On March 15th 2014 Chris Tolomeo began his racing career. 2 years in the making with fabrication setbacks & the usual teething problems when embarking on a project of such, Chris’s dream build was finally completed.
After doing a few test and tunes and putting down a lot of consistent low 10 second passes at the end of last year we were happy with the set up & decided not to push it any harder for now!
Jammboree 15/03/2014 at Sydney drags was the place, the first pass of 10:001 @ 135 mph to say that we was stoked was an understatement. Second qualifier Chris ran an amazing 9:983@136mph which makes him now the fastest BA stock internal xr6t ute in Australia.
After having good reaction times and running close to the dial Chris Tolomeo got to the finals & unfortunately he just missed out but became runner up. We here at CMS are all very proud and happy in firstly for Chris having given us the opportunity in show casing what we could offer him & having his xr6t ute representing CMS at such an well published event at Jamboree.
Chris personally would like to thank CMS, Motorsport connections, Process West Intercoolers, ALS Race Glides for all of the work & countless hours invested then finally his family & friends for the ongoing support in make this all worth it.
And from me a first for a 9 sec pass & two the fastest std internal BA ute in the country, this is just a small taste of what’s install in the CMS stable!
