Well it looks like we will get a start of sorts for the 2021 Off Road Racing season. Whilst we will no doubt get uncertainty in the lead up that events may or may not go ahead, we hope to see some racing of sorts in 2021, unlike 2020 for those based in Victoria!
The team is looking forward to turning the wheels of the SMU Racing Jimco in anger at the Rainbow Rises 240 event to give the car and crew a short run before heading to the AORC opener in Queensland for the Cobb and Co St George 399 – just 11 days later.
Borders open, no quarantining, no new cases etc in the lead ups to these events will be the new norm for racing to go ahead but, after no racing last year, we can’t wait to hit the dirt!
A massive welcome to official new sponsors supporting the team in 2021 Dutton Garage, Dutton One, Sellyourcarfast and Targa Australia – all businesses within the Dutton Group.
Dutton Garage in Richmond Victoria is internationally renowned for classic, collectable, luxury and super modern sports cars. Even for those just looking for a latte in the famous Dutton Cafe, looking at LaFerrari’s and 911s can be a nice way to spend the morning!
Dutton One outlets are now appearing all across Australia – 11 sites in total and growing. Pre owned prestige and luxury vehicles en masse so if you are looking for that BMW M3 or Range Rover for the kids, Dutton One is it.
Sellyourcarfast is the easiest no nonsense way to sell your car fast in hours at a great price. Sick of tyre kickers? Head to the website and literally you can have your car sold and cash received in 24 hours!
And for those who are sick of getting dirt in their eyes and looking for the next racing horizon, look no further than Targa – the ultimate in tarmac rallying. With the showcase event being Targa Tasmania being backed up with Targa High Country and Targa Great Barrier Reef to make up the Targa Australia Championship. These events cater for competitors and tourers alike (no helmet needed – just enter and roll up!) and are a must do for Bucket Listers. Those crossing over from off road will feel right at home with the flowing non lap format.
Thanks again to all of our partners that help get us to the start line at every event. Look forward to getting a good warm up at Rainbow before the fun begins in earnest at St George AORC1 ! Watch out for more updates as the days count down…..
