COLOURFUL CHARACTER BACK ON TRACK

One of the Aussie Racing Cars "colourful characters" joins us once again, the gentle giant that is Adam Uebergang is set to join the class at next weekend's second round down in Tasmania. Uebergang last ran with the Aussie Cars at our final round of the 2018 Championship on the Gold Coast where he finished 5th for the weekend in his Uebergang Transport Camaro.  Although for the past couple of seasons he's been unable to do the whole year, he has chosen the long distance events (travel wise) to run in, Adam ran last year at the Darwin special invitation round. Forever with a smile on his face he enjoys the battle of racing - especially the close racing that the pocket rockets provide.  Symmons…
