Towers Racing trekked to Griffith last weekend for Round 2 of the New South Wales Off Road Championship and Round 1 of the ARB Off Road Racing Series, and it wasn’t as smooth sailing as Colo Park. After a good look at the track in reconnaissance, Glen and navigator Matthew Ross were preparing themselves for a full on assault of the 18km prologue track, knowing a high finish would minimise the dust.

With perfect racing conditions on point after a cold, dusty Friday night at scrutineering, prologue went well. The new Mickey Thompson MTZ P3's tyres were a little over inflated during the prologue run, so the car was sliding a lot. Towers hit a couple of banks and experienced a few moments where they thought the car was going over, however the Brenthel machine crossed the line in a respectable sixth outright, perfectly positioned for the commencement of lap 1.

After a promising opening to the weekend, Glen and Matthew rolled up to the start line for their launch until trouble struck. It was soon identified that the dust lights of the #80 beast were not working, therefore forcing the boys to exit the buggy and quickly hard wire them in, after approximately 17 minutes Towers was off – a frustrating start! Fortunately the boys made it home in one piece after an adventurous 100km lap finishing around mid pack and biting at the bit to commence day 2.

The buzz at Stackpoole on a cool Sunday morning was intense as around 40 crews lined up for three-100km laps, what was to unfold was anyone’s guess! Unfortunately, after a fluent beginning to the first lap, a broken pulley on the power steering pump at the 80km mark ended their event.

Glenn commented on his disappointing campaign post race; "Griffith turned out to be a bittersweet weekend all in all. While the weekend didn't turn out as planned the car performed really well when it was on track. Our new Mickey Thompson MTZ P3's held up better than expected, especially through the rocky stuff where we didn't back off at all and we can't wait to get back on track at the Sunraysia 600 in a couple of weeks".

Towers Racing would like to thank their race sponsors for 2016, Mickey Thomson Tyres, Brenthel Industries, Towers Bulk Haulage, King Shocks and Fortin Racing Inc.
