Prowear NZ Superlap: lap times are up!

16 December, 2015

The third round of the Prowear NZ Superlap series, held December 12–13, was an intense one. We’ve just had everyone’s fastest lap times come through, so take a look. Pukekohe Park Raceway had several obstacles to overcome for both the pros and the rookies, but in the end everyone progressed throughout the weekend. We’ll see you at the next round, down at the Bruce McLaren Motorsport Park in Taupo, January 9–10. 

The Jowett Jupiter turns 70

John Ball has always enjoyed tinkering with old boats and cars. He’s old enough to think having gearbox parts on newspaper on the floor of his bedroom, while the relevant car sat waiting on nail boxes, was a normal part of growing up. His passion has always tended towards old British bangers. He reckons he’s fortunate not to have got caught up in the American muscle scene.
John’s love affair with this Jupiter started in December 2015 when, with some time on his hands during a Christchurch trip, he searched online for ‘cars, before 1970 and in Christchurch’.

Is your classic or custom car restoration stalled, or in need of a refresh, or perhaps you are looking for experts to rebuild that recent import project out of Europe or the ‘States?
