Off Road Racing - Rentsch On A Roll At AORC Round 3

Shannon and Ian Rentsch have locked away their third consecutive podium finish of the 2014 Australian Off Road Championship at the Toyo Tires Riverland Enduro held at Waikerie on the weekend. Piloting the #Aus1 Hogs Breath BF Goodrich Tires Jimco to second outright in a time of 3hr 29min 05.43sec, behind the race winners Jack Rhodes and David Pullino in the #91 Jimco.

Rentsch started the main race seeded into 15th after failing to finish Saturday’s prologue. Which saw him start next to the Tonka Trophy Truck of Beau Robinson in Sunday mornings two at a time drag race in to the first corner.

“In the prologue the car was misfiring, so we pulled up because we didn’t want to hurt it. It turned out to be an electrical problem, so that was sorted out on Saturday night and started from 15th today and we’re a little surprised to finish this far up the field. It was a great result for us and we’ve got some good points towards the championship.”

Despite being a long established event on the Australian Offroad calendar, this was Rentsch’s first time at the South Australian event. “The Waikerie track was great and we really enjoyed it, especially the last few laps when it dried out after the showers. It was extremely slippery this morning and visibility was tough, so it was a bit of a challenge.”

Rentsch quickly worked his way up the leaderboard, moving from 15th to 7th by the end of the first lap and was soon into podium contention as he battled with the Haby’s, Hanson and Schiller. “Once we caught up to everyone they pulled over which made it easy for us”

“This would be one of the quickest tracks we have raced on and very similar to Griffith and Mildura. It was a lot different to the last one we raced on and the big variety in terrain makes for a good championship.”

“This track is very hard on tyres, you need exceptional performance for the high speed sections and fast cornering on the station tracks and fenceline runs, then something tough enough to take the hits amongst the trees and rocks when it tightens up. The BF Goodrich Tires on our Jimco went great.”

“This was one of the biggest crowds we have seen all year too, we hope everyone enjoyed the racing.” Said Rentsch at the finishline With two seconds at Kalgoorlie and Waikerie under their belt and the outright win at the Tatts Finke Desert Race, SR Racing is looking forward to heading north to Coffs Harbour for the fourth round of the AORC, the Pedders Suspension Coffs Coast 400 on 12-14 September. Where the opportunity looms large to edge another step closer to sealing a seventh Australian Off Road Championship. Held in conjunction with the WRC round and Rally Australia, the event organisers are taking a completely fresh approach to the 2014 event and the team is looking forward to stretching the legs of the Hogs Breath BF Goodrich Tires Jimco at the new track.

SR Racing’s Shannon and Ian Rentsch are proudly supported by: Hogs Breath Café, BF Goodrich Tires, Fox Shocks, PWR, Albins, Motec, Hella, Peter Kittle Motor Company, Sims Metal Management, Dirtcomp, FST Suspension and Premium Paint Works.
Keep an eye out for the official AORC coverage on 7mate and Speed in the coming weeks.
