See the Ute meet the Driver Day at RYCO 24•7 Ingleburn and RYCO 24•7 Mascot
On Wednesday the 3rd of December Gerard “Maverick” McLeod made himself and his V8 Ute available to the RYCO 24•7 Service centres in Sydney to meet with customers and staff. Gerard gave everyone a bit of insight in to how and what it takes to run a Ute in this highly competitive class of motor racing.
Many attendees were surprised at the amount of physical and financial commitments these guys make to this class of incredibly close racing as well as what it takes to create the spectacle it is and that is why it is such a firm favourite with the fans. We would like to thank Gerard for his efforts this year, both on and off the track to help us in our drive to gain exposure and brand recognition for RYCO 24•7 . Thanks again Gerard
McLeod charges to finish in 2014
The Macmahon Racing team has endured a tough finish to the 2014 V8ute championship on the streets of Sydney’s Homebush Olympic Park but has come away with a list of positives to be proud of after its third season of racing. The weekend (5 – 7 December 2014) started fantastically for the team with consistent top 10 speed from the MAC UTE during Friday’s two 20-minute practice sessions leaving the team very confident leading into Saturday’s (6 December 2014) qualifying session.
Saturday morning brought the ever important qualifying session and McLeod was instantly to the top of the time sheets in 4th overall. After a quick pit-stop to adjust tyre pressures McLeod tried to better his pervious time but was unable to after catching slower traffic ending the session in 10th overall only 0.9secs off pole position.
Sunday’s Race 2 saw McLeod start in 29th position quickly making up 9 positions on the opening lap. The race was cut short due to a safety car period but McLeod was able to end the race in 13th overall passing and incredible 16 utes in just five completed race laps winning him the “DBA HARD BRAKER” award and $500 in the process. The No.50 ute also recorded the 4th fastest race lap of the race which was also very impressive.
Race 3 saw the MAC UTE again start at the back of the field in 27th position and quickly move into 18th by the end of the first lap. McLeod then picked off ute after ute to finish a strong 15th in what was a very hot race for the 32 car field.

STM Golf Day Sponsorship
Being one of the larger Truck and Machinery dealers in the area, Sydney Trucks and Machinery have a vast array of clients that benefit from the services that a RYCO 24.7 Outlet can provide. STM are local, family owned and operated, with the owners having grown up and still living in close vicinity. STM now have branches up and down the east coast through the acquisition of smaller dealerships. Canberra and Wollongong being the two most recent.
Held at Camden Lakeside Country Club, STM’s annual Golf Day was a great success for staff, clients, suppliers and supporters. RYCO 24•7 Ingleburn supported this year’s Golf Day with sponsorship of the 10th hole.
Sponsorship gives the ability to be able to form your own team. RYCO 24•7 Ingleburn’s team included Daniel (RYCO 24.7 Penrith) and 2 clients of RYCO 24•7 Ingleburn. Daniel and I got to meet with local business owners and suppliers and had a fun day with 2 of our valued clients.
The day started with a light lunch as players started to gather and register their attendance for the 12.30 tee off. The event format is a 4 person Ambrose so as to speed things along and encourage teams to work together as well as socialise.
As teams finished up we gathered at the club house, freshened up, then made our way to dinner where guests had some light entertainment and handed out awards for the day, the RYCO 24•7 Ingleburn team taking away the NAGA award.
