Endurance Championship Finale

The series finale of both the South Island and North Island endurance series’ took place at Hampton Downs with some of the country’s finest cars competing for their national crowns and also against each region.

The main highlight and feature race of the weekend was the 3hour endurance race which sawJohn McIntyre and Inky Tulloch take the win and also the championship as they cruised home with over a laps lead on the second placed Smeg Team.

The race was full of incident as over 10 cars failed to make the pit lane exit in time to make the grid!  This made for a disjointed grid and drama from the start as some of the front runners had to make their way through the field from a pit lane start.

The biggest hit of the day came from the McFarlane team as team Porsche crashed hard into the wall on the front straight while overtaking slower traffic.  This brought out an extended safety car period but after it was all clear to go the 222 Corvette could nurse the final stint to take the win.
