Shepheard ready to resume rally battle
- 11th July 2007, 3:15pm
Having won two rounds of this year’s QRC, and coming second in the other, Steve and Tom have done some major modifications to the car for the 2007 season. The team at George Shepheard Automotive have stripped the car and rebuilt it to try and give them every opportunity to win this year’s QRC.
Rob Clark from Full Boar Race Engines rebuilt the engine, working his magic after Rally Queensland, and Shepheard says it’s a totally different car.
“At round three of the QRC I got to drive the car after Rob rebuilt the engine, and it was tops,” Shepheard said. “The car flies - you can just throw it into a corner and jump on the pedal and it goes where you want it. It is going to take a bit to get used to it, but I am really looking forward to the roads in Rockhampton as they really suit my driving style.”
The 2007 season is going to be a cracker. After three rounds there is less than ten points between first and second outright places in the series.
“After Rockhampton we are off to Coffs Harbor for the joint round of the QRC and NSW series, so the boys at GSA will be busy getting things ready from event to event,” Shepheard added.
The Rydges Capricorn Rally is hosted by the Central Queensland Motorsporting Car Club and comprises of 14 stages. It is round 4 of the City Subaru Queensland Rally Championship and Round 3 of the City Subaru Clubman Rally Series.
