Not really into bikes, but the TT is impressive to watch, plenty of Kiwi riders have done it over the years of course.

Over the years not to many Kiwis have made it in European racing and raced long term, plenty have done a few races then run out of $$$.

Would have been interesting if David Oxton had stuck at it, on the pace in both Formula Ford and F5000.
Brett Riley won a hand full of F3 races over a number of years, Paul Radisich never got it together in F3 but did the business in BTCC.
Mike Thackwell of course was the last to race in F1 and win a major Championship( European F2 in 1984) until Mitch came along.

I could go on and on

Of course we have had several that have gone all the way.

Yes very true, and the same goes for Scott Mclaughlin

Cheers,

Mark Petch.
He comes across as a real nice guy and he's certainly got natural pace - I'd love to be proved wrong.

Goat Boy has a lot of promise if they can keep it on the circuit!
I was having a bit of a look around and I found this site - anyone heard of this before? It has quite a lot of info on it but doesn't seem very up to date.

Haven't heard of that one before GB, and I think you're right, is it a tad out of date.

I have and it is an old site

check out the bottom right corner of the page.. copyright 2003/08. the last article was in 09. the news ticker on the front page must update itself... other than that.. the site looks like it's been untouched for years.

Pity, it looked like it might have been quite good once.

Speedstuff.co.nz was another good site that has sadly gone silent - the last article they posted was about a year ago.

Is Mike Halliday still racing in GT racing over in Europe? Last time I heard he was racing a WRT Audi R8 LMS in the Blancpain Endurance Series.

*Matt. Yes, I believe he is - still using the Audi too. I don't know what kind of results he's getting though.

Whoops his name is Matt indeed not Mike

Seems to be having an average year so far in BES with WRT. I still remember when he and Mike Parisy won a race with a Muehlner Motorsport Porsche in World GT1 last year.
