New Zealand V8 Supertourers

2012 has been my most adventurous season to date… As much as I’d love to out-do it next year the reality will be some sort of a toned down version. Luckily I have signed up for the 12 hours of Bathurst which promises to be a very exciting GT endurance race in Australia, however between that event in February and the Australian F1 Grand Prix at Albert Park in March, there’s a huge amount of time to kill. So I’ve made a decision to revisit Auckland for a few weeks. Call it New Zealand part II.

The plan as of now is of course to do the V8 Supertourers who should have their season opening at Hampton Downs just a week after the Bathurst event. I’m really looking forward to another Air New Zealand 12 days of Christmas sale so I can fill my days in Kiwi land with quick trip around the country, especially with a visit to the South Island – something I missed out on earlier this year. I would really like to visit Dunedin and Queenstown. Perhaps another trip to Manfeild for Toyota Racing Series, and definitely Taupo. 2013 will be great!
