Bush Telegraph - - Entertainment & Dining - By DAVE MUR­DOCH

On Novem­ber 24 Team Lowe Rac­ing, brother and sis­ter duo Max (55p) and Holly (56p) Lowe from Te-Re­hunga, trav­elled to Gis­borne to com­pete in a Speed­way Mini-stock cham­pi­onship known as the Gizzy 100.

This meet­ing had young driv­ers from all over the North Is­land com­pet­ing for two ti­tles, one be­ing the senior cham­pion (15 and 16-year-olds) and the other be­ing the ju­nior cham­pion (14, 13 and 12-year-old group.)

Af­ter three tough races in which Max had a fourth, a third and a win, with the high­est points he took the ju­nior ti­tle. Af­ter two years of rac­ing this is Max’s first cham­pi­onship ti­tle.

Max and Holly race at tracks all over the North Is­land such as Palmer­ston North (their home track), Wan­ganui, Welling­ton, Hawke’s Bay, Ro­torua and Gis­borne. This sum­mer they are also rac­ing in Dunedin and Cromwell. Max has a pas­sion for race cars and en­gi­neer­ing and tries to do much of the main­te­nance and re­pairs him­self on both cars. He hopes to one day be part of a pro­fes­sional rac­ing team.

The team couldn’t do this amount of rac­ing with­out the sup­port from their spon­sors such as An­der­son Auto Elec­tri­cal Dan­nevirke, Scrimshaw and Ran­som En­gi­neers Dan­nevirke and Ash Air NZ.

Holly and Max share the win­ner’s rib­bon.
