Australia 2013: Magher/Hose shines at Teagle Excavations Pines Enduro



Narva Racings Mick Magher and Daniel Hose capped off the 2013 "ARB Australian Off Road Racing Series" in style, taking victory in the Extreme 4WD Class at the "Teagle Excavations ARB Pines Enduro" held at Millicent, South Australia last weekend.

Heading into the final round of the series sitting second in their class, the Geelong based team pulled out all stops and embraced a never say die attitude to take the class win, which propelled the #882 Narva Racing team into equal first place in the Extreme 4WD category for the Series, alongside fellow Victorian Owen Ward in the #832 GQ Patrol. “What a great way to finish the season. This was our first full season of offroad racing and to come out on top was fantasic.” said Mick Magher.

After heavy showers drenched the arena on Saturday morning, Magher and Hose made a steady start to the event, qualifying third in class during the prologue. Down on power, which was later attributed to a lead, Magher then turned it on for the crowd during the Dash for Cash.

Sending the rear panels flying and launching the Narva GU high off the jumps in a close battle with Owen Ward for second place behind Luke Hall. Even though he finished in third, the door to door racing during the Dash for Cash proved to be one of the highlights of Magher’s season.

“The atmosphere in Teagle’s Quarry for the prologue and Dash For Cash with all the spectators lining the fence is fantastic. It would have to be one of the best days of the whole season! Even the atmosphere on Friday night at scrutineering is great, with the fire drums going and all the cars on display.”

On Sunday morning Magher pointed the #882 Narva Racing GU towards the Tantanoola pine forests for 6 laps of the 73km course, which threaded it’s way out of Teagle’s Quarry and down the narrow forestry tracks and pine breaks.

“We took it easy for our first lap not knowing how slippery and greasy it was going to be. There are big speeds on those closed forestry roads and we were topping around 190kph, which is pretty fast in a Patrol.”

While Magher soon grabbed the class lead from Hall and Ward, it would not all be smooth sailing for the team. The transmission running warm in the soft loamy conditions and on lap 3 they tipped the Patrol on to its side after passing a buggy in some deep chopped out ruts for which the Pines is renowned, costing them a further ten minutes by the time they pulled up to remove the busted steering dampner. However they powered on, withstanding a late charge from Owen Ward during the final section to take the class win in an overall time of 5hr 10min 18.593sec.

“I couldn’t get over how much the track changed to become rocky and sharp, especially in the quarry once the loamy sand was blasted away. Nasty tree roots became exposed out in the forest once the track became carved up and rutted, plus there were some really big sharp rocks lurking there ready to catch you out, but the Mickey Thompsons stood up to the punishment. I really believe if we were on a lesser tyre we would have been cactus.” Said Mick Magher

The Narva Racing teams equal first place in the Extreme 4WD Class was built on some solid performances throughout the season. After finishing third in class at the Sea Lake Mallee Rally in Victoria, the teams season was turned upside down after a major hit with a tree at round 2 at Griffith. Determined to make the Goondiwindi 400, the Narva Racing team pulled out all stops to make the start line and finished the punishing 400km through the infamous Gundy melon holes to be rewarded with third in class, setting up the opportunity to strike for the class win at the final round at the Pines.

“The whole ARB Offroad Racing Series was filled with great racing amongst a great bunch of guys. It was a real lot of fun. Since making the switch to offroad racing I haven’t missed competing in the winch challenges once, I think that anyone who comes over from that scene and tries it will be hooked. Thanks to series sponsors like ARB, Narva and Cooper Tyres it offers a whole new level of professionalism and it is a Series which is really going places. I have been really impressed by everything to do with it and can’t wait for it to kick off again in 2014.”
