TVR – Australian Championship – 6/7/8th March 2014

Borderline Speedway, Mount Gambier – South Australia


As the rain came down days prior to and during Saturday it was looking like we might not even get a race in at Bunbury Speedway for the 5th Round of the Hoosier
It is that time of year when the TVR #8 crew start to focus on the most prestigious event on the calendar for the season and the race everyone wants to win so they
can be crowned Australia #1 for the next 12 months.

The season to date has been one of Craig’s best ever powering the #8 Worldwide Machinery Valvoline Rocket to six feature wins and another 5 top finishes after only
14 races. So it seems there would be no better time for the in-form driver of the TVR #8 to head east and tackle the best drivers in the country.

The Australia #1 crown has always eluded Craig with his 2013 runner up finish behind USA’s “Kentucky Colonel” Steve Francis being his best result.
It is a long haul from Perth, Western Australia across the Nullarbor Plain & Great Australian Bight with it being a 6250km (3900 mile) round trip but Craig and the TVR
team are hoping this time it may just all be worth it.

It has been a busy week in the TVR workshop coming off a race last weekend, freshening up the #8 Rocket and getting the TVR transporter all ready for the big trip
but we are on track and looking forward to hitting the Mount Gambier Bullring next Thursday for practice.

Craig, Nicola and the TVR mascot “JET” will get to drive the rig across to South Australia whilst the TVR support crew of Brent, Baz, Woody, Brooke, Mitch and Big Bad Bert get to fly straight in.

The TVR Team are as prepared as they always are and are confident of a good result, so “Lets get the Show on the Road”

We will be updating result from both Night #1 & #1 via the TVR Facebook page if you wish to follow our progress.
