The third round of the Australian Rally Championship kickedoff for Smart and Allen with testing today in the Mt. Crawford Forest in theBarossa Valley South Australia. Currently leading the Bosch Australian RallyChampionship, Smart is looking to continue his consistent trouble free run.
“I know this rally is fast, so with our ‘less-restricted’Corolla we’ll have to keep an eye in the rear-view mirror for Mark Pedder.”Smart said today at the test stage.
“The key to this rally will be consistency and tyre choice.We tested a few tyres today and found the Kuhmo 800’s worked really well,especially in the sunshine we had today. I reckon the Corolla will do 0-100 in3.1 seconds now especially with our Elf fuel” Ryan laughed.
This weekend Smart Motorsport are joined by a new partner andfuel supplier with Elf Racing Fuel, joining other sponsors V-Sport Australia,Ferodo Brake Pads, Speedie Contractors and Yandina Automotive.
“We’ve got new Sabelt racing suits from our sponsor V-SportAustralia for this weekend, they feel and look awesome. It’s great to have asuit that fits me properly and looks professional coming into this round” RyanSaid.
“I guess there is a lot of hype going around coming intothis round, and after talking to Simon Evans through the week. I’m just going to keep it real and drive myown event, there’s still a long way to the podium at Rally Victoria.”
