You're right there. These people must love it. I can see why you do. It gives you satisfaction to do that job. The truckies must love doing it for a race team. Good luck in Oz mate

I am liking this thread. It’s good to be reminded not just of the race team, but those who transport it to the races too. Without them, it would be harder, so here’s to them

Looks impressive.

However, it's amazing to think DJR/DJRTP made do with their ~25 year old trailer; and still don't need a B-Tripple/tent-annex thingy set-up to keep them at the top of the series.

Every single team in pit lane has at least one tent-annex thingy, including DJRTP that runs a minimum of 2 tent-annex thingys at each event.

It’s not for hospitality!

Instead for keeping wheels and tyres plus tyre racks, and some tools/parts for the cars.
Saves going in and out of the transporter, especially since the lower level of the truck is rarely at ground level... except possibly behind the pits at Sandown..

What are the covers for on the rear under trays of the cars? Supercars teams cant hide anything, can they?

I assumed it was to prevent any possible fluid leaks on their equipment.

Once they're in the garage and the race meeting has started they're prevented from covering or screening but that doesn't apply in the truck etc. Teams have been using similar covers for years now - prevents others from taking easy shots up under the cars and see what springs/dampers etc they're running.

Well teams are always reluctant to reveal secrets. So nice ingenuity there
