Team Triumph on the Podium

Team Triumph took part in the MSCA 6-Hour Regularity Relay event held at Mallala on Sunday 1st June with drivers Neil Martin (TR7) Peter Nelson (TR8 dhc) Andy Ansell from Victoria (TR7) Colin Gaetjens (Mitsubishi Lancer Evo TR6) Robin George (Westfield Clubman TR4) and Roger Lange (GT6).

Andy Ansell started the event for the Team, and after a few break out laps, settled down to produce a good session.Each driver contributed a 30 minute stint to complete the first rotation, with only Robin George experiencing some electrical gremlins with his car that saw his turn cut short. Roger was last out for the group, but could not contribute further after noticing an oily residue under the car caused by a failed oil seal in the rhs diff flange. Robin’s problems continued, but he was able to enjoy a reasonable time out on the track for the team, and put in some consistent laps whilst there.

Andy, Neil, Colin and Peter all took up the slack for the remainder of the event, all improving on their consistency to the point that after the chequered flag had fallen, were very satisfied with a job well done, and had a fun time doing it.

The winners were anounced after a dinner function held in the corporate facility at the track, and the team was very pleasantly surprised to have placed third overall – a great result and well done to all involved.

The support team consisted of John Touhy, Rod Carey, Frank Lewell, Stephanie George, Lindsay Coleman, Bill Berlemon, and with catering taken care of by Cherri Lange. A great team effort! Thanks to all involved.
