New Team ‘LOCKED AND LOADED' have finally received their new Extreme 2wd Chev powered Mason Motor sport truck as a turnkey seasoned car enabling the crew to launch into season 2013 with the confidence they can challenge both track and podium positions straight ‘outa the box'.
Adam Flanagan, Team Owner said, "We wanted a package that we could afford to run out of W.A., keep the maintenance and repairs up and challenge any race anywhere in Australia. We don't have the budget to have a custom built car as yet, but we are pretty confident we will be racing and competitive at all rounds and some classic events."
Adam is no stranger to the sport and has come up through the off road ranks best nown for his high flying Performance 2wd Escort at the Hyden National Rounds. Adam has spent hours scouring the net, shopping local and in the US before settling on the ex-Brian Coombes Car. Many phone calls and a trip to the states in May 2012 with Ian French saw a wild weekend in Vegas and a few miles in the Desert.
Adam said, "On its first run, I was sold. It is compact, packing some serious torque and responsive - perfect for the rally sprint kind of tracks that make up our championship. We received the car last December with the help of Mal Yeardley from RACEGEAR W.A. We took it straight downto Frenchy's Farm and introduced it to a bit of Aussie Dust......and it loved it... Nearly as much as me."
The LOCKED AND LOADED team has some strong backers including ex-rally navigator
Byron Hehir, Ian French, Dan Rogers, Karen Flanagan and Tanya French. It shares the same stable as Glen Flanagan's long time performance 2wd campaigner and the NEW all girl Production 4wd Filthy Team headed up by Kath Flanagan and Kylee Mulcahy.
The team will challenge rounds of the WAORC and Round 1 of the AORC at HYDEN this
Easter to kick off their season. Follow their progress on FACE BOOK at Lockednloaded
