Re: 33/Sud race on youtube
Pukekohe isn't the longest track at 1.75 mile in length. Its design is compromised to fit in with a horse racing track as well
The back straight is long enough to strretch the legs on most cars. The right hand turn over the hill coming onto the start-finish straight is a real challenge, with some nasty Armco barriers waiting for the unwary !! One of our guys wrote off a Sud there 2-3 years ago - very nasty carner on a bad day. but a real challenge !!
We are eagerly awaiting the opening of a new circuit at Hampton Downs, 75km south of Auckland which is being constructed right now. It's not often one gets a new track to play on !!
Being the summer in this part of the world, its racing season. Our series ran at Taupo (Central North Island) two weeks ago, and we got to use the full A1GP circuit, which was a real blast !!
I am sure that the boys will put up a video of some of that on the Blip.Tv site in due course.
Cheers for now
