We catch up with off-road king Shannon Rentsch



We were at the TJM Lockyer 300 over the weekend and were able to catch up with Shannon Rentsch who took out his seventh Australian Off Road Championship Title on the Sunday.

This interview, recorded after the stages on Saturday outlines how Shannon and his team go racing and how they have achieved so much success.

In the Lockyer 300, Shannon went on to take a comfortable victory.  Run through farming lands at Mulgowie, near Laidley,the track was dusty with bull dust creating massive ruts between the trees that lined most of the course.  Shannon tamed the course with taking the win from Jack Rhodes in second and Prolite Buggy’s Tony Fehlhaber third.

Shannon races alongside his father, Ian in the family run team.  Running with support from Hogs Breath and BF Goodrich the team has become one of the most successful teams in Australian motorsport.

Shannon runs a JIMCO 2010 3500cc Buggy and took three wins in the five round series this year, taking the Title from Jack Rhodes and Beau Robinson
