This is my 5th year in a row, that I have won in this race series and also got an award during end of season night for setting fastest time of the year!
It was a lot of work involved behind the scene to achieve this results, but with such great support from my sponsors,family, friends and supporters the almost impossible became reality! With massive credit to Scoobyclinic, who did an amazing job by keeping me up and running all season! Fastest car overall even with downgraded engine in most events! The professional set up truly means a lot in the way car handles on track!
In terms of Barrel Sprint and Formula G Championships sumup, it was many ups and downs, especially, that I had not very good start to this season due to some issues car developed from 4 years in service, but have picked it up very quick by taking podiums plus extra points for setting fastest times overall. This was enough for me to claim my Barrel Sprint Championship win without entering the final round for the reason, that SCR Subaru was sailed off in sea and currently on the way to South Africa for the Monster Energy Gymkhana Grid.
But even so, to make the last day of FBS boosted, I entered the FWD class with my old 200bhp 1995 Honda Civic. It was not much of a competition in this class due to a lack of entrants, but I manage to bring another podium home with fastest time and the win in knockout battle. Then later a week finding out at end of season award night, that I have actually set fastest time of the year in Front Wheel Drive class as well as in AWD class. That was a bit of surprise even for myself, but I knew, that this little car was a smasher!
Nissan Skyline GTR R32 was the first one to get tested and I must admit, that car is an amazing piece of history in both street and track racing, but with it being set for road use, it was not able to complete the very tight and twisty Gymkhana track without further modifying to fit for purpose process.
I would like to say massive thank you to all at Fueltopia team for making the series going strong and very enjoyable with all the professional track set up and timing systems, from Portatree lights and timing to Icaris timing track monitor app! It all really works well and enables to make any changes on car during event and see the difference in times, so any advantage after modifying can be easily determined and finalised! Special thanks to all media guys and girls, to capture the moment sometimes takes a while while to catch a great moment can take the whole season. Thank you all! Some of the shots are here on the right
Week later at end of season Fueltopia 2017 Award night I was very excited to receive this lot of trophies, with massive thank you to everyone involved! It was a great year with many memories to keep me warm during the winter
On top of individual results me and my SCR team mate Bucky have won Barrel Sprint Tuner Challenge as Scoobyclinic team!
Thats the wrap for Fueltopia series this year, but I still got a job to do in South Africa at Monster Energy Gymkhana Grid and then in December I will hit the final round of Scottish Gymkhana Championship... So its not over just yet!
