No Limits Racing – Donington Park GP, 16th-17th May 2015 Race Report

Team Pittys Custom Vinyls Racing headed to Donington Park again, this time to compete in the Pirelli Super Series 600 Championship, run by No Limits Racing on the full GP circuit.

As a wildcard entry Pitty had to run in the senior class for the weekend, meaning that this was going to be a tough weekend.

The aim of the weekend, however, was to improve the bike setup, gain more tracktime and reduce laptimes in preparation for the Thundersport GB round later in the year, so the choice of class was less important.

Qualifying on Saturday morning was Pitty’s first taste of riding in a mixed class of 1,000cc and 600cc bikes, but the fast pace saw him within 0.6 seconds of his personal best ever lap and qualifying in a very credible 26th place overall, and 15th in class.

Race 1 saw Pitty getting his trademark great start getting himself into the heart of the action into turn 1.  Once the first lap had settled and the pack started to string out Pitty found himself chasing down a two rider battle in front, closing the gap as he picked up his pace lap on lap.  Cruelly just as he made it onto the back of the battling pair the race was Red Flagged on lap 6 due to an incident, meaning the race result was called at the end of lap 5, ending the race where he started in 26th overall and 15th in Class.

Race 2 was held on Sunday, Pitty lined up 29th on the grid for the race that was scheduled to go 12 laps, however after 2 riders fell at Craner Curves on the first lap, the race was Red Flagged immediately.  Lining up for the re-start, the riders set off for the warm-up lap, but again a crash at Craner Curves called another stoppage before the race had even started.  After a long delay on the grid, the race was finally started at a reduced race distance of 7 laps.  This time the race was away cleanly but with all of the disruption, Pitty found himself making mistakes throughout the race finishing in 24th overall and 15th in class again, but beating his personal best laptime by 0.45 seconds.

Race 3 saw Pitty line up 25th on the grid.  The focus for this last race was on laptimes, with changes to his riding style to try.  He got another great start but soon found himself some free space to really work on the changes, which worked exactly as planned seeing Pitty smash his personal best laptime by a full 1.8 seconds, and finishing the race 18th overall and 11th in class.

With all objectives for the weekend achieved, and 7 Championship points in the bag, the weekend can definitely be classed as a success and the team also now have good settings for the coming rounds.

The next outing for Team PCV Racing is their local round at Oulton Park on June the 27th.

 

Thundersport GB Round 2 – Donington Park National, 10th-12th April 2015 Race Report

Team Pitty’s Custom Vinyls Racing arrived at the circuit late on Thursday night and setup ready for the first test day of the year on Friday, in preparation for the weekend’s racing.

A very hot and sunny Friday was spent working on a new setup on the Triumph 675 Daytona, after extensive suspension work over the winter with TW Suspension Tech of Preston. By the end of the day Pitty had a suspe...nsion and gearing setup that he was happy with for Qualifying on Saturday morning.

The team were greeted on Saturday morning however, by rain and a very wet track, meaning that Pitty had to take to the track with as yet untested wet settings. All was well though as he qualified 31st on the grid (from an entry list of 52 riders).

Race 1 bought back dry conditions and Pitty’s first race of the season. Having got a great start he got involved in an intense battle with two other riders throughout the race, making a big effort to make up two places at the very last corner, only for it to be ruined by the leading back pushing through mid-corner, resulting in being back in his starting position of 31st at the chequered flag.

Race 2 saw a very similar story for Pitty, battling throughout the race, swapping places regularly all the way to the flag, this time losing out a little and finishing 32nd.

The Grid positions for Sunday’s races were determined by the best laptimes throughout Saturday, this unfortunately dropped Pitty back onto the front of row 12 in 34th place on the grid.

Warm up on Sunday in the dry was cut short after just one lap by a Red Flag after a faller at the Roberts Chicane.

Race 3 saw extremely windy conditions all around the circuit making riding conditions very difficult, catching many riders out during the race. Pitty however, got another great start and hung on well to the pack and crossed the line in a very credible 26th place.

The weather played its part in spectacular fashion for Race 4, with the sudden onset of heavy rain 4 minutes before the start of the race. Great work by the team saw wheels changed in very short order and Pitty heading to the grid on full wet tyres. This was to prove a race of attrition in the very slippery conditions, Pitty managed to get up to 18th place during the race but then suffered a big slide on the way down to the Old Hairpin on lap 6, resulting in a short trip across the grass and mud, rejoining the track in 20th place, which is where he managed to finish the race.

Overall, Pitty and the team are very happy with a solid start to the season in what is proving to be an even more competitive Championship than last year.
