2014 Australian GT Championship Rnd 3

Preparation is in full swing for Round 3 of the Australian GT Championship to be held at Townsville in conjunction with the V8 Supercars on July 4th-6th. The track which is a mix of road and street stylings is sure to suit the Audi R8 LMS cars which are prepared in house here at Melbourne Performance Centre.

The Schedule for the weekend is as follows – Friday 2 x practice sessions, 8am and 11:05am and 1 x 20 min qualifying at 2:45pm. Race 1 (40 minute race) Saturday 11:40am, Races 2 and 3 (40 minute races) 8:35am and 2:10pm.

Entering under the MPC banner is the #71 Equity-One backed Audi R8 of Dean Koutsoumidis and James Winslow who currently sit equal 3rd in the drivers standings after the first 2 rounds. And the #6 Skwirk Online Audi R8 of Rod Salmon who currently leads the drivers standings will be co-driven once again by Nathan Antunes. Sitting in 4th Spot in the drivers standings is Steven McLaughlan who will once again pilot his #75 Jamec Pem Audi R8 on his own. And rounding out the MPC team will be Ockert Fourie and John Magro in the #72 OLOF family & Cosmetic Audi R8, although only relatively new comers to the Australian GT Championship Fourie and Magro showed great pace at Philip Island and hope to better that at Townsville.

Lowndes to take on AUST GT Field

The Audi R8 that Lowndes will drive at Phillip Island
Team Vodafone V8 Supercars star Craig Lowndes will return to the wheel of an Audi R8 LMS when the Australian GT Championship heads to Phillip Island in late September.

The 38-year-old has competed with Audi’s factory effort at the last two Bathurst 12 Hour races, but is yet to race in the GT Championship.

He will drive one of five Melbourne Performance Centre-prepared R8s at the Shannons Nationals event.

“I am very pleased to be stepping back aboard an Audi R8 LMS again, and particularly at a track like Phillip Island,” said Lowndes.

“I’ve enjoyed my two outings with the factory Audi team at Bathurst in the 12-Hour but have yet to win in the car, so hopefully Phillip Island will give me the chance.

“The guys at Melbourne Performance Centre have been involved with the factory cars all the way, so I expect we will be very competitive again. I am looking forward to it.”

Lowndes’ entry utilises one of the two cars left in the country following this year’s Phoenix Racing Bathurst assault, and will run in the same One World Bar livery that proprietor Rod Salmon has competed with this season.

While the deal is a one-off, MPC owner Troy Russell has expressed his desire to see Lowndes join the team for a full campaign next year.

“Our aim is for this to be an ongoing program,” said Russell.

“Craig obviously has V8 Supercar commitments, and we’re thankful to Triple Eight for releasing him for the Phillip Island weekend, but … for us this is just the start. We’d like to have a professional driver in the car alongside our current team at every round in 2013.”

MPC is the Australian agent for Audi’s global customer GT program, and is likely to spearhead the marque’s attack on the 2013 Bathurst 12 Hour in the expected absence of an international Audi presence.

McLaughlin & Webb win Taupo’s 400

Two pole positions, a second place in Race 1 and a win in Race 2 was more than enough for up and coming superstar Scott McLaughlin to win again in V8 SuperTourers.

Teamed up with talented V8 Supercar driver Jono Webb, the duo translated their superb qualifying pace – where they locked out pole position for both races with first and second fastest times from qualifying – into a second place in Race 1 and a Race 2 win.

This matched the performance of the Mike Pero Mortgages M3 Racing duo of Nick Cassidy and Jack Perkins, but two pole positions were enough to give McLaughlin and Webb the memorial Ashley Stichbury Trophy – which they received from the late ace’s son Zach in front of the biggest crowd seen at a circuit racing event seen at the Taupo circuit since the days of A1GP.

Their driver changes – compulsory in the two 56 lap races – were amongst the quickest but they were hampered in Race 1 with a tyre-hungry car. Some small adjustments to the set up gave them more consistency in Race 2 and they made the most of it, winning and taking the lead in the V8 SuperTourers enduro series.

They didn’t have it all their own way though. Series debutants Cassidy and Perkins put in a mega quick driver changeover on Race 1 and jumped the McLaughlin and Webb car to take a lead they would not lose, and in Race 2 after some early contact that damaged the passenger side of the car, they had no real answer to the flying McLaughlin and Webb but had the measure of the rest.

Championship leader John McIntyre and new co-driver Jono Lester translated a poor qualifying performance on Saturday into two excellent third place finishes – McIntyre’s trademark press on style getting him past the Richard Moore/ Owen Kelly car late on in the second race.

Fourth was a great result for the Skinny Mobile-backed car after two consistent performances and capped a good day for M3 Racing. Craig Baird and Chris Pither were factors in both races and were in the thick of two fantastic mid-field battles in each. Fifth was no more than they deserved after a strong weekend. Strong too was JMR’s second CRC Motornews car of Steve Richards and Will Bamber, which turned great pace in Race 2 into sixth overall.

For championship contenders International Motorsport it was a difficult weekend. In Race 1, Jonny Reid and Wade Cunningham ran out of fuel on the last lap and in the second race, got faster and faster to take sixth at the flag and seventh overall for the round, taking more valuable points. Ant Pedersen and Matt Halliday endured an even tougher time. Halliday was spun in Race 1 and that cost the crew two laps and any chance of success. In Race 2 they finished eighth for 13th overall.

Tasman’s Daniel Gaunt and Andrew Waite – in only the team’s second SuperTourer event – were right on the pace, and in Race 2 were at the sharp end for the first part of the race. Eighth overall was a good result, but the team would perhaps have hoped for a bit more after showing real speed.

Ninth overall were Andy Booth and Tony D’Alberto and this was another team that would leave Taupo a little disappointed after both drivers showed good qualifying pace and consistency. They never quite recovered from a D’Alberto drive through penalty in Race 1, however.

Rounding out the top ten were Colin Corkery and Jeroen Bleekemolen finished a solid tenth, the best performance for the Elf/Koba Batteries car in the series so far and a nice reward for team Racing Projects after the mammoth car rebuild following Corkery’s Manfeild shunt.

VW Golf GTI/R modfications

The VW Golf Mk5 and Mk6 Golfs are a wolf in sheep’s clothing.

 

 

Best gains come from a remap of the ECU with gains starting from 35BHP and 65NM of torque. We are able to remap the below and more.

Golf Mk3 GTI and VR6

Golf MK4 GTI

Golf MK5 GTI, GTD, Edition 30

Golf MK6 GTI, GTD, Edition 35

 

To increase the turbo spool we then install a Milltek turbo back exhaust with a high flow catalytic converter(to keepit legal) and a Forge Motorsport TwinTake air induction kit.
