The 2018 Shannons Targa Rallysprint Series revs into gear on Thursday 2nd November backed by new sponsor Axis Hire, a Western Australian heavy vehicle and earth moving equipment hire company.
Axis Hire is also supporting the GT Fabrication Rallysprint in Bunbury in June 2018.
Axis Hire proprietor and GT Fabrication Targa Rallysprint competitor Mark Cates said he felt it was important to support the series.
“I’ve competed in two Rallysprint events in Bunbury and I’ve been so impressed with how well the events are run - I know the organisers do it on a shoe-string. Axis Hire has come on board to help the Rallysprint series become bigger and better,” Mr Cates said.
Cates, the owner of a Ferrari 488 Spider that he raced in the 2016 and 2017 Rallysprint series, has called for more exotic cars owners to get involved.
“I’ve done track days at Barbagallo but I wanted more. I reckon everyone who owns an exotic car should get their pampered cars out of the garage and onto the track – it’s so much fun!”
