The 2007 SA Rally Championship is well and truly underway with this weekend’s Robertstown Rally taking place in and around Robertstown and Kapunda.

The reigning SA Championship winners, DNA Rallysport, have just completed preparation on the team’s Mitsubishi Lancer Evo III, with driver Declan Dwyer happy with the car.

“We had a pretty long off season this year so this gave us plenty of time to get some maintenance done on the car,” Dwyer said. “The team have been pretty busy over the last few weeks and we can’t thank them enough. I would also like to thank our sponsors. These are the guys that make it all possible!

“This year has been a little more difficult than usual with the birth of my son (the Dwyer’s second born) consuming a lot of rally car preparation time!” joked Declan, “but we will be pressing on and see if we can defend the SA Rally Championship title.”

The Robertstown Rally will also see Steve Glenney debut his new Subaru (the ex-Cody Crocker Asia Pacific Rally Championship car), so the pace will definitely be on. Also entered and with a real shot at outright honours are Matt Selley (in Glenney’s old Subaru WRX STi) and Gary Brown in one of the country’s fastest Galant VR4’s.

Team Manager, and occasional co-driver, Amanda Dwyer, joked that “the boys have to be careful with the car, because there’s not much time for big repairs between this event and the Rally of South Australia!”

“We’ll be pushing pretty hard, but we have to look after the car a bit as well,” co-driver Craig Adams said. “We’d like to post a good result and get some time in the car before Rally of SA.”

DNA Rallysport is supported by Robot Technologies Australia, Detex Security, Tyrepower Blackwood, Flying Finish Motorsport, Backyard Billy and Fire Equipment and Training.
