Mitch Evans to make NZ SuperTourers debut

Posted in News

Single-seater racing star in one of Europe’s top categories Mitch Evans, will be making his ‘tin top’ racing debut in an NZ SuperTourer at the Rush Security Waikato 250 NZ Motor Cup at Hampton Downs over January 31–February 1, 2015.

As the younger brother of the current NZ SuperTourer points leader, Simon Evans, Mitch is excited to get behind the wheel of something so different to what he’s used to.

“I’m just out there to have fun and see how I go. I’ve never raced a touring car before, so no doubt I’ll have to learn a few things along the way,” Evans says.

Mitch took Simon’s Smeg Commodore for a test spin a few weeks back, impressing Simon with his grip on SuperTourer racing.

“On old tyres, he actually put down some pretty reasonable times. I hope he’ll go good. Just not too good! I’ve got a championship to try and win!” Simon says.

If you want to see Mitch in action, you can get an adult weekend pass for $50, otherwise Saturday will cost you $30, and Sunday will cost $40. Discounts for students (under 18 with ID) and senior citizens are available. Kids under 13 are able to get in for free.
