We visited Cadwell Park this weekend to support our sponsored driver start 2016 defending his Pocket Rocket title at the first round of the Time Attack championship. We caught up with Stewart Summers after the morning warm up and it was clear that one competitor had upped their game significantly over the winter. Robert Oldman in his turboed Ford Fiesta ST was flying and seemed to have the edge over Stewart throughout the day by mere hundreds of a second in both practise and qualifying. As Stewart set a the fastest time, Robert would always go another few hundreds quicker. He looked comfortable for the win!

So it all came down to the final for Stew to find that little extra and give us the drama we wanted. Oldman set off at a rapid pace but in the final few minutes of the session found himself having to overtake traffic. Meanwhile Stew was demonstrating the skills that won him that Championship trophy last year. His Citroen Saxo stormed through the Hall Bends with the speed and accuracy of a cruise missile. The sheer focus of the drive paid off! A class winning time of 1:39.486 smashing the lap record, over a second faster than second place and maybe more surprising to some, the fastest FWD car of the day, beating all the Club FWD cars too!

Fancy building a car like Stewart? Well you can! For those with a great eye for detail, you may notice the Satchell lower strut brace under the car, or maybe even those BBM adjustable top mounts!!
