Alberto Dorsch and his team were racing recently in the second round of the T2 Spanish Championship with EBC Truck Yellowstuff Sport brake pads and GD Sport Rotors that were vital to help the team win the Baja Almonzora round.
Cuevas del Almanzora was the scene of the second round of the T2 Spanish Championship and the Toyota Motor Kobe team had great hopes of a successful race for several reasons; it is an area specially remembered and in previous events our team was there for ten of the eleven events celebrated, being the ones who have more “Bajas Almanzorla” wins and the ones who are favored to win the championship. Also because of the high friction EBC Toyota brake set-up designed to cope with the rocky, dusty mountainous conditions.
The race took place all day Saturday and included two prologue stages with a 135km section and finally a 67km loop. Alberto and Marcos were in charge of tuning up the Land Cruiser and preparing it to the best possible standards to perform in the T2.
During the first round of the prologue the Toyota was involved in a minor incident when they had a collision exiting out of a road.
In the second round the team managed to improve their results by one minute which ended in a much more desirable starting position.
The pace was good in the 135km section, even though the team’s speed was lower, the Toyota performed perfectly proving that the mechanical changes made by Marcos were remarkable.
The next stage began in a grid format with vehicle setting off every 30 seconds. The Toyota had some traction issues and had to dodge out of the way of other oncoming vehicles and the team also helped several vehicles in distress despite their fuel running low. The team managed to finish in a respectable 10th position.
During the night time break, the ARC-Miracar team worked to get everything in perfect order for the next day’s racing of the final 135km stretch that they had raced the day before. The objective was to finish without incident so the speed was kept slightly lowered. As a consequence the team became overall winners of this round of the T2 Championship.
