Five things you didn’t know about the WD-40 Rally Team

With the 2018 BTRDA Rally Championship just around the corner, we thought we’d have a closer look at the team and find out who they are, where they’re from and what they do when they’re not skidding around the countryside in the WD-40 team car. The team are currently British Champions! Stephen Petch (Driver) and Michael Wilkinson (Co-driver) won the BTRDA Gold Star Championship in 2017, securing the title at their home venue, Trackrod. Winning runs in the family: Stephen’s dad (Steve Snr) won the championship 25 years previously in 1992 Practice makes perfect: Michael & Stephen have been driving together since they were 17! The car doesn’t come cheap! The car is a fully prepared, world championship specification M Sport Fiesta.  If you fancy buying one, you’ll need to have a spare £350K! They eat, sleep & breathe cars: When they’re not competing in the BTRDA Rally Championship, the family run a car dealership (SG Petch) selling slightly less expensive cars than the one they drive!   Who is Stephen Petch?   Check out the video below to learn more about Stephen Petch… The first round of this year’s BTRDA Championship is the Cambrian Rally, held in Llandudno on 17th February.Post your messages of support for the team on our Facebook page at @Original WD40 UK.    You can find out more about the WD-40 Athletes here!

weston beach race

HydroGarden Weston Beach Race 2017

The HydroGarden Weston Beach Race 2017, with over 70,000 people visiting the Weston-Super-Mare event over the course of the weekend. There was some outstanding racing amongst the 900 riders, who took to the beach to combat the gruelling course. It was a weekend that certainly sorted the men from the boys!   The race concluded with local resident Todd Kellett, earning a second consecutive win in the adult solo category. David Knight, who is a well-known enduro legend, took an impressive second place result with Martin Barr taking third. It was always going to be difficult to predict the outcome of the adrenaline fuelled adult solo race. Kellett, sped out of the gate to enjoy an incredible start aboard his St Blazey MX/SJ Hodder Husqvarna, which saw him earn the top podium finish in the RPG Racing 4×4 quad class. Close behind down the 1.5-mile straight, Red Bull KTM Factory Racing’s Jonny Walker was second with Ashley Greedy third.   By the halfway point, Kellett managed a smooth pit stop, while Barr took the opportunity to edge into second and Knight was then able to take up third. Greedy dropped back to sixth, while Irwin was forced to retire from the proceedings, due to suffering some technical issues. Kellett managed to maintain his consistency and speed throughout the enduring three-hour race, with the 20-year-old Somerset rider remaining untouchable approaching the final stages, allowing him to claim the well-earned victory. David Knight, who was the last rider to win Weston Beach Race back-to-back in 2010 and 2011. This year saw him take the runner-up spot and being the only rider to complete the race on the same number of laps as winning Kellet, after pushing his bike over the line. Buildbase Honda rider Martin Barr equalled his debut result from last year, finishing on the podium in third, after a spectacular battle between the amateurs and pros. Ross Parkinson was presented the HydroGarden Weston Beach Race Young Gun Award, as the highest placed 19-year-old with his 81st position. Of course, the weekend is full of the most exciting off-road riding you will see, but it doesn’t end there. It is an incredible event for all the family, which included the multiple Indoor and Outdoor World Trials Champion Dougie Lampkin taking to the WD-40 Trials Arena, to perform some death defying stunts.   Lampkin was joined by Toby Martin, who put on an awesome display of their trials riding abilities, working with some seriously large WD-40 cans to showcase their skills to the crowd.   It certainly was not an event to be missed!   Find Out More here: https://rhlactivities.com/events/rhl-beach-race-2017 Find Out More about our Specialist Motorbike range here: https://wd40.co.uk/wd-40-specialist-motorbike/
