Hard Weekend for Hardie Racing
Thursday, 10 April 2014
Hardie Racing overcame the odds and showed that perseverance pays dividends at the first round of the ARB Off Road Racing Series, the ARB Paringa Desert 400, held in the rugged picturesque outback of Broken Hill.

2410b_sm The son and father team had an eventful weekend, and as Gary explains, it started with reconnaissance.

“The fun started when we returned from reconnaissance. We found fuel pouring out from under the car from a crack in the fuel tank. So it was all hands on deck to strip the car get the tank out. After a run around the pits looking for a welder, we found one at the Rhodes camp. We welded the tank and got it back into the car just in time make the start line for prologue.”

2410c_sm After the drama preceding their prologue, the crew put it all aside and pulled a 20th outright out of the box for their prologue. Their good fortune continued with a steady first lap and an 18th outright at the overnight break.

Gary continued “Sunday saw us head out for the first two of the four laps. We were running well until we lost the clutch at about the 50km mark on the second lap, driving the rest of the lap into the service break in third gear.”

“During the break with adjusted the clutch as much as we could and headed out for the final two laps. We made it back to the 50km mark and pulled over to let a car go past, and then we went to take off, but had no clutch, so we sat there and waited for a push. When we got going again, we didn’t won’t to risk stoping again, so we drove the rest of the race in third gear. We stopped again at the 70km mark and we thought it was all over, until a recovery quad bike turned up and gave us a tow start and we were on our way again.”

2410d_sm “We were certainly glad to see that checkered flag! After all that, we got home eighth in class and 18th overall; we think a pretty good effort considered there was 27 Pro buggies entered for the weekend.”

“Dad and I would like to thank our pit crew and the Rhodes team. If it wasn’t for them, we would have been loaded up and heading home after the reconnaissance. I’d like to say a huge thanks to Dad; if it wasn’t for him I wouldn’t be racing.”

Gary, Brian and the team at Hardie Racing will now repair the Southern Cross Mk 6 and regroup as they prepare for the next event in their 2014 off road racing campaign.
