They will be racing at Manfeild in April. Photo: LAURA WALTERS ' At the end of the day we'll put stars in very fast cars and that'll be enough entertainment in itself. ' Paul Radisich, chief executive If you like fast cars, motorsport stars and tight competition, then New Zealand's new V8 racing series is for you. The V8SuperTourers is a Kiwi version of the Australian-born V8SuperCars, fronted by two-time world champion Paul Radisich who has been appointed the V8Super- Tourers chief executive. Radisich said New Zealand needed a racing series similar to the Australian V8s. This is New Zealand's answer to V8Supercars.'' The series would kick off in February with 16 teams racing the purpose-built cars, with room to expand the field to 20. At the moment the cars were being designed in Australia, put together, taken apart, and sent across the ditch to their teams. The teams would get their final parts soon and a test run would be held on February 10. This meant all of the teams would race identical cars, and have the same amount of time to test them. The only difference was some of the cars sported a Holden body, and some represented Ford. Radisich said the way the series was designed meant it would come down to drivers finding the sweet spot'' in their cars' controls. And when it came to drivers there was no lack of experience. Greg Murphy, Craig Baird, John McIn- tyre, Kayne Scott, Andy Booth, and Paul Manuel were among some of the names who signed up for the series' first year. At the end of the day we'll put stars in very fast cars and that'll be enough entertainment in itself,'' Radisich said. The cars have seven-litre engines, and 575 horsepower. New Zealand's V8SuperTourers have the ability to reach speeds of well over 200kmh, even though New Zealand circuits would not accom- modate this sort of speed. Radisich, who had raced in tracks around the world, said he was look- ing forward to being back in New Zealand with his wife and two girls. I haven't lived at home for well over 20 years.'' He said he was also looking for- ward to the competition on Manfeild's short circuit, which he always enjoyed coming back to. It's great to see Manfeild's keep- ing up with things.'' While it was his first time co- ordinating and organising a series, Radisich's 30 years of motorsport experience and a lifetime of motorsport interest should put him in a good position to launch the V8SuperTourers. He said he was moving on to a new phase in his career, and did not have plans to move back into the racing circuit, but that could change. Never say never,'' he said. For now the series would stay in New Zealand. However, there had been a couple of countries interested in the con- cept of New Zealand's newest petrol- powered competition. V8SuperTourers kicks off at Hampton Downs on February 17, and comes to Manfeild at the end of April. Manfeild chief executive Heather Verry said it was exciting for Manfeild to host the V8Super- Tourers. The V8SuperTourer concept has been the talk of motor-racing circles for some time and everyone is extremely keen to see the cars in action.'' The event would be good for the region, she said. And it was proof that Manfeild's upgraded infra- structure was drawing competitions to the events centre. We are now starting to see the fruits of our labour,'' she said.
