Timothy Lyons showed his improving form in a Radical this weekend at Donington by qualifying 4th & 6th for the Clubmans Cup and running well in the UK Cup.
Timothy is coached by - and race with - Anthony and the two have been working together closely to improve his pace.
"Timothy's basic driving ability was never in question" said Anthony. "He always had good control and a fluid style but we just needed to bring out his confidence, particularly in corner entry speed which can be a challenge in these high downforce cars". Timothy was for the first time within 102% of Anthony's pace over the weekend and a number of front running competitors commented on his speed.
He ran in the top 7 in both Clubmans Cup races, finishing 7th in the first and looking like a top 6 was likely in the second, although a red flag and a subsequent difficult restart prevented this and he eventually finished 12th.
In the UK Cup a good run in the first race was stymied by a blown engine which prevented them from competiting in race 2.

Congratulations to Christian Pedersen on taking his first ever class victory at Mallory Park this weekend in his Austin 7. Driving in the 750 Trophy race, Christian totally dominated the day, putting his car on Pole Position by 1.5 seconds and streaming away in the race to win by over 20 seconds from John Skeavington.
Christian is an IWannaGoFaster.com customer and Anthony was on hand during the day to lend advice and any coaching tips.
Congratulations Christian - let's hope it's the first of many!

Anthony made a short trip to the Abu Dhabi Yas Marina circuit to help coach Radical SR8 driver Manhal Allos in the final round of the Radical Masters Championship. Anthony was on hand to lend his coaching advise, having guided novice Barry Gates to the Radical SR3 UK championship in 2007. He also performed a few 'datum' laps in the car to help Manhal get close to the pace.
Despite having overheating issues due to the extreme temperatures of the Middle East, Manhal drove very consistently, improving his vision and overall technique throughout the event. Although it was the first time they worked together, he was pleased with Anthony's input:
"Thank you very much for a very informative and detailed analysis which is very useful. I benefited greatly from your input.... I think your concentration of vision is very helpful and I found that helped me a lot being quite accurate on apexes."

Anthony helped new clients TImothy & Oliver Lyons learn Spa-Francorchamps in their Radical SR3.
Both had a fantastic, incident free time and thoroughly enjoyed their first visit to the magnificent venue! Anthony also used Racelogic's fantastic Video Vbox to record the video & data.
Ex-Formula Ford racer Timothy and his sons Oliver and Oscar plan on doing more track days in the Radical view to racing in the future.

Congratulations to IWannaGoFaster.com client Colin Millar who won 3 out of 4 races in the Quaife Radical Clubmans Cup this weekend at Pembrey in his SR3 RS.
Colin had never driven at Pembrey before prior to the race weekend and enlisted Anthony's help to learn the circuit after working with him to learn Croft prior to his race wins there in 2009.
Anthony - who still holds the unofficial Radical SR3 fastest lap of Pembrey at 52.7 seconds in qualifying 2007 - worked with Colin for free practice on Friday. Colin then qualified on Pole Position and dominated the weekend, comfortably winning outright in 3 out of the weekend's 4 races and finishing 2nd in the other after a poor start off the grid.
The result keeps him ahead in the Supersport Category and moves him closer to the overall title lead.
