Hitting up the Big Island!

A couple of our regular racers are heading “overseas” this week and next to race in major interstate events.

Matt & Faye Hodgetts are off to Sydney where Matt will race his Team Associated RC8T in the Truggy class a the 2010 NSW GP Offroad Championships, hosted by the Liverpool club.  It’s Matt’s first major mainland race meeting, and he’s excited to go, compete and learn.  To follow Matt’s progress, here are the event links:

    Matt’s tilt at the NSW Champs starts tomorrow. Go get ’em Matt! I’ll post updates here in the comments over the weekend for those wanting to follow his progress.

    I’m all packed and head for Vic tomorrow for a week of work, with the Vic Champs starting late next week. I have a good mate coming down from Qld to be my mechanic and pit man for the weekend….loving that!

    After two rounds of qualifying, Matt is sitting 24th (out of about 60) and improving each run. If things go his way, he’s a chance of qualifying into semi finals….which would be awesome!

  9. Dave says:

    Fingers are sure crossed for him.
    One thing about Matt, he doesn’t crack under pressure!!!!

  10. scottg says:

    Matt ended up qualifying 36th, then finished third in the 8th final, setting him up for a run in the quarter final. He’s on track at 8am tomorrow morning. Go matt!
