  • to make my own way here with the support from my family and now a few sponsors Motorsport is incredibly expensive and we have had to fund every lap so far so my journey is based around funding rather than a career path as was set out for Lewis We have to go to much greater lengths to get known be seen and attract fans supports and sponsors to be able to continue up the ladder At what age did you go from Karts to cars Did it take a lot of getting use to I moved from carts to cars in the middle of 2011 when I started testing the FBMW in preparation for the intersteps championship in 2012 The car was nothing at all like the kart driving was totally different and although the race craft looks similar I really don t see much in the way of crossover I know that extremely good karters often make good race car drivers but I think that s more to do with mentality than the technique What is the car like that you are currently driving The F3 car I drive now is amazing the grip and feel is incredible and the amount that can be changed to get it handling how I like is mind blowing The more work I do with the team and engineer the more I start to understand what s needed and the more they make the car feel how I like then I drive faster it s a great loop for us to continually improve and get faster EMKAY AT THE ADVANCED ENGINEERING 2013 SHOW Emkay are at The Advanced Engineering 2013 Show again this year please let us know if you would like to see us or come and find us in the Composites Engineering section booth C185 to enjoy our complimentary bar To register for your free entry tickets click here Your next race is following the F1 Grand Prix in Belgium Spa Francorchamps race circuit used to be twice the size it is now and was known for being one of the most if not the most dangerous race track in the world due to the fatality and accidents happening on the high speed track Now the track has been modified over the decades and it is now much safer to race on Is this your first race here This racetrack is used as a road usually will this be something new for you also How do you prepare for your races Do you study the track beforehand This year has all been on new tracks to me even Silverstone when I raced at the British F3 was the first time I had raced there Pre season testing was a bit of a disaster with some mechanical and weather issues so in fact I had done 45 minutes at the Nurburgring and a day with engine problems at Silverstone other than that I had no experience of any of the tracks

  • Our car completed this with a noise of 109 9 therefore perfectly engineered Next were the static events Business Cost and Design These events carry 300 points 30 of the competition therefore are essential if you want to do well at competition With our best ever results in all three we were very satisfied with our performance Business resulted in 19th out of 88 teams 61 75 points Design 30th 110 150 points and cost 2nd out of 88 teams 87 100 points Overall after the static events we were 2nd of the UK teams and 6th overall Going into Acceleration and Skid pad on Saturday morning we had one driver fall ill therefore had to call on reserves who had never driven those events in this car before Following some decent times considering driver s inexperience we prepared for Autocross qualifying We went out early to ensure we got our runs in and sent our quickest driver out first He me set a 63s lap which was three seconds faster than anyone who had been out at that point however the final 150m were coasted since the engine cut out for the final corner and slalom It was an easy problem to fix and we went back out Unfortunately I drove too aggressively and out braked myself halfway through the lap This resulted in an off course however pushing till the end proved there was about 6 seconds to come out of the lap time Our second driver got in the car and proceeded to the start line Unfortunately due to an on track incident we weren t able to start our lap however even with the slow first lap we were still 33rd of 88 teams and looking to be very competitive relative to other cars around us in the endurance On the Sunday we were on track at 1pm therefore the hottest part of the day Our first driver under strict instruction to conserve fuel save the car and to keep the engine cool set out and set fastest lap times of the day whilst driving at 60 speed Following a spin and a stall the car was on lap 7 of 11 of the first stint when an oil line fell off and dropped oil onto the circuit Unfortunately we had to pull out of the endurance to attempt to save the engine It was a disappointing end to the competition however we know how to make the car quicker and more reliable for the next competition and looking ahead to next year Overall we came 26th out of 88 teams Emkay s managing Director Steven King with Dewi at Silverstone What was the Overall experience like The overall experience is like no other I ve had The work that we put into designing building running and driving these cars is huge and to see them out on track setting competitive times is the most rewarding feeling I ve ever had I ve learnt how to run an efficient successful race team how to work in a team and project management I feel so proud to have been a part of Cardiff Racing this last year and am positive we can make next year my final year the most successful yet Now you didn t have much of a break before you went onto Formula Student Germany How was the atmosphere in Germany compared to that of the UK competition Were there new teams you hadn t come across as yet FSG FS Germany is a completely different atmosphere to the UK event It s regarded worldwide and the premier FSAE event and is the one with the best teams competing There are a number of new teams at Germany Numerous American teams fly over and stay and test with German teams but donâ t travel to the UK event Did you make any adjustments on the car for this competition We made a few adjustments to the car for Germany Scrutineering in the UK pointed out an issue with our headrest which was quickly rectified in the scrutineering area This was tidied up before going to Germany to ensure we passed scrutineering quickly without trouble Due to the higher expected temperatures a new radiator and oil cooler arrangement was fitted also How did it go Germany s competition was lots tougher than the UK With less team members and longer days it was also more work on each team member Being in 68th position to enter scrutineering was not an ideal start to the competition Despite getting an initial inspection at the end of the first day it took a further day to pass technical inspection therefore tilt noise and brake must be done before 5pm on the Friday to give us enough time to attempt the Skid pad This was done despite some issues with starting and idling The brake test was attempted at 3pm when air temperature was 38 and track temperature approaching 50 With the rubber laid down from previous brake tests it was very difficult to get all four wheels to lock at once and bring the car to a stop With some setup changes if was completed on the 4th attempt and we were off to Skid pad This brought some more issues into the driver line up One driver was suffering of heat stroke and the other had never driven CR09 before hadn t driven on wet tires before and also hadn t driven a Skid pad before Despite all these setbacks Mike put in a competitive time in his last ever FS event as a competitor Saturday morning was the acceleration event Again Mike was driving in his first attempt at acceleration at competition Despite some shifting issues Mike set another good solid time We debated sending a second driver out when it started raining and we thought it best to diagnose the shifting issues It was found that the alternator was not putting out enough power to
