    Ian Paltridge – Queensland Off Road Drivers Series Round 3 

    Written by Ian Paltridge

    The ‘On Track 4WD Centre 200’ proved to be by far the most eventful race we had yet attended. Arriving Saturday morning we were quick to unload and hit the track for reconnaissance, the course made it obvious very early on that it was going to be a hard, tough and rough 14.5 km’s to drive fast and consistently.

    The first heat commenced early that afternoon, despite the less then desirable track conditions we finished in good time putting us among the top three. Pumped after such a good drive we quickly checked over the car and lined up third from the start line for round two.

    No more than 1 km into the course things quickly went downhill with suspected rock smashing a wheel, hub and brake calliper. This then lead to the collapse of the rear navigator’s side wheel bearing (should have stopped when the brakes went). Due to limited braking the car coped nothing but more damage until finally coming to a rest track side.

    Come Sunday morning we were again… lined up and ready to race. Having driven home and spent the majority of Saturday night rebuilding the back end of the Polaris we considered the weekend far from over. Our next two laps proved that, with our times being equal to those holding outright places.

    Second last heat of the event and disaster struck again, an almost identical repeat of yesterday’s incident. With no remaining spares that was unfortunately us out.

    The weekend was however anything but a waste of time with so many new things learnt about the performance and capabilities of the Polaris. With repairs and upgrades almost complete we will be ready for the ARB Goondiwindi 400 in August!

    Ian Paltridge – Queensland Off Road Championship Round 2 

    After the 11 hour drive we made it to Retreat Station on Friday afternoon just in time for reconnaissance. Up to that point we had absolutely no idea what we were in for, considering it took no less than an hour to complete the track in the Landcruiser we knew that to repeat this 35km course 6 times over was going to be no small task.

    A short walk through the pits Saturday morning revealed the main competition, 6 other Polaris XP900’s.  To race against vehicles of the same class on such a track was going to be unreal!

    Completing prologue in good time we started the first round in 5th place. The main track consisted of everything from huge tabletops to massive hill climbs, tight heavily timbered sections to high speed flats with no structure at all.  We slid over the finish line with a good time and most importantly no damage.

    The next five laps proved to be just as hard and physically draining as the first. Consistently improving our times we managed to complete the entire 210km’s.

    Although we took out the fastest single lap in class, come presentations we honestly didn’t know what to expect as by Sunday our main goal was to simply finish.

    When we were presented with second in class it came as quite a surprise. Being narrowly beaten by the land owner Chris Moohin in his Polaris and only one place off third outright the weekend was considered a major success!

    Final inspection of the car after the final lap revealed a broken sway bar and a broken top control arm bolt. How this stayed in we have no idea as I pulled it out with my fingers.

    We went to this event to get more drive time and to compete against a large field of Polarises and we came away a with a great result and a lot more experience.
