BRISBANE JAMBOREE SETS BIG RECORDS

Date: 26/08/19

Nothing but blue skies, sunshine and smiles as the 2019 Garrett Advancing Motion Brisbane Jamboree took to Ipswich's Willowbank Raceway this weekend. With over 180 of the country's fastest sports compact cars it was the place to be for racers and spectators alike resulting in some of the biggest crowds Jamboree has seen in recent years.

Pac Performance racer Rodney Rehayem in his Mazda RX8 moved straight to the top of the fastest 13b Rotaries in Australia with a 6.49 at 210 mph, reclaiming the number one spot once again.

Owner of Pac Performance Rocky Rehayem spoke about resetting the record, "we are happy obviously. We have two pro cars that are extremely demanding and after the first round Rodney's transmission broke. In 40 minutes, we swapped out the engine and the transmission, and came back out to run a 6.59 in the heat and then ran a 6.49 when the weather got better. We are super happy with the result."

It was an exciting weekend overall, with plenty of crashes, wheelstands, records reset, happy fans and off-track excitement. "The 2019 Brisbane Jamboree has been outstanding. The weather was beautiful, we have had great crowds on both days and the competitors as usual have put on incredible performances with world record times and speeds.

"Jamboree Australia is extremely proud of the event, it certainly is a wonderful turnaround from the last years rainout. A huge thanks to the fans, racers, officials and everyone who has helped make the event happen, it has really been one of the best Jamborees," said Steve Bettes from Jamboree Australia.

Fuel Tech owner Anderson Dick also agreed on the success of the event, "I am so please I came from Brazil for such a great event. It is similar to events in Brazil, but the cars here, especially Factory Xtreme are next level. It was a great opportunity to see some crazy cars and also meet so many Fuel Tech customers."
