Finally Racing!

Well after nine months on the sidelines, following SMU Racing’s acrobatics display at Pines last year, the team are finally hitting the track at Moorex this weekend. The car is brand new and with new power plant in the back, Ford Ecoboost twin turbo V6 built by Shane Wilson Competition Engines, we can’t wait.

MTQ Dandenong where the team was great in tuning our new motor

New navigator Tony Butler is also having his first taste in Pro Class in the #7 Jimco which he is looking forward to.  Fresh from competing with SMU favourite Leigh Wells at Sea Lake in June, it will be all systems go when he is strapped into the SMU Jet for the first time this weekend.

A massive thanks to the team for the hard work in getting back to the track in better than new condition with the added complication of changing engines along the way!  Win, lose or draw it is a win just getting there.

Hopefully we can get some useful miles into the car, engine and driver in what should be a great warm up for Waikerie.

To those going, weIMG_6042 look forward to seeing you at the track!
