As the title says, after a lot of blood,sweat and tears the car and truck made it to Bahrain to race in the last 3 rounds of the BDRC championship. We are there running exhibition passes only, to first try and run a 5 second 1/4 mile, and then to try and wrestle back the world quickest and fastest street legal car in the 1/4 mile title. Our first round is in the books. And after overcoming a lot of problems we managed to come away with a 6.31 @ 236mph PB. Round 4 and 5 of the BDRC championship will be starting on the 21st Feb 2017. Massive thanks to the staff at Bahrain International Circuit, the entire E Kanoo racing team, Shane Tecklenburg, Jamie Miller, Josh Ledford, the Red Victor team, our great sponsors and supporters, and of course the Red Victor 5 second club members. Watch out for the live feed You Tube link from the BDRC of all the action from qualifying and race day. And of course you can always ask to join our RV 5 second club page which will have live updates at the track from ourselves. https://www.facebook.com/groups/redvictor5secondclub/
Red Victor 1 Racing to partner with R-Tech Welding Equipment.
The Red Victor racing team are proud to announce a partnership with R-Tech Welding Equipment for the trip to Bahrain for the world record attempt, to be the worlds quickest and fastest street legal car over a 1/4 mile, and beyond.
Andy Frost, team principal of RV1 racing says "We are proud to have the chance to promote R-Tech's products on RV3. They have a great line up of welders and welding equipment that we are happy to showcase, and are looking forward to working with them now, and in the future"
R-Tech Welding Equipment is a family run UK based supplier of welding equipment. They supply their own range of TIG, MIG and Arc welders and Plasma Cutters all with their two year collect and return warranty. Customer satisfaction is paramount to R-Tech Welding Equipment and their pre-sale advice and post-sale care is what sets them apart.
Jeanette Carr, marketing executive at R-Tech Welding Equipment says "We are proud and excited to be working with Red Victor 1 Racing. Andy and his team approached us for support in getting the car to Bahrain for the world record attempt and regaining the title. The level of dedication that they have is nothing less than inspirational. We look forward to working with them."
Robert White, managing director says “This is a very exciting partnership for us all, we supply many motorsport companies and enthusiasts and at R-Tech we all have a very keen interest in motorsport ourselves, I look forward to Red Victor Racing breaking the record again and wish them great success in Bahrain”
We thank R-Tech for having faith in our team, and wanting to be part of our record breaking attempts. And we look forward to them being on the car when we attempt the record! http://www.r-techwelding.co.uk/
After 21 months of hard work by the team, and of course the Red Victor 5 second club members https://www.facebook.com/groups/redvictor5secondclub/ we had a successful test at the Main Event in May. As always testing reveals little things that need tweaking, but our data (and performance) bode well for the next step in the development of the car. Our plans are to test again at the Euro finals at Santa Pod, then funds permitting ship the car to Bahrain in October for the whole of the BDRC drag race season (subject to BDRC confirmation). Of course to do this properly comes at a big cost for a privateer team, but our supporters have already raised a 25% towards the total! Included in this total is our newest sponsor Airservices Hellas, who have agreed a 2 year deal to support Red Victor 3 in it's efforts to regain the worlds fastest street legal car in the 1/4 mile title. A big thank you to David Greenhalgh for brokering this deal for the team! And as usual a big thank you to all our Red Victor team of Deb, Gary, Jan, Badger, Shane T and Nik Wadsworth, all the Red Victor 5 second club members, the teams supporters and great sponsors, and our loyal fans for their support so far. As the above statement says, to get the car to Bahrain to claw back the record is a costly business for a small team. We are looking for support from individuals or companies to take us that final step. You can either join the Red Victor 5 second club (link above) and become a full or associate member.
