TEKNO Autosports drivers Shane van Gisbergen and Jonathon Webb recently sampled a state-of-the-art Sprintcar at Archerfield Speedway.
The duo took to the wheel of Queensland champion Andrew Scheuerle’s brand new 900bhp beast in a media day organised through Team Darrell Lea STIX partners, Lucas Oils.
“I was a bit intimidated initially,” said the Kiwi.
“It’s tight in the cockpit, the walls are close and Sprintcars have so much power, but I got more and more comfortable and the speed came with it,”
“When you sit in it, it doesn’t feel comfortable because you’re so upright and driving it like a bus, but when you get going the rush takes over. The power these cars have is just awesome.”
