Kumho Lap Battle Championship Prizes


Recommended Posts


As many of you are aware Kumho through their NSW distributor Fsport have generously provided sponsorship for this years lap battle championship. They are offering 3 forms of support:

1. A $1000 voucher towards the purchase of 4 motorsport tyres for the eventual winner of each class of the championship (3 vouchers total).

2. Three $500 vouchers - 1 per class - towards the purchase of 4 motorsport tyres awarded per event, drawn at random from the financial members of RENEW and SAU NSW. You don't need to have the fastest car to win this prize, you just need to support your club through membership and attending events. If you intend on entering multiple events it's cheaper in the long run to become a member too (9 vouchers total).

3. A discount to any competitor purchasing new motorsport tyres through Fsport. Simply mention that you are a competitor in the Kumho lap battle championship when you speak to John.

The winners for the $500 vouchers for rounds 1 and 2 are

Round 1:

Eric Yamashita – Street

Ben Martin – Open

Trent Kennedy – Club

Round 2:

Mike Bennett – Street

Dale Green – Open

Mark Robinson – Club

Congratulations to the winners, your contact details have been passed on to Fsport. To be in the running make sure you enter for the third event in December. If you're looking for new motorsport tyres or just some advice on moving onto R compound rubber check out www.fsport.com.au or give John a call on 1300 4 KUMHO. Fsport also stocks the range of velo seats and a variety of track related accessories.

Vouchers are valid for 12 months and are for a discount on the purchase of 4 Kumho motorsport tyres from Fsport. Vouchers may be non transferrable and subject to other terms and conditions at the provider's discretion, please contact john @ fsport.com.au (remove the spaces) for further details. The per event prize can't be won more than once by the same person regardless of class entered.

The prize for the championship class winners has been revised but the sponsors overall commitment has increased. Anyone with issues surrounding this matter should PM me to discuss it.

Fsport are currently having a mid year sale with significant discounts on a range of tyres, just in time for entrants thinking about making the step up to semis or replacing the ones they already have!

    • VP race fuel like VP 109 ron unleaded is a waste of money compared to E85. Just go flex fuel setup so you can run on pump unleaded or E85 all without draining tanks or switching tunes. You go VP race fuel you will have to change tune when using it, then change back to a pump unleaded tune. VP109 for example will support about the same boost and timing increaes as E85, but it requires the afr's to be a lot leaner than E85 but richer than pump unleaded.
    • Whats your budget? Maybe call Nispro in QLD for quote - they build a lot of VQ and have a turbo kit in development - but id say at least 20k to do it right - oh actually maybe do LS swap will be cheaper but....hmm  im a purist - so id rather stick to VQ35DE or whats the point lol.... just my opinion - do what u want. its your car  
    • Ok sorry I should rephase my question. But good answer haha.  How can I make 400whp that isn't using nitrous. 
    • dyno run would be on VP race fuel or e85 / e98, E85 is not easily accessible by me. Closest pump is 30 min in a direction I do not travel. So while I will go out to get it. It will also get pump gas 93 octane is highest avilable in US so overall power will be down if mix fuels  e50, e30, e10 ect 
    • Cheapest way? Spray. A wet kit with 200hp jets could be up and running for less then $2000. Then its about $16 per pound when its time to refill your bottle.
