A new sound will add to the excitement of the 2013 Auto One V8 Ute Racing Series – protected by ARMOR ALL – when Xforce Headers and Exhaust Systems are fitted to all 32 race Utes prior to hitting the track for Round Five at Sandown Raceway next month.
Xforce came on-board as the official Headers and Exhausts supplier to the series this year and after extensive testing, Sales and Marketing Manager Tom Wallace is excited to add the final result to the Race Utes.
“We at Xforce are very excited to be part of the V8 Utes program and to release the new headers for all 32 cars,” Wallace said.
“This will complete the full front to back exhaust system and we are sure that the teams will be happy with the improved performance results.
“V8 Utes is a great platform to connect with our customers and also to utilise the involvement for ongoing research and development, which is one of our core values. We hope that everyone enjoys the ‘new sound of the V8 Utes’.”
Series front-runner and Yokohama V8 Ute Rookie leader Elliot Barbour has already had a feel for the new exhaust system and can’t wait to try it out on the track.
“They sound really good, the engine felt crisp and on a whole it felt great. I’m looking forward to racing with them at Sandown,” said Barbour.
The new Xforce system has already been fitted to Rhys McNally’s Holden and Jack Elsegood’s Ford yesterday.
Category Manager Craig Denyer of SPHERIX is pleased to have Xforce in the Series from both technical and commercial standpoints.
The V8 Utes will be just one of the support categories lining up at the Wilson Security Sandown 500, the next event on the V8 Supercars calendar. Tickets are available through Ticketek.
