2009

Competed in limited rounds of the Improved Production State Championship.

  • Smarter than Smoking Night Masters March 2009
  • Tankworld SuperTrucks October 2009
  • WA State Championships October 2009

Competed in limited rounds due to work commitments and budget constraints. Some reliability issues hampered our success - this often happens when a new race car is built, however, the speed of the vehicle is very impressive. During the WA State Championship round we managed to pass for the lead before the engine overheated. This caused reduced power and speed therefore we had to settle for 2nd position.
