The season starts proper at the end of August.
This is the first year of 24redracing so the team is very excited about the road in front of us.
It was supposed to anyway till Jacinda said NO!
Below are the scheduled series we plan to run in.
Ssangyong Ute Series
Nikolas Lowndes who was the 2019/20 scholarship winner is driving ute #24. Nik hails from Wellington and has been involved in motorsport since his late teens. We have also teamed up in the utes with the world-famous Creme insurance team.
2kCup North Island Series
Our sister company Store Rite Logistics is the naming right sponsor of 2k Cup North Island for the 20/21 season.
We also are running a 3 car team in the series with Chris O’Driscoll driving #24, a Honda Integra DC5.

And then we don’t know what we are doing with this car class…..
Mark Mallard and Chris O’Driscoll have purchased a Holden Commodore but unsure what events it will be entered in to. The plan is to make James Watson come out of early retirement and do some enduro events.
In October we have a 2 car team entered in the B+H.
Nik Lowndes, Alan Lowndes, Mathew Randell, and Skippy will be driving the Levin and after last year’s experience will be looking for a top 5 finish.
And in car two the Dc5 Integra, the formidable partnership of the 70s is back with the name Leonard and Sprague making a return to Pukekohe. Mark Leonard, son of Leo and Peter Sprague, the grandson of Ernie will team up and relive some memories. Both guys have a lot of experience themselves but haven’t done a lot of racing in recent years so are keen to get race fit and catch the bug again. We are hoping Leo will be there to spin the spanners and give some pointers. Rumour has it the team is booked into the same Hotel the Leo and Ernie used to stay at.
B+H 1 hour
Chris will be running the DC2 and Mark Mallard is likely to run the commodore.
