AORC Opener St George 2022

The countdown to St George is in its final stages with 4 days until the rubber hits the dirt for Prologue for the AORC Round 1.

For SMU Racing we could not be happier with the prep for the big race.  The car has had a refresh after not doing much for the last two years due to covid.  It definitely would have been nice to get some more seat time in, but we are running with the theory that off road driving is a little bit like riding a bike…hopefully it shouldn’t take too long to get back in the groove!

The SMU Jimco is currently en route to St George with the remainder of the team flying in Thursday. Again Prologue is on Friday afternoon with a Shoot out Saturday morning before getting underway for the main event not long after.

The race looks to be hotly contested with over 100 entries which is a great start to the Championship. Up the front will be a real battle with Rentsch, Howells, Gartner, brother Beau Robinson and a host of others all in with a big chance for outright honours. For SMU Racing it will be about finishing and hopefully collecting some points in the process with the team scheduled in for at least the first three AORC rounds for 2022.

A massive thank you to all of our partners before embark on 2022. We appreciate your support.
