D&G Buggies @ Croatia Trophy

leave a comment »

We are very happy to announce the good results from Nico Ladang and Peter Whitman and their co-drivers at the Croatia Trophy 2010.

They both finished this very tough edition of the trophy!

Peter Whitman was really pushing his D&G Spidertrax portal axled Humbug to the limit and was on his way to take the 2nd place overall! Unfortunately on the last day due to a roll the wheelstuds of the rear wheel broke off which which resulted in a DNF for the last day. This resulted in a 7th place which is still an amazing result!

Nico Ladang in his orange D&G buggy suffered with a three that damaged the cooling fan which meant that he couldn’t push the engine to the limit. Still he and his co-driver were able to get to the 11th place!

Congratulations to both teams with this great result!

The Baskerville Challenge 09: Humbug and Fire Ant

leave a comment »

Last weekend the Humbug had its first test at the Baskerville Challenge in North Wales.

Andy Chaplin, co-driver of Pete on the Humbug wrote a short report of the weekend:

After some very late nights and early starts at D&G Tuning we left with the humbug on friday evening for its first outing the baskerville challenge in north wales.

We arrive at the hotel at 1.30am and people come out to see the car at 7.30am we go outside to load our equipment for the day to find the car surrounded by people asking what things do how things work.

We start at stage 6 and it does take long for pete to get into the swing of 450 hp and he powers up though a boulder strewn gully we collect and power out of this section and into section 7 a steep hill climb we lost the front arb locker so we we just went for the power option and used the winch the winches are Gigglepin GP82 and now 24volt into 12 volt motors and pull like a ls2 at full chat. once we got to the top of the hill we fixed the arb hose which was a simple rerouting of the ARB air pipe to fix.

stage 8 was a very steep descent and gave us a test of the rear steer and the year winch both worked very well we collected the punches and got onto stage 9 a reverse winch down hill for 38mts pete just hit the winch button and descended using his rear steer all the way down collecting his punches on the way

stage 10/1112 went with out drama but for stage 13 it all ended up on the side then the roof and then the side pete was making lots of funny noises once he came to a rest we got him back on his wheels and on his way the only damage was a piece of lexon popped out the roof and peters ribs a little sore but he’s a big lad and he will get over it!

on to stage 14 last one of the day a rock crawl that was more like a few pebbles when you have 500mm of ground clearance then a 38mtr winch pulls followed by a long winch down and the a big rock crawl and then back to parc ferme

for a test weekend first time out the workmanship that D&G have produced id fantastic a brand new buggy completed 2 days in a very tough uk competition and is now back in belgium having a view tweaks

thank you to D&G and all help we have received in building this buggy!!

In the meanwhile the Humbug is back in our workshop for a last finishing touch, and we took the axles apart and are very happy with the result. After a whole weekend of tough testing, the new portal boxes didn’t had any problems!

Some pictures and a video from last weekend, thanks to “Alan” and “Kevin Thomas”.
