Fast Times at Spinozzi Racing
A Sydney racing team is clocking record times thanks to Hitachi sponsorship
The 2014 season was the most successful to date for Spinozzi Racing, and with key signings for their team for 2015, this season is shaping up to be just as successful.
Spinozzi Racing is an Australian drag racing partnership between brothers Emilio and Adamo Spinozzi. They have been competing in Pro Stock racing since 2010, with Hitachi Construction Machinery Australia (HCA) coming on board as a financial sponsor in 2011.
“Our biggest achievements for 2014 included being runner-up at the 2014 X Champs and Australia’s quickest 60 footing Pro Stock car,” says team owner Emilio Spinozzi.
“It was the first time that our Terra Civil, Hitachi Camaro Pro Stocker had gone past the first round in the X Champs, so we were not expecting it at all, but things just seemed to go our way.”
At the end of 2014, Spinozzi re-signed their Crew Chief, Michael Marriot, for the next 18 months. This was a big boost for the team after such a triumphant season.
“Michael has been the turnaround for the team for the season so far. He has been able to put fast consistent runs down and improve our times at nearly every outing,” Emilio says.
“The 2015 season has already seen us with the second fastest Pro Stock car in the country and the fastest small block naturally aspirated Chev in the world.”
Crew Chief Michael says the recent development in their engine and chassis programs is seeing the team set new personal bests at nearly every event.
“The team are now in a highly competitive position and are considered to be one of the leading contenders in the 2015 / 2016 Pro Stock championship season, which begins at Adelaide International Raceway this October,” Michael says.
Most recently, Spinozzi competed at the Fuchs Winternationals at Willowbank Raceway in Queensland in early June, posting their quickest times to date and qualifying second overall at the event.
HCA would like to congratulate the Spinozzi Racing team on their achievements to date and extends its support to Emilio and Adamo Spinozzi for their future motorsport events.
