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 ...

MAC UTE out of luck on the Gold Coast

The Macmahon Racing team have walked away from Round 7 of the V8ute Championship on the streets of the Gold Coast left wondering what might have been after another run of bad luck ended what would have been a fantastic result. The weekend started with Gerard “Maverick” McLeod narrowly missing a Top 10 qualifying result ending up 11th at the end of the 20 minute session only 0.9 tenths of a second off pole position. The weekend’s final race saw McLeod starting from the rear of the field (28th) again on points tally and yet again McLeod was in the hunt early moving up to the top 20 within the first lap. McLeod then picked off another five cars lap by lap with an impressive drive to finish 15th at the end of the 12lap race. The eighth and final round of the V8ute championship is on the 5-7th December on the streets of Sydney’s Homebush Bay Olympic Park.

RYCO Melbourne staff and customers treated to ‘Hot Laps’ in the Macmahon V8 Racing Ute

As a result of RYCO sponsoring Gerard “The Maverick” McLeod in five rounds of the Australian V8 Ute Racing Series, we were invited by Gerard to bring customers and staff to the Sandown race track to participate in some ‘Hot Laps’ in his V8 Ute. A draw was held among the interested Melbourne staff and those lucky enough to be selected were treated to two incredibly fast (and truth be told slightly scary) ‘Hot Laps’. With Gerard at the wheel, you needed to put a lot of trust in his driving skills. As the first corner on the race track comes racing towards you, the feeling of relief as Gerard touches the brake pedal quickly disappears as he instead accelerates into the corner and you start to question his sanity and your own mortality. From this point on, and for the rest of your time in the passenger seat, you are in his very capable hands and it can be said that the adrenalin rush only gets better when he clicks the Ute into top gear at 195 kph down ...

RYCO 24•7 sponsors the Southern Stars Netball Team 2

Congratulations must go to the RYCO 24•7 sponsored Southern Stars Netball Team 2 for finishing third in the Winter U15s SAUNA Div. 1 Netball competition. The girls started the season in Division 1 once again and the tough competition saw some challenging games played. Many of the girls had not played together before and some heavy losses were suffered earlier in the season. However, hard work and a bit of tough love during training and games paid off, with some great competitive results towards the end of the season. The highlight of the season came in the last regular game against HUB Team 1 (a team who had beaten the girls in their previous three encounters), with the Southern Stars winning by an impressive five goals. The girls played throughout the season with great spirit and endeavour and always remembered to have fun. Well done girls! RYCO 24•7 is a proud to be a sponsor of the U15s Southern Stars. ...
