CRC Speedshow back Leading Porsche for Pukekohe

JMRGilbertson - SpeedhowCRC Speedshow organisers will become the naming rights Sponsor of the GilbertsonJMR Porsche 991 MR at this weekend’s second round of the North Island Endurance Series at Pukekohe.

Drivers Simon Gilbertson and John McIntyre are currently second in the three round series after a stellar performance at round one at Hampton Downs three weeks prior. However the race result is under protest and the fledgling team may just get their first Win if the results are amended.

Either way, the team and drivers welcome the support of CRC Speedshow for this important Pukekohe Round.

“It’s fantastic to have CRC Speedshow as our naming rights sponsor for the weekend, joining our existing family of Sponsors. I have been a big supporter of CRC Speedshow and have exhibited many times over the past 10 years.

This weekend we will bring some more attention to the show by way of the signage on the car captured during the LIVE stream coverage thanks to The Fast Files. We are really hitting our straps as a team and driver pairing, so we hope for a bit more of that lovely Pukekohe rain to help us mix it up with the more powerful GT3 cars and Hybrid Commodores” commented John McIntyre.

The North and South Island Endurance Series' have enjoyed continual growth over recent seasons and now see some of NZ’s best teams, drivers and endurance machinery gridding up at each meeting. This Saturday over 25 cars will take on the 3 Hour race at the high speed South Auckland circuit.

Fans will be able to tune in live on The Fast Files Youtube Channel from 9AM this Saturday and see all of the action as it unfolds.
