V8 Dirt Modified
Pete Bicknell & Rany Williamson Visit Dec. 2009
The Pete Bicknell Dirt Track University was conducted to approx 50 participants at Ian Boettcher Race Parts new premises at Yamanto, Qld Australia on 17/12/09. With Crew Chief Randy Williamson, Pete and Randy conducted a very intensive 3.5 hour classroom and 2 hour practical set-up class for V8 Dirt Modified Race Cars. Bicknell Racing Products are seen as the leader in Dirt Modified technology, and Pete and Randy were brought to Australia to conduct the University on behalf of Ian Boettcher Race Parts. The classroom session was followed by an on track day at Maryborough Speedway, where participants were able to get 1st hand advice on their car set-up's. Pete and Randy were able to speak with drivers through their transponders as they were on the track. This allowed for changes in car set-ups and for suggestions on better handling, tyre preparation and distribution of car weight.
Said Ian Boettcher, "We are grateful to Pete and Randy for travelling such a long way and we sincerely hope all participants were able to improve their racing from the advice of Pete & Randy".
