Extreme 4wd Preview – Three Springs 360

Posted on Updated on

A massive 9 Extreme 4wd’s have lined up to tackle the 2017 Carnarvon Motel Three Springs 360. This field always throws up spectacular racing with not much splitting the front runners in this field

822 – Dylan James makes his return to racing in the Compound Motorsports Navara. James is one of 3 diesel competitors running in the Extreme 4wd class and has made good use of a winter break making a few more tweaks to the race truck in his bid for Extreme 4wd glory

823 – Brad Krepp is one of the fastest drivers in the sport and make no mistake will be looking for a strong run again in the orange GQ. With Kerry Yaxley alongside, the dynamic duo will go into this event as class favorites and one to watch over the course of the weekend

828 – Caleb Bradfield and Rhys Bentink make their racing debut in the ex Brodie Hayes RB30 powered GQ Patrol. Bradfield and Bentink have had exposure to off road with the Gturbo Racing Team and if they can find their feet quickly they have a very quick package and may surprise some of the regulars

832 – Nicholas Van Geest has been hard at work on his immaculately presented GU Patrol. Engine issues restricted his run at the Mid West Challenge, but if they can be resolved you can expect navigator Daniel Smith will be in for a white knuckle ride along the edge of the Yarra Lakes

848 – Mitchell Davies is one of the class favorites in the #848 Navara. This crew has excellent race pace and all things going well will be pushing hard for a class win. The Pirtek Midland sponsored machine is purpose built for conditions exactly like what Three Springs will throw up

850 – Garry Povah in the Lawn Doctor Racing Holden Colorado has one of the fastest vehicles at his disposal. With V8 supercar pedigree, this V8 rocket will be one to watch over the course of the weekend

853 – Daniel Jones makes his racing debut in the Ex Daniel Fahey TD42 Patrol which won the Extreme 4wd class in its most recent start at the Mid West Challenge. If Jones can come to grips with the vehicle quickly he will be on course for a strong result at the end of his first weekends racing

866 – Mark Murray is one of the most exciting drivers in the class. His spectacular driving style coupled with the unique Turbo Diesel combination under the bonnet means that the blue HP Diesel machine is one to keep an eye on.

881 – Dave Fong and son Jaxon have entered the multiclub section of the Three Springs event, which sees competitors do a reduced number of laps. One of the advantages of this multiclub format is that it enables younger competitors such as Jaxon to get involved with the sport. All things going well the #881 machine should be primed and ready for a strong result over the course of the weekend
