Supaloc Racing All Set for Island Challenge

May 25

Supaloc Racing is all set for Round 2 of the Australian GT Championship at Phillip Island this weekend after a hectic couple of months of preparation and testing.

The team will again run two cars, with Kevin Weeks driving his Ford GT and Andrew Taplin competing in the Supaloc Lamborghini Gallardo. Taplin has secured a new sponsor from Maesbury Plumbing after his extremely competitive performance in the first round of the championship at the Clipsal 500.

All the crew at Supaloc Racing have been extremely busy rebuilding the two cars, following on from the damage sustained at Clipsal, but everyone in the team is confident of a very competitive performance at Phillip Island.

“The test at Phillip Island was all about giving the car a shakedown prior to the race meeting at the Island and making sure everyone was comfortable, and it all went according to plan,” Supaloc Racing technical director Oscar Fiorinotto said.

“We tuned the springs, dampers and anti-roll bars to suit the high-speed, constant radius corners at Phillip Island, which are very different to the confines of the Adelaide street circuit where the corners are much slower and sharper, and the cars are pounding over the kerbs.

“Kevin was very comfortable in the car and he is really driving the Ford GT well, and there were no signs of the axle failures we endured at Adelaide, so everything is pointing towards a much more successful weekend.”

The Australian GT Championship is just one of the categories running on the Shannons Nationals program this weekend, and the merits of Supaloc Racing’s revolutionary Supashock Suspension will be on display in no less than four different cars across the various series.

In the GT Championship, Taplin’s Lamborghini will be equipped with Supashock dampers, as will Greg Crick’s Dodge Viper and Ash Samadi’s Mosler.

Kerry Bailey, driving his Supashock-suspended Aston Martin, won all three races in the opening round of the Australian Sports Sedan Championship at Mallala, and will look to extend his series lead at Phillip Island this weekend.
