  3. Following on from the BetEazy Darwin Triple Crown, Chaz Mostert and Tickford Racing team headed to Townsville. Introduced to the Supercars Championship calendar 10 years ago in 2009, the Townsville 400 is made up of two 200km races held on the Saturday and Sunday around the technical 2.85km long street circuit which comprises of 13 turns. The format has remained the same for the past 10 years with the exception of 2014 when it was the Townsville 500, made up of two 125km races on the Saturday and one 250km race on the Sunday. Having scored his 6th podium after 7 rounds, Chaz was feeling positive after good results at the end of the first half of the season and was looking forward to getting back to the Queensland track. “It’s always good to get to Townsville, it’s a fun track and a great event, so I’m looking forward to getting back in the Supercheap rocket and trying to chip away towards the pointy end. Darwin was pretty good to us, with the development we’ve had in the cars I think we’ve definitely made some gains, obviously we’ll continue with that track and hopefully have a positive weekend in the sunshine.” Friday’s sessions didn’t prove to be ideal for Mostert in the No. 55 Supercheap Auto Ford Mustang after he was only able to complete ten laps. Chaz sat out most of Practice 1 due to the wet conditions, but was then plagued by an electrical issue in the Mustang during Practice 2 which wasn’t fixed until late in the session. His day ended with 16th and 14th positions across the two sessions. Not a total loss, but disappointing having stood on the podium at the previous round. “I’m not gutted from the results, or where we are on the times sheets, I’m just gutted that we didn’t get the track running we probably wanted to today. We had some things that we really wanted to get a bit of an idea on, so this really put us on the back foot for this weekend. I’m not sure how we’ll roll out tomorrow, but we’ll just try to recover the best way we can. Obviously we’ve got some quick team mates, so that’s fantastic from a team point of view to try to rely on. We’ll look forward to tomorrow, onwards and upwards, and we’ll see how we go.” On Saturday Chaz hit the ground running and managed to put the No. 55 Supercheap Auto Ford Mustang on the front row of the grid with a qualifying time of 1m12.22s. This second place start was a huge boost for Chaz and after a long 200km race he managed to come in third, bringing his 47th career podium and 7th of the season “I’m super pumped to get a trophy here, I’ve been trying for a lot of years, and always seemed to come up short, so I got the monkey off my back. I’m a lot of years into my career, but this has always been the one to get away from us. For me, I had a pretty reasonable start, running a bit of a different, wild card, a bit like Jamie (Whincup) this weekend. (It probably has) better qualifying pace, but the race car we’ll have to make a little bit better. Overall, it seemed pretty quick, I just couldn’t quite hang onto these guys (Scott McLaughlin and Whincup) as much as I’d like to, and overall I pat the guys on the back. I think they’ve done a pretty good job with the mentality of going forward.” Sunday’s qualifying didn’t go quite as well as the day before for Chaz who dropped back 14 positions from his Saturday start. Chaz did manage to get a great race start in very tricky conditions with rain starting to sprinkle on the Townsville circuit which catapulted him into 9th place on the first lap. Sadly his fight to get back into podium contention wasn’t meant to be with an incorrect fuel delivery amount during a stop meaning he had to stop again in the closing stages in order to take 5th place legally. “A bit gutted to be honest. The car was really, really good in the slippery conditions, and there was some stuff we did at the start, even before the race started, and the weather just didn’t go our way. Obviously it was great to have a fast car, but that extra pit stop at the end hurt our finishing position. A bit gutted, P5, most people would kill for that result, but when you feel you can get a trophy and maybe even on that top step, it hurts that it eluded us today.” With two solid race results, Chaz moves into 4th place in the 2019 Virgin Australia Supercars Championship with only a 29 point deficit on SGV and a 6 point lead over David Reynolds who sits in 5th. Racing continues July 26-28 at the Century Batteries Ipswitch SuperSprint.

  5. Hey Greg, I wont hold you to this, but figure you may have spoken to experts about this. Any idea how much the additional parts and labour would be roughly for the 5MT conversion? Thanks, Brett

  7. 1. Shad’s 1974 Mazda RX-4 One of the first cars I heard, saw and smelt upon arriving at Rolling30. It’s not often that you have the pleasure of seeing a street driven Luce Rotary; most are reserved for the drag-strip alongside the RX-2s & RX-3s. Shad was able to find his RX-4 about 5 years ago from south of the border, down Victoria way, already sporting a few mods with a Cosmo 13B Turbo engine and a Series 5 RX7 gearbox. Wanting to stand apart from the crowds, he went to PAC to help him build the car into a tough, reliable street car. PAC Performance definitely built this car tough with a 13B bridge ported motor from a series 8 RX-7 with a tasty GT51R Turbo hanging off the side coupled with a Turbosmart EBoost 2 & Blow Off Valve. Underneath the car you’ll find a C4 Auto gearbox, 9” Truetrac LSD and 15” RC Components Fusion Street Fighter Wheels; customized by PAC Performance. This RX4 is now making 600HP thanks to a Microtech LT16C ECU and a custom PAC fuel tank housing triple pumps to push that sweet E85 through. Of course, being a PAC car, it has taken a trip down the drag strip and joined the 9 second club running 9.7sec at 139 mph. The final thing Shad is looking to do is finish off the interior of the car, which currently houses a full roll cage as the main modification. 2. Mark’s 1973 Volkswagen Karmann Ghia The Volkswagen Karmann Ghia is definitely an interesting sports car and Mark’s is a fine example of the 2+2 coupe. Built in Germany from 1955 to 1974, there were just over 445,000 cars produced, combining the chassis & mechanicals of a Type 1 Volkswagen Beetle with styling from Italy’s Carrozzeria Ghia and hand-build bodywork by Germany’s Wilhelm Karmann GmbH. Mark purchased the car in 2008 and spent the next 5 years rebuilding the car from the ground up in his garage with the help of friends and family, including a full respray. The 1916 Type 1 VW Engine was rebuilt in October 2018 by WPVW to make 125HP at the wheels, with plenty of goodies from CB Performance including match-ported manifolds, wedgeport heads and 5.5 journal rods. The car is also running 40mm IDF Webers with 34mm venturis. Rolling around on 16” x 6” Porsche Fuch rims, Mark enjoys getting out and touring the car around NSW & Victoria. 3. Jared’s 1966 Austin-Healey Sprite MK III The Austin-Healey Sprite is a small open sports car designed as a low-cost model that “a chap could keep in his bike shed”. The cars have quite a successful race-pedigree, placing 12th at Le Mans in 1965, and several class wins at Sebring with Stirling Moss, Bruce McLaren & Steve McQueen behind the wheel. Interestingly, the Sprites were imported into Australia as a completely knocked down kit and assembled in Enfield, NSW. Jared’s Sprite, however, came from New Zealand, where it had done some classic Targa rallying. The factory 1.1L A-Series I4 engine, making a grand total of 59 HP, had already be ditched for the Toyota 4AGE engine, but the work was not up to Australian standards, so Jared spent a couple of years rebuilding the car with his brother Josh to get it to where it is today. The new 4AGE Big Port Engine is from an AE86, it’s had the EFI removed and converted to twin 40mm Dellorto side draft carby, to keep it somewhat period correct. The pistons, heads, camshafts & cam gears have all been upgraded to make 138HP at the rear wheels, but there’s still a bit more in the engine before Jared is happy with it. Underneath the car you’ll find a set of 13”x 6” Superlite rims, 2 piece full floating 4340 Billet Axles (with a lifetime guarantee), and a 3.7:1 LSD. The power is put to the ground through an AE86 T50 5 speed box with an Exedy heavy duty clutch and ultralight flywheel, and seeing as the car only weighs 695kg, it would definitely be a fun drive, especially through the twisties. Jared has a few more plans for the car, including a roll cage and some interior mods to go with the power plans. 4. Brett’s 1978 Mitsubishi Lancer A70 There are plenty of lancers on the road under different marketing badges around the world: Colt, Dodge, Plymouth, Chrysler Valiant, Hindustan. There’s been plenty of evolutions of the model, 9 in fact, so you’d be forgiven if you were to mistake Brett’s car for something else. The car started out new in the family where Brett’s father sold it at Pember’s Chrysler, but then had it traded back in 1984 for a Mitsubishi Sigma. It was given to Brett as his first car, and has been slowly modified over time, first as a daily driver and then to a super sprint car starting at Oran Park in 1987. The car now sees the track at Wakefield on a semi-regular basis where Brett’s son races it predominately. The original engine has been replaced with a Mitsubishi 2.4 Sirius 4G64 engine with dual 45mm Weber carbys, 12:1 compression forged pistons, a ported head and mild camshafts to make 180 HP with plenty of torque. The car has also borrowed several parts from a Sigma including the gearbox, a 4.9:1 LSD from a MK I Cortina and the brakes from a Scorpion. The 14” x 7” Performance Superlite wheels with Nitto Semi-Slicks keep the car firmly on the racetrack! 5. 1992 Ferrari 512 TR “TestaRossa” Despite being outside of the 30 year limit for Rolling30, this gorgeous Ferrari 512 TR in Giallo Modena came by with the hopes of getting out on track to give the crowds the aural pleasure of the 4.9 liter rear-mounted flat 12 at full song. The car was also up for sale, and I’m sure plenty of people would love to have this beauty in their garages after years of it sitting on their walls growing up. This example finished in Ferrari Nero Stellato yellow with original 5 spoke alloy wheels is a complete concourse car with no modifications. There is not a lot to say but wow! 6. 1972 Ford Falcon XA GT-HO Phase IV A piece of ‘almost’ racing history was out on track at Rolling30 – 2 of 4 XA GT-HO Phase IV sedans ever produced. The production of the car, for homologation to the Group E Series Production Touring Car series aiming for the 1972 Hardie-Ferodo race at Bathurst, was cut short when on the 25th June 1972 the Sun-Herald published an article entitled “160MPH ‘Super Cars’ Soon” sparked the New South Wales Minister for Transport, Milton Morris, to call for a ban on the supercars three days later. On the fourth day the Confederation of Australian Motor Sport (CAMS) announced the end of the Group E regulations, replacing them with Group C regulations which allowed modified versions of road cars to compete, and thus removing the need for manufacturers to develop road-going race vehicles. Ford officially ceased production on Sunday 2nd July after one car had been produced, with three others in various stages of construction at Ford Special Vehicles; their internal race division. Hand built seam-welded and a blueprinted engine producing almost 400HP. This intact factory race car with under 5000 miles is one of the only three manufactured by Ford Special Vehicles for Allan Moffat & Fred Gibson. 7. Aaron’s 1951 Chevy 3100 Pickup ‘Memphis Hell’ Aaron’s 51 Chev is definitely a head turner, guaranteed to attract attention anywhere it goes, and when your business is building cars like it for a living, that’s a unique business card to hold. Aaron was lucky to purchase the car for $1,500, but has invested plenty into it since then, both time and resources. The roof has been chopped, doors and bonnet shaved, engine bay built and there’s plenty of work done in the rear tub too. Underneath the car you’ll find a Holden Rodeo chassis & floor pan, keeping it in the GM family, with a 5L v8 engine and t56 6 speed manual box. The car sits millimeters off the ground thanks to the 4 link, air bagged suspension on the notched chassis and a set of staggered Simmons OM rims – 17”x10” on the front and 18”x12” in the rear. Over the last 10 years the car has constantly evolved; starting out as an LPG at Ocean Grove in Victoria when he started building it with his dad, moving to Carby petrol, and now injected. The retro race style is Aaron’s latest, and who know where it will go next. 8. Jason’s 1982 Holden VH Commodore – Brock HDT Race Tribute Jason had a couple of Commodores at Rolling 30, but this VH took our eye with the HDT Brock/Perkins livery of the winning car from the 1982 James Hardie 1000. The 308 under the hood with a cold air intake is all you need to make 215kW at the HDT 20” Aero wheels. Jason was super busy running his cars on the day so we settled on grabbing some detailed snaps of the car and listening to that tough 308 open up around the GP circuit.

  8. Coming into a very hot Darwin race weekend Chaz was keen to improve on his 6th place standing in the 2019 Virgin Australia Supercars Championship. This round was held at Hidden Valley in the Northern Territory and the track is known for its high speeds and fast lap times. It’s a 2.87 kilometre 14 corner technical circuit with sweeping bends and a long 1.1 kilometre main straight. So lots of opportunity for passing and also drama which the Darwin round never fails to deliver! The Tickford team opened the weekend with a series of strong practice sessions with Chaz posting the fastest time in Practice 1 and then going P4 in Practice 2 with a 1m06.33s. The qualifying session went mostly to plan with the No. 55 posting a 1m06.32s and lining up 6th on the grid. Tickford went into race 15 with an aggressive pit strategy that gave Chaz Mostert the track position to notch his sixth podium of 2019 and a second-place finish in the first race of the Darwin Triple Crown. Chaz gave us his thoughts on Race 15 “We were very lucky there at the end. It’s been – I was saying – probably two, three years since we’ve had the ability to do an aggressive strategy and come home probably a bit sadder on tyres than some others, but every day you get a trophy from doing it is a good strategy call, so credit to Adam (De Borre, engineer). He stuck to his guns, had a crack, and the trophy was a team effort today. The boys were really quick in the pit stops, no fumbling around, and I just tried to hold onto the tyres, but the temperature up here is really hard. The end of the race was pretty interesting for us, I was looking in the mirror, I saw Davey Reynolds – he’s a pretty hard charger – he was coming for me, and then there was, you know, more fresh tyres behind him, coming and coming. I was probably lucky that Scotty McLaughlin kind of buggered off down the road a little bit and gave me a bit of clean air to just focus on looking after the tyres, and P2 is all we had today.” Race 16 qualifying started well with Chaz posting the 3rd fastest time, only to drop to 8th in the Top 10 shootout with a 1m06.22s. Chaz lamented prior to the race start “ We dropped a bit in the last sector and finished P8 in the shootout, but on the plus side I think we have a good race car and I’m ready to race” Moving into the race and starting 8th on the grid the No.55 managed to have a clean start and move up two positions after a late strategy call for new tyres which enabled him to jump his team mates Will Davidson and Lee Holdsworth. Looking back on the race with Chaz “We just stuck to our strategy. The top four was probably the best result we could get, but just ran out of puff there at the end to get back to there. It is what it is, P6 is a good bank of points, just not where we want to be. We still have some work to do, obviously, and we’ll keep fighting.” Team principal Tim Edwards gave us his thoughts on the weekend: “All told that’s a really good weekend for us. Our car speed was very good and for the most part we executed very well. The only difference right now is while our cars are very good a couple of cars – one car in particular – are doing great. We’re really happy with the results, and right now we’ve got four cars in the top ten of the championship, which is incredibly hard to do in any championship. We’ve got to recognise that, but at the same time we’re racers, and we want more than fourth place, so we have to keep working.” Next up is the Watpac Townsville 400 in the Far North of Queensland on July 5th -7th. Which means a lot of miles for the team back home in Melbourne to prepare the car before the long drive to Townsville in 3 weeks’ time. Stay tuned to see how Chaz and the No.55 Supercheap Auto Racing Mustang supported by Bendix goes on the streets of Townsville! Follow Bendix Brakes on Facebook HERE.
