Wednesday, January 12, 2022

Twenty-seven cars have been finally confirmed for the opening round of New Zealand’s new for 2022, the Rodin Cars Super GT Series that kicks off at Highlands Park this weekend.

Created in addition to the GT series that already compete individually on both their North and South Island, the Super GT Series has been designed not to interfere with either of the more established race programmes as like the Asian Le Mans Series, it will conclude at its fourth and final round at the end of February.

Featuring amongst the declared Porsche Cup Class and GT4 cars only grid will be two Aston Martin GT8R cars ran by the Race Lab team for drivers Shane Helms in his gold and black liveried #77 car and Steve Harrison in his familiar bright yellow #78 car each photographed an an early GT race this month.

Without further confirmation, these rounds are proposed to run two half hour races over the weekend plus one one-hour race later on the Sunday.

With the Dubai 24hr now not running a Vantage GT8R class at their event this weekend, New Zealand remains the only place where you can watch these enhanced GT4 race cars actively compete.
