Performance Chip Tuning has completed a fantastic weekend of racing at the 2012 Wakefield 300. Held in the wettest weekend seen in Goulburn for almost 20 years, the team consisting of two Performance Chip Tuning prepared NC Mazda MX5’s finished 5th outright and 1st and 2nd in class.

The event had 40 starters including a variety of turbo 4wd’s, V8’s, future racers, production cars, sports cars and sports sedans.

Driver of car #57 Michael Hall said “What a great result for our whole team. To have 2 cars in the top 10 is an awesome result we are very proud of. The weather conditions suited our cars very well and this combined with some slick work in the pit stops had us in the front pack for the entire race.

Co-driver and car preparer of Performance Chip Tuning added “we only just completed the build on this car last week and came to this event virtually untested. The car was easily the best MX5 I’ve driven, and I’ve driven a few. Racing this weekend has been a huge amount of fun and many thanks to Michael for inviting me to co-drive with him in an event I’ve wanted to do for some time”

Driver of car #75 Steven Head said “A great team effort for all involved and huge amount of fun.  The car was really good to drive and very well set up”

Co-driver of car #75 Nick Martinenko added “Having never raced a NC before I was not sure what to expect but have come away with a new respect for these great cars.  With their awesome handling and brakes it was a pleasure to drive in some testing conditions.  Great fun!!”

The NC model Mazda MX5’s run unique chip tuning in order to increase power and the delivery of that power at the right time during each lap.

From Terry Nightingale – event commentator “The highlight for me though was Chris Gough and Michael Hall …who never seem to set foot off the racing surface to come home in a respectful 5th outright and winning their division”
