Drivers Simon Gilbertson and John McIntyre (GilbertsonJMR Porsche 991 MR) head to the second round of the North Island Endurance Series currently second in the three round series. After a stellar performance at round one at Hampton Downs three weeks prior, the pair are confident of a top result at Pukekohe Raceway. However the Hampton Downs race result is under protest and the fledgling team may just get their first win if the results are amended.
“It’s fantastic to have CRC Speedshow as our naming rights sponsor for the weekend, joining our existing family of Sponsors. I have been a big supporter of CRC Speedshow and have exhibited many times over the past 10 years.
“We are really hitting our straps as a team and driver pairing, so we hope for a bit more of that lovely Pukekohe rain to help us mix it up with the more powerful GT3 cars and Hybrid Commodores” commented John McIntyre.
The North and South Island Endurance Series’ have enjoyed continual growth over recent seasons and now see some of NZ’s best teams, drivers and endurance machinery gridding up at each meeting. This Saturday over 25 cars will take on the 3 Hour race at the high speed South Auckland circuit.
