FLEET GOALS: "How about we swap our trusty Ford Ranger circuit pick-up for a race truck?" We got our first taste of the SsangYong Racing Challenge today, when our local Horncastle-based Chandlers (Farm Equipment) Ltd race team brought their Musso racing pick-up to show us. One of the MSVR race championships for 2017, this is one of the quirkiest single make series to hit UK motorsport, and the pick-ups will are headed our way this Saturday as part of a typically varied MSVR race day. This gave the Foreman of our Maintenance Team, Andy Willoughby a GREAT idea. Well, the rest of the team thought it was a great idea anyway. Gavin Pell, Chandlers' driver for this weekend's race didn't seem as enthusiastic. Though we're not entirely sure why. After all, the deal sees Gavin turn up to race with a truck which has been set-up perfectly for action here at Cadwell Park, and of course he gains the all-important Cadwell Park livery AND those flashing lights (you can race with flashing lights, right?). It turns out, a roll cage is the perfect place to mount a strimmer. Who knew...

CADWELL PARK - AKA THE ‘ MINI-NüRBURGING’ - IS NEXT UP FOR THE SSANGYONG MUSSO PICK-UP CHALLENGE

Fondly nicknamed the ‘mini-Nürburging’, it is the turn of Cadwell Park to host the Ssangyong Challenge, on 30th September 2017.

With its’ mix of challenging corners and pronounced undulations, Cadwell Park is marked out as one of the best circuits in the country and will be a fitting fifth and penultimate single header round for the UK’s first pickup race series.

Facing the twelve SsangYong drivers are eleven impressive turns, 3.477 kilometre and some of the most notorious gradient changes, including one section called The Mountain.

Already impressed by the series’ popularity with both spectators and drivers, the Musso Pick-up manufacturers SsangYong are looking forward to continuing to deliver on the ambition for the series, that is close-quarters, affordable and cost-effective racing.

“Car #40 – ‘the pink ute’ – has a busy social life when not racing in the Ssangyong Racing Series. It was at the Hampton Downs club track on Sunday 13 August, providing coaching and hot laps as part of an Introduction to Motorsport track day, in its role as ambassador for raising the profile of breast cancer awareness. The event - put on by HRC Events in association with Women in Motorsport New Zealand and the Race 4-D Cup Cup crew – was a great success, with new competitors signing up for licenses on the day, hot laps for volunteers and new drivers and fun had by all. Thanks to Chelsea, Wendy, Bronwynne and Sheridan for their coaching and induction work on the day and to Alexandra and Lance for organising to get the ute there. Eric (Clifford) and his mate Mark even turned up and undertook some emergency repairs to make sure the well travelled pink ute looked a touch more glamorous and able – a great SRS team spirit as ever!

Had an absolute blast racing in the SsangYong Racing Musso Pick Up Challenge at Oulton Park this weekend! Qualified 8th, finished in P8 after being in P6 and then got overtaken by 2 Pick Ups down the straight!! The superstar mechanics got all hands on deck to see what could be holding the Pick Up back and after some tweaks, race 2 saw a P7 finish! Overtaking is slow motion bravery but SO MUCH FUN!! Cannot wait for the next one! [INCAR footage from my Garmin Dashcam to follow. :-) ]

Oulton Park ‘tests the metal’ of drivers and machines racing in the SsangYong Musso Pick-up Racing Challenge

30th July 2017 – It was the first visit to Oulton Park for the UK’s newest racing event – the SsangYong Musso Pick-up Racing Challenge – and as one of the country’s toughest racing circuits, the competitors were looking forward to the challenges ahead.

Drivers were expecting the circuit ‘to test their metal’ and in doing so, appeal to the fans; but a crash in practice one put this theory to the test from the off.

It was the debut of Telegraph Cars journalist Ed Wiseman #94, who had a baptism of fire in testing, in very wet conditions, who hit the wall damaging the truck. However, with a great team effort by the Ssangyong race crew, Wiseman’s Musso Pick-up was quickly repaired, and he was ready for qualifying and racing, finishing both races in 11th and ninth position.

Lewis Grant, one of the series’ double race winners, faced similar early challenges when in qualifying he was unable to set a representative time after an issue with the front wheel bearing forced him to start from the back of the pack. A great recovery drive saw him move up five places to finish sixth in the first race.

The winner of Race 1, James Gornall #7 who had led from the off was joined by Dean Jones #2 and Luke Warr #11; all of whom secured their first podiums.

James Gornall went onto make it two out of two wins in Race 2, but not without a close fought battle with Lewis Grant #24, who kept him under pressure throughout the fifteen-minute final race. Grant secured the second position and Glenn Broster #15 secured third place at the flag.

James Gornall # 7 SsangYong Racing
“I am really pleased with that; it is nice to get on the top step of the podium at last. The first race was quite frantic going into the first corner, but I managed to pull away which gave me a comfortable gap. In the second race I had Lewis Grant right behind me, and he was pushing hard. I made a couple of small mistakes, and he managed to get even closer, but I held the lead, but it was close. It was a great race, and I really enjoyed the battle with Lewis.”
