Leastone boss Paul Heavey made a successful return to the cockpit last weekend, as he took a brace of podiums during the opening weekend of the 2019 Irish Formula Vee championship at Kirkistown. Despite being away from full time competition for over 10 years, Heavey raced well among Formula Vee regulars, although it was not without its spills on the way.

Heavey took a break from normal protocol by testing on Thursday, ensuring that he had the option of regular Friday testing should any issues with his freshly rebuilt JH004 restrict his track tim...

Testing on Friday was challenging to say the least, with the amount of water that decided to fall from the sky! The track was flooded, pools of water everywhere....I was thinking that speedos might be more appropriate than my fireproofs! It was good to get some wet weather practice though and it added to the fun of driving, as the car was dancing all over the track. We managed to give it our best shot though and managed to learn a few things, despite the conditions. Getting back to brass tacks after the summer break was both enduring and satisf...

Kirkistown March 24th 2018

What an amazing start to my Formula Vee career. 

Having dipped a toe into Formula Vee at the end of last season, the bug truly got me!

Under the watchful and extremely experienced eye of The legend ‘Sir Paul Heavey’, and with sponsorship of Selco Hygiene Supplies secured for the 2018 season, we headed to Kirky for the first round of the year.

At 16 I have ditched my school uniform for my racing suit and headed off for Kirkistown for the first race. Thankfully the journey is long enough to calm the nerves and turn them int...

The Leastone team rounded out the 2016 Irish season at Kirkistown last weekend. Kevin Cahill sought a solid end to his impressive rookie season and he was once again joined by youngster Jordan Daly, who would experience the super fast Northern Irish circuit for the first time.

Despite his inexperience, Daly showed great pace in qualifying out qualifying 2 of the Finol Star of Tomorrow runners. Unfortunately this effort was in vain, as he suffered a heavy shunt at Fishermans late in the qualifying session, damaging the car too much to repair at t...

The Leastone team suffered a frustrating weekend at Kirkistown last weekend, 27th of August. While Kevin Cahill came away with a brace of class top 5’s, team mate Mark Reade came away empty handed through a number of circumstances outside his control. Qualifying went well, with Reade classified 6th overall and 3rd in class, with Kevin also lining up 3rd in class.

That was about as good as it got for Mark, as he was side swiped a few hundred metres from the start, cracking a rocker cover and forcing him to retire on the spot. The only solace was...

The 2016 Irish Formula Vee season kicked off at Kirkistown last weekend, with the Leastone team fielding a pair of JH004’s. Brendan O’Brien returns for his 3rd season of formula vee with his eyes firmly set on the Crowne Plaza championship, a championship he narrowly missed out on in 2015. He has been joined by Kevin Cahill, who will hope to challenge for Finol Star of Tomorrow honours in his first year of motorsport.

 

The Northern Irish weather was anything but kind over the weekend, with Friday testing hit by torrential rain, making it difficu...

The Leastone team travelled north of the border to the Kirkistown race circuit for round 2 of the Irish Formula Vee championship. It was rookie Des Foley’s first experience of the ultra fast Northern Irish circuit and both he and team mates Colm Blackburn and Brendan O’Brien did not have as smooth of a Friday test as they would of hoped.

 

Colm was struggling for overall pace and qualified 9th overall, with Des 13th and Brendan 18th. All three drivers reported various issues holding them back but this still put Des on the front row for the heat w...
