It’s time to go racing!
It’s a weekend for the GT drivers, with Earl Bamber and Brendon Leitch in action in Dubai and Marco Giltrap continuing his Porsche Sprint Challenge Southern Europe Series title challenge in Portugal.
On home soil, two of the most significant events on the New Zealand motorsport calendar present plenty of track action, with the Skope Classic at Ruapuna and the fourth round of the Super Sprint Motorsport New Zealand Championship at Hampton Downs.
