Smoothline has your needs covered
Smoothline provides rally teams with high-quality, succinct directions that are easy to digest. At Smoothline we believe Stage Notes are more than a set of directions, rather they are what bonds a driver, a co-driver and a car. Our notes are crafted by Steve Glenney and Bernie Webb, one of the most successful pairings in Australian Rallying. They are also available to provide backup support by listening and assisting you wherever possible. Tapping into Steve and Bernie’s experience through Smoothline can give you the confidence to safely perform at your best while enjoying the experience.
Steve Glenney is widely regarded as the fastest and most versatile driver in Australian Motorsport. Steve has recorded wins at National and International level in Circuit Racing and Rallying (both gravel and tarmac) and RallyCross, including the pinnacle of Australian Rallying, Targa Tasmania. Equally comfortable on a racetrack or in the forest, no other driver (privateer or factory backed) has achieved comparable success in these forms of motor racing in Australia.
Steve began his motorsport career in 2001, competing in motorkhanas and hillclimbs in his road car, a HSV Commodore, before swapping into a Nissan Skyline GTR for his first tarmac rally (the 2002 Rally Tasmania). Steve’s first major result came the following year with a 2nd outright placing in Targa Tasmania.
In 2004 Steve turned his attention to the Australian Rally Championship (ARC), entering and winning the inaugural Subaru RS Challenge (one make series). Steve teamed up with Smoothline co-contributor Bernie Webb the following year to take out the ARC Privateer’s championship. the pair’s first outright ARC win came in the 2006 Rally South Australia, before their attention was turned back to the tarmac. A string of outright victories came in the next few years including the 2008 Rally Tasmania, Targa Tasmania and Adelaide Hills Rally, 2009 Targa Wrest Point and 2010 Rally Tasmania.
Bernie Webb is one of Australia’s best known and most accomplished co-drivers. Having worked with more than 35 drivers over the last 20 years, Bernie’s list of successes includes multiple wins in national and international rallies on both gravel and tarmac.
Bernie began his career in 1997, entering NSW State Championship events in a Mazda RX2, before first taking on the ARC in 2001. An invitation to compete in Targa Tasmania came in 2002 signaling the commencement of Bernie’s association with tarmac rallying.
Bernie’s first major result came in 2004, with an outright win in the NSW Rally Championship which was quickly followed by a podium finish in the inaugural Targa West the next year. In 2005 Bernie began working with Smoothline co-author Steve Glenney, the pair taking out the ARC Privateers’ Championship in their first year together.
Since this time Bernie has taken outright honours in a large number of national and international rallies on both gravel and tarmac as well as being contracted to factory-backed teams under the Mitsubishi and Mazda banners. Today he works alongside Steve Glenney to produce Smoothline Stage Notes, coaches a list of other teams and continues to compete at the highest level in Australian rallying.
