THE V8 Ford Performance Racing
team (FPR) has continued its suc-
cessful season with Team Navy rac-
ing to a podium finish in Perth on
On a year-long stint with the
2012 FPR outplacement program,
POMT Clinton MacGregor and
LSMT Ashley Schmidt said the team
knew that if they could pull off a
solid result in Perth, they would be
serious championship contenders.
"The Perth result has truly con-
creted the team's reputation," POMT
"We have again proven we can
continue this momentum and con-
firmed that the good fortune at the
start of the year was by no means a
fluke, but more a significant sign of
things to come."
Team Navy driver Chaz Mostert
placed third, keeping him on top of
the leader board with 543 champion-
ship points going into the Townsville
400 event on July 6-8.
While in Perth, the FPR team also
visited HMAS Stirling and gave per-
sonnel a chance to have a look at the
Team Navy Ford Falcon V8.
During the visit to Stirling, Team
Navy driver Chaz Mostert signed
autographs, talked to the ship's com-
pany about his life in the fast lane
and also praised the work ethic of his
"They are two of our hardest
workers in the workshop. You know,
our cars have never looked cleaner,"
"I don't think there are two guys
that have fit in better in our associa-
POMT MacGregor also spoke
highly of the outplacement program,
and urged the Navy's west-based
marine technicians to get their appli-
cations in for next year.
"It has been fantastic. The most
exciting thing is getting the vehicle
out onto the track," he said.
"After the endless hours of work
we put in during the production
stage, to actually see a win is a buzz
that no one can take away from you."
Stirling's Commanding Officer
CAPT Brett Wolski said the skills
being practised by marine techni-
cians on the track would in turn
enhance Navy's technical strengths
"They are working in a high-
paced, cutting-edge environment,
and on state-of-the-art technology,"
"After their secondment, they will

bring these dynamic skills back and
apply them to their jobs at sea."
The team also paid a visit to
HMAS Kuttabul on April 19 where
more than 100 personnel got some
rare hands-on racing experience in
Team Navy's V8 simulator as part
of a Navy Community Engagement
Program and raised more than $200
for the ship's charity.
Personnel had the drive of their
lives as they reached speeds in excess
of 200km as they tore around the vir-
tual Mount Panorama track.
SMN Steve Tapp, of HMAS
Kuttabul, said he was thrilled by the
"It was great fun although I hit a
few cars and found the barrier a few
times," he said.
SMNMT Ben Gillver, of FSU,
placed third in his race and also had
several spectacular crashes.
"The simulator felt like the real
deal because the high-pitch roar of
the engines and vibrating seats creat-
ed a feeling of authenticity," he said.
