Wakefield Park Testing

AMG Romano WorkXHot Tuner is only a month away and the WorkX crew has been busy preparing our cars for the Sydney event. As expected Goulburn provided the type of weather that left our team chilled, sunburned and wind-burned all at the same time!!! Track conditions were perfect and the BMW M3 quickly proved as much. The crew spent the morning adjusting the tune and the afternoon assessing new tyre / wheel combinations.

We were also joined by TargaRacing with their Toyota 86 GT and an AMG C63. The 86 ran through a program of shocks /spring testing whilst the AMG made sweet, sweet music! More testing is scheduled in the weeks to come as we also prepare for the Renault Nationals in September.

Track Work Tuning At Queensland Raceway

Another great day tuning our customer cars at Queensland Raceway during the 2013 Time Attack series. The Romano WorkX team cars were joined by a number of customer cars including a stunning Renault Clio Sport.

We were fortunate to meet Damien on-track with his BMW 135i.

Damien’s ‘bimmer’ was especially quick on the 1/4 mile front straight bosting a raucous twin turbo 3L 6 cylinder masterpiece from Munich. BTW Damien, you left your tow-hook cover behind…give us a call!

We were also stoked to meet Winton & Leighton who fielded their earlier model

Renault Clio 182 Sport’s. These cars are seriously quick through the twisties and surprised many on the day.

Our Romano WorkX fleet including the Renault Megane RS250, BMW M Coupe and VW Golf GTiR ran a series of tyre tests as well as a new suspension setup. The overall results were more than we expected. Our next event will be the Hot Tuner series which we’re preparing for at this time.

If you were on-track and had any questions or if you’d like to discuss your tuning requirement give us a call on (07) 3395 8255.
