    Snake Racing goes Pink for Trophy Kart Celebrity Challenge – Kristy Hedley 

    The Trophy Kart Celebrity Challenge was run over the weekend at Loveday 4×4 Park in SA. The invited drivers from Off Road Championship events had a great time showcasing their skills and with all karts heavily sponsored the money raised went to the children’s cancer charity Canteen.

    Kristy Hedley whom usually races in the NSW Off Road Championship was the only female who competed and placed a fantastic 4th place showing the boys how it’s done. Kristy’s trophy Kart was sponsored by Snake Racing and Snake went Pink for this event. Just goes to show Snake Racing isn’t just for the males out there and its good to see the girls are getting in to the sport.

    1st place went to Danny Auricht, 2nd to Wally Francombe and 3rd Joe Orr. Congratulations to all.

    Kristy has had a very successful last few years and was rewarded for her efforts with the 2012 / 2013 Junior Development Scholarship from The CAMS Women in Motorsport committee.

    Snake Racing wishes to congratulate Kristy for her fantastic effort.

    A bittersweet weekend at NSW ORC Crookwell 

    The boys suffered a bit of a battering at Round 2 of the NSW ORC at Crookwell on the weekend but still managed to finish 2nd in class which was a good result considering the conditions that they faced.

    The weather served up a mixed bag with very cold temperatures on Friday and Saturday,  drizzling sleet on Saturday and an outstanding day of sunshine on Sunday. There was a bit of everything.

    Snake Racing driver and navigator Wayne and Chris loved the track, they said it was brilliant, full of all types of terrain with sharp bends, open paddocks, hills and gullies. They dodged a Blue Tongue and Echidna along the way which made for some interesting driving.

    After a successful day on Saturday with some great times it just wasn’t to be on Sunday morning. During heat 4 the boys suffered yet more damage to the Polaris XP 900 with 2 broken factory upper and lower right hand side ball joints which then intern damaged the steering rack and rack end, axle, caliper and break lines. All parts were replaced with new ones accept the brake caliper. This was yet another hit to the hip pocket. This incident saw Wayne and Chris struggle to stay in the game as they  did not finish that heat. After Wayne made a mad dash back to the pits on foot to crab the replacement parts Chris and himself did a great job getting the Polaris back together and back on its way for the final heat of the day which consisted of 10 laps.

    Out of 12 vehicles that were left to compete in the final heat only 4 managed to make it home to the finish. Luckily Wayne was one of them. The heat really took its toll on everyone with minor injuries and body fatigue but there was some great racing with the vehicles battling right to the end.

    As above Wayne’s times  were very impressive however they were not enough to keep him on track for another 1st place on the podium in class or a podium finish outright. 2nd in class was a good result but it knocked us back down the ladder in the outright stakes.  Lets hope round 3 sees them make a comeback and hopefully the Polaris won’t suffer any issues at the next event.

    Congratulations to Michael Smith for taking 1st in the UTV class and Justin Guy for 1st outright at Crookwell.

    Round 3, Wittitrin 300 will be held at Kempsey on 25th and 26th May.

    NSW Off Road Championship Round 2 Crookwell on track. 

    This weekend sees the second round of the NSW Off Road Championship and Snake Racing will be back for more of what they gave out in Round 1. After placing 2nd outright and 1st in class driver Wayne Murphy is all geared up to keep the momentum going with the hope of another podium finish.

    After significant repairs and replacements to the rear control arms, ball joints and control arm radius rods after round 1 the Polaris XP 900 is back in it’s best form for this weekend. The continuous damage after each rally is starting to get a little frustrating but the boys are pushing through.

    Round 2 is held at Storriers Gravel Pit on Grabben Gullen Road Crookwell.

    Make sure you check out our Facebook page after the event to see if you made the glossy photo pages. Tag yourself and your friends and share the event around.

    Good luck Wayne and Chris.

    Ian Paltridge takes home 2nd at Cooper Rally Qld 

    For his first time behind the wheel of his Snake Polaris XP900 and his first drive in 4 years, Ian Paltridge had the adrenalin pumping to bring home 1st in class and 2nd outright at the Cooper Rally held at Landcruiser Mountain Park Qld a couple of weeks ago.

    As a recent member added to the Snake Racing Rally Team Ian and his first timer navigator Khy Walsh have really set the pace for themselves at this event.

    The Cooper Rally has been running for several years and mainly consists of vehicles from Class 7, 8 and Modified Outlaw Vehicles. Approx 30 vehicles took part in the event.  Ian just happen to win the last  series he competed in in 2009. The competitive side of him certainly hasn’t died down.

    As Ian didn’t have any time for testing it really was a first for everything and we wish him well in his next event. Ian will be competing in the 4th round of the Qld Off Road Driver Series in Gympie 25th May.

    Keep an eye on Ian’s progress via the Snake Racing webpage.
