Long long time ago. #formulasheane #kirkistown #singleseater #iwannagofast
A common belief is that to get involved in racing, you need a bank account that would rival that of Lewis Hamilton 🤯
.
However .... that's not the case with Formula Vee! Easily the most affordable single-seater racing, with the biggest grids, and therefore the best racing around.... and we swear we're not biased about it 😉
.
There is still availability to get involved in any of our 2019 championships....if you're interested, why not get in touch with us here for more information!🤩

Before we head back to Mondello this weekend, lets take one last look at our opening championship round in Kirkistown - we need to talk about our driver of the day!🤩
.
There was no question as to who our driver of the day would be. Winning the B/C race, and putting serious pressure on current national champion, Anthony Cross, throughout the whole @selcohygiene National championship race, the driver of the day goes to Jack Byrne!🤗
.
Jack was on top form all weekend, and if the rest of his season continues in the same form, he'll be one to watch for both the B and the Selco Hygiene championship!🙊
.
Read below for Jack's account of how he felt his weekend went 😊
.
.
"The weekend in Kirkistown was by far my best weekend to date. Everything ran very smoothly for a change, and I was getting great results.
.
Friday's testing was very good. We had the car perfectly set up, so that it nearly felt like it was on rails. I felt confident in the both car and myself for Saturday, as I knew I had the pace to be up the front battling for a race win.
.
After qualifying I was very happy with 3rd overall and pole for the B race, this is my best qualifying position so far.
.
The B race I got a great start and managed to pull out a lead but in the later stages of the race Ken Browne managed to reel me back in, which left a good battle for the final few laps. I managed to hold Ken off to take the win.
.
In the A race I got a good start and got onto the back of Dan and Anthony, until Dan made a mistake which left Anthony and myself battling for the lead for the full race. It was my first time to be leading an A race,where we swapped positions multiple times in each lap. After a long race, I just lost out to Anthony, finishing 2nd - which I was still delighted with! That is my best performance to date, so it was a great weekend all-round 🤗
.
A massive thank you has to go out to my sponsors Abbeylawn Garden Products, The Saltee bar and Fitzgerald’s kitchens.
Also to LOH Motorsport for all their help setting up the car and for the advice."
.
Congratulations Jack and all at Jack Byrne racing!

What a weekend it was at kirkistown. As debuts go, we couldn't have asked for more from a first ever race for both team and driver.

From last place and pointing in the wrong direction on lap 1 to the race win in the class was an eventful way to start off! And then a brilliant battle until the chequered flag in the afternoon's national championship race to finish in P6 was way beyond expectations.

A great start to the season, a great start to racing life!

First race weekend didn’t go just as planned. During Friday evening practice an oil pipe came off along the back straight. The weekend was over in my eyes until a fellow racer offered me his spare engine. An act of pure generosity that blew me away. I worked to half 1 and my two friends worked on until half 5 to get it ready. I woke up to the car sitting outside my house on the trailer ready to go. I went on to have a brilliant days racing. I had a fantastic race with @mutchy_146 which was topped off by shaking hands in the pits after. Ni sevens is exactly what I wanted to be, good fun with a great group of people. I couldn’t have done it without the people that are there for me through thick and thin. @jl_raceengines, Ricky McAlonan, @shortness149, @ianarcher84 And Davis Buick all deserve a special thanks for the help, time, sleep loss, engine and support they gave me over the weekend. Thank you #thisisracing #nisevens #locost #fireblade #kirkistown #vwcaddy

It started off repurposing my biscuit tin lid 🤦🏼‍♀️ but brilliant first day out at Kirkiston. So proud of @_scott_walker_ and can’t thank @jl_raceengines, Archer, Ricky and all at NI Sevens for their help #nisevens #kirkistown #foundered

What. A. Race!! 🤩
.
We're so gobsmacked, we don't even know where to start!
.
If you missed the live, we HIGHLY recommend you watch it back...unbelievable stuff 🙊
.
Anthony Cross and Jack Byrne diced for the full 15 minute race, and every half lap we had a new leader
.
In the meantime, Paul Heavey, Ken Browne, & Dan Polley were tight together the whole way around the track, battling for 3rd place - Heavey pulled a cracker of a move to overtake Browne & Polley at Debtors, to secure 3rd place for himself, which he held on to for the rest of the race ....
.
All the while, JB Farrell and David O Loughlin were fighting for 6th place....there was so much going on in the race between so many drivers, we didn't know where to look!
.
So, that's it - we're back with a bang 🤩

As expected, a cracker of an opening race for our B/C competitors!🤩
.
Jack Byrne, Paul Heavey, & Ken Browne were quick off the start line, until an off-track excursion on the first corner left Heavey battling from the back of the grid - in true Heavey form, he wasnt long pushing his way back up to 3rd place, which he maintained for the rest of the race!👊🏻
.
Jack Byrne & Ken Browne battled, with Browne closing in on Byrne's lead on every lap. A spin for Browne on the last lap, however, strengthened Byrne's lead, with him taking home the win.🏁
.
In the meantime, JB Farrell, Matt Bodden, & Philip Sheane had a tight race, dicing throughout, with Farrell & Sheane fighting for the 1st place finish in the C championship!
.
We have our race results!

A stressful evening.. came across a girl with a flat tyre at the end of my lane. Tried to change the wheel but the lock nut rung 🤬 tig welder to the rescue. Final few bits and pieces done to the locost and loaded up for practice tomorrow afternoon. Roll on Saturday for first days racing. Wouldn’t be at this stage without my friends. @jl_raceengines is one in particular who has supplied 2 tyres plus countless hours of help and crack. Can’t thank him enough. #nisevens #locost #toyor888r #jlrepower #kirkistown

Wouldn’t be at this stage without my friends. @jl_raceengines is one in particular who has supplied 2 tyres plus countless hours of help and crack. Can’t thank him enough. #nisevens #locost #toyor888r #jlrepower #kirkistown

Twas the week before Kirky 😉
.
‘Twas the week before race season starts
And all through the racer’s house
Not a creature was stirring
Not even a mouse 🙊
.
You’d be forgiven for thinking they were all in bed
Getting some rest for the big weekend ahead
But then you hear the noise of the engine’s roar
And the sound of cursing and tools being fu... thrown ....on the floor .
.
Out to the shed you go to see what’s being done
10 weeks of race car building suddenly rolled into one 
The car’s on blocks, the engine’s being pulled out
Whether they’ll be racing this weekend
Is suddenly in doubt .
Stressed-out men, nothing happening with ease,
Cracks in both heads, with the sinking realisation - they were the good chinese!
Well that’s it now we’re completely done for
Chinese heads are gold dust, no way will we get more 🤦🏻‍♂️
.
A few calls around to all the lads, 
New heads sourced - American, but not bad
Things are looking up, definitely aren’t as depressing
We’ll definitely make Kirky... at least for testing 🤷🏻‍♂️
.
With the car fixed up, attention turns to the truck
That needs to be loaded with tools, & spare parts if we’re stuck
That’s not to mention the house setup too
Pots, pans & food  to be packed, to name but a few
.
You’d think racing was glamorous, but not anymore
We’ve the air mattresses packed, to sleep on the floor
But we don’t care at all, winter is finally done
It’s time for us to hit the track, and have a bit of fun 🎉🎉
.
The months of waiting is finally complete,
Getting that car prepped, was no mean feat
The car’s loaded, truck is good to go,
Headed up the m1, we’re all gung ho 💪🏻
.
And finally we’d like to wish all our drivers good luck 
Although when we’re on the track, we don’t give a ....😉
Racing has started, nothing’ll bring us down,
See ye all at the weekend, when we’re back in Kirkistown! 💪🏻🏎💨 .

First day out in the locost didn’t start off as planned due to a layer of snow but ended up going to kirkistown anyway. A broken throttle cable and a limp back to the pits in a hail shower was the only main issues. So much fun to drive. Finding my feet with it with every lap. #nisevens #fireblade #kirkistown #locost

Monday's Moments!
.
That's the face of a Boss who's drivers are all racing well and cars are flying (although - not literally 👀)
.
Less than a month to go until we're all back to racing action in Kirkistown, and less than a week until our first test day @mondellopark, and we cant wait! 🤩

Many thanks to Cregor Elliott for the photo once again!🤗

The late Courtney Junk

Courtney was one of the sports top road racers in the Seventies and early Eighties, even giving his passion one last go during the 1998 season.

An Irish and Ulster road race champion Courtney will long be remembered for his performances in the 200cc class in 1974 and '75 when riding a 182cc Honda he was virtually unbeatable.
