When you’ve got an event where all of those in attendance could be the headline act, it’s hard to be blown away by just one big name. However, the 2016 event may be the one that changes that, as it is said that Kiwi motorsport icon Scott Dixon is to headline the Giltrap Prestige–backed Legends of Speed event, being held on November 25 at Auckland’s Vector Arena.
Legends of Speed is a Kiwi motorsport superstar haven, with Earl Bamber, Greg Murphy, Brendon Hartley, Hayden Paddon, and now the recently announced Scott Dixon, all to be showcased at the 2016 event, with never-seen-before footage and interviews. Alongside current motorsport icons, the event will showcase the legends of yesteryear and the progression of New Zealand and Kiwi motorsport on a global scale.
Scott Dixon has had an outstanding career since joining Chip Ganassi Racing at the beginning of his IndyCar career, and has won the IndyCar championship in 2003, 2008, 2013, and 2015. Scott also took out the 92nd Indianapolis 500 in 2008, from pole position. With 38 wins, Scott is the leading driver in the current IndyCar series, so to have him back on home soil to promote New Zealand motorsport and its athletes is a real treat.
