Over the weekend, Lionel Saunders and Vincent Chu travelled to Perth to contest their first major event together for the Smokem team. It was also their first time attending a major event together with the Xpress XQ1 chassis.
The open, freshly laid asphalt surface was unlike anything they have seen before. And with track temperatures over 60°C, they had to pool their resources to find a setup for their XQ1s to tackle the challenging conditions.
In the end, Lionel finished an excellent 7th against the best modified drivers in the country, while Vincent secured a podium in 13.5T with a fine 3rd. It was a great result by both with more performance to be unlocked from the new Xpress XQ1 chassis.
