Welcome to the summer 2013 edition of Pole Position, the magazine for members of the Demon Tweeks Pole Position Club. Inside this edition we have all the news from Demon Tweeks, the BTRDA and 750MC. Demon Tweeks’ on-going commitment to the grass roots of the sport is amply demonstrated with news on racing, rallying, autotests and autosolos. As it has done for more than a decade, the Demon Tweeks Sponsorship Scheme is putting cash straight into the pocket of club competitors. The claims have been pouring in over the first half of the season as drivers claim £200 vouchers each and every time their car is pictured in one of the qualifying magazines. For 2013, the list of qualifying magazines is Autosport, Classic & Sports Car, Karting, Motorsport News and Motorsport. There are still a small number of places available in the Sponsorship Scheme for 2013, so if you are out there competing, why not sign up? You’ve got nothing to lose and could be in the money. Go to www.demon-tweeks.co.uk/PolePosition for more details and an application form.

Demon Tweeks remains committed to grass roots motorsport by retaining strong links with the British Trials and Rally Drivers’ Association and the 750 Motor Club. From the 750MC’s racing schedule, both the incredibly popular Stock Hatch Championship and the Locost Championship have again been supported by Demon Tweeks, while our support for the BTRDA Autotest and Autosolo Championships continues in 2013. We are also supporting the MG Metro Cup, the GT and Sports Car Cup, the Caterham Academy and the Ford XR Challenge. With the season now in full swing, we hope that your year is going very well!


3 Top earner is Scott Moran Photography: Eddie Walder

In the first half of 2013, two drivers were already up by well over £1000 thanks to being part of the Demon Tweeks Sponsorship Scheme, which is run in partnership with Sparco. By the end of June, the total claimed by nearly 60 drivers had already topped £20,000, and another year-end total give-away of £50,000 is looking very likely. For club-level motorsport competitors, the Demon Tweeks Sponsorship Scheme is the best and easiest way of earning up to £2000 in support for the season. Just put the stickers on and go out and compete. Last season, over 150 competitors lodged around 250 claims, each of them worth £200 in vouchers for equipment from the vast Demon Tweeks range. Across the opening weeks of the 2013 season, the claims have been coming in thick and fast from competitors who have featured in photographs in the qualifying magazines, including Autosport, Classic & Sports Car, Karting, Motorsport News and Motorsport.

in the money Top earner by the end of June was hillclimber Scott Moran, with seven claims worth £1400 in his Gould single-seater. Add in two claims for his father Roger, who shares the same car, and they are now £1800 in pocket. Leading the chase of Moran junior to be top claimer for 2013 is BTRDA rally ace Julian Wilkes in his flying 1400cc Vauxhall Nova. His stunning form across the first half of the BTRDA season got his photo printed six times, worth a tidy £1200. Other leading claimers include evergreen racer Rod Birley

(Ford Escort Cosworth), rallycross ace Mark Watson (Citroen Xsara), karters Ben Hingley, James Lay and Lee Harpham, Ginetta racer Carl Breeze and Escort Cosworth racer Nick Williamson. With dozens of other drivers picking up between £200 and £600, it looks like being another bumper year for the Demon Tweeks Sponsorship Scheme. This amazing scheme still has places available for the 2013 season, so if you want to get your share of the pay out, it’s not too late to contact the Sponsorship Scheme co-ordinator here at Demon Tweeks and start earning!

The season started superbly with victory quiet season for Jon. However, he in the first race of the season at Oulton raced his Lister Jaguar in the Le Mans Park, Jon’s home track and one of his support race and will contest the Spa favourite circuits. However, the Classic Six Hours in September in the 2013 season is proving to be the Jaguar E-type. toughest in the history of the championship, with an entry crammed with top cars and drivers. “I’ve got the GT bug at the moment and I’m really enjoying it,” said Jon. “The British GT entry list is incredible and some of the top European teams are coming over for some races. In some ways I picked the wrong time to do British GT, but it is incredibly satisfying if you do well. It is a fantastic experience.” In terms Guy Minshaw of historic racing, it is a pretty

Demon Tweeks has a big history of members of staff being active competitors and that is surely the case again in 2013, with Jon Minshaw leading the way in the British GT Championship in a Porsche 911 GT3R from the Trackspeed team.

Jason Minshaw is also busy contesting the British GT Championship this season in a Mercedes SLS from Fortec Motorsport and bearing the Demon Tweeks logo. Jason has been busy adapting to the front engined GT3 car and has turned in some strong performances across the first half of the season. An excellent fourth place at Rockingham is the stand-out result to date. Meanwhile, Guy Minshaw has been out with the family Chevron B8 and raced at the Donington Historic Festival. He’s also sharing Jon’s E-type in several major classic events including the Silverstone Classic.

Gareth Messham

Jason Johns started racing pro karts in 2000 in a single venue championship at Three Sisters near Wigan. The races are two-hour endurance events. “We have slowly worked our way from the back of the grid over time and now regularly finish in the top 10 with a best finish of fifth in class,” said Jason.

Martyn Quant is competing on asphalt rallies in his 1400cc Vauxhall Corsa. “After winning the ANWCC Stage Rally 1400 class in 2008 it was decided to take a two-year break whilst a new more powerful engine was being built by renowned engine builder Martin Bowyer of Hereford. Although the engine was ready in 2011, other commitments meant that the car was not re-built until late 2012 by Matthews Motorsport. “With the arrival of twins (Tilly and Elliot) in July last year and a family house project to complete, not much was planned for 2013. That was until a new event was announced in February of this year. The chance to run on the inaugural event at a new, local venue is very rare these days,” said Martyn. The event was the Toyota Harlech Stages at Llanbedr airfield near Harlech on the North West Wales coast and long-standing friend and Demon Tweeks customer Chris ‘Sbardun’ Evans was the co-driver. “As usual in rallying it was a long last minute.com week of finishing the car with help from friends and the Demon Tweeks fitting centre guys. After six long stages on very hot and sticky asphalt we were both surprised and chuffed to walk away with 26th overall and second in class.”

Jason Johns Photography: www.styleimage.co.uk

“Grids regularly consist of 30-40 karts which makes for entertaining racing and we have no desire to move on to any other championships just yet. Our goal is to compete in the UK 24-hour pro kart race one year and ultimately race in the Le Mans 24-hour kart race.”

Dave Kimberley

Also karting is David Bate, who competes on a self-prepared TKM Extreme at the Hooton Park circuit at Ellesmere Port. Meanwhile, hillclimb ace Dave Kimberley is readying a very potent Caterham Hayabusa and competed last season in an Empire Force DS600 single-seater. Elsewhere, Gareth Messham has converted a BMW E36 into a full on track day car with full Demon Tweeks livery, just like the old BTCC car.

750mc stock hatch championship

First lap at the hairpin Photography: Steve Jones

Carl Swan Photography: Steve Jones

After four weekends and eight races, Tom Bell is starting to establish himself as the man to beat at the head of the 2013 Demon Tweeks 750MC Stock Hatch Championship. More than ever this year, the Stock Hatch championship is all about the Citroen Saxo VTR and only one of the 30 cars to have scored points over the first half of the season is not a Saxo. Steve Noble is braving the Citroen hordes in his lone Peugeot 106Xsi. With the top three from last season, Joe Ferguson, Andrew Tibbs and Matt Digby, not contesting the 2013 title, Bell was always going to be the benchmark this year having finished a fighting fourth last year. Sure enough, the former autograss racer got his season off to the perfect start in freezing cold conditions at Mallory Park on Easter Monday. With two more wins at Brands Hatch and Pembrey, allied to strong scores in the other four races, Bell is looking very strong. Shayne Deegan, with two wins, is the man leading the chase of Bell, but a no-score in the second Brands Hatch race has blunted his tally, while Jake Farndon and

Lee Deegan, brother of Shane, each has a win so far. Lee Deegan has been particularly impressive in his debut season. With a 44-point gap to fifth-placed Robert Drake and the rest, it will surely be this quartet that battles for the 2013 title.

The second half of the season comprises three more weekends and six races at Silverstone, Donington Park and Cadwell Park. Can the Deegan brothers and Farndon get the better of Bell?

classic stock hatch championship Points positions after round 8: Pembrey, 16th June The Demon Tweeks 750MC Classic Stock Hatch Championship has enjoyed similarly strong support over the first half of the season and it is Lee Scott who is looking good at the head of the points in his Ford Fiesta XR2i.

The Classic Stock Hatch category is for hatchbacks that were available for sale in the UK prior to January 1992, running in two classes for cars up to 1400cc multi-valve and up to 1600cc with two valves per cylinder.

With five wins, two seconds and one non-finish at Snetterton, Scott has built a 49-point lead and will be very hard to catch as the season concludes with three more weekends and six races at Rockingham, Donington Park and Cadwell Park. Fiesta-mounted Martin Cayzer and Martin Fowdrey have scored consistently to hold second and third places but, aside from Fowdrey’s classy win at Pembrey, have not had the pace to threaten Scott. In that Pembrey race, Scott battled home second with a whopping 90kg of success ballast on board.

Imran Khan has taken his Fiesta to two wins, but missed the most recent race weekend at Pembrey, while currently best of the non-Fiesta pack is the Peugeot 205 GTi of Matt Rozier.

btrda rally series After five of the nine rounds of this year’s REIS/Get Connected BTRDA Rally Series, the key leaders are Charlie Payne, Peter Smith and Roger Priestnall. However, that could all change across the deciding four events in Britain’s most popular rally championship. For 2013, there has been a slight refresh to the championship with the inclusion of a ninth rally. September’s Trackrod Rally comes in as the penultimate event and will give the championship a welcome return to the Yorkshire forests. Harrogate-based Payne has scored strongly in each of the first five events in his Ford Focus WRC, most recently co-driven by the hugely experienced Paul Spooner. On round five, the Dukeries Rally, Payne took maximum points to move ahead of early leader Conor McCloskey who missed the Nottinghamshire event while busy getting married. The Northern Irish charger had been the star of the early part of the season, with a dramatic last stage victory on the opening event, the Wyedean Stages in February. McCloskey and co-driver Francis Regan also took top scores on the Somerset Stages in April in their Subaru Impreza WRC and are looking good when dropped scores are factored in.

the Somerset event when his partner went into labour. Anderson retired from the same event with a broken gearbox. In the Silver Star competition for two-wheel drive cars, it is seasoned campaigner Peter Smith at the head of the table in his Ford Escort Mk1, with accomplished co-driver Patrick Walsh alongside. They currently have a 20-point lead over Rob Dennis/Andrew Boswell (Ford Escort Mk2), although Dennis elected to miss the Malcolm Wilson Rally in March in order to contest the Mid Wales Stages the following day. Smith and Walsh also head the BTRDA Historic Cup. An important part of the BTRDA Rally Series is the Millers Oils 1400cc section, which runs ahead of the main field to give the smaller-engined cars the best road conditions. Within the 1400cc division is the excellent BTRDA Rally First, which provides an excellent entry level category for near-standard cars. Overall among the 1400s it is the Proton Satria of Roger Priestnall and Jamie Forrest that leads after five rallies. However, four wins from four starts puts Julian Wilkes and Will Rutherford in a very strong position in Wilkes’ Vauxhall Nova. Nissan Micra pilot Mick Smith currently leads the Rally First section.

David Evans Photography: Nic Ayre

Dave Evans in the Blitz was leading the Gold Star section of the Demon Tweeks BTRDA Autotest Championship at the mid season point. His two wins (his first BTRDA FTDs) and consistently high places gave him a four point lead. However Paul Fobister finished second on the Tim Sargeant Memorial Autotest organised by Knutsford & DMC on the Demon Tweeks Car Parks at the end of June and closed to within a point of Evans. This was the first round of the second half of the season. Fastest driver this year has been Richard Pinkney in his Caterham. With three wins, including the latest at Wrexham, and a second he is favourite to win the championship when dropped scores come in to play. Chris Chapman has been consistent and holds third place while his father Ian continues to develop the Riot. He was rewarded with his, and the Riot’s first win on the CSMA event at Milton Keynes. Stephen Morten won the first round at Curborough but a broken gearbox at Wrexham dropped him from a potential top position. The highest saloon is the Nova of Lee Valentine in sixth place. He’s had two fourth overall positions this year but will have a close battle with Roger Holder.

The BTRDA Silver Star Championship is based on class positions. Rob Rolston and Brian Bridge have been battling in the Mini Class and are in first and third places. Dave Cook, previously seen in his famous Ford 100E now campaigns a Micra with his son Toby. Dave will be a strong challenge to the Minis during the second half of the season. The BTRDA Bronze Star championship is aimed at Newcomers. However you wouldn’t call Toby Cook a novice when

you see this 17-year-old throw the family Micra around the cones. He leads the Gold Star Championship from Kevin Hardwick who competes in the class for road-going cars. As the season progresses with five events remaining in the North East and Midlands there will be some close battles before the Lancashire & Cheshire CC Chairman’s Challenge concludes the championship at Demon Tweeks at the end of September.

btrda newcomers autosolo challenge supported by demon tweeks direct

The Autosolo Challenge kicked off in January with an event at the premises of Demon Tweeks. Despite snow preventing some competitors getting out of their homes the event was a successful start to the season. After ten events spread around the country Graham Moore has a good lead but this will be challenged as dropped score come in to play in the second half of the year. At present the Mazda MX5s lead but small hatchbacks are still popular. David Graves will be hoping that his new Sports KA, bought as a replacement for his previous KA written off on his way home from an event, will prove successful. This year the emphasis of the Challenge continues to be on the newcomers with the experienced Autosolo drivers tackling the BTRDA National B championship. Autosolos provide an introduction to motor sport at reasonable cost with only road going cars eligible to compete.

750mc locost championship After eight of the season’s 14 races, Alastair Garrett has a useful lead at the head of the title race for the Demon Tweeks supported 750 Motor Club Locost Championship. After eight of the season’s 14 races, Alastair Garrett has a useful lead at the head of the title race for the Demon Tweeks supported 750 Motor Club Locost Championship. Once again, the Locost series is delivering fabulous racing for some of the smallest budgets possible in British club racing. With 60 drivers already having scored points this season, the category sometimes needs three races per round to ensure that everyone gets to race twice. Garrett, who finished third in 2012, has eked out a 28 point lead over Richard Jenkins after four of the season’s seven double-headers and is going to be tough to catch with more double-headers at Silverstone, Donington Park and Cadwell Park to wrap up the programme. Garrett has been strong everywhere, with four wins and three more podiums in seven starts. Only once has he not finished on the podium when edged back to fifth place in mighty 41 car field at Snetterton. With five second places, Jenkins is the closest challenger to Garrett, but would love nothing more than to score at least

one race win over the second half of the season, while Danny Andrew is third despite a torrid weekend at Castle Combe that netted just three points. Lee Bankhurst has a win and three seconds in his tally, but missing the Castle Combe races has hurt his title bid. Matt Cherrington, Tom Coller and Sam Bradley have all starred on single race weekends and any of them would be a title contender if able to contest a full season in the two-seater roadsters that use Ford running gear and 1300cc crossflow engines.

caterham academy Since 1995, the Caterham Academy has brought nearly 700 novices into racing in a controlled and supportive environment, where the newcomers are supported through all the steps of their first season of competition. With a total cost, including the car, of just over £21,000, it is a very attractive package and is usually sold out a long way ahead. Demon Tweeks is pleased to be a partner in this excellent initiative, which started with three speed events across the spring before switching to a programme of four races over the second half of the season.

GT and SporTS Car Cup In the historic racing arena, Demon Tweeks is pleased to provide support for the GT and Sports Car Cup, the-pan European series for pre ’66 GT cars. The mini-series of endurance races started at Silverstone in May with another victory for the AC Cobra of Leo Voyazides and Simon Hadfield. The experienced duo ran out comfortable winners after the longer pit stop for running solo cost early leader Martin O’Connell too much time in his E-type. As he rejoined, O’Connell was jumped for second by the similar car of Mark Pangborn and Jeremy Welch.

Xr ChallenGe For 2013, Demon Tweeks has extended its support of club-level racing by backing the Advantage Motorsport Ford XR Challenge, home to the older XR2s and XR3is. With a seven-event calendar anchored in the north-west, the series offers some of the most affordable racing of all. After five of the 10 races, XR2 racer Michael Heath has a handy lead over the similar cars of Ralph Fernihough and Lee Shropshire, while Adam Burgess has romped clear of the XR3 runners.

After seven of the 10 rounds of the 2013 Drayton Manor Park MG Metro Cup, which is supported by Demon Tweeks, defending champion Tim Grainger has a tight grip on the title and the Kent youngster is on target to retain his title. With typical grids of 20 cars, the MG Car Club race series continues to deliver close and affordable racing for MG Metros and Rover 100s, which means that there is a plentiful supply of low-cost donor cars. After a run of double-headers at Brands Hatch, Mallory Park (in front of live cameras from Motors TV) and Silverstone, Grainger has a perfect score of seven class wins from seven races. Over the first five rounds he was matched by Mike Williams, who took five overall wins. However, running out of fuel on the last lap of the first Silverstone race has severely blunted Williams’ title bid and he now has ground to make up on Grainger over the deciding races at Cadwell Park, Oulton Park and Snetterton. It is Tom Sanderson taking the fight to Williams in overall terms and he scored the win of the season in the second Silverstone race when he caught Williams at the final corner and pipped his rival by a thousandth of a second in a near photo finish. Oliver Hood is leading the chase of Grainger in class B. Mike Williams Photography: Steve Jones

setting the standard

The partnership between Demon Tweeks and Sparco is very special and the fact that Sparco is a key partner in the Demon Tweeks Pole Position Club shows just how strong the bonds are between these two market leaders. Back in 1977, two young drivers from Italy named Enrico Glorioso and Antonio Parisi had a dream of giving motorsports more safety and more style, and founded Sparco. Thirty six years later, Sparco employs over 350 people in five offices spread over three continents: the distribution network reaches 60 countries worldwide. In 1978, Sparco made the first fireproof race suit capable of withstanding 11 seconds of exposure to fire, in compliance with FIA standard 8856-2000 in force at the time. That was just the start, and from then on Sparco continued to improve, year by year, producing ever more resistant suits. 1978 was also the year of the first composite racing seat under the Sparco banner. Other Sparco products were already well known: suits, shoes, gloves and helmets were already being used in highest level competitions, but this was the year when seats became a Sparco speciality. In 1990 Sparco branched out into the tuning business with a range of custom car accessories and as the century ended Sparco made its debut in the supercar world. After buying out the composites division of Simbi-Stampal, Sparco specialised in carbon fibre technology, supplying the supercar industry with innovative sports seats with a perfect combination of safety, technology and style. All the world’s fastest cars use Sparco. In 2009, Dr. Aldino Bellazzini became the majority shareholder in Sparco and extended the company’s focus on product innovation. Safety and style are the fundamental concepts that make the Sparco world turn. Sparco is relevant across the entire spectrum of the sport and, at the highest level, has recently entered

into a new three-year arrangement as an official supplier of the Vodafone McLaren Mercedes Formula 1 team for a further three years. Sparco has been an official supplier to Vodafone McLaren Mercedes since 1996, during which time the partnership has celebrated outstanding success with 78 Grand Prix wins, 76 pole positions and 83 fastest laps. Sparco’s technical experts have worked closely with McLaren drivers, race engineers and pit crew over the past 17 years to develop a series of innovations - including the world’s lightest race suit. “Our strategic partnerships with leading teams like Vodafone McLaren Mercedes enable us to work with the leading drivers, engineers and pit crew in global motorsport. That close relationship allows us to innovate and deliver new technology which increases safety and enhances performance,” said Dr. Bellazzini.

Kleers mOtOrspOrt aerO perFOrmer surFace preparatiOn Kit High performance race cars require aerodynamic efficiency to reduce drag for speed and to create downforce for cornering and braking grip. Foreign objects such as tyre rubber, grime and bugs can easily become attached to the bodywork of the car causing an interruption in airflow and a decrease in aerodynamic efficiency. Kleers have developed a solution to this problem with their Aero Performer Surface Preparation Kit. It has been engineered to achieve the maximum surface performance my reducing the build-up of foreign objects and has been proven to work in wind tunnel testing.

Works on round or oval tail pipes by simply bolting down onto the tail pipe. No drilling of the tail pipe is required like others on the market, making this is a discreet solution that can be removed easily. Originally designed for the Britcar Series to combat the ever increasing noise limits forced upon us by UK Circuits, the engineering team looked at other over engineered items on the market concluding there was no need for the Decibel Slayer to have noise baffling material, the noise

reduction properties of a correctly acoustically engineered perforated tube being adequate. This intelligent design means that the perforated tube which penetrates the tail pipe has an optimised length to leave exhaust gas flow unrestricted, with only a negligible affect on your power output.
