As soon as I posted the Aussie video, Kiwis wanted one of their own… so I made it twice as long, and possibly twice as good. Getting to ride in a Fire One – chase vehicle for the V8 Utes race as a fire marshal was one of the most incredible things I’ve ever done in my life. Not to say that doing flag marshalling or working rescue wasn’t short of amazing either. New Zealand provided me with my education when it comes to marshalling, and over one racing season I took full advantage of all the racing series there to absorb as much as I could. I participated in such racing series as Tasman Revival, Formula 5000, New Zealand Festival of Speed Celebrating BMW /M Motorsports, Toyota Racing Series, NZV8’s, V8 Utes, V8 Supertourers, V8 Supercars, a variety of classic Mini series, Central Muscle Club, Auckland and Taupo car club racing, etc. I’ve even done the New Zealand Grand Prix
I’m looking forward to going back there… again and again!
