Hansford 2nd in Pro Am for 2017

Ryan Hansford in his Peters Motorsport prepared Multispares Torana has finished 2nd in the Pro Am class and 4th overall in his debut season of Touring Car Masters.

Around the tight and tricky street circuit in Newcastle Ryan got the weekend underway with blistering pace, quickest in both practice sessions before putting in one of his best laps of the year to take his first pole position.

“All season the team and I have been turning up to the tracks not knowing the right ratio to put in but this time around it was a level playing field so everyone was guessing. …

Hansford to finish strongly in Newcastle

Ryan Hansford and his Multispares Torana will hit the track around the streets of Newcastle this Friday for the final round of the 2017 Touring Car Masters series. (TCM)
It has been a brilliant first season in TCM for the Multispares racing team.

With uncertainty regarding the direction of Ute racing in Australia after 3 seasons in V8 Utes, it was decided in February to change direction. TCM is very popular; the cars are classic and the fit felt right for the team, Multispares and its customers.

Peters Motorsport quickly scoured the country and purchased the ex Carey McMahon SLR5000 which had undergone …

Hansford heads to Sandown

Ryan Hansford and the Multispares Torana head to Melbourne’s Sandown Raceway next weekend for round 5 of the 2017 Touring Car Masters series.

Round 4 was held at Queensland Raceway in late July with Ryan finishing the weekend in an epic battle for a race win with Eddie Abelnica in a round that produced some of the best close racing so far this season.

Like Queensland Raceway, Sandown should provide terrific racing with the Ford Falcon of Abelnica and the Mustang of Steve Johnson having the legs down the straights but the Torana’s of Hansford, Bowe and Gomersell having the handling and …

Hansford looking to home track advantage

Multispares Racing and Ryan Hansford head to Queensland Raceway in 10 days’ time for round 4 of the 2017 Touring Car Masters series (TCM).
The Peters Motorsport team who look after the mighty Multispares Torana are based in Redcliffe north of Brisbane, just an hour’s drive from Queensland Raceway (QR) where they do all their testing.

With a hectic schedule running cars in both the TCM and V8 Utes this year, the team have given the Torana the once over and will test the 5.0L SLR 5000 this week to ensure the steering pump and steering rack have been correctly rebuilt after …

Hansford now 2nd in Touring Car Masters

After a successful round 2 of the Touring Car Master’s series at Winton Raceway recently, Ryan Hansford and the Multispares have moved to second in the Pro Am series points.
After making the Torana more comfortable for Ryan to drive he came out blazingly fast in the wet practice sessions on the Friday some 1.8 secs faster than second placed Steve Johnson. Ryan’s smooth driving style combined with the set-up of the Torana with its new wet tyres meant he was in total control of the 600+bhp SLR5000.

After the drenching on Friday the teams had a dry track for qualifying and …

Torana modified to suit Hansford

Round 2 of the 2017 Touring Car Masters series will be run this weekend, May 19 – 21 at Victoria’s Winton Motor Raceway.
After a successful first round in Adelaide for the Clipsal 500 where Ryan Hansford qualified third, the Multispares Racing Torana has been back to the Peters Motorsport workshop where the crew have put in a new pedal box and moved the seat so Ryan can drive the car without being completely cramped and finishing races with “pins and needles”.

In addition, the team have found a little in the set-up of the Torana, and during a test last week …

Hansford fast around the streets of Adelaide

Just three weeks out from the Clipsal 500 in Adelaide, Peters Motorsport and Multispares made a change in direction.
After racing in the Australian V8 Ute series for several years, they decided the popular Touring Car Masters series (TCM) was a perfect fit for the team, Multispares and most importantly the Multispares customers.
 

With little time and TCM cars for sale they settled on the ex Carey McMahon Torana SLR5000. The Torana was transported back to Brisbane from Sydney, and with 10 days to go, checked over in the workshop, then tested at Queensland Raceway, given a new look thanks to vinyl …
