Mag 7 at Silverstone With Mk sportscars

We had a great day at Silverstone national circuit on Saturday watching the Mag 7's Racing, We was invited up with Danny Keenan of Mk sportscars who was racing his Busa Mk Indy RR race car for the first time in the mag 7's,

Kitcardirect are happy to be working with Mk sportscars and offer there products and can support the south side of the uk,

It is a 40 minute race with a pit window to change drivers or a 1mintue stop,

Danny Qualified 13th on the grid row 6, and was competing against Cars 3 times the value of the Mk Indy rr and the result was a fantastic race to watch, the car looked to be handling very well it was quicker out of the corners and under braking, just running out of top end speed on the straights with the diff he had in top speed 130mph, so the powerful Duratecs would pull a gap on the straights this is the only place he was loosing time,

After the first 5 laps Danny had moved up to 5th place with some great overtaking into Brooklands and luffield, and was flying keeping up with the big 2300 Duratec boys with serious in there cars,

After the pit stops it got a little confusing who was where position wise the end result was Danny finished 8th overall, but 1st in his class and fastest lap in his class, and a trophy for his wares

Superb racing and i'm sure Danny and the Mk will improve over this result on the next race at Brands, Where we think the bike engine will come into its own, as its not a power circuit like Silverstone or Snetterton,

A very good result for the first outing in the mag sevens its a great race series to watch with the grid of 40 cars there is plenty of action,

Thanks for the post Sean.
Glad you came along to show your support.

It was a good weekend for our first time racing in theMag 7's.we have learnt a lot so next time out should be better and shouldn't be sat on the rev limiter half way down the straight.

If anyone is wanting to come along to the next race at Brands it's on May 31st

Thanks Danny
