Multispares Racing and Ryan Hansford head to Queensland Raceway in 10 days’ time for round 4 of the 2017 Touring Car Masters series (TCM).
The Peters Motorsport team who look after the mighty Multispares Torana are based in Redcliffe north of Brisbane, just an hour’s drive from Queensland Raceway (QR) where they do all their testing.
With a hectic schedule running cars in both the TCM and V8 Utes this year, the team have given the Torana the once over and will test the 5.0L SLR 5000 this week to ensure the steering pump and steering rack have been correctly rebuilt after the pump failed in round 2 and the rack in round 3.
Both driver and team have been pushed this season. After only getting the time for a quick shakedown at QR before round 1 at the Clipsal 500, Ryan set the TCM field alight with a brilliant performance around the streets of Adelaide. But come Winton and Darwin they soon found that getting the right car set up, diff ratio, gearbox ratios and Ryan tweaking his V8 Ute driving style was made even harder with issues that kept them guessing with the steering system.
The competitors in TCM are a friendly bunch but they are all there to win and all that juicy information takes time to gather. Names like Bowe and Johnson are fantastic benchmarks and the whole team are looking forward to the challenge and can’t wait to get to the track.
With Ryan running 4th overall and 2nd in the Pro Am class, catch all the action from July 28th on Fox sports or follow the team’s progress on the team Facebook page –
