PINES 2016

The SMU Racing team is looking forward to the Teagle Excavations Pines Enduro this weekend in Millicent SA.  The car is constantly being refined in readiness for 2017 and 420kms in the Pine forests of Tantanoola will provide a great test for the SMU #7 Jimco powered by the Shane Wilson Competition Engines Ford Ecoboost twin turbo V6.

Tim Collard has headed the charge preparing the car as it returns to the scene of the infamous Pine tree excursion last year on lap one.  Since returning from Lake Tyrrell, the car has undergone some minor renovations as we look to continually improve our overall package.  Matthew Salt jumps in to the Navigator’s seat with Tony Butler’s navigating career over before it began due to ongoing work commitments.  Salty’s navigating duties were cut short at Waikerie due to a blown inlet manifold, and is hoping the team can get a finish under its belt at the gruelling Pines circuit this weekend.

Lastly we would like to thank Lucas McInerney from Sea lake who is one of our great supporters.  This fantastic picture that he hand drew, now hangs with pride of place at SMU HQ and sits above where the SMU Jimco gets prepped.  Thanks Lucas.

With our HJC  Helmets strapped on tight (!), we look forward to seeing everyone at Pines in what should be a great weekend!  Safe travels to all those going.
