington Park.

Below is his report on both races:

“We had two 750 Trophy races on the Grand Prix Circuit at Donington Park on Saturday 29th March 2014. I had never raced on the GP circuit before and was a bit apprehensive as the two hairpins on this circuit would not suit my car at all, with its high revving supercharger it is best  on circuits with long fast corners and it is not at all good at accelerating out of slow corners.

The weather was kind to us, with a warm sunny spring day. I managed a 2:26.74 in qualifying, which to my surprise put me 5th overall on the grid, fastest Class A car and amazingly nearly 4 seconds under the previous lap record.

In race 1 I made a good start gaining 2 places by the first corner and I managed to hold onto 3rd overall until the faster Class C cars eventually caught me at the hairpin, but I struggled on to manage 4th overall and 1st in class with a new official lap record of 2:27.83.

Race 2 started at 5.50 pm with the light fading fast. I made an even better start from 5th on the grid and was second into the first corner. Again the Class C cars caught up and passed me at the hairpins , but I clinched 5th overall at the flag in near darkness and another 1st in Class A.

The next event is at Silverstone on the National Circuit on 3rd May, again with 2 races.”

Thanks for the report Mike and good luck at Silverstone, we look forward to hearing how you get on.
