EMRA – Rnd 3 – Mallory Park

Time for Rnd 3 with EMRA and we travelled 150 miles to the iconic motor sport venue, Mallory Park. Nestled in the heart of the Leicestershire countryside, with tranquil lakes,and rolling hills.

Deciding to stay at the Kirkby House Hotel on the Saturday Night, we woke to a chilly, overcast morning. The day slowly got better with the sun breaking through before it was time to qualify.

Qualifying – EMRA

Qualifying was at 1100 hrs in the 125 and Lightweight Class (Formula 125, GP125 up to 450cc and Lightweight’s). The session went well and Fred McMullan qualified 11th overall and fifth in class; setting a time of 1:03.61. Looking back to last month for Rnds 1 and 2, this was 2 seconds faster.

No changes were undertaken to the set up of the bike.

Fred McMullan said “The bike was good and I wasn’t fighting with it”. This is the same set up that we ran at Donington Park with BMCRC.

Race 1 – Mallory Park

Race 1 was a Split Grid with Fred starting in the second group, 10 seconds behind the first group. After qualifying Fred, was 6th on the Grid in his group. After a fairly good start Fred McMullan set a new personal best that Mallory Park with a 1:01.5; finishing 8th overall and 4th in Class.

Race 2 – Mallory Park

Race 2 and due to Fred McMullan’s great lap time started 4th on the grid in his group. Once again Fred McMullan had a good start overtaking riders on the first bend on the outside.

Fred McMullan finished the race with a new personal best of 1:00.7. Finishing in 7th place overall and 3rd in class. The winner, #66 – Annabel Thomas was riding an NSF 250 British Talent Cup Bike. Fred McMullan was racing against other British Superbike Junior SuperSport spec bikes. Fred McMullan currently races a 400 (restricted to 37 BHP) and did very well.

It was a fantastic weekend for Fred McMullan with EMRA and felt relaxed and happy. Now looking forward to a great Weekend at Brands Hatch GP, with BMCRC (Bemsee) in 2 weeks.
