Pre Season Race Checks

After a hard and successful season racing the Car Mats UK AWS Racing Honda has been completely stripped, inspected, repaired and upgraded at race HQ. The team has been hard at work using every spare hour of every weekend to go through every component on the car to ensure it is race ready come the first race meeting on April 7th at Snetterton.

We have uncovered a number of small, but significant issues that, left unchecked, would ultimately have caused retirements from races this season. By taking the time to do a full strip down we reduce the risk of some needless failures.

We have made improvements to the braking system for this year by utilising AP Racings latest 4 pot calipers and larger AP discs. The Civic Cup spec engine we ran last season failed at Castle Combe due to a split oil cooler. That unit has now been rebuilt with a few upgrades to hopefully improve our competitiveness this year. With these and a few other mods, the Car Mats UK Honda should remain a competitive package for the 2018 CSCC Tin Tops season.

We hope to provide more entertainment for you all from the front end of the grid as often as possible.

We would like to take this opportunity of thanking Car Mats UK for continuing their sponsorship of the car for another year and we hope to reward this continued support with more great performances.
