The first GAZ Shocks Compact Cup Championship meeting of the year

Event: Championship Rounds 1 & 2
Circuit: Donington Park National
Date: March 29th 2015

Hunter takes emotional win but Roberts claims double

Words: Joshua Barrett

BMW racereportThe opening rounds of the 2015 GAZ Shocks Compact Cup Championship took place at Donington Park this weekend and continuing on from last year’s form an over-capacity field came into the new season. This meant a group system was needed so each driver raced twice in the three-race format across the day. Former champion Steve Roberts claimed both of his races but it was former SaxMax champion Owen Hunter whole stole the headlines with his maiden victory in the championship.

It was a busy Donington National circuit when all 43 BMWs circulated during the 15-minute qualifying session, with all cars running on the Cup’s new Nankang NS-2R control tyres. Ex-British GT champion James Gornall clinched the fastest lap in the wet conditions with a time of 1:43.80 but five others (Roberts, Hunter, Paul Hinson, Mike Tovey and Ian Jones) lapped within a second of Gornall, instantly proving that 2015 is going to be the most competitive season to date.

Paul O’Neill to Race in the Safety Devices | GAZ Shocks Compact Cup Season Finale

Wednesday 1st October 2014

  • BTCC star turned presenter to try his hand at the largest club championship in Europe
  • Races to take place at Donington Park for the final two rounds of 750MC’s Compact Cup

paul oneil bmw smlClub race fans are set to receive an extra degree of entertainment on Sunday 5th October, when former BTCC driver and current TV presenter Paul O’Neill takes to the track in the Safety Devices | GAZ Shocks Compact Cup.

The former Touring Car ace is set to join the action for the final meeting and two rounds of the 2014 Compact Cup run under the 750 Motor Club at Donington Park. Speaking of his upcoming debut in the hotly contested BMW championship, O’Neill said, “I’ve heard good things about the Compact Cup, and the massive grids are the main thing that attracted me to join in.”

O’Neill joins the 44-strong grid as a very experienced racer, having competed in the British Touring Car Championship across a ten year period, as well as various other formulae from British GT to the Porsche Carrera Cup. The field he will be joining in the Safety Devices | GAZ Shocks Compact Cup comprises a healthy spread of experience, from novices through to ex-Formula Ford, Clio Cup and GT racers.

The championship uses the BMW E36 318ti as base cars, which run with tightly controlled modifications to ensure that costs are kept to a minimum; a key factor of the Compact Cup’s success. O’Neill said of his support for club motorsport, “Club racing is equally as important to me as the top tiers because everybody needs to cut their teeth and learn together before hitting the big time. I'm expecting it to be difficult to break into the top 10 with the Compacts though!”
Spectators attending the 750 Motor Club’s Donington Park meeting on Saturday 4th October will also be treated to a BTCC name on the bill, when current eBay Motors driver Nick Foster is to compete in the Roadsport Series using the same race-prepped BMW Compact as O’Neill

Tickets

Day tickets are available on the gate for £15 or £25 for the weekend (children under 13 go free with a paying adult), and track action starts at 9am on both days.

The BRSCC MX5 SuperCup headed to Rockingham Motor Speedway in Northamptonshire for the penultimate meeting of the season. Practice, qualifying and two races on the International Super Sports Car long layout. Early autumn conditions shrouded the Rockingham bowl in mist for much of the Friday test session but as the circuit cleared in the afternoon the times started to come down and despite the long lap, times looked tight between the drivers, setting the scene for yet another fantastic weekend of racing.

Saturday

Practice

Practice got underway in cool and patchy dry conditions on Saturday morning. It gave those unable to test on Friday time to get into the groove prior to qualifying and those who had tested had extra time to fine tune their set-ups. The track surface at Rockingham is surprisingly low grip and saw the drivers slithering around the twisty infield section, but with over 10 seconds of the lap flat out running around the banking, the setup is always a compromise between top speed and ultimate grip. Abbie Eaton topped the times for the session continuing her superb form in the second half of the season. However, championship rival and current points leader Tom Roche struggled way down in 9th. Anthony Nield returning to the grid in the Paul Sheard Autos car went 2nd followed closely by John Davies in 3rd. Also looking quick were Will Chappell and Rob Way in 5th and 7th respectively.  Good times right down the field meant the starting order following qualifying was a tough one to predict.
