How many combined kilometers will this team cover? With an impressive fleet of six vehicles, comprising one male and one female entry in every school category, passionate and committed students, staff and families from Holy Trinity Lutheran College in Horsham, Victoria will be a force to be reckoned with when they descend on Tailem Bend this weekend.
From humble beginnings 13 years ago, the school team has grown to 52 riders. In addition, an estimated 100 staff, families and friends will make their way across the border to Tailem Bend this weekend.
“We have huge interest for the male and female teams, all the way from categories S1 to S3, with riders from Years 5 to 12,” stated Team Manager Matthew McLoughlin. “We’ll have a very full bus, trailers and cars transporting some 150 people and GTrike racing HPVs to The Bend this weekend. Our riders will be staying at Unity College in Murray Bridge, who have generously agreed to host the team, with families staying locally and at Rydges Pit Lane” he added.
McLoughlin said the new circuit will be a bit of an unknown and the team will need to adapt. “It’s exciting to be able to race on an international standard track with excellent facilities. It’s like nothing we’ve done before and we’ll have to adapt to the longer lap length and pit setup.”
Longer term the team is keen to win at Murray Bridge under the 24hr format. “This is the big carrot!” he enthused, adding “It would be fantastic to have a Round of the UniSA Australian HPV Super Series in Victoria!”
