It has been ten months since Pines Enduro last year but the SMU #7 Jimco makes its debut this weekend at the Waikerie Riverlands Enduro. It has been a very large job getting the car back to the start line in what has been a ground up rebuild, but the team couldn’t be happier with the final product.
In addition to this has been the completion of a two year project by Shane Wilson Competition Engines which will also see the new Ford Ecoboost V6 twin turbo makes its debut this weekend. It is early days with this engine but signs are promising. It is fair to say that we will hopefully see improvement in this engine over the coming 12 months as we learn more.
A big thank you to Albins Off Road Gear who helped solve our gear election issue that we encountered at Moorex. Also a massive thank you to HJC Helmets who have us in our new Si-12. Looks great, unbelievably comfortable, great airflow and they work – we know!
Also welcoming Matthew Salt into the navigator’s chair for this weekend. Tony Butler is unavailable due to work commitments so Salty steps in. Matt and Salty go back to Portland Sand dune days playing around in the sand and are looking forward to the race ahead.
Safe drive to all heading to the track and hopefully look forward to seeing all at the finish line !
