TRS gains Formula Regional status

https://www.velocitynews.co.nz/trs-b...-championship/

" “Being a Formula Regional championship comes with the Super License points, and now we get the full amount of super license points, says Toyota Gazoo Racing New Zealand Manager Nicolas Caillol.

“This means the winner of the championship gets 18 points. When you look at it, 18 points is almost 50 per cent of the points required to get the Formula 1 super license, so it’s a good amount of points you can get towards that.”

The January timing of the series also means most drivers will have an open schedule to come and compete, should they wish.

“Because our championship is run outside of any other championship period you can accumulate two years [of points] in one year,” Caillol says. "

I might have to fire up the ol Rupertel ...

Pity noone over here offered to host a round or two, I'd travel for this.

Quali and Race 1 yesterday. Callum Hedge on pole and took the race win.

For the life of me couldn't find the Sky coverage but it was hiding in plain sight.

Nothing about TRS or Formula Regional, it was billed as Super Sprint NZ Championship. Thought that was sprint cars or drifting - duh! Different promoter this year maybe wanting to stamp his point of difference on it. Only result in reduced audience though I would think!

Anyway day two kicks of with FROC quali at 10am nz time Race 2 at 1pm and the feature race at 4pm.

Sky 5 coverage from 10am to 5pm.

Be interesting to see how day 2 shakes out.

Another pole for Hedges on Saturday at Teretonga. Charlie Wurz gets his first race win though.

https://talkmotorsport.co.nz/singles...n-new-zealand/

Tomorrow sees Q2 plus reverse grid Race 2, then the feature race.

The Invercargill weather even in midsummer can be notoriously fickle, however the forecast is looking reasonable.

Hedges has a great drive to win reverse grid race from grid 7 in challenging conditions.

Such a shame with that level of drivers. I guess they go to the Middle East series now.

Not sure what's up. Hopefully just a one off glitch.

Anyway the whole circus crosses Cook Strait to the North Island and Round 3 at Manfeild Circuit Chris Amon.

Three more drivers for Manfeild this weekend. Brit Louis Foster, Irishman Adam Fitzgerald and Kiwi Billy Fraser. Good talents there who should slot into the top half of the field, I would think. Quick overview of the weekend:-

Looks like a pretty wet day tomorrow, could make things interesting...

Somehow I would doubt it. It's been well outdone by series using much more relevant tracks that are more accessible.
