Team Gigglepin take 1st in Kirton

Jim Marsden Drives Bad Penny to the first Win of the Year for Maxxis Ultra4

Team Gigglepin were racing Bad Penny, their customised 6.2L V8 Defender based vehicle using Maxxis Trepador 40" Competition Tyres.

The team got off to a flying start in the prologue, taking 2nd spot behind a rapid Mark Dean, which putting them in a fantastic position ahead of 160km of racing on Saturday and Sunday. After a gruelling weekend that meant repairs to their differential and idler bearings the Maxxis Trepadors held up all the way with no flats or punctures.

The team skilfully won 4 out of the 6 sessions and took the overall win by a 3 lap margin and their first ever win at Kirton!
