Rachael Archer heads into GNCC WXC Round 12 Ironman this weekend standing solid 2nd in Championship

Rachael Archer heads into GNCC WXC Round 12 of 13 this weekend standing solid 2nd in Championship having completed amazing run of 4 consecutive wins from last 4 Rounds. Determined to make final races count, Archer has set goal of continuing winning streak at the 26th Annual Yamaha Racing Ironman GNCC.

In what must be most drawn out WXC season which started way back on February 23 at Big Buck, then cut to stand-still at Round 3 The General on March 15th, to resume for long haul of following 10 Rounds on May 17th to Final Round 13 Buckwheat 100 on November 8th.

If anything, Rachael has thrived on change of schedule, gaining edge over competition to up her game on and off track. Known for continual assessment on where improvements need to made, refine bike-settings and bank on familiarity of tracks raced in debut season ‘019, Rachael has proved force to be reckoned with heading into Final Races.

Rachael: ‘I have 2nd locked up, just need to finish in top 3 in both races. But my goal is to win the next 3 to get 6 in a row’. 

With this weekend’s GNCC dedicated to honor October’s Breast Cancer Awareness Month, number plate background codes will be relaxed as racers are encouraged to run pink backgrounds. One initiative, Rachael will surely take pride in supporting.
