This weeks Husqvarna racing news


Andrew DeLong put his FAR Husqvarna back on top of the podium in the XC2 class and finished 4th overall!!! The weather was in the low 100’s (over 38°C) at the start of the race. This made for a very dry and dusty conditions in the extreme heat. The woods where so thick with leaves on the tree’s that the dust would raise up only to hit the leaves and come back down again. When the flag was thrown for the start Andrew and teammate Nick Davis got off to a good start and headed into the woods in 6th and 7th place.Coming into the pit area at the end of lap 1, Andrew was in 4th place and Nick in 13th.
With reports coming in from the GNCC spotters Andrew had passed his way into 2nd place and was closing in on the leader. Andrew made the pass on the end of lap 4 coming by the pit area. He was ready to put the hammer down on the last last. As the 2 riders left the moto track Andrew was only 2 seconds ahead of 2nd.  Andrew came by the pits and on to the moto track and across the finish line for his 3rd win of the season. Nick made the pass for 4th only to make a mistake and lose some time and finish in 5th for the day.

Event organizers added to the already challenging nature of the 2012 event by increasing the race distance to 8 laps of a 38 kilometre course including some tight technical sections through to high speed, top gear – full throttle sections. Husqvarna Racing’s Glenn Kearney and his Husqvarna TE 310 locked in a 13th position in Saturday’s prologue. The horsepower sapping sandy conditions saw Kearney perform strongly to take his place amongst a field of predominately 450cc and larger capacity machines for Sunday’s 300 plus kilometre race. As a previous winner of the event Kearney was all too aware of what would be required to post a strong result and set about ensuring that he remained focused throughout the course of the day to continue to move up through the field eventually finishing in a solid 6th position. Both Kearney and the Husqvarna Racing team were extremely pleased with the result as the TE 310 continued its giant killing form as the only sub 450cc machine in the top ten.
