Hard work pays off as Tunehouse cars triumph at WTAC

“It’s been a long time coming but we finally managed to get a podium in one of the biggest events on the Australian racing calendar – World Time Attack Challenge!”
Jim Ghelis.


David Lord, driving the Tunehouse tuned and prepared Subaru STi (below) whipped up an amazing 1:40.60 second lap in the final shootout, good enough for the 2nd spot and only 0.6 second behind the class winner.


David’s was the only Subaru on the Clubsprint podium, driving a wedge between two class favourites, Dan Farquar and Jason Naidoo.


“It feels great to add a WTAC trophy to our list,” said Jim Ghelis, “the team worked very hard to get all the cars prepared for the event and this trophy is a just www.mindanews.com/buy-lipitor/ reward for all their efforts.”


The THR-86 continued its dominance, with Josh Muggleton behind the wheel. With a lap time of just 1:42.85 it was the fastest 86/BRZ at the event.

With some aero mods and improvements in the suspension and braking department, THR-86 cemented its position as Australia’s fastest 86/BRZ.


Nathan Halstead shaved more than a second off his best 2013 time with a 1:44.46 lap time.


Another Tunehouse tuned and prepared car, the Biltstein S14 bettered its 2013 best in the Open class with Nathan Antunes setting a new PB with a 1:35.04 lap time.
