After finishing the 2012 off road racing season third on the Australian Off Road Championship leader board amongst a quality field of Australian off road racer, Gerald Reid and the Springwood Car Care team have set the bar high for their 2013 campaign.

“We’re aiming to at least defend our #3, but to go one or two better and finish at the top, would be a dream come true” Reid said when asked about his aspirations for the coming season.

1767c_sm The Springwood Car Care team have ticked all the boxes with their preparation for their first run of the season at the Komatsu-Brooks Hire Hyden 450 and, along with announcing the signing of a new team partner for the 2013 season, the Springwood Car Care team are ready to go racing.

Reid went on to explain “Gulf Western Oil have joined us as our major partner for this season. We’re extremely pleased to have such a reputable company on board as we take on the 2013 Australian Off Road Championship.”

The new Springwood Car Care Gulf Western Oil livery has been designed and in the process of being applied to the #3 Later Engineering Pro buggy which is going through its final preparation before heading west across the Nullarbor to Hyden in the south east of Western Australia.

Taking on the navigating duties for the Easter weekend will be long time off road campaigner Werner Zettle, more at home in the driver’s seat of his own Super1650 class off road machine, but also a highly regarded navigator.

1767b_sm “The plan is to take each AORC event as it comes. All the AORC rounds offer up different challenges, but with the team providing impeccable preparation beforehand, once we get to the track, it is then up to me, and that is all anyone can ask of their team.”

The 2013 Australian Off Road Championship gets under on Good Friday at Hyden in the Western Australian wheat belt.
