The Aussies are coming!

The Aussies are coming!  Steve Glenney and Marcus Walkem will be making the trip from Australia to compete in the Teng Tools NZ International Rallycross on February 27th 2016 at Baypark Stadium, Mount Maunganui.

Steve Glenney drove TECH///SPORT’s stunning new Evo 8MR Rallycross vehicle to a resounding success at the inaugural EXTREME RALLYCROSS event held on 5th September 2015. This first Australian Rallycross event was held at the Lakeside circuit near Brisbane, and consisted of both Tarmac and Gravel surfaces, together with a huge Jump!

Capably driven by Steve, TECH///SPORT’s purpose-built Mitsubishi Evo 8MR forged a fierce battle with Scotland’s Alister McRea during the five Heats, then in the exciting 10 lap Final, with victory going to the Evo driver. McRea was driving an Olsbergs Super Lite Rallycross Special, which ran a normally aspirated 2.4 Duratec engine, and 4WD Transmission.

Also joining Steve at The Teng Tools NZ International Rallycross will be  Marcus Walkem who scored an outstanding victory in their Mitsubishi Evo IX  in the local 4WD Turbo category in 2015  RALLY AUSTRALIA.  Held on Shire and Forestry roads in the Coffs Harbour region , Marcus (with brother Scott) drove their  TECH///SPORT prepared  Evo IX Rally Car against the best Australian 4wd teams in the country , to lead the Championship.
