Extreme 4wd Preview

Posted on

The Carnarvon Motel, Three Springs 330 has seen a massive 11 Extreme 4wds enter the event. With such a big field it is almost impossible to pick a winner for the final round of the 2016 CAMS, PGS Industries WAORC

#814 – Leigh Cooper has had a good year so far this year. Showing lots of pace and pushing some of the much bigger 4wds he sees himself sitting strongly in the point’s championship. Cooper is due for a breakthrough run and Three Springs could very well be the place to do it

#822 – Newcomers to the sport Dylan James and Jason Jackson bring a unique car to this event. They are running a Nissan Navara Turbo Diesel which James has built over the past 12-18 months. All eyes will be on the #822 as they tackle their first ever off road racing event

#823 – Brad Krepp’s Nissan Patrol is going to be one of the competitors to beat in this class. With serious horsepower under the bonnet and Krepp’s silky smooth driving style the #823 machine has a target painted firmly on its back bumper…You just have to catch him first

#834 – Daniel Smith is one of those competitors who will be chasing Krepp down at Three Springs. The #834 machine is another one packing serious horsepower. Unlike Krepp, Smith runs an RB30 Turbo motor which when it’s on song propels the GQ Ute to some seriously quick lap times. If Smith can keep it together he will go close to the top step of the Extreme 4wd podium

#847 – Martin Hardman is making the trek to Three Springs in his #847, Zip Tie Racing Range Rover. Powerd by a 350 chev this is not your average Rangie and is more then capable of springing a few upsets at the final round of the 2016 CAMS, PGS Industries WAORC

#848 – Owen and Mitchell Davies in their Pirtek Midland, Forch, Valvoline sponsored Nissan Navara look primed and ready to tackle the Three Springs course. The #848 is a seriously quick car on its day and the variety of terrains that lay ahead in the final round of this year’s championship may play into their hands. Keep an eye on the red Navara as they hunt down the 4wd field

#850 – Garry Povah’s Holden Colorado has undergone some serious R&D since we first saw it debut at Three Springs in 2015. More power, more suspension and more seat time are 3 key elements which ensure that the Lawn Doctor sponsored Holden is going to be very tough to beat

#866 – Mark Murray is another who has been tinkering in the shed. With the change from a manual to automatic, the Dirty Boost Racing Team have been hard at work just to try and get the Patrol to the start line. If they can get it all done and get to the track don’t be surprised if Murray is one of the class leaders. His GQ Patrol packs a massive punch thanks to a 1HD FTE which has seen some work by G Turbo and HP Diesel so that it can make power comparable to even the best of 6L Petrol V8’s

#875 – Ash Ryan and Tom Ingham are back again for another crack in the Outlaws 4×4 Penrite sponsored Ford Raptor. This will be the big black trucks first crack at the Three Springs track, but with a full seasons development under their belt, Ryan must be getting close to the break through performance that they have been promising for a while now

#881 – Pair of Fongs Racing tackle the Three Springs event in a unique bright red Land Rover Defender. With Dave Fong at the wheel and Matthew Fong riding shotgun the #881 machine is one pairing which have the experience and all the tools at their disposal to mount a charge for the class podium. Fong is known for always bringing the car home and with 330kms ahead of them that may just be the game plan which will net the best result

888 – Scott Bryce’s Proformance Motorsport 4wd Trophy Truck is an engineering masterpiece. Whilst it is yet to realise its full potential, Bryce and his team are edging closer and closer to the front of the field, not just in this class but also the outright standings. Keep an eye on the #888 machine as Bryce bangs it through the cogs to chase down his rival Brad Krepp
