News Article – YEAR OF DOMINANCE: Bundy’s Paul Kellaway takes out state titles

FROM https://m.news-mail.com.au/news/year-of-dominance-bundys-paul-kellaway-takes-out-s/3167633/

YEAR OF DOMINANCE: Bundy’s Paul Kellaway

takes out state titles

18th April 2017 8:36 AM
NUMBER ONE: Paul Kellaway Starts the season with his new number after a successful finish to 2016.CHAMP: Paul Kellaway starts the season with his new number after a successful finish to 2016 where he won three state titles. Paul Donaldson BUN130417VEE1

MOTORSPORT: “It was the best year of motorsport I have ever had.”

When Bundaberg’s Paul Kellaway describes his season of racing in the Queensland Formula Vee racing series it is easy to see why he says that.

The racer, who now dons number one on his car this year, won three state titles in an almost flawless year of racing.

Competing in open wheelers using Volkswagen engines he won 21 races out of 22 in six rounds.

His only blemish was a race at the Queensland Raceway which was stopped four laps before the finish because of a red flag.

In the end he won the Confederation of Australia Motorsport state championship, the Queensland Racing Drivers Association Formula Vee title with the Formula Vee championship.

“We won every race in the CAMS and QRDA championship and 21 overall,” he explained.

“I was really pleased with the way I drove though and the car had pace.

“Despite the success it was a hard battle and I like to think I got lucky at times that season.”

He also credits a break in 2015 for motivating him to come back to his best.

“We had to rebuild the car after an accident bent all four corners of the car,” he said.

“It allowed us to make sure everything was right in the car.”

And it was during his season of dominance.

“It just did what we wanted it to do,” he said.

“It was a tough decision to take six months off in 2015 but it was the right choice.”

Now Kellaway is focused on going back-to-back this year and continuing his run.

But in the first round of the championship that didn’t go to plan.

Engine problems at Lakeside earlier this month saw the racer struggle and finish third for the round.

He is now 40 points behind the leader.

“We’ll get those engine problems sorted out,” he said.

“There’s still significant time in the series and we will be fine.”

Kellaway said he wouldn’t be where he was without sponsors Mick’s Motors, Egan Tyre and Mechanical and Active Security Group.

The next round of the series will be held in Morgan Park next month.

Lakeside Race report 1st and 2nd April 2017

Race report by Bruce Acheson

After some of the heaviest rain in Queensland for several years, the weekend of racing at Lakeside Park was certainly at risk, despite the forecast for fine weather on Saturday and Sunday.
On Thursday, photos of the track under water were being distributed, further adding to the gloom. http://www.speedcafe.com/2017/03/30/lakeside-closed-due-cyclone-debbie-flooding/

Surprisingly, the sun appeared on Friday and practice went ahead, almost as normal.

http://www.speedcafe.com/2017/03/31/lakeside-reopens-following-cyclone-debbie-floods/

Saturday was fine as predicted and racing got under way with a few less competitors than we had hoped for. Several interstate drivers decided not to risk the weather forecast and went to Wakefield Park instead. With most drivers around two seconds slower than last year in qualifying, Curtis Porter surprised everyone with a 62.5 to take pole with Paul Kellaway half a second behind and Greg Wood another half second slower.

Race one was the subject of a re-start after an accident on the first lap ended Brendan Gorman’s weekend. He was unhurt but the car was badly damaged. The second attempt saw the ten lap race end without further incident and an exciting finish, with the first two cars across the line separated by one tenth of a second. First place Curtis Porter. Second, Greg Wood. Third, Paul Kellaway.

Race two was incident free with most competitors getting their lap times within a second of their previous best. Paul Kellaway was back at his usual spot at the front, however he was being closely followed by Curtis, who finished one hundredth of a second behind. Greg Wood was third.
Unfortunately there were DNFs for Gary Hook and Ted Sibley.

Sunday was fine and cloudy with no sign of the recent rain. After a couple of compliance checks, racing was under way, with another ten-lapper. In race three there way two DNFs, this time it was Ken Filbey and Paul Kellaway. The finishing order saw Eddie McFaul move up to third and Alex Hedemann to fourth. As in all previous races, there was some close racing in the mid-field between Scott Andrew, Adam White, David Hedemann and Wayne Hamilton. The first three across the line were Curtis Porter, Greg Wood and Eddie Mc Faul.

The twelve lap final saw Ted Sibley still struggling with a misfire, the mid-field swapping positions regularly and a great drive from Paul Kellaway, starting last and finishing third. There was an incident on lap six, in which the cars of Eddie McFaul and Ken Filbey collided at ‘Hungry Corner’, tangling wheels and heading into the shrubbery, resulting in two more DNFs.
Curtis Porter won race four as well as top points (116) for the weekend. Greg Wood was second, likewise in Club Points (99) while Paul Kellaway was third on both counts. Alex Hedemann had a good weekend with fourth overall.

Many thanks to Ken Taylor for volunteering to do the DSO’s job on both days and a big thank you to our interstate visitors for making the trip north.

YOKOHAMA TYRES – Queensland report

YOKOHAMA TYRES – Queensland report

Results after a morning of practice with the long awaited Yokohama tyres at QR on Saturday morning.

The following is a brief summary of what was found on Eddie McFaul’s car

Ride Height

Front under tray                                                          +11mm

Lowest point at the rear(under sump)                         -7mm

Car setup

I went to the track prepared to make major setup changes based on what has been widely circulated. The setup from last year worked with no major change required. We made minor changes that you’d make at any practice day prior to a race meeting.

Tyre Pressure

Pressure around the pressure used with the Hoosier will get the tyre up to the operating temperature range specified by Yokohama.

Steering

While I didn’t do a run on the Hoosier prior to going out on the Yokohama the steering didn’t feel any heavier. If it was heavier it was not excessive so no problem will be experienced over race distance.

Speed/RPM

Based on logged data from my dash, top speed down the back straight was down about 5KPH.

The engine RPM increased from 5360 to 5440RPM. Less than 100RPM.

Lap times

I didn’t do back to back testing but my lap times were about 1 second slower than a typical lap time on the Hoosier.

In general the tyres were consistent and predictable allowing for consistent lap times with minimal setup change. I was intending to do further testing at Lakeside next weekend but due to the performance of the new spec tyre I feel this is unnecessary.

So in summary the testing and car setup was a non event. Get the Yokohama tyre on and get racing.

With thanks to Eddie McFaul
