The Real Steel Group would like to congratulate two of our customers, Daniel Burton and Malcolm Oastler for a very successful day at the latest round of the SDMA Hillclimb event held at the Fairburn track on the 19th of October 2014.

Daniel Burton debuted his freshened up Honda Civic EK sporting a very impressive front and rear large brake upgrade, consisting of AP Racing calipers and AP Racing discs supplied by Competition Friction coupled with some custom made Hats and Caliper brackets designed and built by Real Steel Group.  Daniel was confident and quick with his new setup straight off the trailer and just got quicker and quicker throughout the day and went on to deliver a blistering final run time of 44.98 seconds.  That was fast enough to not only smash the Type 3, 1601cc - 2000cc class record by 2.02 seconds, but also good enough to take 1st place in class and finished 2nd place in the outright category.  A big accomplishment for a little naturally aspirated, front wheel drive up against a field of big v8's , Turbo 4WD's and open wheel purpose built cars.

This was a great shakedown run for Daniel as the car has been primarily built to compete in the Improved Production category run by IPRA.  Real Steel Group wish Daniel the best at his next upcoming event which is the IPRA Nationals held at Wakefield Park in Goulburn NSW over the 7th,8th, and 9th of November 2014.

Additionally Malcolm Oastler also had a fantastic day debuting his new car known now as an OMS 28.  This is a revised version of his last hill climb car the Dallara F394, however Malcolm has put the car on a diet by redesigning a lot of the suspension, uprights and brakes and has also strapped a nice Turbo to the existing Hayabusa engine.  The entire car now only weights 305kg's and punches out 325hp.  Those impressive figures where backed up by Malcolm's equally impressive driving skill as he managed to wrestle that rocket ship to a new all time track record of 37.45 seconds.  That was 0.46 seconds faster than the previous record also held by Malcolm.  Needless to say, this time was fast enough for Malcolm to win the Type 5 over 2000cc class and win the outright category as well. 

Malcolm will be running next at the Australian Hillclimb Championship on 30th of October 2014 and again Real Steel Group wish him all the best.


 Congratulations to you both again for a fantastic effort.  Real Steel Group has enjoyed the challenge of making some pretty tricky parts for both of these cars and great to see it all come to fruition.
