UK Monoposto

Following an impressive Monoposto debut, as part of the Finol Star of Tomorrow championship towards the end of 2018, young hotshoe Max Hart committed himself to the 2019 championship season. He continued his debut form through the opening rounds of the championship, where the 17-year old took a brace of podiums at Donington Park.

Hart carried his impressive form and continued to cause the series regulars headaches in the early phase of the season, securing another two podiums by the time the series marked the mid-way point at Castle...

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...

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...

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...

What a weekend racing! We arrived for testing on Friday, it was wet weather for the morning testing and wasn't ideal for learning the track as it was my first time there. The afternoon was a lot dryer, and it was great to be able to put the car through its paces in the first session. Oulton is a very quick and technical track with a lot of learning about it!  The second afternoon session was hampered by a few red flag incidents so we didn't get much seat time in the dry overall.

Testing is for testing as the boss says so we weren’t too...

We departed from Leastone HQ on Wednesday evening and headed for Dublin port for my first journey to Donington Park. We arrived at the track in the early hours of Thursday morning, managed to catch a few hours’ sleep before setting up and preparing for the afternoon test sessions.

Getting to know the track was going to be the first hurdle to overcome, and getting used to such a high powered car was next! Testing went well, with two half hour sessions just enough to get to grips with all I had to learn, both on the track and in the car for now.

We...
