Pukekohe protagonist confident of more podiums in New Zealand

The Virgin Australia Supercars Championship heads across the ditch this weekend for the annual ITM Auckland Supersprint at the legendary Pukekohe Park.

New Zealand’s own Shane van Gisbergen, the 2016 Supercars Champion, says he relishes the extra family support when racing at his hometown track and hopes he can tap back into that winning formula, he has had there so often.

After securing his first-ever podium earlier this year Penrite Racing driver Anton de Pasquale has gone from strength to strength finishing on the podium again last round and he’s confident he can maintain that form in New Zealand.

All the action from the ITM Auckland SuperSprint kicks off this Friday with Practice 1 at 12:05 pm local time.
