Mt Baw Baw Wrap-up – Electrical Gremlin almost steals the show

Mt Baw Baw Wrap-up – Electrical Gremlin almost steals the show

Mt Baw Baw Rally is an event where the tight and twisty roads really suit the teams Renault Clio RS220.

On the Saturday the team ran solid top 10 times and captured the lead of showroom 2wd.

Then just before lunch on the Sunday the team half way through a stage collected a large stick under the car that dislodges some of the car wiring which meant the car was not able to select a gear.

With some quick thinking and reaction time from the service crew they arrived at the car and made some quick repairs. These repairs allowed the team to compete the final stage of the event and take out the Showroom 2wd category to put us in the lead of the 2018 championship.

Best result so far for team

Snowy River Sprint 2017 – Another 2nd in Class

Snowy River Sprint 2017 – Another 2nd in Class

The team ran yet another 2nd in class at this weekends Snowy River Spinrt held in Victoria at Lakes Entrance.

Unfortunately the team had some issues that effected performance for most of day 1 which unfortunately meant that times were effected and they slipped down to 12th position overall and 2nd in class.

On the Sunday the team left the service park with a well performing car that unfortunately was not going to run in the remainder of the event as the event was cancelled due to bush fires closing in.

These points will be valuable in the hunt for the championship title where the team are in the top 10 overall and second in class.

Adam and Lee would again like to thanks team sponsors, family and helpers. Also a special call out to Reno Tech who have build a great new car for the team.

Mt Baw Baw Sprint – Day 2

Mt Baw Baw Sprint – Day 2

During the last weekend the team competed in round 1 of the Australian Tarmac Rally Championship, testing a new car in conjunction with the team at RenoTech who are leading Renault Sport specialists.

For this event Adam teamed up with Australian Tarmac Rally Guru – Steve Glenney to help make handling changes to the car and improve its performance.

The car which is a 2015 Clio RS220 prepared by the team under showroom category rules making the modifications minimal.

The car stunned the team on its debut outing. Always performing in the top 10 stage times and getting as high as 5th outright in the final stage of the day. Finishing the event in 7th outright and 2nd in showroom 2WD.

The wet conditions helped the car against much more powerful vehicles. The team look forward to the next event – Lake Mount Sprint which is only just over a month away!

Team Redbackracing would like to thank our sponsors and support team RenoTech for their continued support and look forward to a successful championship throughout 2017.

Mt Baw Baw Sprint – Day 1

Mt Baw Baw Sprint – Day 1

Round one of the Australian Tarmac Rally Championship is underway and with the team entering this first event of the Championship with a newly built Renault Clio.

The first stages were always going to be a learning experience with the crew getting used to the car in its first competitive outing, but as the day progressed the stage times improved throughout. The car is somewhat different to the previously ran Nissan R35 GTR and the team believe the Renotech prepared Clio still has plenty more to give.

After 8 stages through the Mt Baw Baw mountain range the team sit 8th outright and the second day of the event has a greater number of kilometers to run, so will provide a real test to see how they can progress, keep tuned for an update post the second day of Mt Baw Baw Sprint.

Successful Snowy River Sprint

Successful Snowy River Sprint

After 12 years of friendship and team work, Adam Spence and Lee Challoner-Miles paired up to participate in the Australian Tarmac Rally event - Snowy River Sprint. The race ran for two days with over 300km's of competitive stages around the East Gipsland shire in Victoria.

The teams day one performance clearly indicated that Adam and Lee were pushing for a high ranking performance, even though the pair had never raced as a driver / navigator crew and that neither had been involved in a rally since April, some six months ago. The Nissan GTR R35 performed well through the morning stages and at lunch break the service crew identified some minor mechanical works that further improved the cars performance through the afternoon stages, with the team completing day one in forth place outright.

At the beginning of day two, it was clear to all competitors involved, from the dark clouds covering the East Gipsland shire that rain would impact the day. Adam & Lee, with growing confidence for the performance on their first day, took on the challenging roads from Buchan to Orbost where rain did intervene, the GTR performed impeccably throughout the wet conditions and helped guide Adam and Lee to forth place outright second place in both category & class.

The team at Redbackracing would, once again, like to take this opportunity to thank all of their support crew and sponsors - Corporate Impressions Australia, Cyara, Albins Performance transmissions, Hi-Tec Batteries, Carbon Revolution, Dirrawong, Oracle Creative and Motul. Without their valuable and unwavering support we’d be unable to compete in the forthcoming championship” said, Adam Spence.
