Heart of Racing - New Zealand Endurance Series Champions!

Saturday, November 07, 2020


Their New Zealand GT Endurance adventure started with a race win for the Aston Martin Racing V8 Vantage GT3 of Darren Kelly and Alex Riberas in September and it shall end with a Championship race winning performance earlier this morning.

Not the first 2019 specification AMR Vantage GT3 to hit the race track in the Australasia racing theatre but certainly the first to grace the best race tracks that New Zealand’s North and South Island have to offer, the Starship Foundation supporting race effort went onto to secure the South Island Series title with a trio of podium finishes.

Not quite so effective in the North Island Series, the #52 car returned to the Hampton Downs circuit to compete in today’s ‘winner takes all’ three-hour endurance race which they did with a lights to flag win, having taken pole position earlier and eventually finishing a clear lap ahead of their closest rivals.

Many congratulations to all concerned and can’t wait to hear of any racing ambitions down under in 2021!!
