Production 4wd Class Preview

Posted on Updated on

The Production 4wd class is boasting one of its strongest fields of the year at the final round of the 2016 CAMS, PGS Industries WAORC. With a field of 6 entered into the Carnarvon Motel Three Springs 330 there will be no doubt that it will be game on when the lights go out and the final round of the season kicks off.

#707 – Alan Gibbs is a newcomer to the WAORC. His little Suzuki Jimny has competed at the Gascoyne Dash in recent years but is making their first attempt at a WAORC event at Three Springs. This little pocket rocket may have the agility to upset some of its bigger Production 4wd brothers at a Three Springs track which rewards good driving

#727 – Baxter Racing are back for their 3rd round of the WAORC this year. A late entry as driver Steven was waiting for the birth of his son (congratulations on the next generation of racer being born), the #727 racing machine has been getting quicker and quicker each event and is set for a real crack at the top 3 at Three Springs

#750 – Chris Dawes in the Roadrunner Off Road Racing machine is expected to be one of the quickest in the Production 4wd field this weekend.  Dawes and navigator Zeb Casey will be using their experience together to try and outfox the other class runners. Dawes will be hoping that there is not a repeat of 2014 when he ran out of fuel during the first section of the Three Springs event dropping him way down the order

#764 – Class Championship leader Ben Armstrong and Dave Turner will be hoping to round out a breakout season with a strong result. The 3L GQ Patrol has run strongly all year and a good result here will see them take out a very well deserved maiden WAORC class championship

#777 – Nicholas Van Geest was blisteringly quick at the Cochranes Transport Badgingarra 250. If he can maintain that form and speed he will be very tough to top at the Carnarvon Motel Three Springs 330. The #777 GU Patrol is a very well sorted machine and most certainly capable of a class win if things go their way

#790 – Gturbo Racing’s Graeme Bentink is guaranteed to bring something unique to this Production 4wd battle. The only diesel in the field, Bentink has been working on his VDJ79 cruiser since Badgingarra and will be hoping for a return to the form that saw him take class wins at Bencubbin and Kalgoorlie. Whilst flat tyres and a broken front diff stopped him at Badgy you can be sure that Bentink and his crew will be aiming to leave the opposition in a cloud of soot at Three Springs
