A nice feature from Stance USA back in 2012, showing our old car. 2015, we continue to use the Stance ProComp3s on our latest RX7


Today, Michael Hesselholt brought his smoke machine and we found some leaks. Definitely have a cracked exhaust manifold or a damaged lower intake manifold gasket. Pretty confident this was my problem on the dyno back in December, time will tell. Car status: almost stripped down to the chassis, all suspension removed for new bushings with Peterspeed and now the motor comes out to fix the leak. Will try to get some more photos up next time

December 2014 -

Day started out pretty cold and icey. Johannas and I headed down to JH rullefelt in Vejle. Jacob hooked her up for a first pull. Goal of the day was to be around our previous dyno test with Jocab back in Sept, which was 294 Hp. Only change to the car was a lightened flywheel, disc puck, and rear exhaust that has been silenced. Result…. ignition/boost cut??? So I checked the ignition (every looks ok) and made many boost & duty changes…up sized the pill in the wastegate…same result.. again and again…boost cut! Jocab had to leave for a while and we continued to make changes. This time, out of frustration I upped the boost to .80 pri and .70 secondary (which are the lower settings that come with my apexi PFC). Result..full boost again and no cutting out. Jacob returned and the first run we got 351 Hp. So there’s definitely not a ignition or boost problem with those setting, but once I lower boost setting again, the boost cut returns. So I called it quits for the day.
For those who are wondering why I’m not happy with 351 Hp @ .70 bar. The class I race in Youngtimers, You need to times the horsepower by 4.4 which would mean I need to add 250 Kilo to the car. So, after talking with the team. We will move forward and make all the other upgrades to the car over the winter and before the new race season go back and get the horse power down again.


This Sunday, our last testing for the year



I have been asked a few times, how did we come up with the name Rush Motorsports and was it inspired from the movie “Rush”. The name is in remembrance to my father Rush Clarke III. Here is a very old photo of him with his Indian motor bike. I think he would of liked the Rotary motors too.

Motor is running again. Michael brought his Mazda compression tester and we got some results on a weak battery. Both rotors are with in spec (Front @ 231 rpm & Rear @ 244 rpm below)

The first video shows a rear exhaust (Nov 2014) I’m experimenting with to keep under 100 dB, to meet Youngtimers cup rules. The second video from 2008 is the same rear exhaust which had burned out internally. It has now been repacked and you can definitly hear the difference. I plan to dyno the engine once again, so I can compare this exhaust to others I have used in the past.

Progress on the rear over fenders


The under body, engine bay and cabin are finished with the final coat of white. Came out pretty nice until I made a bad decision to give some missed areas a touch-up. The over spray really changed the nice first coat .. live and learn! So I’ll decided just to move forward, it a race car.  Now I need to make some extra rear over fenders…

19/05/13 – 26,000 spectators and we were ready for Heat 2. We started 5th on the grid and got a good start at the light today, then fell back going into the first corner but quickly moved up again to 5th position. A few laps later, the 4th place car spun in a blind right hand corner. Although avoiding a collision, we did make contact with the wall with the left rear tire but moved up to 4th place overall. During the next lap, the car behavior changed and a lap later, entering the chicane I had a big crash. The race was over for us. Very disappointing. photos from  Lars Krall.. many thanks!

18/05/13 – First heat started late Saturday. We had a bad start… my fault. I couldn’t see the starting lights. We did survive the first corner incident involving three cars. For the restart, we were moved back two positions because the officials use lap times and not race position, this was disappointing because we had moved up the ladder. Again for the restart, I was unable to see the starting lights. During the remainder of the race, we had a comfortable pace in 5th position until the last lap, where we gained a spot up to 4th overall. Photos from Denner photo and unknown

18/05/13 – Saturday time training went well. We were 3.5 seconds faster today with a best lap of 1:26,576. Unfortunately we fell one position from our earlier warm up spot, to 7th for heat 1.

01/01/13 –  Latest news for the teams of Yountimers. We have been invited to race at the Classic Race Aarhus event. This is very exiting for us and our partners. For more in formation:

03/09/12 – Our Second race at Jyllands-Ringen. I would have to sum it up as positive but not what we had hoped for.
During Saturday’s first training, we quickly ran into a problem. We were unable to run wide open due to a unexpected boost cut, in the higher rpm’s. A bit of a disappointment, we qualified 13th out of 36 cars. Adjustment for the first race made the boost cut worse but surprisingly, we were able to finish the race with a 9th place position. Late Saturday night, we made the final decision and changes to the car, that we hoped would eliminate the boost cut for the second training. Sunday was a rebirth for us. Our changes were working and we qualified 3rd.. we were back in business!
Race day on Sunday, our Mazda got a great start and moved up to 2nd. This was short lived and we fell back to 3rd. We stayed there for a while until the car behind us, gave me a ever so lightly tap in the rear… we slid back again to 4th and that’s were we finished. The weekend was over for us..we were very pleased to have solved the problem and go home with some decent points. BUT…That was until we and two other teams battling for 4th, were called up and later given a 20 second penalty for yellow flag infraction. Our final position was dropped to 9th. Clip of the yellow zone infraction.

30/5/12 – Press release ( in Danish. We say thanks for a good weekend at Ring Djursland, which ended with a podium position. Read it here.

21/05/12 – Our first race for 2012 is over. It was a fantastic weekend with good weather and high results. Early morning test, we were able to bed in our new front and rear pads provided by Carbotech and get a feel for the new Stance coilovers. First qualifying the track was wet and we decided to run rain tires which was a mistake as the track dried quickly midway. First laps we were in the top 4 but soon dropped to 8th, to those who chose slicks. Second qualifying, on a dry track, we climbed to the top quickly setting pole position, two seconds quicker than last year even though we have + 85 kilo’s. The new brake and suspension really worked well together. First heat, starting 8th out of 28 cars. We were hit hard in the first turn by another car avoiding an incident. Now unable to run with the front pack, we were able to move up the ladder and finish a respectable 4th place over all. Second heat, starting from pole position. coming in to the first corner we were bumped from behind but this time we held position until the third corner were we slipped to second position. On the final lap we had secured second place, just one second behind the leader. A fantastic weekend which we thank to our loyal sponsors and team.
