Ladies & Gentlemen, start your engines: 2016-17 Season about to start

By Andrew Nugent | 25 August, 2016 | Uncategorised

The new season is upon us with the first round at Hampton Downs on September 10th and 11th.

The BMW Race Series is a 7 round championship this season – the most rounds of any championship in NZ. The season schedule is as follows:

Additionally there is the possibility of racing with the NZ GT’s at Tony Quins Hampton Downs 101 in October.

During the off season we had substantial repairs to do to the car, led by the need to repair the damage from the broken prop shaft, which meant stripping the car back to the bare body shell, repairing and repainting, then a complete re-assemble of the car. We have also carried out a little bit of tuning to try to improve front grip.

Unfortunately there are no track test days available before the season start so we have entered the car in the Auckland Car Club meeting on Saturday 3rd September to test the car out.

A new oil supplier this season in Motul. Many thanks to Chris at Motul for your support.
