The Anglomoil SXS (side by side) race team competing in the East Coast Bullbars Australian Rally Championship (ECB ARC) has scored third at the opening round, the Quit Forest Rally in the forests of WA.
Les and Nathan Chivers (father and son) stayed on the pace with the leaders throughout the two days of high speed forest racing on the slippery ball bearing surface in their Can Am Maverick 1000 X RS which is lubricated by a range of Anglomoil products.
Both Can Ams finished on the podium with the Michael Guest machine scoring 2nd outright. The winner was the Polaris of Cody Crocker.
“We finished all okay without any mechanical problems. The car performed faultlessly. There was only one ‘moment’ when we landed on the side after hitting a big hole in the middle of the track that wasn’t there in recce”, says Les, “Cody’s new vehicle was too good this time but before we go to round two in SouthAustralia we will fit 14” rims and bigger tyres and bigger brakes. We were fully committed to every stage and kept to within 1 second per kilometre behind Guest so we be looking for some extra horse power before South Australia.”
The Chivers scored 60 points in the ARC behind Guest (68) and Crocker (80).
