Craig has confirmed that he will contest this year Golden Holmes North Island Endurance Series in the 2 hour race, driving an ex Mini Challenge car. He has also expressed his interest in the 1 or 3 hour races competing in a different car, but the final decision has not yet been made.
He competed in the Mini Challenge during the late 2000’s but saw this car for sale late last year and purchased it for old time sake, “it will fit well into the new 2 hour series so it will be good to get it out there” Craig said. He has only used the car once to get his eye in for the TCR car last year and it seemed to perform well.
He has considerable experience and has raced in a number of cars and classes, all of which have either been Touring or GT Cars.
Craig has been going around NZ’s tracks for a few years now and he’s excited about the new 2 hour race. He said that the race has great potential and he expects that lots of people get their cars out to play. “The Mini should be a midfield car, if there is a good group to race against in that area it will be a nice bonus”, Craig Said.
