The Porter Hire International Sprintcar Series will see a number of international drivers coming down to run against our local lads. The Series will be run over three nights, and the first and third rounds will be at Western Springs on the 28th Nov, and the 5th Dec.
Brad Loyet is shipping his own car here from St Louis which is due to leave the US late next week. The Maxim Chassis #5 car will be packed into the container along with all the spares he will need to run a successful campaign here in New Zealand. “The J&D Performance engine has been rebuilt and it arrives back in the shop tomorrow, that will give us time to fit the engine into the car ready for its’ departure next week”, said Brad.
Brad has won a number of races in the US recently and includes ASCS and National Sprintcar League races. “We were leading the ASCS Series last year going into the final round, and unfortunately we crashed out and we just fell short of the mark”, said Brad.
I am really looking forward to getting back the ‘The Springs’, I love racing there and I am keen to take out the Series.
