5Racing goes holy?

At 5Racing we are always looking for simple modifications, and with cold nights and bad weather closing in now here is a little mod that you can try at home. To improve airflow over the radiator we have cut-out 5 holes in the front bumper where the number plate used to be then fitted a strip of mesh on the back to keep out any unwanted stones and fingers! Also we have fitted a nice new Back box just to make sure you can hear us pass you!

Cadwell Park Track Day

I almost cant believe its been a week since we visited Cadwell Park! It was a amazing. All I can say is what a great days action on and off the track! We arrived Saturday after a long drive and setting up camp on a very windy paddock area settled down to the barbecue and a few beers. The Sunday started out dry and windy but the track was still wet and greasy especially where the trees overhang the track. The circuit itself is quite narrow and has some demanding sections. The facility's on site are what you would expect so you can get a bite to eat and a hot drink between the sessions. The vantage points for spectators and photography are spot on, you can also drive round to view areas if the weather is really bad or your not to good on your legs. Our car performed without any problems and the careful preparation paid off again. Everyone had a good day out overall, and we wish to thank all those involved and the people who came along to show support to us and the event.

Anglesey Race Circuit

Over the bank holiday weekend of August 22nd 23rd 24th 5Racing went to a very windy Anglesey race circuit for a track day. We camped on the race track grounds, which was great and saved us a lot of messing about. The track has recently had a lot of ground work done and a new surface, making it great for the drivers and also a good venue for spectators with great views of the whole track!!

The event was well organised and even though the weather was a bit wild, everyone there seemed to have a really good time and there was a great atmosphere. While there we made friends with CADS (Cheshire And District Scoobies) who's members had some stunning examples of the Subaru range. Well done guys we hope to see you again soon.

Visit Anglesey Race Circuit to find out about up coming events....

5Racing Welcome

Hi from all at 5Racing!

We have decided to run this Blog alongside the web site to enable us to use it like a journal to comment on places we have been to. Also other topics not covered yet on our site

Now our car is set-up and running well (touch Wood) we hope to enter as many events as we can. We will also be looking at upgrading the engine and gearbox, but that's another story!!
