Update from Goodwood Festival of Speed 0
It is fair to say the weather there has been changeable so far. This is making the hill climb quite slippery with a slick surface mixed with wet rain. His Saturday run can be seen here.
Clayton has had some great runs, alongside some small mechanical issues. He is very much looking forward to flying up the hill today.
We will provide an overall update after the final day of this brilliant festival.

Great Rads partnership with British Racing Driver Clayton Kingman 1
We are very proud at Great Rads to announce that we partnering with exciting British Racing Driver Clayton Kingman.
Clayton is the man behind 'Twitter to Track', the well-documented media campaign that captured fans' hearts by proving that anyone can realise their dreams with hard-work and determination.
Clayton will be racing the legendary Lotus 59 up the hill during the Goodwood Festival of Speed (FOS) in 2016.
Clayton commented, "This is an unbelievable opportunity for me, and one that is a complete dream come true. To think a few years ago I was just a motorsport fan and now, here I am, about to climb into a piece of motorsport history - I simply cant believe it!'
Clayton, who is well known on social media for his 'Twitter to Track' campaign first started out as nothing more than a fan of the sport until a conversation on twitter sparked a new venture, to become a driver. He has since competed in various Dunlop VAG Trophy and MINI Challenge races.
Goodwood Festival of Speed is an annual event which hosts an array of cars from every era and draws in drivers from across the globe such as triple time world champion, Lewis Hamilton and past champion, John Surtees MBE.
Clayton will attempt to be the quickest up the infamous 'Goodwood Hill' whilst driving the Lotus 59 that was featured heavily in the film 'RUSH' in 2013.
He comments, "I was last at Goodwood FOS in 2014, I vowed then that I would, one day, drive at this event - I didn't expect it to be quite this soon, nor in such an incredible car. This is a story that I'll be telling the grandchildren in years to come!'
Clayton's progress will be reported in regular blogs on Great Rads
We will be offering 2 tickets to attend the Festival of Speed, more details will follow shortly on how to enter.

Introduction to Aeon Designer Radiators - Simply stunning! 1
Aeon Design create some of the most stunning radiators available in the market place today.
Just one quick glance through the collection of luxurious heated sculptures is enough to demonstrate how eclectic the range of designs, sizes and influences is.
The Aeon team of designers have been inspired by so many different themes and ideas that it would be impossible to list them all on just one page.
Let's take a look at some of the designs:
The really modern Aeon Cat Ladder - Stainless Steel Towel Radiator
The simply stunning and individual Aeon Lokum Stainless Steel Radiator
The statement piece Aeon Wave Stainless Steel Radiator
The oriental inspired Aeon Bamboo Stainless Steel Radiator
Or what about its little brother, the really different Aeon Bamboo Corner Radiator
All Aeon products are welded using a Tungsten Inert Gas (TIG) welding technique, which results in joints that are equally as strong as the main body of the radiator, as well as being a visually pleasing part of the whole piece.
Another technique allows the creation of stunning bars that have been twisted uniformly to create a line of alternating brushed and polished steel surfaces. A special twisting machine allows us to manipulate stainless steel poles of almost any length and size to create a vertical or horizontal design with up to three twists per line. See the Aeon Twister for an example of this - what a head turner.
