Our 2017 rally campaign finally got underway on Sunday last at the Midland Motor Club Moto Stages Rally in Longford. This was the second round of the Triton National Rally Championship series.
During the winter we decided it was time to get a 6 speed gearbox. With a very limited amount of manufacturers making a B series version we narrowed it down to the BGT box as it has full warranty and for the fact we got to choose whatever gear ratios we wanted along with custom length drive shafts. It was also time to update the shocks. Although the Proflex were good over the last number of years they were starting to become dated. They were originally designed for a group N car with very little technology improvements in the last 10 years. We looked at various different shock manufacturers including DMS , Sellholm ,Öhlins, Xtrac etc but found the Reigier to be the best for price and availability.
We're delighted to welcome our new sponsors for 2017 - Loco Energy Drink and Mobil1. We’re excited and honored to have such well known brands come on board and support MCNRallying for the year ahead.
Crossing the finish line in 7th Overall position in the rally was more than we expected. It was great to win the Triton Drive of the Day!! I want to thank Dean for a super job on the notes and also the lads at McConnell Motorsport for service.
