Redback Racing to make history in Targa Tasmania 2015!

Redback Racing to make history in Targa Tasmania 2015!

On Monday the 27th of April 2015, Adam Spence, Erin Kelly and the team at Redback Racing will enter the record books, being the first race team to run their Nissan R35 GTR with a one piece, full carbon fibre wheel set. These wheels, produced by Carbon Revolution of Geelong, Australia, are the world’s first aftermarket carbon fibre automotive wheel.

The Redback Racing team have been working along side the Australian owned and operated Carbon Revolution on the fitment of a wheel suitable for their GTR.

Adam Spence, team principle, said “We did some early testing on the wheels and you could feel the difference immediately, completely changing the dynamics of the car. Acceleration and breaking performances were improved over our old aluminium wheels due to dramatic weight savings, the Carbon Revolution CR-9 has improved the overall wheel and tyre combination, which makes such a difference to the cars handling”

“We know we still have more to learn about the GTR and what it is capable of and after a solid 5th outright at Targa High Country in November last year, which was our first outing in the car, we know that running such a great product will help us gain those precious seconds needed on every stage to be competitive again this year”.

Brett Gass, Executive Director of Carbon Revolution said “Our partnership with Redback Racing has been a tremendous project for Carbon Revolution.  We have been looking for the opportunity to work with an innovative racing team to prove our wheel technology in the harshest conditions possible. We are looking forward to supporting Redback Racing as they strive for great success in this world famous race”

The team at Redback Racing would once again like to take this opportunity to thank all of their support team and our major sponsors Vivant, Corporate Impressions Australia, Cyara, Hi-Tec Batteries, Motul as well as Oracle Creative, Cartek, JustJap, Freem, Styling Spacing Spaces, Renotech and Nuance.

Redbackracing set out at the beginning of the season with a very aggressive goal of winning the 2wd Showroom Category in the Australian Targa Championship.

What has been completed so far is three wins and three second placed at every round of the championship. Emphasizing not only pace but reliability.

Team principle Adam Spence “I am so happy with what the whole team have been able to achieve this year, its such a team effort and every single one of the team have made their own and unique contribution that has lead to this, Targa Tas is the most challenging and to be treated with care, the prep and testing has gone well so far”

Justin Hocevar CEO Renault Australia: “On behalf of Renault Australia, I would like to extend our best wishes to Adam Spence and the team from RedBack Racing for the upcoming Targa Tasmania round.  It has been fantastic to see the dominance of the award-winning Megane RS across the championship and we look forward to another podium finish for the team.”

The combination of Adam Spence and Erin Kelly will again be in car 922 and Andrew Bollom and Lee Challoner-Miles in car 933.
