TFM Ferrari at Hampton Downs 6 Hour & Speedshow Charity Karting

First race in the TFM 'Prancing Horse'
Hampton Downs 6 Hour preview

Hampton Downs hosts its annual 6 Hour race this Saturday (July 26) and I'm excited to be joining the new Trass Family Motorsport team for the event.

Robin Gray and I will pair up for the 6 Hour with Team Owner Gerald Trass tackling the One Hour race held on the same day. Both Robin and Gerald are rookies to motorsport and I've enjoyed coaching them recently - now I'll have two roles for TFM and we are focussed on the win against a tough grid of opponents.

Stiff competition will come from the likes of from my old V8 SuperTourers team mate, John McIntyre, in a Porsche GT3, a newer Ferrari 458 Challenge and a bunch of other Porsches, GTs, touring cars and sports cars.

Nevertheless, TFM and I look forward to taking it to them, wheel to wheel. Make sure you call down to our pit and say "g'day" if you make it to the track!

Karting for Prostate Cancer
A dozen Kiwi drivers face off at the CRC Speedshow

I was honoured to be asked to compete in the CRC Speedshow's 'Celebrity' Charity Kart event last weekend, where myself and a dozen other Kiwi drivers nominated a charity and raced our butts off in a battle of the motorsport codes.

The team at Fineline Signs and I whipped up a custom decal kit and looked the part as we battled the pouring rain on slick tyres on Saturday afternoon.

Unfortunately we didn't manage to win the $500 charity donation but it was a fun and memorable experience nonetheless. A big thank you to Scotty Fountain for the use of his machine and luckily I returned it without a scratch!

Looking Back
Fastway Porsche vs. Audi R8

Take a look back to the Phillip Island 101, where I enjoyed a bit of sparring with the Audi R8 GT3 of Nathan Antunes and Rod Salmon.

A superb event despite our own troubles!

Sponsor Profile
R Redpath Limited

Since 2008 I've enjoyed the loyal support of Christchurch's Gayle & Tony Saunders, and the team at R Redpath Limited.

For over 65 years Redpaths remains one of the largest independent wholesalers of electrical supplies in the South Island.

Their website is fully geared for online shopping as well as having cool promotions, the popular Circuit Breaker magazine and key info for Tradies and customers alike.
