Ross pair race at Taupō

Phill Ross in action

Phill Ross and cousin Nick – of Cambridge family civil construction business C and R Developments – will be racing at Taupō when the V8 Utes join forces with the SuperV8s over three days starting tomorrow.

The opening round of the NZV8 Utes championship will be raced at Taupo International Motorsport Park and being part of the Super V8 series means bigger fields.

“After discussing with our current teams and drivers, there was a clear desire to have the V8 Utes join our Super V8 Series,” promoter Gary Lathrope said.

Brad Kroef, in a Heron Constructionbacked Ford FG, is defending his title against a field which includes his dad Greg.

The V8 Utes series is the one category keeping alive the Ford and Holden rivalry. Phill Ross will feature in his Holden ute Nick competes in another V8 category.
