ANDRA Grand Final Preview: Paul Garbellini

We caught up with Super Street racer Paul Garbellini before this weekends ANDRA Grand Final at the Sunset Strip in Mildura.

What’s been the highlight of your Summit Sportsman series campaign this season?

The highlight of this season would have to be winning at Portland, Lisa and I have been going to Portland for a few years now and it is a great little town with awesome people and superb 1/8th mile track, so to be able to bring home my first ANDRA Christmas Tree there was pretty special.

How do you prepare for this important event? Any changes to the car?

Preparing for these events can get pretty hectic on its own but then when you add the border restrictions, driving the race car there, it being the Grand Final and me being on the points cap with two other racers it gets pretty full on.

Because we don't tow a trailer, we can only take what will fit in the car and once you put a spare wheel in, two race tyres and a swag to sleep in that doesn't leave much room. So over the years I've cut it down to just the essentials and some things for roadside repairs.
