The second GRRR enduro was once again held at The Raceway.biz in Melbourne on their hillclimb track. 6 teams showed up to do battle this time with a few absent due to other commitments.

This years race unlike last year was a runaway for the winners as the luck of the draw provided them with 2 really fast motors. The motors as were the tires were hand outs with a mandatory motor change after 2 hours in an effort from one team having a killer motor all the way through and putting a beating on the field. Good idea in concept but in this case Id did not quite work out that way.

TTR has the field absolutely covered winning by just under 100 laps in the end. Second through sixth were close for the first half until some teams started to fade due to problems.

It’s the same car I got third behind Danny and Biscuit at the flat track in Daytona. I just removed the center pan to lighten it up.

Even though Terry and Matt started on the red lane, I think that they were in the lead after the first heat and led the entire race flag to flag. It was a dominating performance by these guys. Congrats.

It was pretty much over the first time they went down the straight. Lol.

In all honesty, The car that Terry and Matt raced handled great all race long and they drove awesome. Very few offs. Yea, the motors were good but the handling was supreme along with the driving. Congrats to Terry and Matt for a well deserved victory.
