While the off season in Australian Sprintcar racing saw Torque Tube take a partial break, the same can’t be said of the Teams and people behind the scenes.

The off season brings a short spell for many, but new car builds, engine freshening and car testing are all part of the deal that makes what seems a quiet time rather busy.

If you want to be successful in Sprintcar racing, you can’t afford to finish your season, pack the gear up and put your feet up.

For several months now Teams have been preparing their race cars and transporters and are now emerging for some serious shakedown work, with Sydney’s Valvoline Raceway running its first practice session of the new 2016/17 season last Saturday night (10th Sept).

Out intrepid Sydney-based photographer Gary Reid took the time to attend the practice session and has provided a sneak peek of some of the new talent and new livery that awaits us.

Thanks Gary !
