JUST a single heat finish, not even a win, is enough for the Polaris Racing Team to wrap up its third consecutive ARC SXS (side-by-side) Challenge title.
Team Driver Cody Crocker and co-driver Greg Foletta just need to finish one of the two heats at this weekend’s Rally Victoria to secure the championship in the one make off-road rally category.
“Mathematically we need to finish just one of the heats. But my target is always to win, so I certainly won’t be going out there to cruise around for the points” said Cody Crocker.
The Polaris Racing Team placed first back in April at the WA round, third in SA and first at the recent NSW round at Rally Australia. This weekend the team are expected to tackle heavy rain on the forestry stages at Rally Victoria and will cover 63.3km on Friday and 138.1km on Saturday.
“It’s been a great year; we’ve been on average two seconds per kilometre faster than last year. So to think ahead to some of those roads at Rally Victoria, I can’t wait!” continued Crocker.
At the recent Rally Australia in Coffs Harbour NSW rally veterans Crocker and Foletta placed first in all three heats and ultimately won the weekend.
