Meat [iV8SC15R28R29R30] ITM 500 Auckland, Pukekohe: 6-8 Nov

The overseas adventure begins...

Off to NZ to show off the category, to celebrate the pilots born on that side of the pond, to put on another great event.

Some crash damage & mechanical stuff to get clear after Gold Coast, cars to rebuild or change... back to single pilot duties...

Will PRA bounce back to the top of the charts? Are they missing the technical input of Mr Mostert to tune the toys?

Lots of stuff can happen... and usually does at this venue...

peckstar has a lot of promise if they can keep it on the circuit!
Will the stewards put their spin on things and bring out penalties never seen before and never to be seen again

Pukekohe is the only track in existence to be made better with the addition of a chicane.

Wouldn't say only.

I reckon the Chase improved Bathurst...

I don't really consider the chase a chicane though.

I mean it definitely is one, but it's still mega fast.

But remember why it was added. That makes it a chicane...

A nice track. Best bet is Prodrive and BJR.

Because of a FIA mandate re the length of Conrod Straight.

Last year's winner didn't seem so enthusiastic to have the JR trophey.

I'm sure BJR would be thrilled to have it back.

It is contract time, for both driver & sponsor...

That is a good question GTR. There is little doubt that the trophy holds considerably more significance for BJR than it does for other teams.
The engineering group will be trying very hard to make it happen it will be up to the bit which pushes pedals and holds the directional device as to whether it does or not.

I reckon Slade in the #14 machine will give it a shake.

He was quick there last year in the #47 WR dog, before the clutch gave out on the line.
