Off-road racing competitors, CBT Racing, riding in their GQ Nissan Patrol fitted with brand new Maxxis Razrs MT772’s, has come out victorious with a first round win at the opening event of the 2019 Qld Off-road Racing Series.
Driver, Christian Trusz and navigator, Shane Harris cruised to the finish line over a minute ahead of their nearest rival in the first round at Sexton (north Gympie) in the Modified 4WD Class (Class 8) and also went on to achieve a top 10 overall finish.
Despite the weekend producing some tough and gruelling conditions, the new Razrs were more than up to the challenge and the team was quickly able to get to grips with their new tyres and their outstanding capabilities.
“The extended track at Sexton, was difficult. The varying terrain, water crossings, rocky sections and thick dust made it difficult to close in on the vehicle in front of you,” Christian said. “Despite all the challenges, I could rely on our Maxxis Razrs’ performance and pushed the Patrol to its limits.”
The team added that while were some reports of side wall failure of other tyres at the event, the Razrs were more than up to the test! “We had no such issues with the Razrs. They appear stronger when compared to other tyres, have increased grip levels when braking and through corners and visually at the end of the race the tread looked great, showing very little sign of what it had been through.”
Congratulations CBT and all the best for your next challenge in the series at St George on 5 – 7 April
