2009

  • Summary

    In the year that was driven by the ‘Save the Turbos Campaign’ Turbos fans and partners rallied behind the team in order to save it from being dropped from the competition on the back of financial difficulties and poor results.

    The team responded in the best possible manner by piecing together their most successful season to date and finishing a respectable 11th out of 14. With four wins and going very close to winning more the Turbos were beginning to prove that they were in the competition for a reason.
