Willowbank Raceway held the 1st of the 2012 Top Sportman Series on the weekend. Reece McGregor and the Heat Treatments Skyline thought it would be a good chance to have some test runs in their worlds fastest RB26 powered 4wd skyline. The team worked hard all day and were rewarded with a final pass or 7.64, not far off their 7.56 record, although something tells me theres plenty more to come from this car again.
Another car using the test lane was Rob Novak in his Jett Racing 4G63 powered Datsun 1200. The team made adjustments through the day and saw a PB 7.35 @ 187mph on the second last pass of the night, the final wild pass on video then saw a transmission failure but a happy team none the less.
Final team testing was the Direct Clutch/Promodz Rx7, the car is 3/4 chassis and a running 3rotor 20BT tweaked by Mazfix. The team recently made adjustments in the rear and also in transmission and are starting to see results, it ran a 7.99 @ 171mph through the day, then later in the night suffered a leaking Boost pipe. Owners Jerry and Dan tell me they havent even started to push the motor yet, so another car with plenty more to come, and im sure that pb 7.80 will soon be slashed.
These cars should all be running at the up and coming Sydney Jamboree at WSID and by the looks of things have some unfinished business they want to take care of :)
PB 7.19 @ 190 ROB NOVAK - 2L 4G63 DATSUN (TEST DAY 1/09/2012)
Jett Racing had their Datsun 1200 Ute out today doing some testing for the upcoming Jamboree. The car behind driver Rob Novak, has only been getting faster lately and smashed out a personal best 7.19 @ 190mph on the final run of it's day. The transmission was then removed and put in team owner, Collin Willshire's 2L 4G63 Mitsubishi Eclipse. Collin ran Australia's first 6 second 4 cylinder pass with a 6.98 @ 197mph but sadly was not captured on my camera :( We will make sure we get the next one. You can see both cars at the QLD Jamboree on September 22nd and 23rd.
7.53 @ 185mph NEW AWD WORLD RECORD - REECE MCGREGOR
Reece Mcgregor and the Heat Treatments R32 were out again today at the Willowbank Sportmans meet. The car went hard all day, producing a new all wheel drive world record pass of 7.53 @ 185 mph. The team says the car is on low Boost and there's plenty more to come out of it at the next meet.
