Posted November 11, 2018 10:31:32 The Harley Davidson Team has celebrated its 50th anniversary with a big bang at its first race.
The Harley Davidson race team is celebrating the 50th Anniversary of its debut at the Dunlop Harleys Australian Open on November 12.
The team has been racing at Dunlombe, near Townsville, for the last 10 years, and will continue to compete in Australia, New Zealand and the United Kingdom.
“We have been racing on and off the road for the past 20 years.
It’s been a big time for us,” Harley Davidson Australian team driver Sam Miller said.”
It’s been an amazing ride.
We’re looking forward to another great run.”
Miller said his team was pleased to have returned to the Dunmow Circuit for the first time since its maiden outing in 2013.
“This is a good feeling to get back out there again and be able to race on the same course as the Dunlap Harleys,” Miller said of the course at the heart of the Dunlambe circuit.
“I’ve got a lot of friends on this team, so it’s nice to be able go back to Dunlobes with them.”
The Dunlolab is a fantastic track and we’re excited to be racing there again.
“Miller and team leader Shane Williams were joined by fellow driver Nicki Suggles, who won the Dunlot Cup in 2014.
Miller said he was very proud to be a part of Harley Davidson racing again, and that he was looking forward on this run.”
When you come back from Australia and then you’ve been racing for 10 years and then come back to the same track, it’s pretty special,” Miller told News.
You feel like you’re back in the day.
“At the same time, it was a big experience, and we’ve had a great time, so hopefully we can get back to racing as soon as possible.”
The team was a strong favourite for the DunLobes title in the Dunlawes Cup before a late withdrawal forced the team to drop out of contention.
“To come back for the second time and win the Dunlbills, it is a real honour,” Miller added.
“There was a lot riding on the car, and when it’s the same car it’s going to be really hard.”
But I think it’s a good thing we got to get the same people back on board and we will have a good run.
