The International Rally of Queensland provided the platform for the Full-On Rallysport team to close the gap on their main competitors. 2010 is the first season the team has been able to commit to a full rally program since 2007, and there has been a steady improvement with each round.  

The team had not competed at Rally Queensland since 2007, and with the route changes have had to write new pace notes for the majority of the stages. This negated a lot of the home round advantage.

This year team driver Bruce Fullerton has been looking to get closer to the times of his main competitors in the Premier League, Michael Boaden and Mark Fawcett, and step up the pace overall.

“At IRoQ, we managed to get closer to Michael Boaden’s times, and for the first time we traded times with Mark Fawcett, beating him on 40% of the stages.  This was a good step forward for us,” said Bruce.

The Full-On Rallysport team continues to improve the Mitsubishi Evo 6 they are campaigning, and the improvements are giving the crew more confidence to attack the stages.

“We have been improving our pace notes with every event this season” said co-driver Hugh Reardon-Smith “and the installation of an in-car camera allows our whole team to have input into ways we can improve the performance further. It’s showing now with better stage times and improvements in our national seeding.”

The Evo 6 is now being prepared for Rally Victoria in November, and the team is looking forward to a brand new event and new stages.  It should be a great way to finish the 2010 rally season.

Full-On Rallysport is supported by Fullerton Financial Services and Queenstown Property Investments in New Zealand.
