For those that I haven’t caught up with over Christmas and New Year I hope you had a great time and all the best for 2013! We have certainly been busy with a slightly ruff start to the season so I do apologise for not having sent out reports sooner, I have previously put a couple on the www.daniel eggleton.co.nz website but have attached the latest ones over the Christmas period where we’ve only had a couple of days of less between meetings. We were lucky enough over this period to not have any major damage which made life a lot easier for all of us to ensure we kept on top of car maintenance between meetings. We didn’t make the Boxing Day rain-out at Western Springs due to the Sprintcar GP at Bay Park on the same night but are aware Andrew from Elf Lubricants, one of our sponsors had a large incident that night in the Midget class and we hope you have a speedy recovery!
We are truly excited over last night’s result at the New Zealand Sprintcar Championships where the Vernon & Vazey / ENZED car placed 3rd! There are many factors which have gone into this result, none more so than the help of my sponsors and the hard effort the team puts in and we came out with a proud podium result behind American Peter Muprhy in 1st and fellow New Zealander Dean Brindle in 2nd.
We’ve got some great inboard shots on our Youtube Channel at www.youtube.com/nzkarter and I will be uploading the feature video as soon as possible. Whether you have a Facebook or not you can view our supporters page at www.facebook.com/deggleton78 which we keep up to date every meeting as well as some behind the scenes stuff. I’ve also attached some larger photos than in the reports so they are a bit clearer, some are really spectacular shots!
We are all exhausted from the past 2 weeks of racing and look forward to a little break now until our next meetings, as we learnt at the start of the season you can’t predict the ups and downs in this sport but we certainly hope to continue with promising results!
