Following recent successful tests we've decided to continue using Ravenol Oil for all of our
dynotesting, not just for 'back to back' performance testing comparing against other oils but for all of our engine testing and devolopment.
We are also currently performing consecutive tests using Fully Synthetic Ravenol 10W-60 RSS (Racing Sport Synto) against Ravenol 10W-50 RSE (Racing Sport Ester) as a straight performance comparison.
For all of our dyno testing as of now we are using a semi-synthetic 15W-50 RFS (Racing Formel Sport) oil until futher tests with other oil consistencys from Ravenol oil are complete.
This week we have been testing a batch of Ravenol RFS Racing Formel Sport oil, against our standard conventional testing oil. So far we have been quite satisfied with the performance.
We are now taking part in a long term friction test program over the next 12 monthes with some Ravenol 15W-50 Semi Synthetic in a Diamond Series 2.
When the engine is due for its rebuild, we will perform a full analysis of the wearing componants in the engine and compare to simular spec Diamond Series II's using a our typical recomended oil.
The 2013 Autosport Show went very well with an estimated 82,000 visitors from over 50 countrys.
Special thanks to John Indri Rally Team, Major Motorsport, Phil Collins Rallying, and Andrew Hornshaw and the team. Millington Racing Engines claimed the award for the best stand in the Hisoric hall.
During the year Dennis Marshall (Marshall Cooke, American Le-man series competitor in 2002/3) has successfully created a Metro 6R4 conversion for the Millington Diamond engine (now badged as a Metro 4M4) and is currently manufacturing cars that will be available for hire in 2013. With a successful shake down rally in November under it's belt, an entry has been secured for John Indri to drive the same car at Brands on 12th January. The project is gaining momentum all the time with a third Millington engine being dispatched very shortly which will be coupled to a third generation sequential gearbox. The conversion involves a complex steel bracket which retains the 6R4 rear diff in it's original position. To complete the conversion a host of unique design features enhance the complete car whilst keeping it's iconic looks and original chassis...
2012 Banna Stages Overall win for James Stafford in his Darrian T90 GTR with co-driver Amy Ryan.
Congratulations to Kevin and Charles Tappin for winning the 2012 Millington Escort Challenge Championship

Next seasons REIS Get Connected MSA Asphalt Championship, which includes the Millington Challenge,
will be ever more exciting as 2010,2011 and 2012 champion Damian Cole will be using a MK2 Escort instead of his four wheel drive WRC Ford Focus, mixing it up with the 2WD competitors. The state of the art Escort is being prepared at Phil Mill's Viking Motorsport and will be running the lastest spec 2.5 Litre Diamond Series II.
Congratulations to Ian Rochelle and Co-driver Chris Hammond in winning the 2012 Britpart MSA British Cross Country Championship title at the final round this weekend(14/10/2012) at Walters Arena.
