Team UHMP is proud and truly honoured to be heading into its 3rd year with Penrite as a major sponsor in their endeavours within drag Racing
After a great 2015/2016 season with amazing technical support from Penrite. We were able to win the ANDRA divisional championship, but not settling we’ve set our sights on achieving more wins looking forward to 2017
In 2017 we saw Team UHMP head overseas to Race at the largest drag racing event held in bracket racing in the USA (The Million Dollar Race). This was a very humbling experience, by having amazing support by Penrite and Drag Racing Team Rich we were able to compete.
Coming Back to Australia and moving forward in to the 2018 series, we will still be racing the fully original 1968 RS SS Camaro. This car races in the ANDRA series, “Super Street”, and has gone a personal best of 10.68 sec over the quarter mile.
The Camaro is powered by a Small block Chevy motor 377ci developed here in Melbourne by DK Race products. With a small 70hp shot of nitrous. Behind which a PRRT turbo 400 drives its DK Race Product custom differential, this sends the Camaro down the quarter mile @10.73 sec at speeds of in excess 200+kmph
Through the Development stage Kevin from DK race Product worked hand in hand with the technical team at Penrite to ensure all the engine needs were met.
The motor has done over 200 runs and has not missed a beat thanks to the quality Penrite racing products
Also 2018 brings a new opportunity as we will be developing a new Australian race car, a hint it’s a 1972 Holden. To ship to the USA to take on the world’s best with an Australian V8 powered race car!
Outside of racing UHMP is proud to be able to donate time and support too many charitable events to raise money for these worthy charities and community services, Via the use of their cars and driver. On many occasion Penrite have donated products for raffles and have helped with the marketing of these events, which in turn has been a true blessing.
We can honestly say being a part of the Penrite Brand Ambassador program is not only having a true Australian Company helping with race proven products and support.
But it’s like being a part of a large racing Family whether it’s help with, marketing, engine development product advice or even just a call to see how we are. It’s a blessing to be a part of a company that takes time to care for its Ambassador’s.
