New Zealand Nationals
18-19 February, 2017 - Cristchurch
The New Zealand Nationals for 2017 were once again held at Ruapuna raceway in Christchurch.
The meeting was rain affected and so there was only time for two qualifiers.
I managed to qualify in first position setting a new qualifying track record.
Jayden Duthie, also driving Infinity qualified in 4th.
In the final the car was perfect and I held the lead from start to finish. I opted to change tires halfway which proved to be a great strategy.
Jayden Duthie was running in third for most of the race but unfortunately ran into problems meaning an early retirement.
I’m really happy to deserve this title… Flag to flag victory always have a special “taste”; thanks to Infinity and all the people that helped me.
The full results are as follows:
1st – Luke Duthie (Infinity)
2nd – Scott Robinson
3rd – Daniel Burrows
4th – Trevor Winter
5th – Andrew Kirk
6th – Pj Jones
7th – Bev Winter
8th – Jayden Duthie (Infinity)
9th – Scott McCreanor
10th – Mark Johnston
See you next races
