It’s finally here. We have our first race weekend of Kiwis competing abroad for 2024.
The year shakes up to be a massive one for New Zealanders overseas, with the Velocity News calendar showing there are international events featuring at least one Kiwi right up until the last week of November. That’s before all driver announcements have even been made!
We begin to work into the year with Nick Cassidy and Mitch Evans’s highly-anticipated Formula E season opener in Mexico, the two now running as teammates for Jaguar TCS Racing.
