NZ Performance Car - - Circuit Talk -

Eric Budd’s Toy­ota Levin — a for­mer fea­ture car in NZ Per­for­mance Car mag­a­zine — is once again prov­ing to be the ma­chine to beat in the Trade­zone GTRNZ GT3 cat­e­gory, ar­guably the most com­pet­i­tive of the se­ries’ four classes.

For­mer cham­pion Budd, who was de­throned last sea­son by Bernard Ver­ryt’s Mus­tang, is back in the driv­ing seat in the class this sea­son, and with three rounds done he held a 50-point ad­van­tage over Mau­rice Shap­ley, with Shane Whitely in hot pur­suit in third place.

The GTRNZ field started the sea­son with back-to-back rounds at the Bruce McLaren Mo­tor­sport Park, Taupo, be­fore head­ing to the NZ Mo­tor Cup meet­ing at the Speed­works Pre­mier Mo­tor­sport Cham­pi­onship meet­ing at Hamp­ton Downs. The pop­u­lar se­ries will also fea­ture at the New Zealand Grand Prix at Man­feild, on 11 - 12 Fe­bru­ary.
