Simon Podlewski and Hankook Tyres had a HUGE weekend at World Time Attack
Simon Podlewski takes home a bag of trophies and a nice Hankook Tyres cheque after an eventful weekend at the 2011 World Time Attack!
The team thought on Wednesday evening before the following mornings practice session that their outright chances were blown after discovering a problem with the dog-box. The team decided to punch on and fit a standard unknown, wrecking yard gearbox to the race car.
Well, all this did was fire up Simon and he went out on the first session and posted a time that would of won last year!! Everyone's eyes opened and mouths dropped to the floor!!
With one session to go on Saturday afternoon the team had just been pipped by a couple of tenths by a local 4wd Evo team that had hundreds of laps experience at Eastern Creek.
So we fitted up a fresh set of tyres to attack again but unfortunately a unrepairable engine sensor issue forced the team to stay in the pit and nervously settle for 2nd in Open Class, 1st 6 Cylinder and 1st Rear-wheel-drive and collected a welcomed cheque from Hankook Competition Tyres!
Well done guys, everyone knows if you could of used the dog-box you went there with the trophy would have been one size bigger!
