Utes pick- up pace for stu­dent

Townsville Bulletin - - NEWS - CHAR­LIE PEEL

A FLEET of V8 utes is be­ing tweaked and honed by a lucky group of Townsville stu­dents ahead of the Cas­trol EDGE Townsville 400 on July 10- 12.

The five utes from the Syd­ney- based Sieders Rac­ing sta­ble are at Tec- NQ, where the Sieders team and stu­dents, in­clud­ing Year 11 automotive stu­dent Aaron Stan­ley, pre­pare the en­gines for a heavy week­end of rac­ing.

“This is such a great op­por- tu­nity and I’m so grate­ful to have been given this chance,” Aaron said. “I don’t think I would have ever been able to do some­thing like this if I was at any other school.

“I can’t wait to learn ev­ery­thing I can about these awe­some race ve­hi­cles.”

Sieders Rac­ing owner Luke Sieders is ex­cited about his team’s prospects in the V8 Su­per Utes race.

“We have a great team which in­cludes David Sieders a con­sis­tent front run­ner, new comer Bruce Oak­lands, Rhys McNally who was on the podium here last year, Jeremy Gray who has just achieved a sec­ond and third in Dar­win.

“And of course we have pop­u­lar lo­cal driver Graham Ed­wards who is a strong con­tender at his home round with the lo­cal crowd sup­port­ing him,” Mr Sieders said.

“The Townsville street rac­ing makes for great view­ing and we have some very loyal fans here who make the week­end a high­light ... for us.”
