The Nexen Tyre Mazda Racing Series is shaping up to have a spectacular season. With plenty of down time, cars have been tidied up and new builds have reached record levels. The North Island series looks to be fielding grids in the vicinity of 30 cars with the South Island adding an additional 12.
“We’re all really excited” says committee spokesperson Steve Spear. “We just want to get back together and get some good laps in. We can’t wait to welcome new drivers to the club and the addition of a dedicated South Island series shows what a strong class this has become”.
“Every one is eager to blow off the cobwebs and go racing” he concludes.
