Hi all,

Ok so no for something a little different :) We are giving one lucky person the opportunity to win 5 passenger laps around Donington Park on September 7th being driven around by my coach, Tom Gladdis, who is a professional racing driver and is seriously quick so this really isn’t for the faint hearted but will certainly be a day to remember if you are a petrolhead or thrill seeker.

All you need to do to enter is e-mail the answer to the below question to my e-mail address and we will hold the draw on August 24th and will announce the lucky winner on our website and social media channels.

Also keep an eye out as Chord Electronics, PMC Speakers and our new sponsor HiFi Pig will also also be holding competitions so that they can bring along a lucky winner each also.

Obviously you will need to be in good health and as we all know Motorsport can be dangerous so there will be a form to sign to say that you understand the risks, other than that it will be a fun day at the track.

Question - Nice and Easy :)

What year was HiFi Lounge Formed?

This Could Be You!

Please find a video below of Wendy going out for her first experience in the Radical at Cadwell Park a few weeks ago with Tom driving, she loved it but after a few laps she was quite keen to come back to the pits as she was feeling a bit queasy, she can’t wait to go out again though.


More information about the day!

I am racing at Donnington on the Saturday, we are testing on the Thursday and the Friday is a general track day so there will be all sorts of cars out but generally the Radical will be the quickest car out there, when you are passing other sports cars it really does help you realise just how quick the Radical SR1 is.

If you are the lucky winner please feel free to bring a guest for a bit of moral support, you will need to be at the track from around 9am where we will supply breakfast + a lunchtime meal.

Also as a memento of the day Oliver Read, the Radical official photographer, will be on hand to take pictures of the day which you can have copies and also as all track action is filmed on our onboard camera we can give you the video footage of your laps.

Life Begin’s at 50, Hopefully!

The day we are holding this is actually my 50th birthday so it will be great if you’d like to help me celebrate my mid life crisis, as that is what I am putting this years Radical adventure down to, but I have to say it is an amazing car to drive and also to be a passenger in as it is a real thoroughbred race car so if you love your motorsport as I do then please feel free to enter as this really is a great opportunity to experience motorsport first hand.

Please find a quick summary below.

Event — Donington Park September 7th.

Time - 9am at the track, passenger rides start at 10am

Age - Over 16’s.

Health - Must be in tip top health.

Food - Breakfast and Lunch supplied

Memento’s - Photo’s and Video of your laps.

Hope that is all clear and look forward to hearing from anyone who may be interested.


Update -

Further to the above, I was testing at Donington yesterday in preparation for the forthcoming race weekend so thought I would upload my best lap of the day, really pleased with this one, probably the best lap I have done this year, would have been good enough for 4th on last years Radical SR1 grid so it really feels like I made some good progress as I have been struggling a bit just lately but Donington really seemed to suit my driving style for whatever reason, roll on the race weekend :)

This will give an idea to those who don't know the Doningotn layout a good idea what to expect if you win the competition, it really is a great track that is fast and flowing and with the Craner Curves you have one of the best parts of any track in the world :)

A quick clue to the answer to our competition to win some passenger laps in our Radical SR1 -

Question - What year was HiFi Lounge Formed?

Clue - It is the same year the classic 'Gangnam Style' was released :-)

Hi Everyone,

Just wanted to say a big thanks to everyone who has entered our competition so far, it really has been a great response, shame everyone can’t come.

The original plan was to hold the draw today but as entries are still coming in I have decided to let it run for another week so the draw will now be held next Friday 31st, 1 week before the big day so please feel free to check back here then and it goes without saying that we will notify the lucky winner personally.

If you’d like to better your chances of wining please check out Chord Electronics and PMC Speakers social media channels for 2 more opportunities.

Thanks again,

Hi All,

So we finally just got round to making the draw for one lucky person to win 5 laps around Donington Park in our Radical SR1 on my 50th Birthday, September 7th, firstly I’d like to thank everyone who entered, shame everyone couldn’t come along really.

We recruited Wendy’s Mum to make the draw, and the lucky winner is, cue drum roll - Mark Roughley

Well done Mark, look forward to seeing you at Donington on Friday, the weather is looking good so there will be plenty of grip for some nice fast laps :)

A Radical Day Out At Donington For Our Competition Winners :)

Hi Everyone,

A bit late with this one as it was a couple of weeks ago but just back from our hols so just got round to posting, just wanted to say thanks to our competition winners for coming along to Donington Park for 5 laps each round the full GP track, there were a lot of smiles once everyone got out the car, I think everyone was blown away by the braking power and cornering speed.

Thanks also to Tom for taking everyone round and for Darren at UPE Motorsport for helping run the day that went off without a hitch, well till the end of the day when the diff failed but at least everyone’s passenger laps were completed by then so it was good timing to be honest, also thanks to Ollie Read for taking the excellent photo’s of the day.

Finally thanks to Chord Electronics and PMC Speakers for helping support the day and great to meet the guys and girls from our new sponsors Hifi Pig, hopefully we can do it again next year :)

Please find a few pictures below from the day -
