Chris Mullen

           

Queenswood Service Centre is a proud sponsor of National Autograss Champion Chris Mullen who is now competing in the Suzuki Swift Sport Rallycross Championship.
Chris has been working at Queeswood formerly (Stonegate Test Center) since he left school 7 years ago (2004) and was racing in National Autograss for just over 7 years using cars that were built and prepared by us at Stonegate Test Centre!
He started his racing career in 2003 in the junior class which is for 12-16 year olds racing 1000cc minis and although he had only one year in the class due to his age, he managed to reach the final in the national championship where he finished 18th overall out of 128 competitors. He then moved on into the men's classes in 2004 where after competing in the lower class 1 for a couple of years where he had good results he then decided that it was time to progress into a more competitive and faster class!
The class that he progressed into in 2006 was class 6 which is the fastest front wheel drive class, where we used a fully space framed Mk1 Peugeot 106 with a vauxhall 2litre 16valve engine that we had built, which had many race wins including:

Sportway Challenge Champion 2006
Cumbrian Open Champion 2006
Club Championship 2007+2008+2010
Yorkshire Open Champion 2009
National Champion 2009

           
           
For the 2011 season Chris is competing in the Suzuki Swift Rallycross Championship where all the cars in the class are based on the three-door Suzuki Swift Sport, cars in this series use a 140bhp, 1600cc/16v engine that has tightly controlled regulations so that the cars are equal and it is driver ability that shows through. The cars are monitored closely with the ECU's being changed throughout the season. There is also a car & driver minimum weight as well as all fuel being provided by the organisers to ensure all cars are running to the same level.
           
The Swift Sport we are using started its life in 2007 where it was driven daily by one lady owner until we got our hands on it in september 2010. The first thing we did was to prepare the car with all the safety items and modifications needed to compete in the championship consisting of the roll cage, Polycarbonate Windows, and lots of other safety items! Once the car was looking something like a rally car it was time to get some colour on the shell, black and RS green was the colour choice which turned out very nice indeed. Only thing left was to get the transfers put on and it was fit and ready for the first test event in 2011.
           
Our first run out with the car was a demo at the NEC in Birmingham doing a live show which was a great experience and a good way to show the car to potential sponsors etc also a good advert for us at Stonegate Test Centre. After that we did few adjustments to get ready for the test day we had booked at Lydden Hill race circuit in Kent, where we went on a cold wet february day. Despite the weather we had a good day and put in some good times and got the car set up to how Chris liked it. We was now ready for the first full race meeting which is to be held at Lydden Hill.
