Pooncarie 25 years on….

The SMU Racing team is off to AORC Round 2 this weekend in Pooncarie NSW. The team was last here 25 years ago in a Class 2 buggy. 500km race, a young 24 year old MH behind the wheel and the best we could muster was a 3rd in class result with some Kombi gearbox issues plaguing the day probably due to the massive horsepower of the L16 Datsun 1600 from memory!!

Anyway the team will be looking for a better result this time round and we couldn’t be happier with what has transpired since St George. Issue found to be an injector jammed on resulting in the excessive fuel use. All fixed now with Michael from Quickbitz weaving his final bitz (!) of magic on the dyno as we speak.

Car to leave for Coomealla Thursday night Show and Shine before we get under way racing at Pooncarie on Saturday and Sunday.

Really looking forward to hitting the track and getting a good run in.

Safe travel to all getting there and stay updated on Instagram and facebook over the weekend for team updates.

Thanks again to all of our partners in helping us get to races this year.  Without you we wouldn’t be there
