T3 TE-50's Run At Wakefield Park

Hi all



Myself and shaynet ran the TE-50's today at wakefield park and what a result. We were the fastest fords out there on the day and demolished everything on the track including a highly modded CV8 Monaro running Potenza RE055's, evo lancers 5 & 6, Wrx Sti's etc, blew the doors off the BA Series II GT with every bolt on known to man + all the usual herrod gear, 4 Capa prepared Turbo falcons with stage II mods and one was running AP racing brake setup...... The only cars that were faster, on a private two car run were two race prepared MRT team Mitsubishi Evo 9's that ran times in the 1:12.50's. We were running the T3's around at 1:14:30 on street tyres and these blokes could not belive it. Overall it was a top day and had heaps of fun. I have in car cam as usual and will most likely up the video tomorrow night. Not bad for two standard T3 Te-50's with very mild mods consisting... Street Tyres, Exhaust, CAI & K&n Filter.




I should also mention....


Special thanks to sbutler who was there on the day and provided excellent tips in tyre pressure's for that particular circuit and his detailed knowledge in regards to V8 Supercars setups and his superbike racing background. Thanks also steve for the use of the timing transponders.


Cheers.


Cheers.

No problems Al happy to help..
Well done to both you & shayne, the cars looked the part & performed very well. Its a shame that T3 man had to leave, would have been good to compair times between all three of the T3s. Not only that but three T3s thrashing around the track would have looked great

Great stuff. The T series really should have been titled a GT, then everything after would have to at least match the previous model for performance. I love my GT, but the T series hammer.

BA GT-P owner and loving it!

Nice photos, but how about some different shots, maybe from a different angle?

Those shots were done by professional photographer who work at the track and their vantage points are limited to a few spots on the western side of the track. All the shots are either coming onto, or at the end of, the main straight. Don't know if you are familiar with the track but there are only two left turns.

I guess they could have got some in the tight left "fish hook"

There is in car video footage of about 4 laps from the red car on the fordforums.com.au which shows how fast they are

The cop said "Do you know why I pulled you over". I said " Well, that all depends on how long you have been following me!"
