X Factory Success in Australia!All pics click to enlarge. Racing pics courtsey of Ross Cooper.
|Over the last weekend in August there were a few regional races in Australia, and a few drivers wrote to us to let us know of their success. Team driver Scott Pettet said, "Just wanted to drop you a note about some great success for X-Factory at this weekend’s Club Challenge round at the Ryde track in Sydney. I won mod truck with my X - 60 and placed 3rd in mod buggy. I'm sure I would have challengened for the win if I had qualified higher, but only managed 5th on the grid due to no practice on the new, very technical, layout. Ashley Anthony TQ'd and won stock buggy with his X - 6², with another X car in 2nd. X-Factory had a good spread of cars through all A-finals, with at least two in each main and wins in two out of the four classes.|
|"There were lots of comments about how good both the buggy and truck looked on the track. Mine were really dialled! I know of at least two guys from the weekend who said they’re now going X-Factory :). I’d estimate that X-Factory is now the second most popular chassis in both buggy and truck here in Sydney!"|

about the XF Family doing well in Victoria, Australia, on the same weekend.
"Well just got back from the Wodonga drivers round and it was a good weekend for the X factory team from Keilor with all X6's making the A final! Our new team mate Glenn Wilson's first big meeting with the X - 6² TQ'ed and won the first two finals to take the meeting... well done Glenn. I had speedy and motor problems all day and even though I missed one of the finals still managed to bring home 3rd so all was not lost. I eventually worked out it was a dodgy motor, even though I'd just taken it out of the box :-\. Overall, X Factory qualified 1st, 2nd, 4th, and 6th, won the meeting, and had 2 cars in the top 3.
All cars were running my set up as posted on your site [note: found here] and we only had to change tyres with the changing track surface... the cars were great!
|I know there are a few "State Titles" races coming up soon, so best of luck to all the X Factory guys in Australia. Here's to continued racing success!|
