As we’ve missed getting a report together after every single round we’ve decided to compile a full season report with all the video’s and the ups and downs from throughout the seas0n. Civic Cup has been our first competitive racing season, and although we’ve supported teams in the BTCC / Blancpain / british GT and other high end formula’s, this was the first season we would be doing ourselves.

Just a quick note at the start of this is that we’d like to say a huge thank you to both Brentacre Insurance Services and SuperPro Performance Bushes for helping us to get to the grid at the start of the year and for their support throughout. We’d also like to thank unicorn screen print and Ant Whorton-Eales for there endless help with replacing decals throughout the year and Ikon Bodyz for doing a great job repairing the bodywork on the car whenever necessary.

With owning our EP3 for the past four years in a race ready condition we felt it was time to take it to the proving grounds as such, where many Civics have been racing for a number of years to show what our cars are capable of. We also pride ourselves on offering our customers everything on our race car, which has been used over a number of years to test products before we decide to promote and sell them.

Donington Park Round 1

We had completed some testing the Sunday before Donington and the car felt great although we didn’t really have much of a benchmark to know if our times were quick as only a few Civic Cup cars were in attendance on the day.

With scrutineering of the car completed and thankfully passed we headed back to the awning for a final check over and torque check and it was time to go.

Although the Civic Cup grid was populated well, the organisers had put us in to qualify with the MX5 grid (25 of them) and with lower speeds throughout the circuit qualifying was going to be tough. Qualifying as predicted was extremely difficult with not one clear lap however fortunately for us everyone else would be having the same problem. As the 4th lap was completed, to see P1 on the pitboard with 8 tenth gap to the next placed Civic was a relief. With the control tyre being Toyo 888’s we knew we had to get the quick laps in early as they go off extremely quickly yielding lap times nearly a second slower just a couple of laps after the fastest. At this point with the advantage in our hands we decided to pit for a pressure check and change to see if any improvements could be made. With only 5 minutes of the session left although the changes felt good lap times were slower which certainly gave us something to aim for in Race Trim. Now it was just waiting to come over the start finish and see where we placed on the pitboard, P1was displayed which was a bit of a shock due to the traffic we encountered however we were certainly pleased with the results.

To try and improve the longevity of the tyres and balance the grip levels we made some geometry and pressure changes to aid this, As soon as this was completed it was time to reset the data logger and Cameras and head out for Race 1. The grid saw us lining up next to the EP3 of Tegiwa Imports with fast starting EK’s occupying the 2nd row of the grid. After the green flag lap we sat waiting for what seemed like an age for the rest of the grid to form before the red lights came on and quickly went out. With a terrible start we quickly dropped back down to 4th but after the first corner managed to emerge in 2nd.

Sadly our camera wasn’t set to record what was one of the best races Civic Cup has seen. Rich Hockley, 2012 and 2013 Season Champion managed to pass the EP3 of Tegiwa Imports a few corners after ourselves and rapidly started putting pressure on us, what emerged from this was a 12 lap battle between ourselves and the RACE DNA prepared EK of Hockley swapping places over 15 times for the lead, before fortunately for us and unfortunately for the EK he slipped and ran wide on some oil at Old Hairpin giving us a 2 second gap to bring the car home to the finish line.

After Race 1 we spent 3 – 4 hours on the car re aligning and prepping the car for Race 2 on the Sunday, everything from a system check to a re-bleed of the brakes was completed to ensure the car was at the best it could be for the 2nd race.

The Morning went extremely quickly upto our 10:45 slot for Race 2. We did our usual run up 20 minutes before just to ensure everything was upto temperature then the car was quickly lined up on the grid ready to go all over again. Another terrible start dropped us quickly back to 3rd meaning we’d again have to try and gain places quickly to be in with any chance of repeating the previous days successes. After quickly gaining second place we were able to put pressure on the EP3 of Tegiwa Imports and at the start of Lap 2 make a move down the inside into the first corner. Hard on the brakes this move stuck and looking back 2nd and 3rd were immediately battling giving ourselves a chance to pull away. We managed to not only maintain the gap but increase upto the finish line rounding off a perfect weekend which couldn’t of gone any better.

Onto Brands Hatch for Round 2 of the Civic Cup.

Brands Hatch Indy – Round 2

We arrived at Brands Hatch early Morning on the Friday for a Test day before the weekend with not just ourselves, but with Mark Andserson and Nathan Burrell in their EK Civics which we had done some extensive testing with at Donington just a few days before and we would be supporting throughout the weekend.

With gloomy conditions and a very green busy sessioned Test Day we were keen to get as much time in as possible however this wasn’t  the case. With Car’s going off causing Red Flags every five minutes we only managed a total of 17 laps throughout the whole Test Day which ment we were going into qualifying pretty much blind. We did however know we had pace as our combined sectors on the Data showed lap times nearly a second quicker than what we actually did on the day. One massive plus point for us was the Area Motorsport assisted EK of Mark Anderson posting some fantastic times throughout the day, clearly showing some fantastic potential after some changes to his car.

Having been to Brands Hatch many times supporting the BTCC, GT and Clio Cup we were still confident of the lines and the overtaking oppurtunities around this tight circuit.

This weekend for the Civic Cup would be a double header with Qualifying and both Races all on the Sunday, this was great for fans, but for ourselves a slight worry as times between each outing were tight if any damage occured and required repairing.

Going into qualifying the Area camp had a sense of optimism knowing our pace was there from testing although we hadn’t actually had an ideal lap. Qualifying as expected was extremely busy with 22 cars out there on the sub 1 minute lap and to add that the track was wet but drying as we went out. Out for qualifying it became immediately apparent it would be down to a clear lap right at the end of the session on the drying track. The Area Cars made there way out to the front of the line up to ensure we could have as much space as possible in qualifying.

Pictured below – Our Number 6 EP3 followed by the EK’s of firstly Mark Anderson in the Silver Yellow EK and the Black and Green EK of Nathan Burrell.

 


Out for Practice laptimes were tumbling with P1 being held by 6 different drivers throughout the session. Fortunately for ourselves on Lap 15 out of 16 we found ourselves with a clear track and a dry line appearing. Knowing this was the lap to really push on we did so hard and managed to come over the line after previously being down in 4th in 1st position! Both other Area assisted cars had a mixed qualifying with the cars feeling great but paying the price with traffic. This was cemented further when looking at the Data and seeing they both could of done laps putting them in P3 and P4 if they’d managed to get a traffic free lap at the end.

This left the grid for Race 1 with ourselves at P1, the yellow and silver EK of Anderson in P8 and the black EK of Burrell in P10 both keen to make progress in Race 1 as Race 2 grid would be determined by Race 1 Results.

Qualifying Images can be found here:

Area Motorsports EP3:

With just a few hours until Race 1 there was no time dwell on missed opportunity and the Team at Area got to work on ensuring the cars were going to be in perfect condition for Race 1 with alignment checks on all 3 cars and some changes made after a quick de-brief. The main focus was on the EK’s to ensure they were in a confidence inspiring car allowing them to hopefully make progress through the field in Race 1.

The time went quickly and the call went out for us to head upto the assembly area ready for Race 1. Onto the grid with no green flag lap and no heat in the tyres or brakes was certainly going to make it interesting into Paddock and would really depend on who had taken their brave pills as to who would benefit. We were a little concerned as Brands is renound as being a circuit where P1 is certainly not the best position to be in most cases at the start. And those concerns became apparent with a terrible start and being swamped into the first corner putting us back to 7th. A contrasting start for one of the other Area Assisted cars of Mark Anderson who managed to go from P8 sideways around the top 6 and then slotting into P2 a truly fantastic move which must be viewed HERE.  Nathan Burrell in the black and green EK also made progress upto 6th place at the end of the first lap pressurising the car infront. Thankfully although dropping back to 7th ourselves in our EP3 managed to make up 3 positions around the outside of druids and slot back into 3rd and then by the end  of the first lap up into 2nd giving us a good position to push forward with Rich Hockley in the number 1 car snapping at our heels.

3 laps went quickly with us pressing forward towards the Tegiwa Imports EP3 of Luke Sezikowski and on the tail of him into Graham Hill bend we were really applying pressure, however coming round graham hill bend the Ep3 of Tegiwa Imports was massively slow after missing a gear meaning we had to take evasive action to avoid him and in turn this allowed Hockley to go straight from 3rd to 1st and quickly pull a gap. The next lap into paddock we attacked the Tegiwa EP3 and up the inside slight contact was made and we finally made the move stick into Druids, it was now time to push towards Hockley. Meanwhile Anderson and Burrell were both having their own battle in P5 and P6 after making fantastic progress through the field they would cement these positions to the finish line.

1800189_385163094957432_4356781913556991432_n

Pressing forward by lap 10 we had managed to catch Hockley and were just 4 tenths behind him. Through Paddock and upto Druids we made the move for first and thankfully it stuck, we now had 5 laps of one of the quickest drivers in the series trying to get that position back from us. Some fantastic Racing once again between the both of us saw us crossing the line with nothing between us but thankfully us securing P1 after a terrible start, the most satisfying result of any we have had in Civic Cup to date.

Race 1 Images can be found here:

After Race 1 the repeat of the process from Race 1 was performed with all 3 cars being aligned again due to the curbs being harsh around Brands Hatch we were having to do this meticulously to ensure the cars were set as they should be, there were also some repairs performed to our number 6 car after the contact in Race 1.

Headlight out of alignment, wing dented, bumper split all fixed within 20 minutes by the guys from Area.


Race 2 was difficult even pre race for us, as the rain was coming but it was impossible to gauge how far away it was. We had our low tread 888’s and high tread 888s ready and decided to go with the dry tyres which would lead to difficult circumstances later on in Race 2.

Onto the grid Area Cars were occupying Top 6 spots with ourselves in the number 6 car in P1 with Mark Anderson P5 and Nathan Burrell P6. The lights went out and another fantastic start was made by both Area assisted EK’s taking them up to P4 and P5 whilst our number 6 car made another poor get away to round druids in P3 with Hockley leadings and Sedzikowski 2nd. Craig Shore also made a fantastic start making his way up to P6.


We knew at this point straight away to have any chance of catching Hockley we’d need to pass the Tegiwa EP3 as quickly as possible which we managed to do up to Druids on the following few laps with both other Area assisted EK’s keeping pace right at the front. Then, the rain fell…. Hard!. Coming down to Graham Hill bend pretty much every car had a sideways moment but thankfully everyone saving it well. Trying to find the grip on a ever changing track was difficult and Hockley managed to pull out a 2.5 second lead on ourselves by the 5th lap with Nathan Burell in the Black and Green EK making his way upto 3rd but still being pressed by the Tegiwa EP3. The race remained like this with us catching Hockley but with him driving a fantastic Race it was extremely difficult in the EP3 weighing over 250 KG more and really struggling to put the power down.

However coming round to the final 3 laps we managed to be just .5 of a second from Hockley and began to pressure him wherever we could do. With braking off line difficult and Hockley driving fantastically making his EK as wide as possible we couldn’t pass coming over the line with 2nd just .45 off Hockley. Nathan Burrell managed to finish a fantastic 3rd showing great car control in the wet conditions whilst Mark Anderson finished right on the bumper of the Tegiwa EP3 in 5th.

Castle Combe – Round 3

The Civic Cup for this weekend would take a step away from organising body 750 MC to go and join a charity event supported by Honda. We got to Castle Combe early Friday for the test day which was set in torrential rain with no signs of drying throughout the day. Not what you want to be presented with anywhere, but especially at Combe with the reputation it has for car damage. Testing was never going to be easy with changeable conditions and with Mark Anderson having a vibration issue and Nathan Burrell struggling with a brake issue the guys really had to knuckle down and attempt to sort the problem with the resources available to us.

With a new drive shaft for Mark Anderson and a new Brake Bias Valve for Nathan Burrell the guys could finally start to get some laps under there belt. Needless to say, we didn’t really manage to get alot of testing done that day, but the guys managed to do a great job keeping it on the black stuff all day.

Race Day came around and saw us presented with a dry track for qualifying much to the relief of most the grid. Bernard Galea who had been impressive in the first few rounds put in a fantastic lap to gain him front row status alongside our EP3. We knew the fast starting EG would be hard to beat. Mark Anderson and Nathan Burrell both picked up Top 10 spots also.

Race 1 came around as we thought may occur, Galea made a fantastic start to gain him top spot into the first corner, with us following him in. We knew at this point if we didn’t apply pressure and make a move on this first lap there was a possibility he may drive away from us as his pace had been fantastic all weekend. With that in mind and Galea having a slide out of turn 3 we managed to get a run on him down to turn 4 and make a pass. From here forward throughout the first 7 laps we’d be under a huge amount of pressure with Galea pressuring us especially through the chicanes with a much more nimble lighter car it was to be expected.

After an incident at the final corner there would be a safety car and a chance to recompose before what would be a 3 lap dash to the flag. With all the cars bunched up and the pacey Hockley right on the bumper of Galea we knew the pressure would be tough. Fortunately for us atleast, the restart went well and with Galea and Hockley battling it allowed us to gain a gap that we’d be able to carry over the line to finish in P1. Burrell had a solid race finishing in P8 and Anderson just outside the top 10 in P11.

Castle Combe Race 2 would be the first time the Civic Cup would use a reverse grid, meaning Nathan Burrell would start in 3rd, ourselves in 10th and Mark Anderson in 11th. It would be a new experience for us having to to try and fight our way through a field of quick drivers.

The lights went out and after a frantic start we found our selves back down to 11th but making ground around quarry and down through the chicane we managed to pop up in P7, Nathan Burrell found him self having to take to the grass at the chicane and with Galea having to take evasive action this got us up into 4th with Hockley, Gaugler and Kemp infront of us. An unfortunate misshift put Burell out of the race and Anderson was sadly suffering re-occuring issues from Friday testing. As we pressed forward The three in front battling saw us manage to get onto the tail of them out of quarry and with a late dive up the inside of Kemp putting us now up into 3rd. Onto the 3rd lap Hockley made the move on Gaugler who was leading pushing him wide, with the momentum we were able to pull past him on the pit straight and the chase was on. After pressuring Hockley for two solid laps our tyres finally started to go off and Hockley pulled a gap he would hold to the line.

No TV coverage was present at this event but a small montage can be found here:

The next round would see us take to Anglesey, another track we’d never raced at.

Anglesey Coastal Circuit – Round 4

Anglesey would prove our most difficult round yet, with a tight twisty track and not favourable to the standard EP3 gear ratio’s it was set to be a tough weekend. The 4 hour trek began on Thursday evening which took us across country towards the island of Anglesey, with some fantastic scenery we were greatful to be able to do this.

Friday test saw us with a new Customer to support in Chris Coomer with Anderson and Burrell with work commitments, however Anderson would race on the Sunday. This was to be Chris’s first race however he has raced quad bikes succesfully so understood what was required. The test day began with not a cloud in the sky and we had 6 sessions to try and get the car working the best it could do around this tight circuit. By the end of the day and after a number of setup changes going directions we’d never been before we felt like we were somewhere close to where we wanted to be.

There would be a break on Saturday with other series racing giving us a chance to re-prep the car and go over any final adjustments.

Anglesey Civic Cup 2015 Area Motorsport

Anglesey Civic Cup 2015 Area Motorsport1

Qualifying was an early one at 9am, and pushing as hard as we could we’d end up in P4 just slightly behind Seszikowski and Hockley with Galea taking another a fantastic pole a whole 6 tenths quicker than anyone else. Coomer in his first ever qualifying session would place in P12, a great achievment out of a grid of 25 cars. Anderson would place in P16, considering having no testing and only ever attending the circuit a number of years ago it was a good place considering the circumstances.

1PM came around quickly and the cars lined up on the grid ready for the 15 minute race. When the lights went out we managed to get our noses between P2 and P3 at the first corner but with no where to go we’d have to settle in P4 and put as much pressure on as we could. In the 1st lap Galea had already pulled a huge gap and all being well would be able to take his great performance so far over the line.

Coomer had managed to hold position with Anderson making good progress to get on his tail a few laps in.

Anglesey Civic Cup 2015 Area Motorsport3

This would remain the same for all 3 cars to the end with only ourselves dropping back to P5 after a mistake under braking.

Race 1 onboard:

Race 2 would be a reverse grid meaning we’d start in 4th position behind Hough, Evans and Brook Pitchford. Anderson and Coomer would start 10th and 11th. When the lights went out we knew we’d have to make progress quickly with the likes of Galea and Hockley right behind us and considerably quicker all weekend.

When the lights went out we managed to make a move around the outside of the first corner and by the end of lap 2 we were onto the back of Brook in first. With the others battling behind ourselves and Brook managed to pull a gap before we finally made a move that would see us hold onto P1 to the flag, a surprising result considering the struggle we’d had with pace all weekend. Coomer and Anderson would again have a good race with each other coming home in similar positions in race 1.

Race 2 Onboard:

The next round would see us take to Cadwell, another tight and twisty circuit.

Cadwell Park – Round 6

Cadwell Park would be another difficult circuit for the same reasons as anglesey, We were please to welcome to the team Stu Neale who we’d building a car for over the past few months prior to this round. Stu has raced in Go Kart’s aswell as owning various track cars but a novice to car racing. Along with this we’d also be helping Mike Hamlett after completing an overhaul on his car with many of our new parts. Chris Coomer would also again be an attendance after some more promising results at the previous round at Silverstone including leading the race he’d be looking to carry that momentum forward into this weekend.

Testing began Friday with none of our drivers having driven Cadwell for a considerable time. Whilst all of us were easing our way into the day there were various accidents including Coomer hitting the wall at the final turn causing substantial damage to his car and Stu Neale having an off but thankfully both were ok although with slightly damaged cars. Saturday us would see a re-prep of the cars with new pads all round and geometry reset on Coomer’s car after the incident the day before.

Qualifying again was early with ourselves placing in P4 with Galea, Gaugler and Sedzikowski infront of us with Hockley just behind. Chris Coomer would qualify P8 with Stu Neale P11 and Mike Hamlett in P10.

The start would be hectic on such a tight track, Galea bogged down in P1 allowing Gaugler with us hot on his tale to both go around the outside of him up into P2 for us. Coomer would hold position with Hamlett ahead of Neale who would have a great battle throughout the whole race along with Carl Swan in his FN2.

Cadwell Park Civic Cup 2015 Area Motorsport3

Cadwell Park Civic Cup 2015 Area Motorsport1

Cadwell Park Civic Cup 2014 Area Motorsport

We managed to maintain P2 for the first few laps with Hockley right on our bumper pushing us forward towards Gaugler who had made a break for it with a few great laps to pull a gap. By Lap 4 we’d manage to catch Gaugler and had a great run on him down the back straight. With a move up the inside made unfortunately we wern’t seen by Gaugler resulting in contact, however we had gained P1 but with substantial damage. Coming through the mountain section later that lap Hockley would run into the back of Gaugler sadly causing a substantial failure which would put oil all over the track and cause a red flag aswell putting him out of the race.

Whilst the grid was re-forming we were sadly told we would not be allowed to restart the race in P1 the position we currently held, or any position infact, as the scrutineers deemed our damage to severse to carry on. Some terrible news for us and would not only mean we would have our first DNF of the year, but we’d also have to start race 2 from the back of the grid.

At the restart Neale and Hamlett maintained there battle which would see them finish just inside the Top 10 with Coomer finishing in 8th meaning on the reverse grid rules he’d start from pole for Race 2, the chance he’d been waiting for.

The damage that put us out of race 1.
Cadwell Park Civic Cup 2015 Area Motorsport4

Video onboard Race 1 Cadwell:

Race 2 would see Coomer on Pole position with Neale and Hamlett both around P10 and Ourselves starting from the back of the grid. When the flag dropped Coomer would make a great start at the front and put him in prime position to try and get that first victory he’d been searching for. What followed was some fantastic defensive driving with 4 of the quickest guys on his tale the whole race. Coomer would defend tirelessly to cross the line for his first win. It was great to see and although the car was damamged from being hit by various cars he couldn’t be happier. To top it all off Chris was also given 750MC driver of the weekend award, and it was well deserved.

Stu Neale and Mike Hamlett would have another great battle and some good close clean racing to bring them home in P7 and P8.

Ourselves from the back of the grid managed to pull through the pack to P5 but with no grip left we crossed the line a few seconds behind the front 5.

The pressure..
Cadwell Park Civic Cup 2015 Area Motorsport5

Cadwell Park Civic Cup 2015 Area Motorsport6

And that pretty much rounds up Cadwell Park, an up and down weekend. But with 4 cars in the Top 8 in Race 2, it was a great team result.

Donington Park National – Round 7

The final round of a great year of racing would see the Civic Cup head back to Donington, with Championship status confirmed for 2015 and a packed grid of 25 cars it was set to be great final round. We’d be joined by Mathew Webster for the final round for his first taste in door to door racing. Mathew however is not new to the track having competed succesully in Time Attack for 3 years. He’d join us on the test day along with Chris Coomer to try and get some seat time in a car that would be totally different to his 500 BHP Time Attack Car.

Testing went as usual with some setup changes and with Webster getting a good amount of laps under his belt with some decent times towards the end of the day after problems in the Morning.

Saturday would see the usual re-prep and some changes ready for Sundays race day.

Donington Civic Cup 2014 Area Motorsport6

Race Day came around quickly and qualifying was again early morning, our pace was good and saw us clinch pole by 3 tenths over sedzikowski with Gaugler and Hockley in close attendance. Webster would do a fantastic job in his first ever qualifying to put him P9 with Coomer 10th, Hamlett 14th and Neale in 15th.

With some reprep before race 1 done the cars would line up at 11:50 on the grid for race 1. Sedzikowski would get a great start and lead us into turn 1 but after a sideways moment he’d lose momentum giving us 1st and seeing him drop down to P5 for now. Hockley and Gaugler followed us closely.

Webster after a decent start would get pushed wide at Old Hairpin dropping him back down the order to P17, from there he’d have a fight on his hands all the way to the line which would see him finish in P11.

Hamlett and Neale would again end up battling it out with each other over P9 and P10 with some more great clean racing between the two of them, Neale managed to gain a gap and push on in the race to finish P6, Not only a great result but even more impressive considering he started P15 gaining places over much more experienced Drivers. Coomer would manage to hold onto P10 again putting him pole for Race 2 but with gearbox issues it would be touch and go as to whether the car would make it.

Meanwhile up the front we’d come under increasing pressure from Hockley, Sedzikowski and Gaugler and with a coolant leak things became extremely difficult. With Hockley passed Sedzikowski would now be putting pressure on us, which sadly for him was short lived with an Engine issue putting him out of the race, we’d bring the car home in P2 with Gaugler just behind us.

Donington Civic Cup 2014 Area Motorsport7

Donington Civic Cup 2014 Area Motorsport10

Race 2 would see Coomer on pole however with gearbox issues, Neale and Hamlett P2 and P3 and ourselves back in P9 with Webster in P11. The flag dropped for the final round of the season which sadly saw Coomer from Pole take a trip through the gravel. After the first few corners Hamlett would settle in P3 with ourselves in P4 and Neale in P6, Webster had made up ground into P10.

As the positions settled we found ourselves under increasing pressure with Gaugler and ill handling car wouldn’t help things after earlier contact with Shore. This pressure would remain up to the line to see us end up in P4 after losing a few positions over the course of the race.

Hamlett came over the line with one of his best results of the season in P7 with Mathew Webster managing to not only maintain positions but move forward to take the flag in P9. Stu Neale sadly suffered some brake issues meaning he’d finish towards the back of the grid.

So that was it, Civic Cup 2014 was complete, A great job by Shaun Woods and Co for the organisation for the year, we’ll be hoping for more of the same next year, and with more new drivers lined up we’ll only be looking to strengthen.
