Stratco Racing’s Rhys McNally will be looking to regain his front running form at this weekend’s third round of the Australian V8 Ute Racing Series at Hidden Valley Raceway in Darwin after a disappointing result at the last event at Barbagallo Raceway in May.
McNally suffered a string of setbacks at his home round, including a DNF that hampered his strong run in the Australian V8 Ute Racing Series season so far.
Although the West Australian is determined to return to the top with the support of his new team, Sieders Racing who he credits a lot of this season’s success so far too.
“It certainly wasn’t an ideal result for us at Barbagallo, we had some strong patches but got caught up in events that weren’t necessarily our fault that really affected our weekend.
“I have to put all of that behind me and work towards getting the Stratco Racing Holden V8 Ute back on the podium, I’ve worked really well with Sieders Racing this year and I look forward to continuing to improve our position during the year,” McNally said.
With a one kilometre straight headlining the 2.9km Hidden Valley circuit, it is one that tests the V8 Ute drivers to the extreme.
With the warm tropical weather conditions, combined with a track requiring heavy braking and tight corners, Rhys admits it is one of the bigger challenges for the year however he looks forward to getting on track for practice on Friday.
