Orders keen to make amends
- 17th August 2006, 8:13am
Current leaders of class P5 in the Australian Rally Championship, Will Orders and Toni Feaver, set out this weekend to compete for a podium position in Toyota Rally of South Australia in the rejuvenated Motorsport Parts –Administr8 Subaru WRX, which runs solely on BP Ultimate pump fuel.
With a new engine fitted last week to take advantage of the faster roads in South Australia, Orders is confident of taking a key position in the rally.
“This is the rally that cost me the Subaru RS Challenge last year and I am out to show how we can perform on these great roads,” Orders said.
After driving in the last round in Tasmania on a standard engine from a wrecker, the team has set out to prepare the car and ensure it is in top shape for the rally this weekend. Murray Coote has also re-tuned the Proflex suspension to suit the flowing roads and has set the car up for high speed stability.
After testing last week, Orders proclaimed he was happy with the power increase over the standard engine. The car has been tuned to maximise the performance of BP Ultimate fuel and he has proved he can run with the outright contenders, running as high as second outright in the Rally of Queensland and finishing in the top five in the following round in Tasmania.
Whilst in 4th place in the BP Challenge, Orders is confident of outpacing series leader Simon Jansen who drives an older model Lancer Evo 3.
The weather will play a big part in this weekend's result and with thousands of spectators expected, crews are eager to put on a show.
Will and Toni are supported by Motorsport Parts and Adminsitr8. Additional support is provided from Pedders, Repsol and new sponsor TSV Holdings.
