The highly anticipated debut of the first MickleFab Trophy Truck off the production line is set for reality at this weekend’s running of the second round of the South Australian Off Road Championship, the Exact Mining Bentleys Cabin Park Flinders 400.

Mildura based off road racer Ivan Robertson took possession of his new drive earlier this week, and with 100 feet of test driving under his belt, he’s set to travel south to Baroota. “I’ve driven it on and off the trailer a couple of times, and that’s it. Baroota will be about getting the truck setup, and getting race miles on the clock” commented Robertson.

1313b_sm Robertson, who hasn’t sat behind the wheel of an off road racing machine for close on nine years, last competed in the ex Andrew Stott Safari Patrol Extreme 4WD. He has raced quad bikes during his sabbatical from off road racing.

Gavin Mickle of MickleFab will take on the navigating duties for the Baroota event, passing on his intimate knowledge of the Chev LS 6litre powered trophy truck as he goes.

“Gavin’s work is meticulous; his fabrication skills are second to none and everything has been done to the highest quality. The process from the drawing board to the track has been amazing” added Robertson. “I’m like a kid on Christmas day; I can’t wait to get behind the wheel.”

The MickleFab Trophy Truck had a visit to Sportzprint this morning for its new livery, with the stunning highly sheened black finish complimented by the Water Movers Australia imagery.

Robertson and the team plan on campaigning the four rounds of the Australian Off Road Championship, starting with the MBL Sea Lake Mallee Rally in June.
