High Country Motorsports announce Canberra ARC push
High Country Motorsport has begun season 2019 in less than desirable fashion, but is looking forward to the next round of their campaign, the National Capital Rally, in May.
After taking a proactive approach over the off season in spending some time on improving the engine and driveline of the car, the team suffered a major mechanical issue early on into their most recent outing.
Five hundred metres after the start of the Ada River Rally in Victoria, the team’s Mitsubishi grounded to a halt putting to bed any chances of strong Victorian Rally Championship Points.
Since returning to the workship, the team has been working around the clock getting custom parts re-engineered, produced and fitted to the car.
Team HCM will now enter the Netier National Capital Rally in the ARC section next month, with their eyes firmly set on an ARC2 podium finish.
“We previously ran the Evo 6 in last year’s South Australian round of the championship and were able to record some top five stage times throughout the event,” Chris Higgs said.
“We are hoping for a strong performance from the Mitsubishi Lancer Evo 6 to create a good result for the team, and getting our 2019 season back on track,” he added.
