Hi my name is Leo Cartwright from the Latrobe Valley in Victoria Australia, I am a RAR Assessor with the Australisian Road Rescue organisation (ARRO) This year alone I traveled to Nelson New Zealand in Feburary, will attend the Australisian Challenge this coming May in Queensland and then the World titles in Cardiff, Wales UK this coming July. I hope to pass on some information after the events. last week I attended the Holden training grounds where new vehicles were cushed at the B piller, then cut and rammed, both Halmatro and Lucus hydrolics were used and both were able to cut these newer metals in these vehicles. some of the relieve cuts at the bottom of the A piller near the foot well may need some future work as this became time consuming which once done with little effort.
