Leastone boss Paul Heavey made a successful return to the Leastone 1000 cockpit last weekend, when he and Brendan O’Brien visited Anglesey for rounds 5 and 6 of the Monoposto Tiedeman Trophy. O’Brien made his second appearance of the year in his Global Services Centres  Leastone, while Heavey took over Max Harts usual mount.

With Saturday testing helping both drivers get back up to speed following a long lay off, they were greeted with a damp coastal circuit come Sunday. Heavey opted to slicks, with a drying line appearing, however a light but p...

Max Hart rounded out his successful 2019 with a brace of podiums at rounds 3 and 4 of Monoposto's Tiedeman Trophy at a sodden Pembrey last weekend. Hart was joined by David Heavey, who returned to the cockpit for the first time in 2 years, securing a pair of top 6 finishes overall.

Qualifying saw the driest conditions of the weekend, even though the track remained slightly greasy following solid rain throughout Friday. Max took advantage of the tricky conditions by jumping quickly out of the box and securing his time early on, sealing an impress...

It was great to finally be back at the home track! Testing on Friday went very well. I needed to try get as many laps in as possible and with every lap I happy to be improving speed and consistency.  I was really looking forward to racing on Saturday with the BOSS Ireland class, which had some impressive machines on show.

Qualifying went well on Saturday morning. I managed to get a P8 out of the 18 on the grid, I was happy with that considering the cars we were up against....

Race 1 on Saturday afternoon I was lined u...

The final two rounds of Monoposto 1000 took place Saturday and Sunday in Brands Hatch on the mighty Grand Prix Circuit. We tested on Friday, but it was only the Indy track for testing so it wasn’t a huge amount of help, so I just got myself into the right mindset for the weekend ahead and a reminder of my first ever race in both the car and the track!

Qualifying was going to be a massive learning curve, it is a very technical track, with some very brave and impressive turns. I qualified P5, getting out early to get some clear...

We woke to a very damp Silverstone Circuit on Friday morning for testing. I had a new engine to run in so getting the feel of the track, along with running in the engine meant that the testing sessions 1 - 3 were very slow, but it was bucketing down so I didn't mind too much.

The final session, which I was looking forward to getting out on the track and learn the track at a proper pace, getting a feel for it but the track was deemed unsafe for testing and was red flagged!

So, qualifying was to be my learning curve, not for the first time...

Brilliant weekend of racing and a lot of hard work in between!

Testing on Friday was a great way to get grips with the track, which proved a challenging track to learn with amazingly long straights and a lot of tight and tricky corners. The first two sessions helped me get to know the track, and sessions three and four were planned for pushing myself and my Leastone 1000.

Unfortunately, during the 3rd session I pushed a little too far leaving a lot of hard work for my team on Friday night to be 100% for qualifying on Saturday morning, at thi...

Paul Heavey and the Leastone team returned to their home track last weekend, following their recent top 5 at the Anglesey Circuit in Wales last month. With limited testing, Heavey was not 100% happy with his JH004 and this carried into qualifying where he logged a time good enough for the 3rd row.

The initial foray was cut short after just one lap, when an incident brought out the red flags. When the race got underway proper, Heavey made a solid start to hold position for the opening few laps. During the opening phase, he was in hot pursuit of 5...

Castle Combe Circuit - we will definitely remember this track for all time to come...the place where I got my 1st win! 

Getting to know the track in testing on Thursday was unusual, but there definitely was lots to learn.  The distance on the track was 3km, fast paced, with some great chicanes. Throughout the 4 testing sessions we steadily progressed quicker and quicker as I gained confidence. Having 4x15 minute testing sessions was definitely better than the 2 half hour session format we usually see, as I got an opportunity to get out and debri...
