Motorcycle News Review

Dan Sutherland from Motorcycle News has given the Diamondbrite Motorcycle Degreaser a 5 star review!

He said: “Ten washes degreasing bike parts is one of my least favourite jobs, but this makes it a doddle. Simply spray on, mildly agitate unwanted muck and watch as the formula removes the stain before your eyes. Simply spray off any residue with a hose and it’s job done. The only downside is the pungent smell it gives off.”

Honda duo battle hard on tough Rockingham weekend

  • Dan Cammish secures double top ten on Rockingham swansong

  • Matt Neal fights back from qualifying troubles to aid points challenge

  • Halfords Yuasa Racing secure manufacturer victory in final race of the weekend

  • Halfords Yuasa Racing pair Matt Neal and Dan Cammish battled hard on track to secure vital championship points on a challenging weekend of racing in the Dunlop MSA British Touring Car Championship at Rockingham.

Both drivers showed strong pace on track at the wheel of their Honda Civic Type Rs, but found themselves unable to push for a place on the podium due to the forceful nature of racing in the midfield.

Bouyed by his victory in the special ‘Diamond Double’ race last time out at Snetterton, Neal found himself on the back foot going into race day after a difficult Saturday that saw the team forced to change the engine on his car ahead of qualifying.

Having got the triple champion out on track, Neal qualified just a second away from pole position, although the close nature of the grid meant he found himself 29th on the grid for race one.

Delayed by an incident at the start, Neal fought hard in race one to finish in 18th spot, and showed top six pace in both races two and three, although plenty of contact in the midfield meant he had to settle for 14th and 15th place finishes.

Matt Neal said: “You can’t hide from the fact that it’s been a tough weekend for us and luck hasn’t been on our side. We were really on the back foot after qualifying because the margins have been so close that we found ourselves towards the rear of the field and it was always going to be tough from there. Some of the racing in the mid-pack is brutal and I found myself trying to look after the car as best I could but have still come away with quite a bit of damage. The lap times showed that the Civic Type R was a quick car this weekend and to end it with a Manufacturers win in race three is a positive. However, it’s onwards and upwards from here and we have to focus on the next round at Knockhill.”

Series rookie Cammish came close to securing a maiden pole position in qualifying for race one, where he picked up a fifth place finish despite carrying damage as a legacy of contact on the opening lap.

Rain ahead of the second race created challenging conditions on track, with Cammish one of those drivers caught out by a damp patch on the circuit as he ran wide at Deene whilst fighting for tenth place; an incident that left him instead outside the points in 21st spot.

However, the Yorkshireman fought back well in race three despite being on the less favourable hard tyre to end his weekend with a second top ten finish.

Dan Cammish said: “I think character building is a good way to sum the weekend up for me. It’s clear to see that we had good pace in the car on Saturday and on another day we could have had pole and then would have avoided the incident at the start of race one, which just unfortunate. The field bunched up and I made contact with Sam [Tordoff], which was completely unintentional and the last thing I wanted to do. We carried some damage after that but managed to bring home some points in fifth place but the mixed conditions in race two didn’t favour us and I found myself on a damp part of the circuit fighting for position and it cost me. I feel I got the best I could from the car in race three and P21 to P10 was a good way to end what has been a tough meeting where we haven’t been able to pick up the results that our pace deserved.”

The points scored in the final race allowed the Honda teams’ to top score amongst the manufacturer entries to maintain second in the Manufacturers’ Championship whilst Halfords Yuasa Racing ends the weekend just two points away from the lead of the Teams Championship.

Neal sits in fifth place in the Drivers’ Championship, just twelve points off the top three, with Cammish just a point away from the top ten.

Cammish also retains the lead of the Jack Sears Trophy standings.

Six crucial tips for effective summer car care

Britain might not have the most reliable summer weather but that won’t stop millions of motorists giving their cars some much-needed TLC over the coming months. The experts here at Diamondbrite are offering tips on how to make the job easier, get the best results, and avoid common pitfalls.

John Boseley, Managing Director of Diamondbrite, says: “Washing the car seems straightforward enough, but we repeatedly see people making harder work of it than they need to, and it can be disheartening if the result doesn’t seem worth the effort. Our simple tips will help motorists spend less time and effort and achieve a super summer shine.”

Tips for a super summer shine

  • Cool shade and cold water 

 

    1. Wash the car in the shade to avoid the suds drying out and leaving stubborn and unsightly residues on hot paintwork. A quality car shampoo will work just as well in cold water as in hot water, but won’t dry as quickly. Rinse the suds and dry with a fine microfibre cloth for a brilliant shine. And remember that washing-up liquid will strip away protective layers of wax or polish, so is best avoided.
  • Wax for a lasting shine

 

    1. Waxing the car after washing enhances and prolongs the shine. It protects the bodywork against strong sunlight that can cause paint to fade, and it will make the car easier to clean for months afterwards. A spray-on wax is much easier and quicker to use than a hard wax, and should keep the car protected until the autumn.
  • Banish bird lime and bugs 

 

    1. In the summer months, cars can get peppered with bird lime and bug splats. Bird lime in particular can cause damage to paintwork if not quickly removed, and like splattered bugs it can be harder to remove as the sun bakes the deposits onto the paint. Removing these contaminants regularly will help prevent damage and save on elbow-grease later.
  • Love leather and keep fabrics free of grit 

 

    1. Leather upholstery can dry out in prolonged hot temperatures, leading to discoloration and cracking. Keep it supple with a nourishing leather feeder. Also, be sure to mop up spills to avoid stains and stop odours baking into fabric seat fibres. Vacuum dirt and beach sand from seats and carpets to prevent scuffs and accelerated wear.
  • Freshen the interior in a flash 

 

    1. A weekly squirt and wipe with a plastic replenisher will keep the dash and door-cards clean. It will also give your car a lasting subtle fresh scent in place of the musty, dusty smell that can blight interiors during the hot summer months.
  • Sun cream is for skin, not car surfaces

 

  1. Essential for our skin’s summertime wellbeing, sun cream is a nightmare for car surfaces inside and out. From SPF 4 to 50, the chemical formulation in sun cream can leave stubborn white stains on paintwork and dash plastics that can seem impossible to shift. So, take extra care to avoid leaving behind long-lasting white splashes and fingerprints. Should the worst happen, paintwork that has been protected by a quality wax will be much easier to clean.
