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!

Mark, you forgot to mention....kumho tyres are awesome too ;) I have been running V70A from John at F-sport for a while, and they are a good tyre with consistent performance all the way down in wear.

    • So….. I’ve replaced all the coils and made sure I have a spark by fitting a spark plug to one of the new coils and cranking the engine. I’ve ensured I have fuel by removing what I assume is the ‘return to tank’ fuel line and cranking the engine. So I have a spark and fuel and the car still won’t run. Any ideas? may be time to get an auto electrician out! 
    • EFI Solutions aka Taarks have a great kit just for that. Better to have facts/data before making a decision. https://www.efisolutions.com.au/exhaust-pressure-sensor-pulse-damper-emap
    • I'm not sure why you removed the sound deadener???  Don't bother with DIY remedies... this is how you can do it properly. For the lightly stained areas, just stick to a fine grade wet sand paper....and then paint over once the stain is gone. For the worst areas...especially the pitted ones...you just need to sand the rust in the localised spot working down from a heavier grit to medium grit wet sandpaper, which will get most of the rust off. It's just localised rust from the spare wheel touching the boot. Don't go to town on sanding the whole boot...not needed! Try to avoid sanding the seam sealer etc (obviously) After the rust spots are down to bare metal - use a fine brush dipped in "RUST DEOXIDISER"...and carefully apply this to the little rust areas. It's important the chemical you use is DEOXIDISER. After applying that, let it sit for a while and obviously wipe off with prepsol before it dries, and repeat 3-4 times. If you go to a panel shop they will probably be able to sell you some - as the trade products are a shitload stronger than retail products. After deoxidising the rust, scuff the surrounding paint with red scotch brite....& then you are ready to apply etch primer and then paint the matte gray colour on. Mask up the surrounding area using tape & paper..... as you don't need to paint the whole boot, just blend it in and keep the repair as small as possible. Spray can paint or spray gun depending on your level of expertise will be fine. Probably will cost you about $100-$150 in materials.  
    • Interesting. The 30/900 looks right on paper but weather it gives me enough headroom is the question. I dont have a pressure sensor in the exhaust manifold so I won't know if I have a restriction unfortunately.
    • It depends if your current turbine is a restriction or not, if it is go up to the 35, it’s it’s not then stick the 30. Also the g30 turbine wheel will flow more then your gt30 one either way you go the compressor wheel is going walk away from your current turbo
