STRIKER TR sets a new track record
Marc Conroy was thrilled to have set the fastest time at his debut with his new STRIKER TR at Thruxton on 27th May 2006. As the weather was terrible and it rained down in bucket loads, the track was very treacherous. Also, as it was the first time the 750 MC had used Thruxton, it was a steep learning curve for those who had not raced there before. As it happened, Marc was beaten to the Podium high spot by a more experienced driver, but in his heroic chase Marc set the fastest time which is now the lap record!
This is the second time this year that the STRIKER TR has set a lap record on its debut, as Gary Goodyear did it earlier this year. This proves a second time that the STRIKER is just as competitive, or even more competitive than ever. Just as we proved when we were racing in the RGB in 2004, it is still possible to win races with our open wheeled type vehicle, even though all the full-bodied variants are boasting of their aerodynamics and other features! They are still playing catch up with the new lowered race STRIKER TR.
We would also like to thank all the other STRIKER competitors in the race at Thruxton. Four of them came in the top 10 – what an achievement! We would like to thank Gary Goodyear, Paul Cooper, Nic Scott, Jonathon Barret and Paul Boyd for flying the STRIKER flag – well done lads! Also thank to all those STRIKER fans that came to support us. It was great to see you there.
The next race is at Brands the weekend of the 10th June. Check on the details with 750 MC and go along and support it. All the lads will be pleased to see you.
Also, if you are interested in building a genuinely competitive car, come and see how good the STRIKER TR really is. You know many manufacturers boast of their racing experience but when you ask about the heritage or present form of the car – well – it is a job to beat the STRIKER! Give us a ring – we are only too willing to help.
