NEW TROPHY TRUCK THIS WEEKEND
THIS WEEKEND Greg Gartner Motorsport will debut its new off road racing Geiser Bros Trophy Truck at the Waikerie Hotel ARB Riverland Enduro.
In the works for the best part of two years, it features a Ford V8 powerplant, Albins six-speed sequential transmission, Fox Shocks and Toyo Tires.
“The Aussie built CJM Ford Truck that has served us so well is tucked up in the shed at home and we’re excited to finally be hitting the track in the new Geiser Bros truck,” Gartner said.
“Our hectic schedule both on and off the race track has meant testing has been limited. We made a quick trip to the States in March and put 50 miles on it with Rick (Geiser), but since it landed in Australia a few days before Finke, we’ve only really given it a run around the paddock.
“Waikerie will be our first chance to settle in and get some proper time in the seat, so we’re not expecting to set any records, but we’ll see how we go.”
While seat time in the new Geiser has been limited, Gartner has been racing the Australian-built R&J Batteries TT with a third in the Extreme 2 WDClass and 13th outright at the Tatts Finke Desert Race with navigator Jamie Jennings.
