Pro Buggy Class Preview

Posted on Updated on

As if this trying to picking a winner from this class wasn’t difficult enough, a last minute entry from Travis Robinson has turned the Pro Buggy field on its head! Heading into Round 1 of the 2017 CAMS, Carnarvon Motel WAORC the battle at the front of the field is going to be red hot!

#13 – Travis Robinson in the Outer Bounds Racing Jimco is one of the most traveled and most successful Pro Buggy pilots in WA. Its not often that Trav tackles a WAORC event, but when he does he is very tough to beat! Lucky 13 is here to put the Pro Buggy field on notice!

#22 – Grant Payne is one competitor who has been knocking on the door of an elusive WAORC outright win. One of the quickest drivers in the field, Payne will be hoping a consistent run in the CMM Automotive Racing Buggy will see him spraying the champage come Sunday afternoon

#42 – Going into the GTurbo Rod Hatter Memorial, Perenjori 360 Peter Barrett and his Carnarvon Motel WA Racing team are the underdogs of the class. Whilst his Bullet buggy is much smaller than the other 6 Pro Buggy competitors, that doesn’t mean Barrett doesn’t have the capability and determination to spring an upset! Keep an eye on the #42 as it just may surprise a few people when the checkered flag is flying

#53 – Robert Collings in the #53 Chevy powered Razorback is a dark horse of the field. Every time they take to the track they increase the pace and pile more and more pressure on the class regulars. A class or outright podium is not out of reach for this crew

#923 – Mark Cramer and his Fuelburna Racing crew have pulled out all stops to be ready for the 2017 season. A ground up rebuild at SS Racetech and a fresh new look sees Cramer in pole position for an all out assault on the WAORC

#968 – Like a good wine, some things just get better with time. Brad Cooper appears to be one of those things. In 2016 he waged an epic battle with Brett Smith for the WAORC outright title and if he can recapture that form, Cooper could find himself in the box seat for a win at Perenjori

#996 – Steven Phillips will be hoping that he can force his way onto the podium at Perenjori in 2017. After just missing out in the 2016 edition, Phillips has the determination and pace to push for a big result. Keep an eye and ear out for the sweet sounding Ballistic Racing Buggy!
