Ready for a “Full-On” tilt at Rally SA
- 25th July 2007, 9:25am
In Queensland Bruce Fullerton and Hugh Reardon-Smith finished Heat 1 in an excellent 7th outright and took maximum points in the Rally Challenge series. In Heat 2 they were in 11th place when the sumpguard caught on rocks in a creek crossing, and the resulting delays and repairs saw the crew finish in 16th place, after making use of the restart rules.
The Rally of Canberra, usually a favourable event for the team, had to be missed due to clashing with unmissable weddings, so the team is itching to start the South Australian event.
2006 was Full-On Rallysport’s first attempt in South Australia, and they weren’t disappointed with some terrific stages and great crowds. A spin in Heat 1 cost them five places, such was the closeness of the competition, but they finished inside the top 20, and for Heat 2 in the top 15.
“We’d heard a lot about the SA roads,” Reardon-Smith said, “and they really were exciting, so I can’t wait to get back this year.”
For 2007, the team have their new Evo 6, which is quicker than the previous WRX, and after such a positive start in Queensland they are aiming at the top 10, and more importantly a strong points finish in the Rally Challenge. Last season they finished fourth in the BP Ultimate Challenge, despite only contesting three rounds.
Recently Fullerton and Reardon-Smith ran the second round of the KCF Rallysport Series in Queensland as zero car to test a few changes, which was immediately successful with fastest time on the first stage, despite running carefully to fulfil the zero car’s role.
