K-Series supercharger set for MGF

One of our in-house developed K-series Rotrex supercharger kits is all-set for installation into an MGF.

Whilst there will be a small amount of tweaking required to ensure everything fits correctly in the confines of the MGF engine bay, our Lotus Elise supercharger kit should be a straight fit.  With our well-tested Elise chargecooler alongside, the kit should be good to produce 250bhp and 200lb/ft.

We test fit every kit we assemble prior to despatch, to ensure that there should be no issues with fitment on your own engine.

See our online store for further details of this excellent engine upgrade package.

Racing Successes in Lotus Cup UK & Elise Trophy

We’ve had a positive racing season so far, with all of our drivers doing very well in their novice years.

Our best overall team performance came at Rockingham in May, where we scored a 1st,2nd, and 4th in class, in the Lotus Cup UK race.  James Little (car 34) drove a great race to pip team mate Richard Hywel-Evans (car 99) in second, whilst Nick Pink (car 36) held on for 4th place.  The guys were rightly pleased with their race weekend after coming close to taking over the whole podium!

James continued his excellent run of form at the Brands Hatch Lotus Festival rounds, where he made another podium after an exciting Elise Trophy race mixing it with the championship front-runners.  He then followed this up with a 4th place, just fractions of a second off another podium in the Lotus Cup race.

 

Things came good again for the team at this weekends Donington rounds, where on Saturday we achieved a 3rd, 5th, and 9th placed finishes in the Lotus Cup race. In car 36, Nick Pink started well, with Scott Mansell taking over at the pit stop, finishing up in a commendable 9th place. Richard Hywel-Evans had a steady run through to 5th place, whilst James Little scored himself yet another podium finish.

With just one round to go, Richards consistency sees him sitting in 4th position in the Lotus Cup UK Production class, just two points behind 3rd place, so it’s still all to play for. The final race is on Saturday 1st November at Snetterton, and is a two-hour race, starting at sunset – should be challenging and entertaining!  The team from EAAA will be with us, to round off another year of supporting this vital charity.

Hangar 111 Racing into 2014

Following on from our previous two years successful racing activities, Hangar 111 Racing goes into 2014 bigger and better than ever.

For the upcoming 2014 season, we will be running three cars in both the Lotus Elise Trophy and the Lotus Cup UK championships. Joining last years S1 Elise, is a newly built S1 race car, and a brand new Elise Cup R!  All the cars will run in the Production classes of both championships, and so remain relatively standard, within the bounds of the regulations, which result in a power to weight ratio of around 200bhp/tonne. With a mixture of sprint and endurance races, it provides lots of close and exciting racing.

With three novice drivers, it promises to be a learning experience for all, but we hope to see some good progression throughout the season as the cars and drivers alike, develop.

Check out the race calendar at LoTRDC, and come and share in our track exploits during 2014.  All races will also be shown in a highlights package on Motors TV, soon after each race meet.

Racing for East Anglian Air Ambulance

Our successful 2013 race campaign continues with a little extra, in the upcoming Lotus Elise Trophy season finale.

In support of the East Anglian Air Ambulance, our familiar S1 Elise race car, will be transformed to carry the EAAA livery. The fund raising team will join Hangar 111 at Snetterton on 26th October to help raise awareness of the life-saving charity, with Andrew Bentley continuing his championship campaign.

‘Supporting the EAAA is something we are happy to do because there are so many synergies between our respective operations. In our motorsport activities, precision, timing, knowledge and instinct are all critical elements – if all these come together we win races. We believe the same thing applies within the EAAA operation, from the pilots skills in bringing the aircraft into and out of complex situations, through to the medics who need to be fast and accurate in order to make the aircrafts presence even more valuable’.

Come and see us racing at Snetterton this weekend, and add your support to this most worthy cause!
