Round 3 of the ARB Australian Off Road Racing Series was on from the 9th to the 11th of June this year. Team Mickey was strong on the field for round three, with approximately 35% of the field running on Mickey Thompson Tires; 34 of the 98 starters.

 

No Mickeys were damaged over the weekend, so no spares were needed.

 

Aaron Haby (pictured above) said that the tyres delivered too much grip turning turtle in the prologue. Starting in 11th place, Haby surged the Element into 3rd outright at the finish.

TATTS FINKE DESERT RACE

Team Mickey Thompson at Finke 2017

 

At the recent running of the Finke Desert Race in Alice Springs, teams running the Mickey Thompson Tires found out why they are considered the best 4wd tyre on the market.

 

This year was one of the toughest with only 72 teams classed as finishers out of 138 starters. Many competitors had tyre issues, that prevented them from finishing the race. Luckily for Team Mickey Thompson, not one of those issues were caused by a Mickey.

 

Team Mickey had finishers in every class. Three of our teams succumbed to mechanical issues early, Matt Hanson (Fuel Pump), Mark Burrows (Tree) and Glen Owen (overheating), but as they say there is always next year. Congratulations to all the winners.
