This weekend marks round six of the 2016/2017 Hi-Q Components NZ Formula First Championship, with the championship now in its final stages drivers will be putting everything on the line this weekend.
Following a super strong performance at Manfeild, Matt Podjursky sits a mere 43 points from the lead of the championship after rocketing up to second in the standings. Bramwell King, now third, is 54 points off points leader Arran Crighton with Chris Symon fourth, a further 30 points behind King.
Last time out at Hampton Downs Bramwell King showed us how it was done, taking pole and all three race wins, while Matt Podjursky came so close to his maiden win and Reece Hendl-Cox showed great speed to finish on the podium twice.
Podjursky will be looking to make the most of the weekend and close the gap as much as he can to Crighton while King will look to redeem his championship chances after a less than ideal round four and five. Hendl-Cox, now with a comfortable 152 point lead in the Rookie Championship will be looking to build on his previous results at the track and try score the first rookie win of the season.
Headlined by the BNT NZ Touring Cars, the event is the penultimate round of the SpeedWorks Motorsport Championship. The Hi-Q Components NZ Formula First Championship supports the NZTC along with TR86’s, GTRNZ, V8 Utes, Porsche’s, Central Muscle Cars and Ssangyong Actyon Utes.
