Triple Seven Rallysport return for IROQ
- 18th May 2012, 8:23am
Held from May 25-27, IROQ is the biggest rally in Australia for 2012, with the best crews from around Australia and the Asia Pacific reigon coming to do battle on Queensland's beautiful Sunshine Coast.
Entered in the Rallyschool.com Australian Junior Challenge, the Triple Seven Rallysport crew of Guy Tyler and new navigator Damian Reed are looking forward to taking on Australia's best young drivers in what is the third qualifying round of the junior series.
They will be competing in their Renault Clio 172, which Guy actually purchased from Queensland in Janurary and will be engaged in a battle of the hatchbacks, with Adrian Coppin and Steven Mackenzie in their ST Fiesta's and local Luke Page in his Excel all doing battle for 2wd RAJC hounors.
"I have never competed up in Queensland before, but from what i've heard it is a very rough and tough rally and we are doing everything we can to prepare ourselves for a great event". Says Tyler, who also commented: "We have been able to upgrade the Clio's gearbox, as we struggled at Rally Calder with a theoretical top speed of 280km/h! But it is now much more appropriately geared to a top speed of 180km/h, which will help us get the most out of the 2 litre engine".
