' Sixteen of New Zealand’s top racing drivers are all set to race in the 66th New Zealand Grand Prix this weekend and there’s huge interest in what is being billed as an historic Race of Champions.

With the pandemic travel restrictions accounting for the usual international entrants, it’s turned into an all-Kiwi affair. It is arguably the most interesting field in a New Zealand Grand Prix for a generation with the best of the past, present and future all on the grid for the big race.

......
That field includes Shane van Gisbergen and André Heimgartner from Supercars, former GP winners Greg Murphy and Daniel Gaunt, former A1GP Team New Zealand driver Chris van Der Drift, Brendon and Damon Leitch and a significant group of young racers who represent the best young racing talent in New Zealand today.

“Pretty awesome,” said van Gisbergen.
“Just been chipping away all weekend, getting closer, and the guys have done an awesome job there - but couldn’t quite nail the perfect laps.”
“Still a fair bit left in it but it’s awesome to be here.”

Matthew Payne has claimed New Zealand’s Toyota Gazoo Racing Series title after winning five of the last six races.


In all nine races this season Payne was ultra-consistent, he never finished outside of the top three positions and duly became the deserved champion.

Payne was the most dominant champion in several seasons and joins the impressive list of former winners including McLaren Formula 1 driver Lando Norris, Aston Martin F1 driver Lance Stroll, former FIA Formula 3 champion Robert Schwarzman and Super2 Series winner Thomas Randle.



Shame SVG wasnt able to run the full series ....
