Redback Racing to make history at Targa

The Redback Racing pairing of Adam Spence and Erin Kelly are set to make history in this year’s Targa Tasmania. They will be the first race team to run their Nissan R35 GTR with a one piece, full carbon fibre wheel set, produced by Australian company Carbon Revolution.
The latest carbon technology
The wheels are the first aftermarket carbon fibre wheels for the automotive industry, and Redback Racing have been working alongside the Geelong-based company to fit the wheels to the powerful Nissan GTR.

“We did some early testing on the wheels and you could feel the difference immediately, completely changing the dynamics of the car,” Redback Racing driver, Adam Spence, said.

“Acceleration and braking performances were improved over our old aluminium wheels due to dramatic weight savings. The Carbon Revolution CR-9 has improved the overall wheel and tyre combination, which makes such a difference to the car’s handling.

“We know we still have more to learn about the GTR and what it is capable of, and after a solid fifth outright at Targa High Country in November last year, which was our first outing in the car, we know that running such a great product will help us gain those precious seconds needed on every stage to be competitive again this year.”

Brett Gass, Executive Director of Carbon Revolution added that the partnership with Redback Racing had been a tremendous project for Carbon Revolution.  

“We have been looking for the opportunity to work with an innovative racing team to prove our wheel technology in the harshest conditions possible, so we’re looking forward to supporting Redback Racing as they strive for great success in this world famous race,” Gass said.

Carbon Revolution is a global leader in composite technology and has key development partnerships with Deakin University and RMIT in Australia.
