It seems like eternity since the completion of the Harvestco King of the Dunes at Portland but the Tatts Finke Desert Race is under 50 days away and counting.
The team is really looking forward to having an issue free run at this race which hasn’t been the case for the team in past outings to Alice Springs! With Leigh Wells on driving duties at Sea Lake, Shannon Jennings jumps into the navigator’s seat for her first go at Finke. Shannon has been doing some racing in Dad AJ’s buggy and in more recent times navigating for Damien Nicol in his Trophy Truck so will be no stranger to it all when the flag drops. We welcome Shannon and Dad AJ to the team for the race.
We are hoping our Shane Wilson Ford Ecoboost will show further signs of refinement as we take on the whoops of Finke. Additionally we will be doing some pre race testing where Cameron from Racer Imports will be dialling in the car from a suspension perspective. Exciting times hopefully ahead for the #7 SMU Racing Jimco.
Look our for further updates as the team heads into Finke 17!
